According to an ESPN.com report, Brandon Marshall's wrath was felt by everyone in the Chicago Bears' locker room after Sunday's home loss to the Miami Dolphins - including starting quarterback (and Marshall's close friend) Jay Cutler.
"We lost, there should be a lot of frustration," Marshall said, via Michael C. Wright's report on Sunday. "You should hear frustration. We're 3-4. Yeah, this means everything to a lot of guys in this locker room. This means a lot."
According to a source cited by Wright, there "are some very selfish individuals in the locker room." Whether that was directed at Marshall or the objects of Marshall's ire is up for interpretation.
Marshall was also asked about allegedly sharp words overheard from Marshall in the direction of kicker Robbie Gould.
"OK, were you in here?" Marshall asked. "Were you in this locker room? This is a team matter. That has nothing to do with you. There's a lot of guys this means a lot to. We're 3-4. We need to play better. That's unacceptable. That's unacceptable. Unacceptable; shouldn't have lost today, shouldn't be 3-4. [The] offense [has] got to play better. It's as simple as that."
The Bears are in crunch time and desperately need to pull things together to get their playoff hopes on track. Whether this locker room incident galvanizes or splits the locker room remains to be seen.
