Receiver Brandon Marshall is crediting the trade that sent him to Chicago as a “career and life saving event,” and he discussed the move and his recent extension keeping him in a Bears uniform through 2017.
“I don’t think I’d be sitting in this position talking about an extension [if not for the trade to Chicago],” Marshall said. “I probably wouldn’t even be having the success that I was having on the field in that environment [in Miami]. It wasn’t right for me.”
The Bears kick off preseason against the Philadelphia Eagles on August 8th. There are plenty of great seats and cheap tickets. Be sure to get yours now!
The Chicago Bears barely escaped Ohio with a victory Sunday afternoon against the Cleveland Browns. The game was a close 38-31 offensive point fest and the Bears overcame two early Jay Cutler interceptions to get the win. Cutler was reinstated as the starting quarterback even though Josh McCown’s performance in Cutler’s absence has reignited the fan base.
“I can only imagine the commentators and the fans back at home after the first and second pick, what they were saying,” Running Back Brandon Marshall said of Cutler’s early performance. “I’m sure they were ready to hang him.”
This week against the Eagles, the Bears hope to take away the one thing that makes them tick like a clock, running back LeSean McCoy, the NFL’s leading rusher with 1,343 yards thus far this season. In order to do that, the Bears are relying on OLB Lance Briggs to return from injury after being away seven weeks.
Great seats and tickets remain for this classic NFC match up.
There was a moment in the 4th quarter of the game between the Chicago Bears and the St. Louis Rams that the score was down to six points after Devin Hester, he of kickoff/punt return fame, showed why he is so dangerous and broke through tackles to get into the end zone on a punt return. Then the flags fell calling the play back on a holding call by Safety Craig Stelz.
“On the sideline, a few of us were talking,” receiver Brandon Marshall said. “This game is just so tough. National Football League, you never know. It seems like these last few years, it’s going down to the last few games, and it looks like it’s going to be the same this year.
“We had an opportunity to take advantage of what else happened in our division, but we didn’t. That just goes to show you how tough this game is.”
Penalties also killed the Bears as they were flagged 10 times for 84 yards and in the end, the Rams blew out the Bears 42-21.
The Bears still have a shot at the playoffs and look to right the ship against the Minnesota Vikings December 1st. Great seats and tickets are still available!
