I normally wait until Bears Huddle to watch press conferences. I went to the official website to get the full feel.
I love Marshall's passion. I think he and Cutler have found a home, as long as we have a decent team that doesn’t make them want to yell at coaches and other players. Even though I’m not a yeller, my father was. So, I don’t have a problem with it. More importantly, I understand it. When you have ultra talent with a passionate personality, like my father, you need to find a situation that brings out the good in you and not the bad in you. If you’re in a situation that brings out the bad in you, then that means that you aren’t on a good enough team. Both Marshall and Cutler have matured greatly in recent years, which means that they’ll have greater tolerance moving forward. But, there are still limits to the tolerance that people like them will ever have. We need to make sure that they continue to have a good home going forward.
They need a real OC. They need Lovie, who knows little about offense, to at least be able to hire a real OC, or they need a new head coach who can run both a decent offense and decent defense.
They are also sold on Forte and Jeffrey. Please make this work, Emery.
Not that I need anything to get up for the Packers- but it is on... Usually I prefer the players to shy away from pregame smack- but I think this team needs a shot of confidence... Marshall believes they will beat the Packers on Sunday and so do I....

Not going to lie, I kind of got a man crush on 15.
Yeah, honestly it's hard not to.
When he wasn't playing for us I kind of chalked him up as just another one of those guys that's more thug than anything. Now that he's in Chicago, you listen to him talk and realize he's not just some idiot. The guy is pretty damn smart. And you know what? He goes out and makes play after play. He stays in Chicago more than 4 years and he'll own 90% of the receiving records. If not all of them.
I love Marshall, but I'm not a fan of this at all. He should focus this emotional energy in the locker room instead of using it to create bulletin board material for them.
I doubt it matters - the Packers are coming in flying high while the Bears are slumping. Not many of us seem to be giving our own team much of a chance so I just don't see where this harms things or rocks the boat too much.
While I necessarily agree with what he said, Jermichael Finley made this comment about Urlacher not in the Bears lineup:

Urlacher's response was a CLASSIC:

"I hope we can duplicate that as well because it won't hurt my feelings if we go on and win the Super Bowl without me like they did without him.
