Chicago Bears mercurial wide receiver Brandon Marshall is one of the most talented and emotional players in the league.
It’s no surprise that months after being held to his worst outing of the season, a 2 catch 24 yard game against the Packers, Marshall is ready to go and running his mouth to stir the pot.
Marshall spoke USA Today recently and let it be known he “hates the Packers,” and this is “the biggest game of his life.”
“I don’t like the Green Bay Packers. I’m not going to use the word ‘hate,’ but I really dislike the Packers and their players,” Marshall said. “But you know what? The talk has to back it up. We’ll go out there and do everything we have to do to get a win.”
Marshall wouldn’t get into specifics about his hate for the Packers, but did point out that Charles Woodson and Tramon Williams were very disrespectful last game.
“you’ll have to go on Google or something,”
Marshall is also daring the Packers to play him one on one this game.
“I didn’t beat double and triple coverage or whatever they were throwing at me. I take it as a slap in my face when guys are talking about my lack of ability to do something against them when they have help all over the place,” Marshall said. “I’m looking forward to one-on-one coverage. Hopefully, those guys, in a game like this, will go to their coach and say, ‘Let me have him. I want Brandon Marshall. I want to stop Brandon Marshall.’ Let’s see what happens.”
“I don’t know. I mean, the way some people talk is like they did that. I would love their play to back up their talk,” Marshall said.
