Brandon Marshall Calls Out Packers
CREATED Dec. 12, 2012
A win over the rival Bears and the Packers win their 2nd consecutive NFC North title.
The urgency may have been heightened even further today after Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall called it the biggest game of his career.
"I don't like the Green Bay Packers," he said. "I'm not going to use the word hate, but I really dislike the Green Bay Packers and their players."
Just like that, the rivalry has become a little more interesting.
Marshall was limited to 2 catches for 24 yards in week two. Something he credits Dom Capers' schemes for.
"I heard exactly what the corner, [Tramon Williams]? I heard what he said after the game."
Some Packers comments after their win earlier this year were towards Bears quarterback Jay Cutler and his persistence on throwing the ball into tight spaces.
Today, comments coming from the Pack were all business.
"All we have to do is go out there and execute the game plan, so we don't get into all the trash talking," said safety M.D. Jennings
"We're coming in hungry," said quarterback Aaron Rodgers. "We're going down there. It's always a tough opponent and it's a good game. We've played a number of close games in the past and this will be another one."
Not to mention locking up another division title in time for the holidays.
"It's one game at a time. This ones very important, it can allow us to reach our first goal and that's what we're going for."
Brandon Marshall has a different gift on his wish list.
"Hopefully guys in games like these go to their coach and say, 'I want Brandon Marshall. I want him one on one in press coverage and see what happens."
