Who's Brandon Marshall going with - McCown or Cutler?

Published Add your comment

There's a quarterback controversy brewing in Chicago between Jay Cutler and Josh McCown - a battle that could divide the locker room.

Star wide receiver Brandon Marshall has been clear in his support for current starter Cutler, but he admits there's been 'chatter' in the locker room suggesting support for deposed back-up McCown.

"I'm gonna be honest with you, there is a little chatter," Marshall told Jay Mohr's Fox Sports radio show.

"There's a human-element side of things in the sporting world.

"You have a quarterback like Josh McCown playing so hot, not only playing great ball for the Bears, but he's one of the hotter QBs in the NFL.

"He was up there with Tom Brady and Peyton Manning, those few weeks he was leading us. So naturally there's going to be a little chatter."

Bears coach Marc Trestman has been consistent in his support for Cutler, who was the starting quarterback before injury struck mid-way through the season.

McCown threw for over 300 yards in three of his last four starts, throwing just one interception and eight touchdowns in the process.

But Cutler's return from injury against the Browns saw McCown return to bench duties. Back in the saddle, Cutler had a solid game, throwing for 265 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Bears faces the Philadelphia Eagles this week before a season-ending match-up against the Green Bay Packers in Week 17.
