Bears' star wideout Brandon Marshall has come out and defended his post-game comments in the aftermath of Chicago's disappointing home loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.
Marshall certainly let his feelings be known after the Bears' fourth loss of the season, with many experts believing he was taking aim at under fire quarterback Jay Cutler.

- Forte, Jeffery and Marshall will propel Chicago Bears to greatness
Jay Cutler and the Chicago Bears are under pressure. The Bears were predicted for great things this year but for whatever reason things haven't worked out for Chicago yet.
A 3-4 record might not be a disaster for most teams, but for the Bears it's certainly that right now. As wideout Brandon Marshall put it at the weekend, the current situation for the Bears is currently "unacceptable."
Still on good terms
But Marshall has had to defend his comments after his views were misconstrued as a personal attack on Cutler. The wideout has played down Sunday's remarks with Marshall simply saying his relationship with Cutler is great.
“I have a really nice condo. And guess what? Jay Cutler built that condo. We’re great," Marshall told the Chicago Tribune. "We’re great. You know, we’re like brothers. I think Coach (Marc) Trestman said it the best. But if I have a problem with Jay Cutler I’m going to go to Jay Cutler. If Jay Cutler has a problem with me, he’s going to come to me. We have that type of relationship.”
Chicago can rebound
Even though the Bears have started the season extremely slow, there is still time for them to turn things around. Tied third for interceptions on defense, they are doing as much as they can without the ball to help their offense, which is currently struggling.
But the good thing for Chicago is that their offense can certainly improve. Once Jay Cutler regains his confidence in arguably the best receiving duo in the NFL, the Bears will surely shoot up the NFL standings. On their best day, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery can terrorise defenses, and expect them to get back to their best sooner rather than later.
