Chicago Bears’ terrible start to the 2014 NFL season got a whole lot worse on Sunday when they were edged out by the Miami Dolphins at home 27-14 as they fell to 3-4 on the season.

But the one thing you can say about the Bears is that they are an honest bunch, and the majority of the starting roster faced the media after the game and gave the frank assessment of another disappointing afternoon.

One of the players to give a brutal assessment of the Bears’ fourth defeat in seven NFL games this season was star receiver Brandon Marshall, who had yet another afternoon to forget after he made just 48 yards receiving during the game.

"We make the same mistakes. We've got to protect the football. We've got to execute the game plan. We've got to adjust when things don't go as we saw on film,” Brandon Marshall admitted post-game.

Chicago starting quarterback Jay Cutler had another poor performance after a season to forget in terms of turnovers, and there were two more for the stats sheet against an impressive Dolphins’ defense. But despite Cutler’s below par effort, Marshall still has faith in the out-of-sorts QB.

"I don't know. My confidence is there. Alshon Jeffery's confidence is there. Martellus Bennett's confidence is there. Yeah, it's there. Jay's a gunslinger. Jay's our guy. Jay's our leader. Listen, we have to do a better job. This is unacceptable,” Marshall added.
