The Chicago Bears lost to the Miami Dolphins 27-14 on Sunday in dismal fashion and after the game, wide receiver Brandon Marshall could be heard spouting a passionate diatribe in the locker room.
Marshall isn't happy
Marshall was furious with his team for losing such an important game and wasn't afraid to let his feelings be known, he proceeded to call out teammates including quarterback Jay Cutler but unfortunately for the wideout his tirade could be heard by everyone.
Upon pondering his actions, Marshall has no regrets over what he said or the way in which he conducted himself, his only problem is that anyone outside of the team were able to hear him.
During Inside the NFL on Tuesday, Marshall says he wouldn't have changed anything about the outburst, he explained:
"My voice was heard, The only thing I regret is that the door wasn't closed. I wouldn't change any of my reactions, because they came from my heart and that's how I felt and that's how I still feel. I think we have all the coaches we need. I think we have all the players that we need to get the job done. And 3-4 is unacceptable, but we have everything that we need to turn this ship right now."
For a city like Chicago who love their Bears, a 0-3 record on their home turf is unacceptable and Marshall was certainly speaking on behalf of a lot of hurt fans in the Windy City.
Marshall was interviewed inside the locker room after the loss on Sunday and he said: "Unacceptable; shouldn't have lost today, shouldn't be 3-4, [The] offense [has] got to play better. It's as simple as that."
The Bears boast an incredibly potent offence which showcase stars like Marshall, Matt Forte, Alshon Jeffrey alongside gunslinger Jay Cutler, their record certainly shows a big underachievement so far this season.
Continuing on Inside the NFL, Marshall explained that his team just simply aren't playing up to its ability.
"The problem right now is that we are not performing to our ability, We just need to gel, we need to continue to come together, but the time is now. We are halfway through the season and if any locker room has the guys to get it done, we do. ... We can get this thing turned around."
Jay Cutler was in particular one person that the wideout singled out for criticism but the pair have played with each other for many seasons and have a great understanding.
Marshall has always vouched for Cutler despite his perception to the general public, if anyone has the ability to reach Cutler and kick him into gear, it's Marshall.
Here is a brief look at what the wide receiver has had to say about his quarterback:
