The Chicago Bears are unraveling…Brandon Marshall knows it and he’s out to stop the bleeding. He’s making Sunday’s game with the Packers personal, calling guys out, using props and dropping metaphors, quote: “I’m not going to use the word hate, but I really dislike the Green Bay Packers and their players.” I’d rather hear that, then some B.S. about how much he admires Green Bay when you know he doesn’t.
Problem is, he chased that by carrying out a Charlie Brown Christmas tree, bumped his theme song and tried to make it a metaphor for the Bears’ season. One problem, big dawg, Chuck spends every Christmas depressed, and devasted. That kid is a life suck; the ultimate cooler: he brings everyone down. He’s punching bag. A complete buzz kill.
Look, I love that Marshall is trying to lead from the front but dropping Chuck Brown’s name is not the way to do it. You know what they need even more than leadership? Blocking and somebody to get in the way of Clay Matthews this time.
