It is not like the Green Bay Packers to get into a battle of words with opponents leading up to a game. Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall feels the latest bulletin board material came from Green Bay's locker room slighting his work ethic and ability.
The soon to be Pro Bowler called Sunday, "the biggest game of my career," and considers it "personal" to face a team he invites to cover him man-to-man.
Green Bay limited him to two catches for 24 yards during a Week 2 Bears loss at Lambeau Field.
"I had this game marked since we played them last."I heard exactly what the corner Tramon Williams was saying after the game," Marshall said. "Charles Woodson and those guys do a lot of talking. Coach Capers did an amazing job of game planning us and game planning me. I didn't beat double coverage and triple coverage or whatever they were throwing at us. I take it as a slap in my face when guys talk about my lack of ability to do something against them when they have help all over the place."
"I'm not going to use the word hate," Marshall added, "but I really dislike the Green Bay Packers and their players."
Marshall currently leads the NFL in receptions with 101 and ranks No. 2 in the league in receiving yards with 1,342. The receiver invited the Packers to back up their talk with play as opposed to schemes.
After the Packers defeated the Bears 23-10 on Sept. 13, Woodson made scathing remarks about Cutler and the Bears receivers.
