Bears receiver Brandon Marshall caught passes from Jay Cutler for three seasons in Denver, and he’s excited about doing it again this season in Chicago. But he says what really excites him is what he sees from Cutler in the huddle.
Marshall told reporters today that he’s been blown away by how much Cutler has grown as a leader since the two were last teammates in 2008.
“He’s amazing,” Marshall said. “We all know the type of arm Jay has, but I’ve been away from Jay for three years and the biggest change I see in Jay is his leadership. How he’s teaching guys and how he’s leading us and inspiring us day in and day out. Man, we can’t ask for a better leader, better captain, and I’m excited to really see what we do as an offense because of him. We all know what he can do physically, but where he’s at in the mental part of the game is a sight to see.”
With the way Marshall raves about Cutler, the Bears don’t have to worry about whether their quarterback and their No. 1 receiver are on the same page. Where Cutler leads, Marshall is happy to follow.
