Expectations for the Bears are rising in the Windy City and Brandon Marshall is doing his best to feed them.
During an interview with Stacey Dales of the NFL Network, Marshall said that he thought it was realistic for the Bears to talk about winning the Super Bowl this season. He’s not the first member of the Bears to express that point of view, but Marshall didn’t stop there when talking about the special nature of this year’s team.
While talking about reuniting with quarterback Jay Cutler and quarterbacks coach Jeremy Bates a few years after all three men were together in Denver, Marshall suggested that it was the kind of story that Steven Spielberg might be interested in.
“I think when it’s all said and done there may be a book or a movie written about it,” Marshall said. “We had a core group of guys there that had everything to win and to see some of those pieces come back together, some big pieces like Jay and I and Jeremy, it’s unheard of.”
While we think you could do worse than Josh McDaniels when it comes to casting a heavy, Marshall might want to hold off on pitching studios and publishing houses until after the Bears season comes to an end. If the Bears do well, there is something intriguing about the reunion and there will be plenty of stories written about it.
Should the Bears crash and burn, though, you’d have a better chance of getting financing for The Cleo Lemon Story in 3-D.
