Brandon Marshall: I absolutely hate playing against Brandon Carr

It didn’t work out well for the Giants a couple of weeks ago, but Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall is doing some talking ahead of Monday’s matchup with the Cowboys.

The difference is that Marshall isn’t saying anything that will show up on a bulletin board unless there’s a bulletin board devoted to people saying nice things about cornerback Brandon Carr. Marshall avoided any guarantees of victory or bloodshed, choosing instead to talk about how much he dreads facing a player with Carr’s ability.

“I don’t like playing against Brandon Carr,” Marshall said, via the Dallas Morning News. ‘He presents a lot of tough challenges throughout a game. You’ll notice he changes up his game when he plays against bigger receivers. He’s strong. He’s physical. He plays that way against guys like myself. I absolutely hate the matchup. It’s like playing chess out there with him. Every single play is a battle. He just makes you work so hard.”

It will be interesting to see how the Cowboys deploy their pass coverage against the Bears. Alshon Jeffery is coming off a monster game in the loss to the Vikings and teams will have to choose how to defend a team with two receivers that can hurt you. Based on Marshall’s comments, they might be wise to put Carr on Marshall while devoting some extra help to Jeffery’s side of the field.

Unless, of course, that’s just what Marshall’s trying to get them to do.

    He’s crazy…Crazy like a fox.

    THAT is how you talk about an upcoming opponent. As a Pats fan, that is exactly how I would want our wide receivers to conduct themselves. Kudos to Marshall for his mature and professional comments.

    Alshon Jeffery has become the Bears best WR. The guy is an absolute beast. I just cant believe I drafted him in all my fantasy leagues and dropped him before he exploded for Julian Edelman. Thanks again Danny Amendola.

    The Bears haven’t beaten a team with a winning record since week one vs the Bengals and that was mainly due to a stupid penalty by a Bengal LB.

    The Bears have gone 3-6 since starting 3-0 and are on a 0-2 tear over the last two weeks.

    The Bears boast the worst running defense in the NFL and are simply putrid overall.

    The Bears are going to start a 34 year old back-up QB for the fourth game in a row vs Dallas Monday night.

    Dallas leads the NFC East.

    Dallas is the underdog for the game being spotted as much as 1 1/2 points.

    Jerry, how much more motivation does your team need?

    Sounds like a Brandon on Brandon crime.

    Shut up Brandon.

    Carr gave up over 300 yds to Megatron in a single game.

    God forbid you have to “work so hard”, you know, making millions of dollars and all..

    Sounds as though one Brandon doesn’t like to work. Suck it up and put your cleats on. it’s what you get paid to do.

    Yes but Megatron is the exception, not the norm.

    Funny, within minutes of each other are posted stories about Andre Johnson and Brandon Marshall. Couldn’t be more different.

  14. smstonerock says: Dec 6, 2013 10:33 AM

    Calvin went for 329 and 2 tds against Carr.

  15. Mr. Wright 212 says: Dec 6, 2013 10:37 AM

    Carr holds probably more than any CB in the NFL, solely because he has to, and WD40 doesn’t work on those stiff hips coming out of his 7 cuts. Amazing how he gets away with so much of it.

    Hey whitecastle, welcome to my world. Only thing I would dispute is that the Packers’ run defense is worse than the Bears’. And they have the stats to prove it.

    Packers’ fan.

    Another reason why Marshall will never be a top tier receiver. “Waaa waaa I have to work hard !”

    He remains an immature and 2nd class player.

    Meet “Good Brandon”. Give it 15 min and you’ll meet “Bad Brandon”.

    Wow.. A player pays a tribute to an opposing player and on here it leads to negative comments about how hard a guy works. The childish haters comments sure get old.

    Marshall is 10 yards away from another 1000 yard season.

    Yes…truly a second class player…

    The Steelers would love to have him.

    And until (if they ever) Dallas wins another Super Bowl in your actual lifetime, because it is apparent that they haven’t, then come and talk to me like Jodeci. Otherwise, how can you fathom jealousy of Dallas? You sound like an Eagles fan with that regular season logic.
