Brian Cassella, Chicago Tribune The Lions beat the Bears 21-19 on Sunday to take a two-game lead on the Bears in the NFC North.  The Lions have an edge in record (6-3 to 5-4) and also hold the tiebreaker over the Bears by sweeping the season series. Brandon Marshall, the loud mouth Bears receiver, showed his brain capacity Monday afternoon.  Filling in on “The Jay Cutler Show” on ESPN 1000, Marshall jokingly referred to the Lions as the Bears’ “little brother.” “It’s the little brother that kind of grew up a little bit. He may be a little taller than the big brother. He’s not stronger. He’s not better than the big brother at anything. But that one day, he just says, ‘I’m fed up. I’m done. I’m gonna punch my brother in the face.’” If that wasn’t cute enough, Marshall had to get cuter – attacking the city of Detroit and then guaranteeing a win over the Lions in the playoffs. “It’s the little brother that, big brother wants to go out and play with his friends and the little brother is annoying, (saying), ‘Hey, can I go?’  No, you can’t go, Detroit Lions. Sit back. Sit in your little city. Fix your financial problems and all of that, you know. You can’t come with us right now. But right now, they’ve got the best of us. They beat us twice. They swept us. But what matters is when we see them in the playoffs. It’ll be a great show. It’s gonna be tough. But I guarantee it’s not gonna go down like it did the first two games.” I would tell Marshall to suck it up and act professional.  But that’s not who he is.  He’s as unprofessional and whiny as they come.  If you came off as even a smidge intelligent, Brandon, somebody might care what you have to say.  Ask the University of Michigan and Mike Hart how good the ‘little brother” put down has been to them.  Michigan State has won five of six in the series since Hart dubbed the Spartans the Wolvies’ little brother. The Lions have had better regular season records two of the last three years.  Aside from last year when the Bears went 10-6, Marshall’s teams have been no better than one game above .500.  Including last year, he’s played on two teams that finished above .500 in the six years he’s been in the league.  With Cutler week-to-week with a jerk injury, the Bears will be lucky to make the playoffs.  They’re currently on the outside looking in. Take your medicine, Brandon Marshall.  And then take a note from Calvin Johnson – shut your mouth and play football. [Photo credit]
