Brandon Marshall is upset with the Chicago Bears latest loss. How much? Enough to suggest that jobs be at stake.
“Everyone on offense needs to be held accountable, even if it means jobs,” Marshall said. “There’s no excuse. We still have two games left, there’s still hope, but we need to be held accountable.”
“It’s been the same way all year. It’s the same thing every single game. We need to be held accountable,” Marshall said. “What I got to do is try my best to keep it together and not let this affect me because it’s starting to affect me more than it should. And I love this game, I’m very passionate about this game, and right now it’s affecting me way too much.”
A moment later Marhsall ended the interview and walked away.
The Bears offense has been overly predictable in recent weeks. Green Bay double teamed Marhsall all day. Still no one else on the Bears stepped up. Receivers Devin Hester and Alshon Jeffrey combining for zero catches.
Marshall finished the day with six catches for 56 yards and a touchdown in the Bears 21-13 loss. His 101 catches are five more then Calvin Johnson.

If the Chicago Bears had any real intention of participating in the 2012 NFL playoffs then a win on Sunday at home against the NFC North leading Green Bay Packers was a must.

Brian Urlacher has seen his Chicago Bears lose their last 3 games and 4 out of their last 5. Urlacher has been sidelined with a hamstring injury and has apparently been paying a lot more attention to the media and the fans.

Urlacher bristled when told that fans and the media were being critical...
Other than Brandon Marshall, no other Chicago wide receiver caught a pass against the Packers. The lack of secondary production has become a trend for the Bears’ passing attack this season.
While the Chicago Bears have already listed linebacker Brian
Urlacher and cornerback Tim Jennings as out for tomorrow’s pivotal matchup
against the Green Bay Packers, the team could also be without defensive linemen
Henry Melton and Shea McClellin.

entire week of practice and have been ruled out for the Packers game...

As Chicago's slide continued Sunday with a home loss to NFC North rival Green Bay, boos rained down on the Bears from frustated fans. And linebacker Brian Urlacher didn't like it. The Bears fell to 8-6 with their fifth loss in the past six games and are in danger of missing the playoffs after seemingly being a shoo-in a few weeks ago. Urlacher, the 34-year-old veteran...
(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) Lovie Smith isn't going to get caught up in any outside discussion about his job security with the Bears scuffling along and in danger of missing the playoffs after a 7-1 start.

The Chicago Bears came into the 2012 NFL Season with a goal, to once again become Super Bowl Champions. The Bears missed the playoffs last season due to a handful of injuries and a poor offense. They lacked an elite play making WR and a consistent Quarterback.
So the Bears made a statement in the past NFL off-season. They went out and snagged...

Like death and taxes, the Packers' defensive dominance of Jay Cutler is practically a sure thing. The Bears gave up two first-round picks, a third-round pick and Kyle Orton in hopes of getting their championship quarterback. Instead, Cutler is 1-7 against Green Bay.
Losers of four of their last five games and hanging precariously on the NFC playoff fence, the Chicago Bears attempt to slay their bitter rival Green Bay in a key NFC North match-up at Soldier Field on Sunday. The 8-5 Bears have stumbled since a 7-1 start, thanks to a porous offensive line and some key injuries. Unlike the first half [...]
If you live outside the Chicago city limits, you probably can’t smell it, but there’s a whole lotta stink emanating from Soldier Field these days. The Chicago Bears train wreck continued careening out of control Sunday afternoon in front of another sellout crowd of 62,534. Why these people continue to pay the fourth-highest ticket [...]
