"I've got to do a better job of putting myself in position to beat double coverage, and trying to make myself quarterback-friendly so I can try to make a play for our offense," Marshall said after Sunday's 26-18 loss to the New Orleans Saints. "We're struggling a little bit. ... So the past few weeks have been frustrating."
Marshall consciously put the perceived lack of production on his own shoulders.
"As a receiver, you always want the ball," he said. "You know, your mentality is to think it's always better when you're gettin' in. But, you know, coach Trestman is an offensive guru. Jay's a good quarterback. We're going to do what's best for the team."
"You can't keep doubling (Marshall) and letting another receiver go for 200 yards," Cutler said. "It's silly to keep doing that. He's going to get his."
When he gets his, perhaps Marshall can retire that F-word for the season.
