On his way into the locker room, Marshall reportedly encouraged reporters to listen in, though he was only kidding. Sunday's loss was too significant to muster any energy for another high-volume speech.
The Bears might be reaching a critical point with their star receiver, though. Marshall had just three receptions for 35 yards and has been under-performing statistically for a majority of the season.
Now, the onus is on coach Marc Trestman to push the right buttons during the bye week to ensure he doesn't lose his team.
"I'm never a fan of the bye week because obviously I want to get to the next one," Marshall said. "This one's going to be tough. We've got a lot of time to really sit on this one and think about it."
