Marshall: 'When you are looking at 3-6, there’s not much hope'

The Bears lack confidence, and probably with good reason, Brandon Marshall said Tuesday in his weekly taping of Showtime’s “Inside the NFL.” The wide receiver called Sunday’s 55-14 loss to the Packers a low point.

“Man, that was probably one of the most demoralizing games I’ve been in,” he said. “I mean, I’m at a loss for words. I think everyone is at this point. …

“When adversity hits, what type of person are you going to be? Are you going to give up or are you going to fight? And that’s where we are at right now. … Life is tough right now. You know, walking outside, going to the grocery stores, looking at the fans in the eyes. This is bad all around.”

The Bears lack confidence, said Marshall, who called his left ankle injury a sprain and reiterated his Sunday statement that we will play against the Vikings.

“Confidence is everything,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if you are in professional sports, or if you are the CEO, or if you are a teacher, or if you are starting a new company. Confidence is everything. And when you lose your confidence, it’s over. You don’t have a chance. And right now, that’s where we are at. …

“It all starts with confidence. When you are looking at 3-6, there’s not much hope. There’s not much confidence. That’s just the reality of this. It has nothing to do with the Chicago Bears. It’s just the reality of life.”
