Bears' Marshall blasts PackersLAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) - Chicago Bears receiver Brandon Marshall says he has never disliked a team as much as the Packers.
Although he says he wouldn't use the word "hate," he has "never felt this strong in sports" about another team or group of opposing players.
During his weekly session with reporters yesterday, Marshall called this weekend's home game against Green Bay "personal" and said he hopes Packers cornerbacks request to cover him one on one.
His feelings seemed to stem from a 23-10 loss at Green Bay earlier in the year in which he caught just two passes for 24 yards. He says he doesn't respect "their players talking about how awesome of a job they (do) shutting down certain players."
