Brandon Marshall hates playing Brandon Carr


The Chicago Bears are playing the Dallas Cowboys on Monday Night Football in an interesting match up. The Cowboys are fighting to stay in first place in their division while the Chicago Bears are trying to stay in the NFC North race.

The Bears have a pair of dynamic receivers in Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall, while the Cowboys secondary is struggling with injuries. That match up seems to favor the Bears, but maybe the Cowboys have an advantage.

“I don’t like playing against Brandon Carr,” Marshall said, via the Dallas Morning News. ‘He presents a lot of tough challenges throughout a game. You’ll notice he changes up his game when he plays against bigger receivers. He’s strong. He’s physical. He plays that way against guys like myself. I absolutely hate the matchup. It’s like playing chess out there with him. Every single play is a battle. He just makes you work so hard.”

With Jeffery coming off a monster game, he might have been pegged to be covered by Carr. If it is true that Marshall doesn’t like playing against Carr they might want to leave the corner on him and focus on stopping Jeffery.

    Marshall’s comments read more like gamesmanship than respect for Carr to me.

      I agree, but how often does Marshall give a CB credit? I’d like to see if Scandrick can step up against Jeffery, or better yet, let Claiborne earn his 1st round draft status again (if he is not still hurt).

    Sound like the Cowboys have half the issued covered, what about Jefferies, he the one who leads them in yardage.
