Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall recently stated his belief that teammate Alshon Jeffery is a more talented player than himself, but he also went on to add that he believes he personally had a down year this past season.

“I didn’t have a chance to really work. I had a surgery, so that put me back, and I didn’t really like the way my game was last year,” Marshall said, via NFL.com. “I’m going hard and I’m really going to revamp my whole game and come back a totally different player, something you guys never seen before.”

If Marshall can improve himself in the offseason and come back with the best season of his career, the Bears offensive attack could be a new animal in 2014.

“Kind of like the artist, like the musician you know how they say, ‘This next album is going to be the killer! This next album, you guys aren’t going to know anything! It’s going to be totally different! This is it!’” he said. “This is how I’m doing my game. I’m approaching it like I’m an artist.”

Whether Marshall will turn this motivation into on-field results remains to be seen, but the Bears fans will surely be hopeful.
