Bears' locker room gets 'ugly' after equally gross loss to Dolphins

BY foxsports • October 19, 2014

The Chicago Bears are now 3-4 and have yet to win at home this season, and it may be starting to take its toll on the team.

After a lackluster 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, frustrations apparently boiled over in the Bears' locker room, with various sources citing yelling, scuffling and multiple references to an "ugly" situation.

Mercurial wide receiver Brandon Marshall and guard Kyle Long reportedly were at the center of much of the arguing, though they weren't necessarily arguing with each other.

Marshall seemed to be more upset with the team in general, although ESPN cites a source as saying that he called out Bears quarterback Jay Cutler specifically:

Long apparently took a shot at Bears fans, which usually never ends well:

Long tried to explain his comments, but it's still a little unclear what he meant:

Whatever precipitated the players' remarks, what is clear is that the Chicago Bears are a bit of a mess right now.

"This was a very, very disappointing loss to our football team," coach Marc Trestman said.

The Bears have lost five of their last seven games at home, so they're gonna need to start pulling things together, not rending it all asunder.
