Packers focused on stopping Bears WR Marshall
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) – Greg Jennings thinks Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall is a genius. Marshall had made headlines when he went off on the rival Green Bay Packers during his weekly media availability. But it was something Marshall said later that Jennings found brilliant: Marshall’s attempt to bait the Packers into matching their cornerbacks up with him man-to-man. Marshall said Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers “did an amazing job of game-planning me” in the teams’ Sept. 13 meeting, in which Marshall caught only two passes for 24 yards in a 23-10 Packers victory. Then, Marshall dared the Packers to try to cover him one-on-one in Sunday’s rematch at Soldier Field. Here’s the bad news for Marshall: There’s no way Capers is going to do that on every down Sunday.
