Despite the fact that the Lions beat the Bears this past Sunday, wide receiver Brandon Marshall looks at Detroit as their little brothers.
“They’re the little brother who grew a little bit, may be a little taller than the bigger brother. He’s not stronger,” Marshall said Monday on WMVP-AM, per NFL.com via the Chicago Tribune. “He’s not better than the big brother at anything. But it’s just that one day, he says ‘I’m fed up. I’m done. I’m going to punch my brother in the face.'”
“It’s the little brother (complex). The big brother wants to go out and play with his friends and the little brother is annoying. ‘Hey, can I go?'” Marshall continued, laughing. “No, you can’t go, Detroit Lions. Sit back. Sit in your little city. Know what I mean? Fix your financial problems and all of that. You can’t come with us right now.”
Marshall claims the Lions took “borderline illegal shots” at Jay Cutler and Josh McCown this past week.
“Right now they’ve got the best of us.” Marshall said. “They beat us. Twice. They swept us. What matters is when we see them in the playoffs. So it’ll be a great show. It’s going to be tough. But I guarantee it’s not going to go down like it did the first two games.”
Whether Marshall likes it or not, it looks like their little brother is going to win the NFC North.
