(CBS) “No Noise” and “Bunker Down.” Those are the messages printed on the front and back of the green camouflage T-shirts the Bears have donned around Halas Hall for the past two weeks.READ MORE: Delivery Driver Shot In Head In Back of The Yards; 18-Year-Old Struck In Thigh
Apparently, the team didn’t get the message.
After the Bears’ deflating 27-14 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday — sending them to 0-3 at home for the first time since 2003 and 3-4 overall — their locker room bunker was filled with noise. Shouting and commotion among the players could be heard down the corridors of Soldier Field.
Inside the locker room, receiver Brandon Marshall said it shouldn’t be any other way given how the team has played.
“You should hear frustration,” Marshall said. “We’re 3-4. This means everything to a lot of guy in this locker room.”
The Bears were built to win with their offense, yet through seven games, they’re averaging 21 points a game, which is below the league average. Given all the financial resources that have been devoted to that side of the ball and the concerted effort to maintain continuity this offseason, it’s frankly unacceptable.
