(CBS) While Bears receiver Brandon Marshall’s postgame locker room rant after Sunday’s loss to the Dolphins has been analyzed ad nauseam by this point, Thursday did mark the first time that quarterback and good friend Jay Cutler — who was reportedly a target of Marshall’s tirade — commented on the situation.

“No,” Cutler said when asked if Marshall crossed the line. “He didn’t come near me. He didn’t say my name. I don’t think he attacked anyone personally what he was saying.READ MORE: Jubilant And Inspired Fans, Booming Businesses Near Wintrust Arena As Chicago Sky Win WNBA Championship
“He’s an emotional guy. Whenever he gets frustrated, he’s going to get emotional most of the time. He’s going to speak from the heart, and he’s going to make sure that everyone else around him hears him. So it wasn’t anything that caught us off guard or (something that was) off-putting. It was frustration coming out and him just letting us know that it’s important to him.”

“Some people are indifferent, some people are responding well to it,” Cutler said. “Like I said, I don’t think anybody’s taking it negatively. It was a frustrating loss for all of us. I think once guys left the locker room, that’s kind of where it died. We moved on Monday and Tuesday and we practiced Wednesday. It was just one of those things.”
