From the Chicago Sun-Times:
For as much as coach Marc Trestman preaches spreading the ball around, he wasn’t overly bothered by quarterback Jay Cutler’s use of the “Marshall Plan” in the Bears’ 33-28 victory against the San Diego Chargers at Soldier Field on Thursday. Cutler threw five passes all game and all five were sent toward wide receiver/favorite target Brandon Marshall. He completed four of them for 38 yards and a five-yard touchdown.On an interception Cutler threw while targeting Marshall:
“That specific play was a force against a coverage that I think I can coach better — I really do,” Trestman said. “He’s going to take accountability for it because I know that’s who he is. But I’m just saying we have to get better at it. There’s a time to force the ball and use your arm and put it up into man-to-man coverage when there’s a single defender and a single player, but that wasn’t really one of those situations.
