Brandon Marshall understands he might have offended some people with his demand for accountability following the Chicago Bears' loss to Green Bay last weekend.

He says a comment like that is "almost guaranteed that you're going to rub some people the wrong way." He also says some "might respond to it in a positive way."

Things can't get much worse for the Bears (8-6). They've dropped five of six after a 7-1 start and need help to make the playoffs even if they win at Arizona and Detroit.

While the Packers clinched the NFC North, Chicago managed just 190 yards and Marshall was a wreck afterward. He said everyone involved with the offense should be held accountable "even if that means jobs."
