Bears GM Phil Emery inspired by Brandon Marshall

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears general manager Phil Emery took a calculated risk when he traded two third-round picks to the Miami Dolphins to acquire three-time Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Marshall.

So far, it's been a key move in the team's 4-1 start.

But Emery didn't provide the cursory quote about Marshall. Check it out. Marshall Practice.jpg

"I think that's evident just through his play and his numbers and his statistics," Emery said. "But way beyond what he's provided for us, in terms of offensive firepower, is the person that Brandon is, the leadership he's provided on our field.

"He speaks of professionalism. What he does on the practice field, I admire and I look up to. It tells me in my role, for the team, that I need to continually raise my level. If you watch him on a daily basis on what he does as a professional, going out there to improve himself and to make others around him better, it is a sight to see."
