Bears receivers coach Darryl Drake refused to sugarcoat the dropped passes by Brandon Marshall during Thursdayís first day of training camp.

"Heís still trying to get used to it, but he understands and knows that thatís something that weíve got to work on," Drake said. "We canít drop the football. I expect him to make those non-routine catches. And he expects to make him. Iím going to be tough on him when he doesnít."

It was somewhat of a tough day for the offense in general, although that is to be the expected this early in camp with so many new faces. Rookie receiver Alshon Jeffery and running back Kahlil Bell had fumbles.

Quarterback Jay Cutler has some miscommunication at times with Marshall and was picked off by D.J. Moore. Cutler made up for it with some extremely difficult short passes in tight spaces.


The guy who appeared to be the most consistent Thursday, at least in terms of catching the ball, was rookie tight end Evan Rodriguez, who struggled during minicamp.

Offensive coordinator Mike Tice wasnít the least bit pleased with the offensive output on Day 1.

"You can't put the ball on the ground," Tice said. "You cannot put the ball on the ground. And you can't jump off-sides. I know it was the first day and we're working a lot of things on the line of scrimmage, but we're also coming off of an offseason with a bunch of practices and a bunch of times that we did it, we did it right. We can't come out the first day and look like we never did it before. We're not going to put up with that."

On a positive note, Matt Forte looked stronger and faster than ever while backup quarterback Jason Campbell displayed a starterís arm. JíMarcus Webb saw most of the reps at first-team left tackle over Chris Williams, while Gabe Carimi got his repaired knee tested by a blazing quick pass rush from Julius Peppers.

Defensively, Brian Urlacher wore his brace to protect the left knee he injured at the end of last season. Urlacher practiced without restriction, as promised. Defensive tackle Matt Toeaina played with his right hand wrapped and in a cast. He broke the hand during offseason workouts and is expected to have the cast removed tomorrow.

Both starting safeties, Major Wright and Chris Conte, seemed to have improved in terms of breaking toward the ball and overall communication. And rookie defensive end Shea McClellin, who worked primarily with the third team, showed a nice speed burst while pressuring Campbell during 7-on- 7 drills.

Marshall is one of those rare physical specimens who entices every GM and coach and they think they are the ones who can milk all of his talent for their team. The problem is that he is a mentally weak player who will always let you down when it matters. Even if the Bears part ways with him in a yr or 2, some other GM will take a chance on him based purely on his 'potential'.

First off, not sure how this relates to CURRENT Dolphins news. Secondly, not only will it probably keep dropping passes in Chicago, he will also be the reason Cutler leada the league in INTs again this year.

Forgive my spelling. This was sent from my phone.

I'm sure he will lead the league in drops and punched women. He is a scumbag and deserves to be in jail.

Marshall sucks.

When I was at the other site you came over there and argued with me on how great Marshall was. I argued back that he sucks.

Now you agree with me huh? Nice.

We should have packaged him in a trade up for RG3. Rams need/ still need a number 1.
