Brandon Marshall takes exception with Suh's hit on Cutler

Chicago Bears coach Lovie Smith didn’t see anything wrong with the hit Ndamukong Suh put on his quarterback Jay Cutler Monday night.

Or if he did, Smith wasn’t about to share it with media after the Bears defeated the Detroit Lions 13-7 at Soldier Field. Cutler suffered what the team has described as bruised ribs when Suh sacked him in the second quarter, slamming him to the turf. No penalty was called on the play.

“That’s football,” Smith said. “No one is trying to hurt anyone or anything like that out there. It was just a tough hard-nosed game. Suh’s a good football player. He’s playing hard, trying to win a game. I don’t think so.”

But Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall took exception to the action afterward.

A Suh. What u did to Jay wasn't cool. Great players don't have to do that,” Marshall wrote on his Twitter account following the game.

“A Suh. Something I've learned and now passing down to you. Succeed with character,” Marshall added.

Cutler didn’t complain about the hit afterward and Suh said there was nothing dirty about it. Suh later tried to check on Cutler.
