Brandon Marshall says the Jets remain a united team, according to Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press.
Speaking after Wednesday's practice, Marshall downplayed any similiarities to the 2014 Chicago Bears, who went 5-11 in his last season in Chicago.
Marshall also said the siuation in Chicago was "100 times worse" and that Jets head coach Todd Bowles is a primary reason the players are still a cohesive group despite a 3-9 record.

Marshall has been the perfect teammate this year; positive, supportive and always saying the right thing. However, in a way, that means his comments carry less weight than they would from anyone else. While Marshall hasn't been the only one to say anything supportive, he's the main guy the media goes to for a quote and because he has consistently "toed the company line" all season such quotes become easy to tune out.
It's interesting to contrast the situation with that of Rex Ryan in Buffalo this time last year where Ryan was being criticized directly by some of his players and yet managed to bounce back from that this year. However, while it's nice that Bowles has some support from his players, many of these players could be on their way out after the season, perhaps including Marshall himself.
