Bears | Marshall Faulk defends Mike Martz

Hall of Fame RB Marshall Faulk defended former St. Louis Rams head coach and former Chicago Bears offensive coordinator Mike Martz, saying his former coach was forced to work with "lesser talent" during his two-year run with the Bears. "Listen man, I'm going to say this and whoever plays for the Bears, if they want to have a conversation with me, so be it: Martz was working with lesser talent than he was accustomed to working with," Faulk said Tuesday, Jan. 31. "If they keep providing you lesser talent, you have to leave. I mean, other than RB Matt Forte, there wasn't anybody who would scare a defense. When you go and get WR Roy Williams and he becomes your No. 1 wide receiver, that's an issue. I'm defending Mike because I can only imagine how hard it was to game plan (with that roster)."
