The Chicago Bears passing offense has been better than it has been the last decade.
This team has been looking for a number one wide receiver for a very long time after Marty Booker was traded to the Miami Dolphins in 2004.
It’s sorta of funny knowing that Chicago traded their number one receiver to Miami then years later end up trading for a number one wide receiver.
Everything’s connected ladies and gentlemen.
Anyways, last season Marshall was the first Chicago Bear to break 1,000 receiving yards since Booker.
Marshall is coming off a 1,500 yard receiving season in his first year as a Bear. This year he has 78 receptions for 990 yards and nine touchdowns. The 11 he scored last season were a career high.
Alshon Jeffery is entering his second year in the league and already has over 1,000 yards receiving. He set a franchise on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings for the most receiving yards in a single game.
McCown connected with Jeffery for 249 receiving yards and two big touchdowns. It’s his second 200 yard game and fifth game where he’s had over 100 yards receiving. He has a total of 1,109 yards and five touchdowns.
Both receivers have some time to pad their stats as Chicago has four games remaining on the schedule. They go up against one of the worst defenses in the league in the Dallas Cowboys.
Monday’s battle will definitely be a shoot out.
