The Chicago Bears’ three headed monster: Alshon Jeffrey, Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte.
Those three names terrify opposing defenses, and, quite frankly, I get it. In a year in which the Bears have had a change at quarterback again, with a defense that can’t hold a division three running back in check, these three have shined above all others in terms of stats and playmaking ability.
All three players have already eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark; Forte in rushing, and Jeffrey and Marshall in receiving. Let’s put this in perspective: before 2012, when Marshall had his breakout season with the Bears (118 receptions, 1,508 receiving yards), Chicago hadn’t seen a wide receiver go over the 1,000 yard mark since 2001.
The Bears now have three games left in the 2013 season, and two receivers have managed to make it over the 1,000 yard mark. Both Jeffrey and Marshall are on pace for 100 receptions each in 2013. The production from these two has already surpassed anything the Bears have seen at the wide receiver position.
The pair needs just a combined 65 yards to surpass the franchises single season receiving record for a duo, a record they’re on track to obliterate by likely 500 yards or so.
