    Brandon Marshall currently has 786 yards and is projected to finish with 1,397 yards
    Alshon Jeffery currently has 735 yards and is projected to finish with 1,306 yards.

    That would be a total of 2,703 yards, and would be the most of any receiver tandem in Bears history (Jeff Graham and Curtis Conway with 2,338 yards in 1995).

    Goes to show you how pathetic our WR crew has been in franchise history if this pair could beat the other pair in only nine games.

    Edit.... They have not beaten it yet... but are projected to.

    This offense has weapons now that are so powerful, that even a guy like McCown looks solid. And I'm not just talking about our 2 WR's.

    I don't put that out there as a slam on Josh McCown, but only to highlight the fact that the weapons are at such a high level now that they're going to make about any QB with a pulse look good. All a QB needs to do in this offense is protect the football. Don't give the ball to the other team. If you do that, you're going to be looking solid at QB.

    I think this O is solid. However, imo it still needs another TE and a very fast slot WR.

    I think it really needs 2 more years in the same system with the same QB and same WRs. Then the sucker will be really humming!! And yeah SFB, the other TE and a speed WR would just make it even deadlier.

    THIS. We run a LOT of 2 TE sets, and as much as I've been a fan of the Bears using a 6th lineman to block, having another TE that can mix up the calling in those sets will take this offense further than it is currently able to.

    Seeing that M. Wilson is also dressing on gamedays, and even getting the occasional touch, I would say the FO is high on his potential. If he could step in as our starting slot WR next season, we will be really solid. Add a solid field-stretching TE, and this O looks like nothing we've ever had here. Now to overhaul the D!!

    There is something good that comes from saying in a system. I'm a hunny bun fan that wants everything immediately. But constant change (like the parade of offensive coordinators and schemes under Lovie Smith) is not good at all. I realize there will always be SOME change each year with personnel. But it sure helps to limit the change. Get good coaches and players in place, and then get the best of those resources over a span of years. It results in sustained success. That is what I want to see in Chicago. Sustained success, where even in a bad year, the team is still pretty darned good, and in the good years we're playing for a Lombardi - and winning.

    I loved watching those guys play.

    Speaking of changing? What's with Kromer? Doesn't he have a clue how to properly guru the OL? He hasn't made a single change on the OL this season and it's halfway over. I mean not a single one. Tice would have had Long in and out of Center a couple of times by now. And Webb would have stayed at his old LT spot. He has the perfect measurables. I mean, how can we operate like this?

    The shocking thing is that we don't even have a "Webb Nation" now. How scary is that? Kromer is nuts, thinking all you need for an OL are guys who can, you know, block people. Sad.

    If we can work out a PLAN to trade off our current OFFENSIVE LINE to other teams and get draft picks to draft DEFENSE ,

    then we are set !

    BWAH -HA -HA -HA-HA-HA !!!! Under Angelo/Lovie this would seem like a normal idea.

    We could draft ... seven safetys ... that are special teams guys.

    Apparently Kromer hasn't gotten the memo that it's all about gellin'. That's what Angelo was harping about last year. Kromer needs to get with the program!
