    All right guys, we got a taste of what the offense is gonna look like last night, so, who's gonna be more productive?

    (Going by 3rd downs and touchdowns)

    I'm splitting my vote. TDs got to Bush but 1st downs receptions goes to Alshon by the length of a football. :p

    Alshon will be on the field more as a starter, even if not the #1, that will give him hands down the advantage. Bush will get plenty of carrires, but unless Forte goes down for any leangth of time Alshon should just get more oppertunities.

    Yes, lets compare a running back and a WR as to who will be more productive. This is why fantasy players nab all of the WRs first.

    Henry ,
    Its too early to tell. One thing is for sure ... its good to have them both on the same team.
    Ford impressed the shit out of me at RB.
    It looks like that was the Alshon Jeffery we drafted.

    Jeffery is going to have a big year. He is much better running his routes this year, and is very good in and out of his breaks. He was open constantly last night, and I think it's going to be that way a lot, as teams are going to double Brandon most of the time. I could see AJ having 70/1050 and 8 TDs. I think he really comes into his own this year.

    Any league I play in has always been a RB friendly league. I'm saying the Bears are gonna rely on the running game a lot more, AND Jay's gonna be spreading the ball around.

    LOL, not gonna happen Henry. All you've done is put up a poll. You haven't taken a position yourself so that leaves the rest of us betting against ourselves. Those aren't the kind of odds I'd take a bet on.

    I believe that he has made his position known in other threads. I think he is taking the Michael Bush

    Also, this is a "bet" thread. I don't think I could've made it anymore obvious, unless I went up to each person directly, and told them it's a "bet" thread.

    He has also voted in the poll. He is the only one who picked Bush thus far

    Yeah, whatever the consensus for those picking Jeffrey is, I'll sport it for a month. Just as long as it doesn't violate the TOS.

    OK, understood but I still can't play because I'm splitting my choices. Bush will have more TDs and Jeffery will have more 3rd down grabs.

    I voted based on the poll text, before I read the first post. AJ will be more productive. Yards-wise. MB will have more TDs.

    If anyone can find the number of first downs for each player, awesome, but I can't find them anywhere(I think Jeffery has 3-4, Bush 1-2). Right now they are tied 0-0 on TD's.
