    Alshon is going to be gooood. He's going to get his TD's it's just such a long line of talent in front of him. Poor Bush he is the odd man out in this line and he's a legit talent just sucks when you're on team that has boat load prime targets. Sounds just like our typical Bears offenses we all remember around here.....ummm :rolleyes:..he just came to the Bears to late he should have been here 5 years ago he would have been our top player and scorer for us.

    If they are happy w/Ford, I'm stunned, or would be stunned, if they haven't tried to get NY or Indy to bite on Bush for an exorbanate amount in return. Or it could be that Bush is hurt again, remember he was hurt last year but played. He might be hurt again but this HC isn't going to play that game.

    I think Alshon has this one hands down,
    Jeffery 30 rush yards 53 rec yards
    Bush 15 rush yards.

    Jeffery has 2x's the rush ards and more then 6x's the total yards. Said it after pre season, go w/the guy starting.

    Not going off of yards here. 3rd down conversions and touchdowns.

    All right. Gonna do the math here:

    Michael Bush 1 3rd down conversion for a first. Zero touchdowns
    Alshon Jeffery zero 3rd down conversions for a first. Zero touchdowns.

    Looks like someone is ahead.....

    3rd down and td's are not production for #2 WR, although it might for the 2nd RB.

    That was the agreed upon bet. Look at the OP, and ask a mod, it has not been edited in any way. We even had a thread before this to agree upon what the terms would be.

    I didn't say it was edited nor was claiming foul play, it wasn't the point, you say who will be more productive, and then try and limit what production is to favor one. #2 WR's job is not soley 3rd down conversion, it's yards and rec's and by association moving the chains on all down's not just 3rd, while Bush's primary job is 3rd and short and goal line.

    Either way I didn't actually vote, and I'll stick w/my Alshon over Bush(Alshon should have more TD's then bush's combined 3rd and td...unless Forte is hurt),

    No, it was to try and make a comparison between the two. I didn't even come up with the actual idea on how to compare the two, Soul did. And you can just admit that you didn't read it, or have a short memory, because you DID vote.

    I'm new to this party. Define "production" Yards gained? TD's? Jeffrey will have more yards, and might even have more TDs if they are going to leave Bush on the bench with the ball on the 1-yd.line,as happened yesterday. That play call and endzone INT was the dumbest play of the year so far.

    Very possible short memory....and there's the problem, it was a Soul idea.

    I'd play Ford ahead of Bush except for when you just need 1 yard for TD or first down.
