    Only way I can find to try and look for 3rd down's(I'm assuming you mean conversions) is on espn splits:
    3rd and 3-7 to go 2 3919.5 39

    So what I can gather is Jeffery has 1 3rd down conversion and 2 TD's

    3rd and 1-2 3 1 .3 1
    3rd and 3-7 2 3 1.5 3
    He might have 2 3rd down conversions(cannot tell b/c he got 1 yard on a 1 or 2 and got 3 yards on 3-7 yards. and he has 1 td.

    I didn't include the failed attempts, only potential conversions. If we were going on 1st downs, Bush would be in real trouble b/c Jeffery has 17

    I also found 1st down % on pro football reference:



    The only reason I added this is b/c getting a hard number on 3rd down conversions on the year is going to be next to impossible b/c no one I can find has a # that says x firsts on 3rd downs.

    With his big game against Saints yesterday, jeffrey now has more yards than Marshall. We have legit double-threat at WR.

    That is the thing. We have Marshall. We have Jeffrey. We have Forte. We have Bush. We have Martellus Bennett. It's not like we are a one trick pony. We have some very good offensive threats. It does not seem like they are being used in unison. Is it the game plan? Is it Cutler? Is it both? We also have the issue about how we start vs. how we finish. Is that because of the game plan? (no adjustments until too late) or is that just the team needing to get in the game. I tend to go with the first rather than the last. I can't believe a bunch of veterans are just now understanding that they can't wait until the end of the game to play hard.

    The run blocking looks pretty iffy on a lot of plays. The run blocking, at this point, doesn't look any better than last year. The pass blocking looks pretty solid, and should get better and better over time. I'm worried about the run blocking though. It's butt-ugly on too may key plays.

    The Saints were smart. They dared the Bears to beat them without B.Marsh. They just took him out of the game. We responded with Alshon having a great game. What killed us were those key passes dropped by Earl Bennett. The last one really hurt.

    Yes, the Bennett drop, and don't forget the boneheaded Briggs offsides. That really set me on fire. No way they were going for it and he knew better.
