Alshon Jeffery’s Big Day Shows the Chicago Bears Are Up To Something
Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett said it best when he compared Marc Trestman to fictional character Willy Wonka.
Now, the Bears’ head coach doesn’t specialize in chocolate factories, but he does have a very high football acumen. With that being said, the folks in Chicago have grown frustrated with Trestman as the Bears have looked less-than stellar in consecutive weeks and now sit at 3-2.
Offense is Trestman’s forte, yet the Brandon Marshall fans of the world will tell you that the passing attack the Bears have featured in 2013 is very different from their approach last year. Marshall was the main go-to wide receiver in the Bears’ offense, but No. 15 has slowly been weeded out by Jay Cutler, who only threw Marshall’s way a mere five times in Chicago’s loss to the New Orleans Saints.
On the other hand, second-year wide receiver Alshon Jeffery had a career day on Sunday as his record-breaking afternoon featured 218 receiving yards and a touchdown. Perhaps Trestman wanted to get Jeffery more involved so that the Bears can have a legitimate weapon across Marshall, who has carried the load for the Bears since coming to Chicago in 2012.
Stay tuned to see if Jeffery’s enormous afternoon sparks trouble in the Windy City or if Trestman’s new offense means that we can expect No. 17 to keep on producing at such an insane clip.
