Alshon Jeffery: Bears WR combo the NFL's 'two best receivers'
Alshon Jeffery believes the Bears have the best wide receiver combo in the NFL with he and Brandon Marshall.
The Bears flipped their identity quickly in 2013, turning into one of the league's best offenses (and one of the league's worst defenses). Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall -- a pair of rebound receivers if there ever were some -- are a big reason why.
“I’m not the type of person that brags a lot about anything, but I feel that last year, what we did, we were at the top of the list as the two best receivers,” Jeffery said. “But that was last year. This year we have to set our goal and try our best to do the same thing we did last year, if not better."
Jeffery has a compelling case: Josh McCown won an NFC Player of the Week award lobbing the ball towards he and Marshall.
That means Jay Cutler's a lucky man heading into 2014, considering his biggest problem is who gets the football thrown their way. Jeffery doesn't think it's an issue with him and Marshall (he of the newly-minted contract extension).
"We motivate each other,” Jeffery said. "We compete against each other and we've got the same goals. We both want to win the Super Bowl and we want greatness. We want to catch every ball."
