It’s nice to see a couple of Bears get recognition for their outstanding seasons. Marshall set Chicago Bears single season receiving records while leading the Bears offensively while Tillman had his best season as a Chicago Bear, forcing 10 fumbles and returning his three interceptions for touchdowns.
It’s hard to argue any other selections for the Bears. There are some fantastic players on his list. It’s a shame for Devin Hester to be off the list. He used to be head and shoulders above all other returners, but he’s faded into obscurity and might not even return to the Bears next season.
