The first honorable mention for the Milk Carton is Earl Bennett. Bennett is usually an extremely reliable receiver, but that 4th down drop was costly. He catches almost everything thrown his way, but he just could not secure one pass late in the fourth. I am sure that if he would have caught the ball, he would have come very close to making the score 23-17. Bennett is worth a mention, but he usually doesn’t make mistakes like that and I’m not worried about him.
I decided to put Brandon Marshall on the cover because I expect more out of him. I know Alshon Jeffery was having a career day, but Brandon Marshall was absent for a lot of the game. Being double covered surely had a negative impact, but I would have liked to see the Bears try something to get him the ball.
The guy has proven that he is an extreme deep threat and a monster when he has the ball. He didn’t play a completely awful game, but a great number 1 receiver like Marshall should always be getting open. With Marshall, the offense should never look stale.
