Do you remember a few years ago when the Bears were trying to convince you that Roy Williams and Devin Hester were legitimate #1 wide receivers and thinking to yourself  ”It’ll be a cold day in hell before this Bears offense ever looks like a real NFL offense?”   Monday night may have been that night, as the temperatures in Chicago plummeted to the single digits with wind chills dipping below zero.  With a 45 point explosion in brutal conditions, the Chicago Bears moved into second in the NFL in scoring offense, behind only Peyton Manning’s Denver Broncos.

Early in the first quarter, they achieved a milestone as rare as an attractive woman in Green Bay – three 1000 yard performers on offense in the same season.  Last week, second year wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was the first to break through.  On Monday, Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte both joined him in that milestone.  The only time the Bears achieved this before was in 1995 when Jeff Graham, Curtis Conway and Rashaan Salaam did it.

 

Would you have thought this was ever possible with the Bears’ top quarterback Jay Cutler missing five and a half of the first thirteen games, with backup Josh McCown executing Marc Trestman’s offense to perfection.   Regardless of who ends up under center next season, the Bears have a legit offense.  Let’s take a look at each of their “Big Three.”
