In recent years the Chicago Bears have had lackluster play at the wide receiver position. The Roy Williams experiment didn't exactly pan out, and he was released a year later.
What about Sam Hurd?
Let's just say he was trying to be a little too much like Tony Montana, and turned out to be a nightmare for Chicago.
In all, the receiving corps were very unimpressive and the player that led the team in receptions didn't play wide out, and that would be star RB Matt Forte.
Devin Hester, although he is one of the more exciting players in the NFL, simply is not cut out for WR. He hauled in just 369 yards and one TD.
I love Hester...as a punt/kick returner. For the Bears offense to be at maximum potential, they need to have a top-three receivers of Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Earl Bennett.
Here are five reasons why Jeffery must start in 2012.
