Marshall hasn't been the only Bears receiver to make an impact on this team, as his presence has helped the rest of a Bears' receiving corps that in the last two years prior to the Marshall trade has been best described as uneven.
Devin Hester has been the perfect example of this.
While the Bears have attempted to get him going on offense to be able to include his speed and playmaking abilities, at times it has fallen flat. But this season while garnering less attention from corners, Hester has been able to perform much better in the Bears offense.
He only has 10 receptions for 152 yards and one touchdown, but also has gotten targeted more by Cutler and is beating cornerbacks with regularity.
Bears tight end Kellen Davis has also produced for Chicago when called upon, bringing in nine receptions for 132 yards and a touchdown. The tight end isn't used as much in Chicago as it is elsewhere, but when called upon, Davis has produced well.
It's interesting to note that we haven't truly seen the Bears receivers healthy at the same time, yet the passing game has still done well. Alshon Jeffery missed Chicago's Monday night game with a fractured hand and will likely miss three or four more games this season. However, in his first five games, Jeffery has 14 catches for 184 yards and two touchdowns.
Earl Bennett has only played in three games this season and has nine catches for 109 yards. As he gets healthier and works his way into the offense, Bennett will become an even bigger weapon for the Bears.
Once we do get to see this Bears offense in synch, Chicago won't just be a defensive juggernaut. This team can put points on the board on offense too, making their defense that much stronger and more effective.
