Is The Bears Passing Game As Bad As People Think?

The Bears aren't so bad off with the wide receiver core we have.

There is so much potential with this group and they're so young. Think about what could happen in years to come.

No doubt it would be great to have a superstar wide out, but now it's getting to the point I haven't heard anyone talk about Olsen or Clark. They are two outstanding tight ends that get the job done.

There are teams in the past that have done well with mediocre wide receivers because they had great tight ends and nice running game. That's what the Bears have.

Last year's stats for our tight ends were:

Olsen:

rec:54  yards:574  avg:10.6 tds:5

Clark:

rec:41  yards:367  avg:9.0  tds:1

That's almost a combined total of 1,000 yards receiving between the two. Imagine what the two can do with Jay Cutler.

  

So for all the Bears' fans panicking about the wide receiving core: Don't worry. They will do good, the tight ends will do great and the Bears will once again be the NFC North champions.
