In case you haven't taken a look at the Bears roster recently, it is poor and doesn't say winner. The wide receivers they have (Earl Bennett, Devin Aromashodu, John Broussard, Randy Burgess, Rashied Davis, Devin Hester, Juaquin Iglesias, Derek Kinder, Johnny Knox, Eric Peterman, and Brandon Rideau) have a combined five touchdowns between all of them. Not the answer if I'm Jerry Angelo. Disgusting. If you want to see the stats, click the link. http://www.nfl.com/players/search?category=team&playerType=current&filter=0810
There were the tight ends who caught a lot of passes during the 2008-2009 football season. The three tight ends (Olsen, Clark, and Gaines) caught a combined seven touchdowns. The receiving core of the Chicago Bears is terrible to say the least.
The answer to these glaring problems is Brandon Marshall. Yes, Jay Cutler is a Pro Bowl quarterback and can probably make Davis and Hester better, but they need a star receiver, badly.
Last year, Marshall caught six touchdown passes for 1,265 yards, which is nothing even close to what the Bears had.
The Bears, in past years, have been so close to being good. They have the running game in place with Matt Forte. Now all that is needed is a good receiving game. And Jerry Angelo, Brandon Marshall is your guy to fill that void.
