At least in head coach Lovie Smith's eyes, the Chicago Bears possess a multitude of receivers capable of a starting role.
The upcoming 2011 season of Chicago Bears football, and also the second year of implementing Mike Martz's offensive scheme, will determine whether that statement rings hollow.
It was apparent last season that Martz plugged in receivers based on their strength distributed to the play about to take place. This should be considered a positive aspect, as this shows that Martz not only maintains an open mind but will also play to strengths instead of keeping the same men on the field for every down.
If Coach Smith was implying that the Bears' receivers have their own set of strengths to contribute, that is certainly true. Chicago's receivers definitely even each other out.
