Alshon Jeffery has company


Another edition of mailbag this week. We are inching closer to the start of training camp and folks are starting to believe the Bears can win this division but they will have some competition.

Is this the year the Bears finally knock off the Packers in the NFC North?- Julie in Logan Square

The Bears certainly have the talent on both sides of the ball to do so. The biggest questions will come with health and being able to win within their own division. If they can do that then they will get the job done.

Is Alshon Jeffery the best young player in the NFC North?- Mike in Wrigleyville

I would say he is but Corderalle Patterson from the Vikings is very close. Patterson has the ability to take it to the house at any point and provides an extra element in the return game. Look for him to have a big year this season.

Who’s one surprise name to watch in camp?- Tommy in Lincoln Village

I like what undrafted rookie running back Senorise Perry can do. He is a hard runner who can catch the football and provides some help on special teams coverage. I can see him impressing the coaching staff in preseason games and really push for that final running back spot. He can beat out guys like Michael Ford and Jordan Lynch.

    Corderalle Patterson with 45 catches under 460 yards verses a number 2 receiver with 89 catches for over 1400 yards with a lifetime yards per catch of 15.0 yards. If taking it to the house written comment means yards after the catch then you lose in every way trying to compare these two receivers. Twice the receptions and three times the yardage AS A NUMBER 2 RECEIVER.

      And Jeffery had 24 for 367 in his rookie season so I see your point but don’t think it’s valid.
