After 4 weeks, or 1/4 of the season, I thought I would revisit the Bears #1 receiver debate. I argued that Devin Hester should/could be considered a #1 receiver. The proxy that everyone held was Brandon Marshall - Cutler's #1 receiver in Denver.
Here are Marshall's numbers through 4 games:
Hester's numbers through 4 games (including not playing the 2nd half this Sunday):
I would say those numbers are pretty darn close - and factor in that Hester didn't play in the 2nd half of the game yesterday - I would argue those numbers could have been dead even. I am really starting to further believe that a "#1 receiver" is over-rated and the QB makes the receiver. To further prove that point take a look at Johnny Knox - a rookie receiver for the Bears taken in the 5th round. 14 receptions, 190 yards, 2 Touchdowns.
Granted - it's only 4 games.
Here's hoping that tonight's game lives up to the hype- as a Bears fan, I'm hoping for a tie....I think that would be flipping funny as hell. In my opinion the Packers Defense will have to step up huge to win this game.
NFL Commercials that piss me off:
If I have to see AJ Hawk's hair flopping around like he's running on the scene of Baywatch in that NFL Play 60 commercial tonight - I may throw up all over myself.
I am soooo sick of the stupid Dennis Leary Ford commercials and the Howie Long Chevy commericials - Detroit - it's time for a new ad campaign - Fox it's time to stop running the same 3 commercials over and over and over again.
