Episode 32: Week 14 Preview vs. Redskins — That Was Fun While It Lasted

Listen on iTunes or stream here:

The loss to the 49ers was as disappointing as the Thanksgiving win over the Packers was exciting, and it all but eliminate any chance the Bears had of making the playoffs.

Amid the Bears’ poor play — two missed FGs by Robbie Gould the most obvious — Jeremy Langford and Ka’Deem Carey continue to impress at running back, and we discuss their futures, as well as the futures of Matt Forte and Martellus Bennett, who was placed on injured reserve this week.

Also discussed:

  • The defensive breakdown on Blaine Gabbert‘s long TD run
  • Pernell McPhee‘s absence on defense
  • The play of Kyle Fuller and rookie Adrian Amos
  • Another 1,000-yard season for Brandon Marshall
  • Having Eddie Royal and Kevin White back in the fold (The Chicago Tribune is now reporting White will not return this season.)
  • What needs to happen for the Bears to make the playoffs

We also talk about this week’s game against the Redskins. Here’s to hoping DeSean Jackson runs backwards against the Bears, too.

Alshon Jeffery Brandon Marshall

Alshon Jeffery had 89 receptions for 1421 yards and 7 touchdowns. He also rushed for another 105 yards.

Brandon Marshall had 100 receptions for 1295 and 12 touchdowns.

2013, was the 4th year that Brandon Marshall has had 100+ receptions with Jay Cutler as his quarterback.

Cutler threw 8 touchdowns to Brandon Marshall, while Josh McCown threw 4 touchdowns to Marshall.

Cutler only threw 3 touchdowns to Jeffery, compared to the 4 touchdowns from McCown.

So who will have the better fantasy football season? It’s close, but the edge this year goes to Brandon Marshall.
