Chicago Bears seek to Prove their Quality in the NFL Playoffs

Chicago Bears Odds and Free PicksEarl Bennett is upset by the criticism and the recipients of the Chicago Bears as well.

They are tired of hearing that Chicago lacks a receptor to which to send balls. All they know is that the Bears are back in the playoffs for the first time in four years and will host Seattle on Sunday in a match in the Divisional Playoffs.

And believe they had anything to do with it.

"We are always upset by the criticism," Bennett said. "Last year we were upset and this year too. We hear the same thing over and over again: the Chicago Bears have no receivers, no receivers. We all feel that everyone in this room is a number one and we just have to go out ( the field) and show everyone they are wrong. "

Well, here's your chance.

If the Bears decide to try to hire a high-level receiver is a topic for the offseason. At least, the group now have contributed this season, helping Chicago to move directly to the second round of the playoffs.

The team's top three receivers have combined for 137 completions and 1,996 yards with 12 touchdowns, and although the Bears seem to have given up the idea that Devin Hester is the largest recipient, is back with his record-setting performance returns.

That is a huge development. His contributions to the offensive -40 catches, 475 yards, four touchdowns, are a kind of bonus, with the Bears rely on Bennett and Johnny Knox.

Knox emerged as the primary deep ball threat with 51 catches for 960 yards, including 17 for 20 yards or more.

"It just is becoming a more complete receiver," said quarterback Jay Cutler. "As it is one of those men with whom one can count. If only it is covering another player, he (Knox) is going to win ... He has done that all year when he turns to him is in place correct. "

The same applies to Bennett, especially on third down.

Receptionists (46) and yards (561) are less than last season when he caught 54 passes for 717 yards, but has positioned itself as the best choice of equipment when you need to keep moving forward. Had 11 receptions on third down in the last nine regular season games, all for first downs.

"I just try to be available to make things easier for quarterback, just finding the right places and holes," said Bennett, who remained on the bench in the final regular season game in Green Bay with an injured ankle. "(Offensive coordinator Mike) Martz has done a good job with the game plan, organizing people, putting us in position to succeed."
