Default Alshon looking good for upcoming camp

The meat of the story..

Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery was limited by knee and thumb injuries in his rookie season, but he has already done enough this offseason to impress his position coach.

Chicago receivers coach Mike Groh told the Chicago Tribune that Jeffery, who played in 10 games with six starts and caught 24 passes for 367 yards and three touchdowns last season, has stood out for him during offseason work.

Ill say this about Alshon: Hes really invested, Groh said. I have seen improvement in the very short time I have been able to work with him. He certainly has tremendous potential.

Dang do I miss Alshon Jeffery. I love our receivers but I feel like we lack that big play, throw it to me anytime and I'll go up and get it, stud. Like, he just dominated DB's and single handedly kept us in a lot of games during his career. Like his game against Kentucky his freshmen year, or his game against Auburn his sophomore year, or the Alabama game, or the Tennessee game etc. etc.

Sigh...I would kill for another Alshon Jeffery. To bad they don't grow on trees.

Still can't believe the 49ers passed on him at the end of the 1st round to draft some guy from Illinois. Could have had Alshon and Marcus on the same team. And Culliver too.

I wouldn't say once in a generation. WR talent is there. I would definitely say talent like his you don't see often. Once in a generation type player that I would put in that category is only 1 and he plays defense. Not trying to bash you though, def agree he is pretty much one of the best WRs ive seen play here. There will be another talent soon, seems to happen every year or so. There was Williamson, then Rice, and then Jeffrey. Roland will shine next

Say anything about him being fat?

Bet he winds up thicker than 216 before he's done.

Dude is money in the bank.....that man was born to catch footballs. We still miss you Alshon...

Let's just hope this coach decides to get the ball to Jeffery instead of throwing it to Marshall on every single down. Marshall is good, but I saw so many plays last season where Jeffery was wide open and the ball was thrown to Marshall.

That's not on the Coach.
That's on Jay Cutler.
99.9% of the time he's looking at Marshall. Kind of similar to the way Stafford is with Megatron.

Marshall is also a cry baby and taints Cutler's reads. Very confident Alshon will step up. Get em!

A lot of that has to do with Cutler & Marshall going back to Denver....I think it's more Cutler choosing to go to Marshall so many times than it is his coach, present or prior, telling him to throw to Marshall 15 times per game.

I am so glad I'm not the only one who noticed Cutler's love affair with Marshall. That was down right annoying. Alshon could have been the 2012 version of BM if BM would have been able to stay at Miami.

It was pretty obvious that Cutler favored BM by a lot. I saw a few times where he had double coverage and Cutler still threw his way. Don't tell me Alshon is never open, or that he can't out muscle/jump someone for the ball.

As a Gamecock and 49'er fan, I'm still sick about that!...IF AJ Jenkins makes the team this year, he will get plenty of reps with Crabtree out for most of the year...The only explanation I ever read was that the 9'ers were looking for a speed receiver. But I definitely feel like our front office dropped the ball passing on Alshon...I hope AJ proves me wrong this year!

Sidney left after 06 (his RS Soph year) even if he stayed all 4 years (technically 5) he and Alshon wouldn't have played together.
Alshon was a Freshman in 09.

Wink Re: Alshon looking good for upcoming camp

Alshon is one of my favorite gamecocks, ever. He and Gurley made other teams look silly. He also is a very nice young man. He signed a Gatorade drink for my grandson in the grocery store in Columbia. He picked him up and played with him for about 15 minutes. He is a great guy.

I just think he meant we were "That Close." One year being the difference.
