Default Poor Alshon

I kinda feel bad for the guy. He's a great player, there is no doubt about that. However, he plays on a team that runs a good bit and when they do throw their OL sucks and can't protect. The times the ball does come out, Cutler only looks for Brandon Marshall. He throws into double coverage all the time trying to get Marshall the ball. How is Alshon hardly getting a look?

Cutler has the tools, just lacks a brain.

Im disappointed too. Hope Alshon keeps his head up and continues to learn ever day and give it 110%. If cutler cant see his value, someone will. Hang in there Alshon !

I noticed that last night. There was a guy behind Marshall and a guy in front of Marshall, Cutler threw it there anyway and they picked him off. Terrible play

Maybe the Bears will get a QB who is worth a damn to spread the ball around.

I read their new coach is pass happy and should help spread the ball round with the uptick in offensive tempo, look out for poor Alshon he'll get his chance.

Default Re: Poor Alshon

Towards the end of last season, Cutler was looking for Alshon a lot more, and he made some great catches. What really stinks is that he missed so many games last year due to injury. If he'd stayed healthy, he and Cutler would've probably got in a pretty good groove.

I think once the real season starts, he'll get his catches...but yeah, the o-line has to protect Cutler better.

Clicked on this thread expected to see Alshon pumping gas........into his BMW or something. Hey, Lane might even catch a glimpse of Alshon while he's visiting his daddy's work.

Default Re: Poor Alshon

We all know Cutler's love affair with Marshall. After watching them last season, what do you expect? We all know how good he is, but until either Cutler or Marshall get traded, Alshon will always be an after thought when it comes to getting the ball. Hell Marshall could trip and fall down and if Cutler has time, he'll wait for him to get up, brush himself off, wash his hands and then try to throw it to him.

Alshon is fine. He had a pretty good season last year considering he missed time due to his broken hand. He was never going to be a primary receiver for an NFL team.

Default Re: Poor Alshon

Yeah, Alshon is not in the best situation for him. He has a QB that has a powerful and accurate arm, but is very poor in just about all other areas of quarterbacking. Cutler locks on to his primary receiver and stares him down. He panics when the first man is not open, he doesn't see field very well. He doesn't throw his receivers open. He throws a very flat ball, and Alshon likes that over the shoulder catch he has worked so hard on. He is not very mobile and his wind up takes a long time. And on top of it their pass protection is bad. Cutler is really only comfortable throwing to Marshall. Alshon needs to try to pick Marshall's brain to find out why Cutler likes throwing to him so much and emulate it.

That is not what the majority of the NFL scouts have said about him. Never going to be a primary receiver? How the heck do you know?

It would be a lot of fun to watch Alshon if he had a QB that could and was willing to get him the ball. He could end up having a career like Keyshawn Johnson, and that is not too shabby.

I don't see Alshon whining about not getting the ball thrown to him like Keyshawn was apt to do though.

That is exactly what I was thinking while watching the game last night... Garcia was the same way with Alshon that Cutler is to Marshall, if he doesn't see Marshall he tends to panic!!!
