If there was one positive takeaway from the Bears' loss to the Saints on Sunday afternoon it's the emergence of Alshon Jeffery.
Jeffery finished the game with 10 receptions for 218 yards and a touchdown. He broke the Bears' previous all-time mark of 214 yards set by Harlon Hill in 1954 and became only the third player in franchise history with 200 receiving yards in a single contest.
In two straight games Jay Cutler has targeted Jeffery more than any other receiver on the Bears and for good reason; he's producing more than anybody in the group. Jeffery accounted for the Bears' five longest plays against the Saints. He had receptions of 58 42 31 25 and 21 yards. Its the kind of production the Bears need from the second-year receiver if they want to take the next step towards the postseason in 2013.
It's also the kind of production the front office expected when they traded up to select Jeffery in the 2012 NFL Draft.
