Is Chicago Bears tight end Martellus Bennett the best in the NFL?

Most sportswriters would tell you that Jimmy Graham of the New Orleans Saints is the best tight end playing in the NFL today. I am not one of them. Don’t get me wrong, Graham is a fine tight end but I consider him to be a wide receiver in all but name only.

Chicago Bears need wide receivers to right the ship on offense

The Chicago Bears offense also hasn’t met expectations and a big part of the reason is a lack of production from the wide receiver position. It isn’t really their fault.

Until they can get past the Packers, the Chicago Bears are going nowhere

Now, they’re searching for answers after the Green Bay Packers came into Soldier Field and smashed them 38-17.

Time For Chicago Bears To Move Lamarr Houston Inside
