Alshon Jeffery Thinks the Chicago Bears Can Make it to the Superbowl Next Year
Despite the Chicago Bears going 3-13 this season, wide receiver Alshon Jeffery believes that the Bears can bounce back and make it all the way to the Superbowl prediction. Bold prediction or just plain crazy talk?
"I guarantee you we are going to win the Super Bowl next year," he said after the game, per Adam Hoge of WGN Radio.
There is a chance that Jeffery may not be with the Bears next season. He will be a free agent come march. Jeffery has said that his future in football remains in his agent's hands.
Jeffrey's stats were not all that impressive this season as he finished with 821 receiving yards and two touchdown catches on the season, significantly less than in 2013 (1,421 receiving yards and seven tds) and 2014 (1,421 receiving yards and seven touchdowns). His lack of production has prevented him from landing on a Superbowl caliber team. Jeffery could not play in 2015 because of injuries and was suspended four games in 2016 for violating drug policies.
After the Bears rank 19th in points allowed per game it will take a lot for them to return next season with a better record.
