Carter & Moss or Marshall & Jeffery? 


I know it is only in year 3 for our guys but can we compare these 2 pairs? I'd like to think so. They didn't win a Super Bowl but they had one of the highest scoring offense in the history of the NFL, I believe. Both Carter & Moss are or will be HOFers. Are our guys capable of this?! I'm just getting pumped for this season....!!

Re: Carter & Moss or Marshall & Jeffery? 


Marshall is heading there. He always puts up numbers, and if he never wins a championship those numbers will say a lot about his chances getting into the HOF.  He needs three or four more Marshall type years.  You can pencil in his numbers it seems, wherever he has gone he put them up.  To early for Alshon, but it looks really promising.

Carter is a HOF and I think Moss has to wait a couple of more years, but he will be a first ballot HOFer.

Carter and Moss...its not even close.  Both of those guys can be included in the conversation for top 5-10 WR's of all-time.

As of this minute it's carter and moss. I think Marshall is well on his way on and off the field to being another carter. I also beleive if Alshon continues his success, he can equal moss on the field and not be a total tool like moss is.

Carter & Moss as of now but our two guys could be on that level if they keep playing this way.

It's unfair to Moss and Carter to compare our two guys to them. No contest.

It's probably more comparable to Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt level. And Bruce and Holt were bad ass so that's a good comparison.

Marshall & Jeffery without a doubt.

Carter & Moss at this point and it's not close.  Moss is one of only two players in NFL history to have 300 catches and 40 TD's in a 3 year period (Jimmy Graham being the other).

edit: I saw CB Brandon Flowers yesterday say on ESPN that Marshall IHO is the toughest cover in the league.

Way too early to compare our guys to Carter and Moss.  

As a Bear fan for over 40 years, it's really weird to realize we've got an outstanding WR duo-best in the NFL right now.  While some of our WR tandems have been good (Gault-McKinnon,  Graham-Conway) none even come close to Jeffery-Marshall.

The receiving leaderboards are changing by the second with the explosion of the passing game in this era, but Marshall is already 41st on the career receptions list and he's younger than everybody in front of him. It's not impossible for him to end up in the top 10 by the time he's done.
