The Chicago Bears offence has been built around one specific trademark: Size. Derek Stepan Jersey . Last year, the "Monsters of the Midway;" Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery and Martellus Bennett, combined to haul in 254 passes from quarterbacks Jay Cutler and Josh McCown. The Bears wide receiver core features Marshall, 6-5, and Jeffrey, 6-3, along with Super Bowl XLIII MVP Santonio Holmes. At tight end, Bennett measures as the tallest of the pass-catchers at six-foot-six. Cutler, entering his second year in head coach Marc Trestmans system, is grateful to have the added benefit of receivers who can dwarf defensive backs. "It makes it easy," Cutler told the teams website in training camp. "You kind of just hang balls up there for those guys and they make the play. They all do a really good job of finding the ball in the air and knowing when the back-shoulder [throw] is coming. Weve just got to keep everyone healthy." In 2013, Marshall, Jeffrey and Bennett were all able to stay healthy and play in all 16 of teams regular season games. Cutler, however, was not. The 31-year-old missed five games with an ankle injury, causing a minor quarterback controversy between himself and McCown. However, Trestman made it clear that, when healthy, Cutler was the starter and McCown signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the offseason. Now, facing little competition from backups Jimmy Clausen and David Fales, Cutler is free to think solely on Trestmans offence and improving on last years 8-8 record. After signing Holmes during training camp, the Bears added a new element to their offence; a prototypical slot receiver. Holmes was signed after projected No. 3 receiver Marquess Wilson fractured his collarbone during a practice session. At 6-4, 184 pounds, Wilson fit the Bears mold at receiver, but not the typical look of a slot receiver. Holmes, five-foot-11, caught 23 passes for 456 yards in 11 games last season with the New York Jets in 2013 and could eclipse those numbers with the Bears as defences key in on Marshall and Jeffery
