eat as a rusher, receiver, returner and passer.
Yes, passer. Cohen, who is 5-foot-6, became the shortest NFL player to throw a touchdown last Sunday since Wee Willie Smith in 1934. Miller was the recipient of that 21-yard score, giving him a team-high two TD catches among his 18 overall receptions for the season.
“I don’t even know if (Cohen) could see me because I couldn’t see him,” Miller said with a laugh. “That lollipopped in the back of the end zone where nobody else would get it. Perfect throw.
“When you get him on the football field, he’s electric. He really can do anything with the ball.”

And of course, there’s the impact Trubisky is making. Although the Bears are limited in the passing game because of his inexperience, Trubisky’s mobility, arm strength and accuracy helps make amends. They also serve as a reminder of why Chicago moved up to make Trubisky the No. 2-overall selection in this year’s draft despite having only one season as a college starter at North Carolina.
“He can beat you with his arm and his legs,” Miller said. “He’s made a number of plays for us to extend plays. Nothing has been too big for him. He’s only going to get better in time as well.”
The same goes for Aaron Rodgers physically as his recovery process begins from Thursday’s surgical procedure. With no guarantees “A-Rod” returns this season, Chicago has a better chance of ending a playoff drought that dates to the 2010 campaign.
“You never want to see anybody go down, but especially a guy like Aaron Rodgers,” Miller said. “He’s good for the game. I enjoy watching him play football just because he’s that great at it.
“But as far as our division and where we’re at, it’s up for grabs. We haven’t started the way we want but we still have opportunities to move forward, stack some wins and get this thing going in our direction.”
A direction that might finally be heading up with arguably the NFL’s best player going down.
