Alshon Jeffery might only have two NFL seasons under his belt, but the Bears receiver isn't lacking any confidence.

In an interview with The Sporting News last week, the 24-year-old wideout gave himself a new nickname - "The Show."

Why?

"I feel like every time I try to catch the ball and make a play, I try to put on a show, so that's what I would call myself," he told The Sporting News.

Given some of the ridiculous catches he had last year, the nickname seems to suit.

Jeffery also declared he and Brandon Marshall the best tandem of receivers in the NFL as they led the league with 189 catches, 2,716 yards and 19 TDs last year.

"I'm not the type of person that brags a lot about anything, but I feel that last year, what we did, we were at the top of the list as the two best receivers," Jeffery told TSN. "But that was last year. This year, we have to set our goal and try our best to do the same thing we did last year, if not better.

"We motivate each other. We compete agaisnt each other and we've got the same goals. We both want to win the Super Bowl and we want greatness. We want to catch every ball."
