Good stuff in the Sun Times:

The difference between Forte and Cedric Benson, when the former first-round draft pick was putting up pedestrian running numbers, is still immense.

Forte is playing a big role in the passing game; the New Orleans Saints' Reggie Bush is the only back with more receptions than Forte, who has 29 catches for 223 yards and two touchdowns. With Bush out at least a month after knee surgery, Forte should pass him soon.


I really like that strategy (pass to the running backs), keep it up and GO BEARS!!

I think the Bears should open more games by passing. With the good performance from KO it would help spread the secondary early. They'll realize they can't keep stacking 8 in the box (which is the reason for Forte's lack of production in the running game) and have to spread the field more to help protect from the passing attack. Then they could start handing the ball off to Forte. I think this would help a ton and do great things for Forte's confidence.
