Since you mopes are the same sports reporters who consistently refuse to stop giving credit to Kyle Orton for special teams and defensive points scored, I wouldn't expect you to dig into a reality-based reason for Forte's explosion in the second half. Could you please validate if the Lions were in the same defensive packages that they had employed in the first half? For instance, where was the safety playing relative to the line of scrimmage vs. Orton as opposed to when Grossman entered the game? Did Rex's presence in the game mean that the Lions had to guard against the deep ball in a way they did not when Orton was in the game, and thus open more running room for Forte? An analysis on those grounds would tell us much more about how special Forte's effort was vs. merely conjecture that he "stepped up" because he recognized how "hopeless" the Bears were with Grossman under center. Stop fueling football stupidity. Among Bears fans, there's already plenty of that to go around. Do your job and educate people for once.
