Did you really just say that arian foster can't change a game? the guy has been one of the most productive backs in most categories the past few years, and matt forte accounted for more the 50% of his teams offense when healthy. That's pretty game changing for me.


Productive back =\= game changer.

A game changer is someone who can turn the tide of a game on one play, usually with a big play, ala Chris Johnson, Jamall Charles, Darren Sproles, etc....

Obviously, Foster and Forte are good and have an impact on the game, but their impacts on games are usually gradual.

they aren't game changers in the respect that a guy like Adrian Peterson or Calvin Johnson are game changers. Don't have to be a game changer to be very productive.

I think this is an overreaction.

The team needs a good draft next year and a few good signings in free agency and they should be back in the playoffs or knocking on the door.

Watch the Bears vs Redskins game and then try to tell me that Matt Forte doesn't change games...

He had 3 rushing TDs. One was a 50 yd TD. Hes also a great receiver out of the backfield

Fair enough, clear differing of opinions of a term that is wide ranging.
