Matt Forte pumped out 80 yards off 16 carries Sunday, but the Chicago Bears running back was more concerned about the touches he didn't receive in the team's 41-21 win over the Indianapolis Colts.


This is why we signed Michael Bush, Matt...

But we passed the ball too much and needed WAY more Forte IMO, he had two great runs and could have had more against a defense minus its best player, especially when its a pass rusher...
He won't be "unhappy" in December after he has been hit a couple of hundred FEWER times because Bush is here. If they can limit his carries to 20 a game he might earn all of his contract and everyone will be happy.

Now he should be able to pound the Pack that much better.

Brandon Marshall absolutely is killing it on Sports Sunday. He's doing a great job of explaining plays so even non-football people can understand it.
That was a very good show. Marshall seems like a really nice guy.

The game against the Pack is the one where we can rush him more. We didn't really care if Luck was on the field or not. With him on the field good things could happen for us and did. With Rodgers on the field more than likely Bad things would happen so keep him off by running Forte and Bush at them.

The Bears believe the injury that knocked Matt Forte out of Thursday's game is a high-ankle sprain.

This comes as no surprise to anyone who saw the replay of Forte twisting the ankle under Charles Woodson's knee. It's horrendous news for Forte's fantasy value, as he was playing at perhaps the highest level of his career. High-ankle sprains typically keep a skill-position player sidelined four weeks, limiting the ability to make cuts at peak form even longer. It's quite possible Forte may not recapture his pre-injury explosiveness the rest of the season. A must-own in all formats, Michael Bush will take over as a three-down back in the meantime.


This is not good if it's confirmed.

If McMahon was known as "Punky QB", I think Cutler should get a nickname....





Droopy QB

I have a terrible feeling Shea>Chandler Jones is going to haunt us for a long long time... He's bullying AZ's Oline, I'd have to use 2 hands to count how many times he's been in the backfield making plays... and its the 2nd quarter. He looks GOOD.

Thats not my point... I think Chandler Jones will be the best Defensive player out of this draft class. As I'm typing this he just forced another fumble. The guy is gunna be absolutely elite. Shea will be solid IMO, nothing more.

It’s like every other draft pick…fit is everything…in Belichick’s multiple front D Jones will play a lot of 2 gap D…something that with his length and bulk he is perfect for…he will also get the benefit of LBs blitzing more to give him support against his match up…he will get to stand up as the elephant end…here he would be asked to beat his man one on one on 90% of the plays and maybe Emery didn’t feel he had the speed off the edge for that…I would have probably picked Jones but only because he was a readymade every down end…McClellin still isn’t close to his ceiling and might not get there this season…but in the long run I reckon he will be better than just solid.

Get back to us in three years on Jones/McClellin. They've played two NFL games so far.

Yeah there’s no doubt in my mind if he can add more strength and he continues to work on his counter move he could be very good…if a guy like Jason Babin can become a sack artist I don’t see a reason McClellin can’t…the other thing I’ve found impressive about McClellin so far is his instincts.

Via Zaidman...

37 years ago today, Walter Payton made his NFL debut in #Bears 35-7 loss to Colts. He was held to no yards rushing on eight carries.


Who knew what was to come after that performance lol...still the greatest RB of all time even after all these years.
