I stand corrected. Thanks for the clarification!
why don't we add that Forte is bad since getting his contract? Clearly not a Top10 RB like we knew he was
well if the OC/OL are to blame for cutlers problems, why doesn't forte get that also? But I don't think anyone has said Forte's been great, actually there has been a lot of critism about how he's played this year via radio/news. And recently on this site people have discussed his issues.
Yet somehow Cutler is absolved....and how is it that Forte is supposed to run well when NO ONE on D is scared of the passing game, even w/Cutler/Marshal. Bears are still facing 8 men in the box more often then not. Teams are still shadowing Forte, even while bracketting Marshal.
But both are due their fair share of criticism.
Benj, I really do think that Forte is hurt, it's not the getting taken down easier, it's just a slower in general move set he has; he never had great break away speed, but he just feels slower in how he moves.
Not an excuse, but I do hope next offseason he/Bush get fully healed and w/a new HC/OC are put in better positions to do what they do best along w/Cutler and Marshal.
