Don't feel bad about Forte's lack of yards.

    Strange,

    We can stop Peterson ... but keep this motherfucker in mind.

    We can? In 10 games against the Bears he has rushed for 1,085 yards in 217 attempts (5 YPR, 108.5 YPG) and scored 14 TDs.

    Unless our DL improves off of last weeks performance, he is going to have a field day

    Well, it is only about 10 less than AP got.
    Anybody can do a flip, we had a guy that can jump out of a swimming pool!

    Personally not concerned with Forte's yards this early basically due to this new OL needing to gel. As long as we continue to see Trestman mixing in pass yardage to adjust for that along the way, I think we'll be fine.

    Cutler stays consistent with spreading the ball/moving the chains with the right risk/reward throws, we'll see DCs backing off the LOS & opening things up for the run down the road.

    B/c those best years came when he was the sole O, so he should have high numbers. You would expect that his TD's AND yards would drop some w/Marshal out there. Assume on any given game day that one of them will be the primary and the other the 2ndry. Then add in Jeffery and the Bennet's? I would expect his yards to drop, but his TD's would well be the best he's ever had, and ya w/out being the sole focus of the O anymore this would be a step forward.

    The only thing we need to worry about is keeping him healthy. Except for Marshall, Forte is our best offensive weapon.

    Running backs must also block and right now the screen game has been so overused in the preseason that it does not catch anyone off guard. It will be a better tool by mid season.

    As others have pointed out, that was a good Defense we played, so I expect he will have better games.

    Just a note on the dude what did that thing:
    Nov. 25th, 2012 One reception, 1 yard.
    Dec. 9th, 2012 One reception, 13 yards.

    I know Simpson is on the rise and Percy is gone, but still Peterson will be the game plan, all day long.
