    What is truly amazing to me is that even with two 1000+ yard receivers Forte had a better year than when he was nearly 100% of the entire offense.

    It just shows how good and balanced the offense can be.

    Valid point, MD the passing game was far more prevelent and yet Forte's touches really didn't diminish as much as I thought they would, just goes to show how much more the O was on the field compared to previous years. I had expected that Forte's touches would drop, but his overall production would stay similar to what it had been; instead his touches stayed similar and he flourished while everything around him also improved dramitically.

    Very interesting he gives kudos to many, but the kudos to offensive line in 2nd season is absent Jordan Mills. He names Bushrod, Slauson and Long, no mention of Mills or a OC. Just found this interesting, are we potentially looking for a ROT, if somebody were to fall????

    or is the RoT already on the team(Long)? Mills might be a great swing/backup T even if he's not starting material. That OR considering he's a 5th round rookie, maybe he just needs another season or 2 before he really steps up.
