    He needs 66 rushing yards to pass Neal Anderson for second all time in Bears history rushing.

    He needs 130 all purpose yards to pass Neal Anderson for second place on the all time list for all purpose yards.

    ur right, hes def. in the mix... just to add, i believe payton would be a better qb than, for instance vick, if he wanted to be, of course rb position would suffer a bit...

    Walter, Gale, Forte, Neal.

    That's still a pretty special class to be in. But I'm not sure that Forte is really as far behind Gale as many want to believe. They are really kind of similar, outside of one AMAZING rookie year where Gale had 20 TD's, he never really got over 10. Forte never had that one big season,but he's actually produced pretty similar in the 7-10 range
    Gale was good for 1200-1600 yards before his inj, Forte is far more consistant in the 1400-1700 range, but that is w/2 extra games to play.
    Unlike Payton who was sick in his touches every year Forte is playing more years and has more touches then Gale does.

    I'd say that when it's all said and done with(if Forte finishes his career healthy in Chicago) people will look at Forte as the clear 2nd best in Bears history. He is this era's Curtis Martin. You don't ever think of Martin as one of the elite special players, but he was pretty damn special. *670 used that comparisson, not mine, but I think it's a good one when you look at Martins stats)
