In Marc Trestman’s offense, can Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte be a legitimate NFC Offensive Player of the Year candidate this season?
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler is in the final year of his contract extension with the franchise. To this point Cutler has failed to live up to the expectations heaped upon him after the trade. Cutler has been at best an average NFL quarterback who has played well at times, but who has ultimately struggled to produce against key division opponents.
