Forte is having a record season, but the Bears aren't going to invest while his stock is so high.
With each passing week Matt Forte earns more respect from me on the field and less respect off it.
The disgruntled Bears running back is on pace to break team records and could finish with more yards from scrimmage in a single season than anyone in league history with a little more good fortune. Barring an unforeseen setback, he’s headed for his first career Pro Bowl appearance at season’s end, and few players in the league mean more to his team’s offense than Forte does to the Bears.
But Forte is getting a little too chatty in the media regarding his contract dispute with the organization and it’s ruining the feel-good vibe he created by showing up to training camp on time and participating in preseason games after floating the idea he might skip them.
In the Sun-Times on Wednesday, Forte was interviewed by Sean Jensen and did not have nice things to say about Bears management.
