Chicago Bears running back Matt Forte is confused about why he was replaced by Michael Bush towards the end of multiple scoring drives during Sunday’s win over the Colts.
“It’s been happening my whole career here, so I don’t know,’’ Forte said, per the Chicago Sun-Times. “That’s the coordinator’s call.’’
Forte understands that Bush is just as versatile out of the back field as he is.
“Mike can do it all, as well,’’ Forte said. “He can catch the ball on third downs, so there are no limitations when I come out of the game. It’s not like if I come out on third down, he can’t do the same thing.’’
Forte has a point about not finishing drives. He’s one of the NFL’s best all around backs, he deserves to at least finish a drive if he’s not too winded.

The Chicago Bears Quarterback Jay Cutler had a pretty gosh darn good opening day. Cutler threw for 333 yards completing 21 of 35 of his passes had 2 touchdowns and only threw 1 interception. The Bears looked good as they beat the Indianapolis Colts by 20 points 41-21 today. The Chicago defense helped take care of Andrew Luck intercepting him three times in his NFL regular season...

Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler finally has legitimate weapons at wide receiver, and the Bears are using a brand new offense, which could give them the advantage over Green Bay on the short week.
Former Chicago Bears LB Rosevelt Colvin provided his unique perspective when he joined the guys from “Bears Claws”. Colvin posted back-to-back double digit sack totals after being drafted in the fourth round out of Purdue in the 1999 draft. He spent four years in Chicago before moving onto the New England Patriots. In five seasons with the Patriots, Colvin played in, [...]

The Chicago Bears passed their season-opening "exam" with flying colors on Sunday over the Indianapolis Colts. Playing against a team with just two wins from the season before may not be the greatest measuring stick for any team. Add to the mix, the Colts were starting a rookie quarterback with a first-year coach and anything but an impressive win would have been considered...

Jat Cutler added fuel to the fire for Thursday Nights rivalry game against the Packers
If you asked me how well Jay Cutler would do against the Green Bay Packers secondary on Thursday, I would have told you anything less than a 400 yard 3 TD performance would be a disappointment. Now I’m not so sure after Cutlers’ comments to CSNChicago this morning.
Being interviewed by CSNChicago...

Despite matching their regular-season loss total from all of last year with a home defeat in Week 1, the Green Bay Packers aren't about to panic.
They'd be significantly more worried if the Chicago Bears come into Lambeau Field and make them 0-2.
The Bears have a prime opportunity to make an early statement in the NFC North on Thursday night when they try to end a four...
