Matt Forte: Bears coaches told us we played ‘worst half’

For the first thirty minutes, you wondered if the Bears even got off the bus. During Sunday’s home matchup against the rudderless Buccaneers, Chicago went into halftime with a 10-0 deficit and having been severely outgained in total yards, 211-68.

Is Matt Forte of the Chicago Bears the best running back in the NFL?

You can tell me the NFL is a passing league until you’re blue in the face, and maybe you’d be right, but the great teams all know how to run the ball as well. Each week it seems every sports site on the net publishes its own quarterback power rankings but very few do it with running backs. Why no love for the rush? It’s time to change all of that. Here’s my running back power...
