What Happened o the Bears "Elite" Offense?

This in a way served as some validation for General Manager Phil Emery's decision to bring in Marc Trestman...

WATCH: Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte Trucks Over Packers Safety Morgan Burnett

Chicago Bears running back has not been the stat monster that fantasy owners and fans have grown accustomed to over the years so far this season, but on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers that all changed.

Bears Brandon Marshall Will Play vs Packers

The Chicago Bears will have Brandon Marshall in uniform today in the Week 4 matchup with the Green Bay Packers.  Marshall has just 14 receptions on the year (4 TDs, 3 in one game), but is tied for the team lead in targets with Martellus Bennett.  Matt Forte has more receiving yards than Marshall.  The ankle is clearly nowhere near 100%, and he saw himself finish Monday Night with...

Matt Forte: Bears running game has been “frustrating”

Bears running back Matt Forte admits it’s “frustrating” that they haven’t been able to get a running game going through the first few weeks of the season. “There is a bit of a learning curve because you are so used to having Slauson and Garza in there and those five [regular starters] solidify the line … with the cohesiveness to work together,” Forte said, via the...
