Chicago Bears: A Campaign For Matt Forte As NFL MVP

Yes, typically quarterbacks on winning teams with the NFL MVP award, but stop for a second and consider where the Chicago Bears would be without Matt Forte.  For the season the offense has gained a total of 3,812 yards from scrimmage with 30 total touchdowns.  That is good enough for 15th overall in the league.

NFL Notes: Bears, Lions, Packers, & Saints

Bears Michael C. Wright believes it would probably be a good idea for the Bears to lock up RB Matt Forte for the next three years or so with a new deal. Wright mentions that former backup QB Josh McCown was a “major loss for the offense” given that he was somewhat of a coach for the Bears last season. Wright doesn’t expect any changes to Bears’ coaching staff to come during...

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...

Chicago Bears: Thoughts About the Win

The Chicago Bears (4-6) were finally able to win at Soldier Field for the first time this year by defeating the Minnesota Vikings (4-6) 21-13.

The Chicago Bears are a mess right now. This team just got crushed, coming off a bye week, to the Green Bay Packers 55-14, after a 51-23 loss to the New England Patriots a week before.
