Dear Matt ... it is because CJ Anderson has already proved he is willing to work & compete in a platoon of RBs - and doesn't expect to get the majority of the touches. He is what Fox is used to - and wants on his team.

You got your money, but your bell cow back days are over. We're all happy for both you on the Jets, AND also Fox & Bears not having to deal with the likely primadonna response about "disrespect" for you based on the # of touches you would have gotten this year and going forward.

Lagford - 17 carries
Every other RB - 1
I know it's only been one game, but this running back by committee thing...?

Jets are expected to release Matt Forte soon.

I don't want to get all sentimental and meatball-y, but he'd be a nice compliment in the passing game.

To replace Cunningham and eventually retire a Bear? Sure, why not.

I think Forte is overrated. The first guy that hits Matt Forte, tackles Matt Forte.

He was just very consistent and solid all-around. However, outside of 11 and 12. He was nothing special. He was "good" at everything.

That 2011 season before the injury though? Man, he looked damn good.

However, I said at the time. We got rid of him at the perfect point. In 2014, you saw him lose just that little bit of a step, even thought he did a great job catching the ball still. In 2015, you saw the mileage catch up with injuries. I knew he was finished, and that we did the right thing.

Those last two years, watching go down every time he got clipped on the ankles from behind. Like he had just tripped over a land-mind... Yeah, the writing was on the wall.

Yeah, I was a bit sad to see him go. But I was real glad we didn’t give him that contract. It was time.
