Jets Planning On Giving New RB Forte Lots of Rest During the Season

The New York Post reports that the Jets plan to give veteran running back Matt Forte “plenty of rest” throughout the 2016 season. All signs point to the Jets using a “time-share system” at running back with Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson expected to see plenty of touches. Obviously the 30-year-old Forte is considered the […]

Chicago Bears Training Camp Preview: Who will start at Running Back?

Even though Matt Forte missed three games last year for the Chicago Bears, he still played in 55% of the team’s offensive snaps. In 2014 he was in on 92% and in 2013 he played in 88%. Forte had 120 starts in his eight years in Chicago, so it will be odd seeing him in the green and white of the New York Jets. Taking Forte’s place in Chicago is the ‘running back by committee’ that head coach John Fox has used in his previous stops. He’ll use one, two or perhaps even three different backs this season. The starter may not be as important as the finisher, and those two roles may be...

Matt Forte opens up about Brandon Marshall, Jay Cutler

Since Matt Forte left the Bears in free agency to join the New York Jets, not much has been heard from him. This should hardly come as a surprise to Bears fans because throughout his career Forte has been a quiet guy, often staying out of the limelight and just going about his business. Even when speaking with the media or doing fan meet and greets, he came across as soft-spoken. Part of that keeping his head down and showing up on Sundays is what endeared him to many Bears fans. He was always productive, known as a good teammate and rarely showing up in bad headlines. Now that he’s in...

How Much of an Impact Will Matt Forte's Receiving Skills Have for the Jets?

Since the Jets signed Matt Forte, I have thought the move was as much about adding a number three option to the passing game as it was about adding a number one back. The proof might be in the production of the man the Jets re-signed as the number two back behind Forte, Bilal Powell. Over a six game stretch near the end of the season, Powell came to life as a receiving option out of the backfield. He averaged over 5 catches and just shy of 50 yards per game. The Jets won five of the six games. Then Powell suffered an injury and missed the finale against Buffalo, a rough defeat. They could...
