Unproven backups competing behind Forte

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. -- Churning up a toboggan hill as part of his offseason conditioning program in a suburban Chicago park, Matt Forte apparently stopped long enough only to urge on and, yes, ride his workout partner. "He killed me," said Michael Ford, one of several Bears running backs vying for the No. 2 spot behind Forte this training camp. "His work ethic is amazing and the things he does in the offseason to get himself ready are brutal. ... But the tradition set before him and with him, we have to hold to the same standards.

Bears committed to a Forte-first approach

BOURBONNAIS — Question Bears coach Marc Trestman about how Matt Forte can improve during training camp and he practically does a Kennedy impression. Ask not what Matt Forte can do for the Bears. Ask what the Bears can do to help their Pro Bowl running back top the best season of his career. ‘‘We continue to ask ourselves, ‘How can we help him?’ ’’ Trestman said this week at Olivet Nazarene University. ‘‘ ‘How can we find plays that we can...

Matt Forte is one of the best all around backs in the NFL

Chicago Bears do-it-all tailback Matt Forte has been to two Pro Bowls, he's been top 10 yards in from scrimmage on four separate occasions, top three in touches three different years and in 2013 he set career highs across the board. Do you consider him one of the best backs in the NFL? Matt Forte's not a big bruiser, he's not a shifty scat back and he's not a speed demon. What he is is a very good football player that is in a perfect system for him right now. He had a down year in the pass blocking department, but that hasn't been a problem throughout his career. I expect him to bounce...

The 10 Most Important Bears of 2014 - #7 Matt Forte

For the 6th straight year, I'm bringing you whom I believe will be the ten most important Chicago Bears for the upcoming season. Finding his way back onto my list after not making it in 2013 is running back Matt Forte. Last season wasn't the first time Matt Forte was in a West Coast Offense. His first two years in the league were spent in Ron Turner's version and he put up some very solid numbers. I expected him to thrive in 2013 under Marc Trestman and he did just that, delivering career highs across the board. I knew Trestman would bring out the best in Forte, I just didn't expect him to...
