Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte caught his 102nd pass in 2014, passing former NFL FB Larry Centers for the most receptions in a season by a running back.
Huddle Up: One shining light in what ended up being a lost season for the Bears. We'll see how the versatile Forte adapts to potentially a new quarterback--and maybe even a new coach and new offense--in 2015.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte tied a career-low with five carries in the team's Week 13 loss to the Detroit Lions, and he said the team can't afford to repeat the strategy going forward. 'It's of the utmost importance, especially if we're playing outside, with the weather and stuff,' Forte said. 'You can't just sit back there and throw 50 passes a game and expect to win.'
Huddle Up: The Bears' upcoming schedule should rectify the situation with the Bears facing the less-than-stout defenses of the Cowboys and Saints the next two weeks.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte carried 23 times for a season-high 122 yards and no touchdowns in the Week 4 game against the Green Bay, and he added 49 yards on five receptions. Forte went over 10,000 career total yards from scrimmage in the loss.
Huddle Up: It was a fantasy-friendly matchup for Forte and he delivered, though the Bears failed to show up in other areas of the lopsided loss to Green Bay. No worries about Forte going forward, in case his first three games had you poised over the panic button.

Chicago Bears RB Matt Forte said he believes the team could have the top offense in the NFL this upcoming season. 'If we keep working hard we're going to take this offense, hopefully, to the top of the league,' Forte said. 'There's no ceiling. There's no limit that you can put on it.'
Huddle Up: Forte isn't exactly out on a limb as the Bears finished second in the league in scoring (445 points) and eighth in total yards (6,109) last season, and that was with Jay Cutler missing almost a third (5 starts) of the season.
