Forte Steals The Show As Bears Win In London
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

It was the Matt Forte show in London Sunday evening (London time), as he steamrolled over the Tampa Bay Bucs for 145 yards. He also chipped in 38 receiving yards, as he continues to lead the NFL in total yards from scrimmage with 1089. He also scored the Bears first touchdown on a beautiful 32 yard run that showed him zig zag across the field, deftly avoiding Tampa tacklers. "He's the best player in the NFL right now", Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher said. "You look at everything he's done this year, and it's amazing."

Jay Cutler was adequate on the day, throwing for 226 yards and 1 touchdown. That TD happened to go to Roy Williams, who has been struggling to date. He had 3 other catches for a total of 59 yards. Hester and Knox both had a few catches each, but there wasn't many passes to be thrown when Forte was running wild. The Bears ran the ball 32 times, with Forte toting it 25 of those times. It was a dominating offensive effort from the beginning.

Things didn't go so well for the Bucs on the other hand. Malcolm Glazer's "other" team had trouble from the start as they lost their starting running back Earnest Graham early with an ankle injury. After only two carries and one reception, he missed the rest of the game. Freeman probably had it the worst, as he was intercepted four times on the day. Tampa looked out of it for most of the game before they rallied to make it close at the end.

The story of the day, and so far of the young season, is Matt Forte. Since 2004, he is the fastest player to go over 1000 yards in the first seven games of the season, and he has 1084. Early on it was thought that he would be mainly used in the passing game, as the offensive line was in a shambles, but Forte has been equally as impressive on the ground racking up 672 yards, only forty behind leader Adrian Peterson.

Forte is in the final year of his rookie contract and is getting paid $600,000 this season. Compare that to Chris Johnson who just renegotiated his deal, and pocketed $30M in guarantees. Forte has no such guarantees, and because of that and the great success in his early career, he asked for an extension. He was told that he is under contract, and should play out his contract. That is leaving several players on the Bears wondering about how they are being treated by the ownership group led by general manager Jerry Angelo. Either way it turns out, Matt Forte is getting more and more expensive each game he plays.
