Although it might seem a little out of the of ordinary, these days all of the attention for the Chicago Bears is focused on the offensive side of the ball rather than the defense. Now that’s not to say the Bears’ defense isn’t good, but as we witnessed in 2013, the offense is the top dog in the Windy City.
That also begs the question: Just how much better can this unit get?
Well running back Matt Forte seems to believe that they can get as better as they because, in his mind, the possibilities are limitless.
“If we keep working hard we’re going to take this offense, hopefully, to the top of the league,” Forte said, per the Chicago Tribune. “There’s no ceiling. There’s no limit that you can put on it.”
When Marc Trestman was hired as the team’s new head coach prior to last season, some thought there would be an offensive resurgence, but not many expected the variety of ways that he could figure out for this team to beat a defense, but with a versatile back like Forte at his disposal, that task was made a lot easier.
Then when you add in wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall, and of course the newly-contracted Jay Cutler, Forte’s statement is true.
