Michael Bush is a great pick up. Forte needs to understand RB's don't get big long term contracts anymore. With performance like chris johnson and injuries like AP, RB's are a gamble that teams are no longer willing to take. Most of Forte's yards came from JC checking down to him as the 5-7 step drops, poor WR's and bad o-line only allowed for this. This is not the Martz system and the WR's have been addressed (barring any suspensions for Marshall). Screens and check down tosses will not be as plentiful. Matt needs open field to run, he's always had problems getting hand off in the back field and creating for himself. that along with the fact the Forte is coming off an injury does not bode well for his expected pay day. Him and his agent need to drop their sense of entitlement and their current situation for what it is, a good one...and they should take it.

If forte holds out, I have no problem with a bush>barber/bell rotation. barber is still on the roster and would think will be should forte hold out.....
