Bears sign 2nd Round Draft pick RB Matt Forte

Well, it looks like we are finally starting to concentrate on our sad offense. This guy did pretty in high school and college, although he did have a knee injury during college and missed a year. He was hyped to be in the running for the Heisman in 2007, but it did not happen (alot of competition there!) Here are some awards he received:

Conference USA All-Freshman (2004)
2x All-Conference USA (2005, 2007)
Third-team AP All-American (2007)
Doak Walker Award semifinalist (2007)
Maxwell Award semifinalist (2007)
Senior Bowl MVP (2008)

I believe this is a step in the right direction for us! So welcome to Matt Forte! Make us believers.
