It looks like Bears running back, Matt Forte, is unhappy with the way the Bears are handling the rushing game in Chicago. With the emergence of Louisville Alum, Michael Bush, when Chicago got towards the goal line during their game against the Colts this Sunday, Bush got the carries. Bush got 12 carries for 42 yards and 2 touchdowns on Sunday. While Forte got 16 carries for 80 yards and 1 touchdown.
Forte was a holdout for a lot of the offseason and demanded more money because he is now considered one of the elite running backs in the league. He seems to be a bit selfish when it comes to the team aspect of the game though. He was unpleased at the way him and Michael Bush’s running situation is handled. Even though the Bears beat the Colts by twenty points and Bush was very efficient with the task that offensive coordinator, Mike Tice, gave him.
“It’s been happening my whole career here, so I don’t know,” Forte told the Chicago Times, with a bit of disappointment “That’s (coordinator Mike Tice’s) call.”
Bush has definitely shown flashes of being a potent back in the NFL. His size and how hard he runs bodes well for him in the NFL. He showed his potential in Oakland last year when Darren McFadden went down with injury and played like a very solid back.
In other Louisville NFL news, David Akers tied the NFL record for longest field goal with a 63-yard field goal against the Green Bay Packers. Also Harry Douglas had 3 catches for 32 yards for the Atlanta Falcons, Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs
