Matt Forte is coming off a huge rookie year for Chicago with 1238 rushing yards yards, 8 rushing touchdowns, 63 receptions, 477 receiving yards, and 4 receiving touchdowns.
As long as he doesn’t suffer the sophomore slump, he is only going to become and even bigger weapon especially in the passing game with Cutler under center.
Speaking of Cutler, Chicago ’s passing game is going to flourish with Cutler leading the team. Cutler is going to want to prove that he can flourish with a new team.
I think he is going to improve from his last season with Denver where he had 4,526 passing yards and 25 touchdowns. I expect Hester and Olsen to become even bigger targets with Cutler at quarterback, and this team is going to score a lot of points.
The defense is still a top-10 unit, and I think they have the best chances of winning the NFC North.
