In analyzing the Chicago Bears and Chicago Cubs, it is clear something strange is going on. My conclusion is that Chicago is currently Bizarro Chicago. Let me break it down for you.
Bizarro Cedric Benson is Matt Forte. Last season, Cedric Benson STUNK. In fact, his entire time in Chicago was horrible. After being drafted No. 4 overall in the NFL draft, Benson sat out for 36 days of camp. To sum up Benson’s playing, the world “bust” comes to mind.
Benson has had so many DUI’s (both on land and water) that he now must drive a Blo and Go. He must breath into his car to prove his isn’t’ drunk before the car will start.
On the other hand, Matt Forte had an outstanding NFL debut for the Bears. He rushed 23 times for 123 yards and 1 TD. Forte is smart enough to keep his name out of the police blotter, and is generally liked in the locker room. Forte has been a great change of pace for the Bears backfield.
