|Following their win over the Chargers, the Bears take a seat in the examination room.|
While Cutler is away, it's natural to assume the Bears will shift their offense even further toward tailback Matt Forte. But as ESPN Stats & Information points out, Forte is already one of the busiest (and most productive) players in the NFL. Even with Cutler in the lineup, Forte has accounted for 41.8 percent of the Bears' offense. The Jacksonville Jaguars' Maurice Jones-Drew (43.3 percent) is the only player who has accounted for more. Increasing Forte's role sounds good in theory, but putting it into practice might be more difficult than it sounds. If we thought of the idea, don't you think opposing defenses would realize it as well and adjust accordingly?
