    Matt Forte Retires

    First 4 years:
    Brown - 54 GP, 27 GS, 261 catches (63.3%) for 3,561 yds (8.6 AVG), 15 TD
    Landry - 64 GP, 57 GS, 400 catches (70.2%) for 4,038 yds (10.1 AVG), 22 TD

    Huh. Wonder why Landry is getting paid so much...

    "Hater" is a term used by weak minded people in the face of legitimate criticism.

    Far better player than he ever got credit for because he never played for a good team

    As a Vikings fan, got to watch him torment my team over the years. Like SiteWolf stated, he was never fully appreciated for how great he was as an all-purpose RB. By all accounts, he's also a great person off the field and very easy to root for unless he was playing against my squad. Enjoy retirement, Matt!!!

    Bears fans certainly appreciated him. He was our safety valve. My only issue I ever had with him was short yardage runs and pushing the pile. But he was our best homegrown (so Thomas Jones doesn't count) all-purpose back since Payton. His debut was an absolute thrill to watch and he improved every year which is the most you can ask of a player.

    And he's a total class act. His letter moved me.

    The Bears went to the NFC Championship game in 2010, define "good team"

    Probably top 5 all times for Bears running backs.
    He's behind Payton and Sayers, you can argue beyond that.
