There were a few shining spots, most notably Matt Forte. Yet even there, some teeth-gnashing is involved.
And...he wasn't selected to the Pro Bowl...!!!
I understand that the Bears as a team stank. But that's all the more reason to be impressed by Forte's achievements. And there were other running backs who had good years. Though not all those selected appear to have. And again -- he set the record for most catches ever by a running back in NFL history and was just the second player ever in the league's history to have 100 catches and 1,000 yards.
And he wasn't picked for the Pro Bowl???
And it's not like Matt Forte is an unknown entity, who slipped through the cracks of voters unnoticed. He's been voted onto the Pro Bowl twice before, including last year.
What more did voters want of him, especially on a terrible team -- to sell food concessions in the stands during the game, too?!
