What’s Our Forte???

I got through the first three keys before I realized I was spending way too much time worrying about the Vikings’ anemic offense and not looking at the Bears offense.  Last week Reggie Bush torched the Vikings defense for nearly 200 yards from scrimmage.  Meanwhile, Forte had a so-so start in Week 1.  Coach Trestman wants to get Forte going and as a Fantasy owner of #22, I couldn’t agree more.

Keep it Clean

It was amazing to watch Jay Cutler standing tall in the pocket and deliver the football.  He ended the day with a relatively clean jersey, as the offensive line did not allow a sack.  Cutler almost had a clean stat sheet, but for a tough interception as he was hit and couldn’t follow through on his throw.

For the Bears to beat the Vikings, they don’t need to do anything too flashy on offense.  Keep it simple, keep Cutler clean and not make any big mistakes and they should be on top when the clock hits zeros.
