Matt Forte had his best season as a pro last year in the first installment of Marc Trestman’s offense. His rushing (1,339) and receiving (594) yards were the highest of his career, as were his rushing touchdowns (9) and receptions (74).
Forte doesn’t see any reason why he — and the Bears offense — can’t get better in Year 2 under Trestman.
“We had to figure out what we were gonna be good at,” Forte said. “If you can play with confidence, you don’t have to think about it. We kinda had a little thinking that would hold us back a little bit. You had to think about formation, think about the play and learn the offense and stuff. We’re a little bit ahead of the game right now at that point.”
The Bears finished 8th in yards per game and 2nd in points per game last year and have room for growth as the offense returns continuity this season.
