SI.com: NFL (22.03.2012 11:13)
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (AP) -- The Chicago Bears have agreed to a four-year contract with running back Michael Bush.

 
It looks like the Bears are saying, unless our game of tag has Matt on the grid, "That's not our Forte."

Bears ready to give up on Hester as every-down receiver
NFL.com (30.04.2012 10:27)
Mike Tice had the "Randy Ratio" when he was in Minnesota. Now he will have the "Devin Package" in Chicago. The Bears are creating a set of plays for Devin Hester to run on offense.

Holy offseason double-talk regarding what Hester's role on offense will be.  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Chicago Bears 'explosive' offense to feature WR Devin Hester
NFL.com (12.05.2012 13:39)
The Chicago Bears want to be explosive, and with a trio of talented receivers -- Brandon Marshall, Devin Hester and rookie Alshon Jeffery -- they are poised to do just that.

Probably relegated to fantasy irrelevance in any event, WR Knox could very well miss the 2012 season... according to "The REAL Feed":
 
Bears' Knox (back) may miss entire '12 season
ESPN: NFL (23.05.2012 15:16)
Johnny Knox could not rule out the possibility of being forced to miss a large portion -- if not the entire 2012 season -- as he continues to rehab daily at the team's practice facility.

Not that I think Forte has not done a fantastic job for the Bears and earned a big payday, but, as fantasy footballers, we have to be putting 2 and 2 together here...  The following two pieces, like them or lump them, paint a picture, only an FF geek and fool would ignore...  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Bears coaches surprised by Michael Bush's versatility
NFL.com (26.05.2012 15:55)
While the Bears and Matt Forte seem to be at a standstill, running back Michael Bush is impressing his new Chicago coaches with his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.

 
Bears reportedly concerned with Forte's durability
NFL.com (26.05.2012 19:09)
As Chicago RB Matt Forte remains looking for a long-term deal, a report surfaced that Chicago is hesitant to pull the trigger on a new contract over concern's about potential chronic problems in Forte's knees.

This new report notwithstanding, until there is a "tangible" change to the situation, my take remains as I stated it in my previous post right above.  Indeed, this is starting to get ugly. Currently atop "The REAL Feed":
 
Matt Forte responds to report about knee concerns
NFL.com (26.05.2012 23:18)
It didn't take long for Matt Forte to react to reports that the Bears' concerns about his knees. Forte posted a video of himself running up hill carrying 100 pounds on a sled to demonstrate their strength.

Running back Bell back running... in ChiTown.  Notable if Forte is out for an extended period (he is already likely to be out for a month plus) and, even more so, if Bush does not seize the opportunity.  From "The REAL Feed":
 

Kahlil Bell tweets he's back with Chicago Bears

NFL.com (15.09.2012 15:15)
The Chicago Bears are left with Michael Bush at running back after Matt Forte went down with a high ankle sprain. But maybe not for long, Kahlil Bell, who the Bears recently released, says he's back.

Worth noting this surgery situation about a big-time playmaker!?!?  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Brandon Marshall's health a concern for Chicago Bears?
NFL.com (08.07.2013 14:46)
There is no such thing as "minor" hip surgery, so we'll be keeping a close eye on Chicago Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Should Bears fans worry about seeing an offense without Marshall in 2013?
