Question Bears coach Marc Trestman about how Matt Forte can improve during training camp and he practically does a Kennedy impression.
Ask not what Matt Forte can do for the Bears. Ask what the Bears can do to help their Pro Bowl running back top the best season of his career.
‘‘We continue to ask ourselves, ‘How can we help him?’ ’’ Trestman said this week at Olivet Nazarene University. ‘‘ ‘How can we find plays that we can allow him to use his talents?’ We’re working in that direction.’’
Forte had his best fantasy season under new coach Marc Trestman, who utilized Forte heavily as a receiver — he caught a career high 74 passes — while also feeding his star back the ball in the running game (289 carries, the second highest total of his career). Expect more of the same in 2014.
