Matt Forte and the Realities of the Deadly Game

Matt Forte and the Realities of the Deadly Game
I’m not sure it has hit Matt Forte…yet. Down the road, while being carted off the Soldier Field turf (or any other field, for that matter), he might realize how different business is in the National Football League compared to years ago.
