YEAH GOODSON AND STEWART AND ALL OF THE RBS ARE SO MUCH BETTER THAN FORTE. AGAIN YOU ARE RETARDS
Forte is good but he's really a push between either Stew or D-Wil alone, but together and with Goodson/Sutton the group of them just make our backfield better than yours. The reality is that you need more than one quality back in this league or you'll wear the treads off of your star runner far too quickly.
Forte plays in an offense geared around a running back catching the ball out of the backfield. John Fox's chosen OCs have never exactly been famous for that. Despite this, Stew is averaging only .2 yards less per reception than Forte, and D-Will is just under a yard less. Of course, if you look at their rushing statistics they blow the living poo out of Forte's on a per carry basis while splitting carries with each other and Goodson/Sutton, but again, totally different offenses.
Ultimately all three of those players are absolutely amazing backs, but the depth of the Panthers is what puts them ahead of the Bears when it comes to the RB position.
edit: for that matter we have the best RB corps in the NFL... there are better single backs but nobody has the depth we do imo.
