Forte, Olsen to Start Saturday Night

| August 20th, 2009

Steve Rosenbloom wants to see the first team offense play tomorrow night and he’s right.

I can’t believe the Bears are cocky enough to think Cutler and the
offensive line don’t need several quarters worth of snaps in anger with
Forte in the backfield, Olsen in the pattern and whatever detritus the
Bears have at wideout trying to fake like they’re capable.

It doesn’t just magically happen. You can’t just put all these guys
together and expect them to be good without seeing them do it under
duress. I have it on good authority the Packers aren’t going to play
two-hand-touch-below-the-waist in the fourth quarter the night of Sept.

Well according to Jeff Dickerson at ESPN Chicago, the Bears are set to suit up Greg Olsen and Matt Forte Saturday night against the New York Giants.  This means that we’ll all get a look – for at least a series or two – at the eleven men slated to start against the Packers on the 13th.
