KC Joyner sees bright things ahead for the Bears

SHARE KC Joyner sees bright things ahead for the Bears

BOURBONNAIS, Ill.–For all the readers who believe KC Joyner has nothing but gloom and doom predicted for the Bears this season, he’s got a new post for you to digest.

Writing for the Fifth Down Blog at the New York Times, Joyner expands on what he’s said in the past, that running back Matt Forte is the next Brian Westbrook. As we pointed out here before, Joyner’s analysis shows that Roberto Garza was one of the more effective run-blocking guards in the league last season and Josh Beekman wasn’t too far off.

Joyner also projects a big season for Greg Olsen and says that the matchups this season will be favorable for him.

He likes the addition of defensive line coach Rod Marinelli, just like just about everyone else who follows the game.
