It wouldn't surprise me. I know McCarthy has raved about Forte and I'm sure Matt would like to you know....win.

Lacy was better than Forte last year. Now Lacy stinks? I feel that GB's O-Line is not doing the job either run blocking or pass blocking. Look at the last 3 weeks to see. Rodgers is getting blown up man.

Doubt it, but it would certainly be a nice fit. Forte is a good receiving back. However, it is very rare that they spend in FA, let alone on a RB on the wrong side of 30. If the price is right, I could see them going for a nice 2-year deal, but really nothing more than that. Some team out there will offer him more years @ a higher AAV

Eddie Lacy is and has always been below average. What could be easier thatn being the running back for Aaron Rodgers. The media just loves to buy into the flailing dreads. He is fat and getting fatter and will be no more than a back up at best in a few years. Where is PackersFan now to tell everyone who much better he is than Forte.

Just like they did Peppers. But then again, who knows if Forte would sign?

I'd rather for his sake and potential pairing with system sake see him join the Saints... though if the Packers want to give him some gigantic contract, that sounds good.

I don't think Forte would excel in GB unless they change the O for him.

Yeah thats exactly the reason why Starks has had better numbers because the OL isn't run blocking.

I could see Forte in NE. He'd be perfect for what they like to do. Versatile guy who can line up in the backfield or in the slot.

It would be nice to see him get a ring.

I can respect a player going somewhere they think the can win, but I personally dont give a fuck if a bear gets a ring unless its in a bears uniform.

sure as hell dont want to see them get one in a fucking packers uniform.

I don't think that team is built to pay a RB top money. IMO if Lacey isn't the guy they will draft someone earlier and go RBBC.
