Is there room for improvement for the second highest scoring offense in the NFL?

According to Bears running back Matt Forte, there certainly is.

"We weren't the best in the red zone," Forte said. "I know we can be better in that area. We can be better at short yardage and goal-line situations and also on third downs. We made it an emphasis after the bye week last year to improve on third downs."

The veteran running back has seen with his own eyes how the new look Bears defense is coming along. Though Forte knows games aren't won on paper, he's been impressed with how that unit is coming along in preparation for the 2014 season.

"Just by being out there and going against them this whole training camp, our defense is definitely talented," Forte said. "We've made some plays here and there as well, but I think our team as a whole is really talented. We have a chance to be really good this year."
