I picked up these beauties a few years ago and have been sitting on them ever since. The question is, should I hold them longer to see if he pans out, or dump them now before he stinks up the joint???

Personally I like the kid. He had a nice college career, and I think he is a great sleeper.

Both of these cards are VERY mint too!!!

If you still have them now, you should probably hold on for a few more weeks.

The Bears schedule isnt that bad over the next month (Atl, Min, BYE, Det), so he could put up some good numbers and heat them up a little more.

But then the schedule starts gettting a little tougher and the weather will get a little worse for the passing game in Chicago and his stats should cool off.

I have to say, Im still not sold on him (its not like I am sold on Grossman either.. lol), but he has done better then I expected so far this season. Still think he lacks the arm strength to be a threat in the long passing game, but with teams putting 8 and 9 in the box to try to stop Forte, he doesnt have to go too deep to throw a completion that could go for a lot of yards (like Olsens 52 yarder last week wink.gif )
