Bears offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb believes the offense will be especially explosive in 2012-13 now that Forte is under contract, as he recently told Fred Mitchell of the Chicago Tribune:
"With (Forte) being in the backfield, and Brandon (Marshall) and (Devin) Hester being over there on the outside (as receivers), it makes our offense really explosive. That is something that (offensive coordinator) Mike Tice has really emphasized in the off-season, so it should be a great time for us."
