In fact, Forte, as tremendous a player as he is in the open field -- he was the 2011 league leader in yards from scrimmage when he hurt his knee the first week of December -- has never been a particularly strong option near the goal line, thus the Bush signing makes sense. This doesn't lessen Forte's value. If anything, it could be a positive, as someone with a 30-pound advantage can handle the high-leverage and potentially more injurious touches. We want Forte healthy.
