If there are no decent recievers that means the defense is going to key on Forte, and having a terrible offensive line doesn't exactly help you get 1,000 yds rushing. In fact, the fact that he got 5 yds per carry with that horrific passing attack is pretty impressive, imo.
that o-line is built for running the ball not passing, so to say forte averaged 5 yds/carry doesn't equal much. the bears kept trying to pass enough which also helped forte and the running game.
