The Bears' ground game, which was expected to be more potent this year with a 1-2 punch of Matt Forté and offseason acquisition Chester Taylor, has lagged behind the passing attack thus far, but Taylor told PFW he's confident that he and Forté will be finding more holes soon. "I believe teams are going to start playing our pass more than our run," Taylor said. "We're hoping for that. Then we can start opening up the running game. When you start having six (defenders) in the box, you don't have a choice but to run." Team observers are skeptical about the offensive line's ability to give the backs much room and some have questioned whether offensive coordinator Mike Martz emphasizes the run enough. Chicago is gaining just 72 rushing yards per game, which is the fourth lowest total in the league. The Bears will take yards however they can, but establishing more of a balance on offense has to be a priority.
