I realize that but that was his first fumble all season and looking at his stats with the Raiders, he only had 3 fumbles in 4 years there. I just felt that it was a little premature. His history doesn't say that it's a problem. I'd take my chances on his past stats over Forte getting nothing in his runs.
But back to your team, I'm happy to see that Manning has found a home. He was a solid player on the Bears. He just wanted more than they wanted to pay him. I wish him and your team all the best.
