Young Guns Out to Run, Run, Run!

Both the Packers and the Bears are known for having some serious Defense - it takes a special breed of player to break though, luckily both teams have player's that fit that bill!

Bears RB, Matt Forte, is a relatively new player, being drafted by the Bears in the second round of the 2008 Draft. In his first game, he carried the ball 23 times for 123 yards, in the process setting the Bears record for most yards gained by an RB in his first game! In the same season, he went on to the first RB since 2001 to rush for over 1,000 yards in his rookie season.

Even newer to the field is Packers RB, James Starks. Starks was drafted this tear by the Packers, but has gone on to help set the tone for the Packers season, particularly their wins! Only a few weeks ago, in the Wild Card game against the Eagles, Starks set a Packers postseason record for being the first rookie to run for 100 yards. Thanks to him, the Packers beat the Eagles 21-16!

Which of these fresh running backs would you pick? Make sure to watch both of them tear down the field Sunday, Jan 23rd, at 3:00 pm Eastern on FOX!

Who's your pick - Forte or Starks
