All-Time Bears Running Backs-- Part 1: Payton and Forte

1.  WALTER PAYTON (1975-1987)

Hailed as the "Greatest Bear" by Mike Ditka, Payton broke Jim Brown's all-time rushing record and finished a  13-year career with 16,726 yards, a mark later surpassed by Emmett Smith.

He owns 27 team records, Payton was also the best blocker among the NFL running backs.

2.  MATT FORTE (2008-2015)

Second to Payton in career rushing receptions and total yards.

Forte is the first Bear with at least 900 yards in each of his first seven seasons and missed by only two in his eighth.
