okie last season that he was capable of from MJL456's blog

BOURBONNAIS, Ill. Olsen Pierre Jersey . -- Jeremy Langford had a pretty good tutor to follow last year in Matt Forte. Now he has a big opportunity for the Chicago Bears.Langford came to camp as the front-runner in a stiff competition to replace one of the most successful running backs in franchise history after showing some promise as a rookie last season.Mentally, I feel like Im ready to go, he said Friday. But football, its all a process. Its only the second day of camp and weve been off for a long time. As the camp goes, I will feel a lot better and a lot more confident in knowing the playbook in and out.The Bears are trying to make a jump after finishing last in the NFC North in their first season under coach John Fox and general manager Ryan Pace. They rebuilt their defense and reworked their offensive line. But they also lost two of their most productive players on offense when they traded outspoken tight end Martellus Bennett and decided not to re-sign Forte.The two-time Pro Bowl running back is second in franchise history to Hall of Famer Walter Payton in yards rushing (8,602), receptions (487), yards from scrimmage (12,718), 100-yard rushing games (24) and games with 150 yards or more from scrimmage (25). He was also one of the more popular players in the locker room, someone teammates could turn to for advice about everything from training to football to parenting.But the Bears had a long list of areas to address. They wanted to get younger and they believed they could replace Forte.Langford showed glimpses as a rookie last season that he was capable of handling a heavier load, finishing with 537 yards rushing and 279 receiving while forging his way into the rotation.He was particularly effective in back-to-back wins at San Diego and St. Louis midway through the season while Forte was injured. His 72 yards rushing and 70 receiving against the Chargers turned a few heads and he didnt let up the following week against the Rams. He had an 83-yard touchdown catch and finished with 109 yards receiving to go with 73 yards rushing and a touchdown.I think I can play all three downs, Langford said. Thats what I want to do and prove -- that I am capable of that. But theres a lot of guys in the room that can do it as we
