SB Nation is running a series ranking the position groups of all 32 teams in the NFL. Today's post is about the running backs, and the Chicago Bears landed 4th on the list. I wonder where they would have fallen had Matt Forte not signed? After the jump we'll take a look at what they had to say about the fellas running the ball for the Bears.

The addition of free agent Michael Bush gave the Bears more than enough confidence to play hardball with Matt Forte over a contract extension before ultimately signing him. Forte's talent saved Chicago's offense from Mike Martz, who seemed determined to get Jay Cutler killed on a seven-step drop. Bush would have been more than capable of being a feature back. Bush's power and Forte's finesse will be a problem for opposing defenses.

What do you guys think? Do the Bears backs rank too low, too high? Sound off in the comment thread.
