l] . In taking its goal tally

    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 well.The Bears plan to use a
    rush-by-committee approach with Langford, KaDeem Carey, Jacquizz Rodgers and
    fifth-round pick Jordan Howard in order to keep their running backs fresh and
    take advantage of an opportunity when one of them is playing well.Id like them
    all to stand out, Fox said. Thats why we build competition. Thats why were here
    at camp. Not just at the running back position, that would include every
    position on our football team.Langford sounds determined to show he can be the
    No. 1 running back, a spot Forte held for eight years. He has worked on becoming
    a better receiver after the coaches called on him to do just that. He bulked up,
    adding a few extra pounds, in an effort to handle a greater load and gain a few
    more yards after being hit.What separates Langford at the moment is his speed
    and there could be opportunities playing behind what the Bears believe is a more
    athletic line, particularly on the right side. They moved three-time Pro Bowl
    pick Kyle Long back to right guard after he filled in at right tackle and
    brought in veteran right tackle Bobby Massie.The expectations are higher now --
    for the Bears and Langford.I welcome them, especially playing in Chicago, he
    said. They love the Bears.Game notes Fox would not say how much time Long is
    expected to sit out because of a strained left calf or confirm if he had an MRI.
