I agree with bf51, this seems more trivial than anything, relatively speaking. The guy was drunk in a boat, oh noes. We're not talking about some dumbass drunk driving and putting families at risk, or was in some high speed chase with the cops, or having some international drug-selling scheme involving cough medicine, and so on.
It's not worth cutting the guy over, although I wonder if the Bears aren't interested in recently available Dom Rhodes ... and if they are, Benson is gone.
Benson lacks passion for the game, point blank...I should of seen this a long time ago when he was going back and forth with baseball,and breaking into people's houses, I would call him a waste of a talent but at this point he just looks like a waste of a draft pick.
I'm drafting Forte on my fantasy team before anyone else in my league I know that, he is more then likely going to end up the workhorse back with Wolfe in spot duty.

I guarantee that if someone picks Cam Newton in the Top 5 they will regret it.
Benson is probably 50/50 to make the final roster anyway, depending upon if they think Forte is ready to start from day one.
I'm pretty strongly against drunk driving in general, but I also know what total asswhipes lake patrol cops can be, so I'm really not that bothered by this. Usually when people drink and boat they are only putting themselves in harms way.
That's not really true. Every year somebody is killed by a drunk boater at this lake in northern Iowa that's a really popular party destination. Either last year or two years ago some boaters at night were literally run over by a drunk guy who was speeding around the lake.

I agree that lake cops are dicks but this part is just untrue. Some drunk moron hit family on my lake a couple of summers ago and killed them all. That's not the first time I have heard of something like that happening either. I'd have to say driving a boat/jetski is more dangerous than driving a car hammered... There a are no real set driving rules, no lanes to drive in, no stop lights, and much of the time the driver is doing something ( like pulling a skier) that takes their attention off driving. With that said, I've done it many times you just can't be an idiot while doing it, and that's the problem, basically everyone is an idiot.
I saw the interview and i was under the impression that when deon asked what can jet's fans expect from him he said; ''Hopefully a Super Bowl in a couple years, if not this year." I have a feeling the above quote is misquoted and used more to slander gholston as a player, but i havn't heard it since the interview so i could be wrong as well.
your are right about it , this was exactly what i heared , too.
@topic; i never bought the cedric benson nor cadillac williams hype back in 05 . i still believe that ronnie will be MILES better than these both guys combined
