  • Cedric Benson

    How do you guys feel about him starting and carrying the full load?

  • #2
    I think he will do alright. I'm not fully confident that he can do it, but hardly anything is a sure thing.

    There is a difference between being certain and being only clear of what is the right thing to do. If you wait until things are certain, you most likely waited to long to act. One has to make choices when things seem clear, and I think letting Benson handle the full load at RB is one of those things. Its clear enough that he should be able to do fine, but its not certain that he can. But if the Bears waited to be certain, they probably would not have gotten anything back for Jones.

      I don't think the Bears will let Benson Carry the full load. I think the Bears will try out a Benson-Peterson combo and they will bring in another RB in the draft most likely on the second day.

        I should have phrased it better. Let Benson be the starter and get the majority of the carries. Peterson will still probably come in on passing downs for his blocking.

          I am glad, I love Bensons running style. If he will be in on all 3 downs, I doubt it. I am confident he can do it. And to anyone who says he is injury prone, they have been freak things both years.

            I like Benson as a player. I don't like him as a person. Hopefully with Jones gone people will stop asking him so many questions where he says so many stupid things.


            Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

              Benson is truly a nut job. However, he really came on this past season. I think he'll do well, and I expect AP to really excel as a backup. He will be a nice surprise for us.

                I don't think that any of the bears fan on this forum will consider AP surprising.

                Thanks to BoneKrusher Credit and Rep to him for the sig.

                  an issue i have with making Peterson the #2 back is that it would limit if not completely eliminate his role on special teams where he's one of the best in the league.


                  Sig by me... Hold the applause.

                    I think we'll more than likely still draft a slasher to take on a little of Jone's old roles. I still like Brandon Jackson.

                      Who do we have a better chance of grabbing in the third round? Brandon Jackson or Darius Walker.

                        Jackson'd be the better pick.

                          VLS would have to disagree if he doesn't want AP being the #2.

                            agreed, from what ive seen of Benson im not sold. However Peterson seems to be one of the best situational runners in the league.

                              Of those two, Walker is more likely to be available then. Jackson might get drafted by a zone blocking team some time in the third round, maybe by the Texans. While Walker probably can be had early day 2 of the draft.
