Benson didn't run scared as a Bear. That was Thomas Jones. Jones used to jump out of bounds to avoid contact. Benson used to lower his shoulder and plow right into defenders.
Benson showed flashes of good stuff in Chicago. The thing that caused all of his problems was his amazing ME ME ME ME ME ME arrogant %$#hole attitude. It was like he thought he was still playing at Texas, where they treated him like a king.
Maybe getting cut gave him a kick start. I dunno. I always thought cutting him without waiting for the result of his legal problems was stupid. Turns out the charges were dropped, and we now need a power runner to share the load with Forte.
