Think about it though, if Benson is getting carries late in the game, but he's only had around 15 while Jones has had 20-25, the defense has seen 35-40 but Benson is still fresh from oonly having 15, thus making his pounding style even more effective later in the game.
Running the ball that much will never happen in the NFL. 40 rushes a game?
Maybe not 40, but the Bears hit 30 consistently last year. In their first game against the Lions, Jones and Benson combined for 36 carries between the two of them.

I would say go ahead and start Benson, to me he is something special.

I think Jones should start. He has proven himself and he has worked in the Bears system. Use Benson for the goal line or tough running situations and they'll be fine...
