    Last year he had some sucsess when the offensive line was playing well. You can also attribute that to the 1-2 punch, and an existing passing attack, but he still didnt play atrocious. According to Fox Sports, he was averaging 4.1ypc last year. Not amazing, but its around the average. Thats when the line is playing good in his second year.

    And I came to that conclusion after I read it somewhere *dont ask me where*. I like the comparison, I am not saying that he is LJ or Alexander, but he has shown that he can get a good 5-10yrd run when there is a hole, a la offensive line. Like I said, build the line, see how he does, its a win win
    I agree that runningback is far from the Bears main issue. I'm probably just thinking of Benson as the 5th overall pick instead of a runningback who could be solid but unspectacular. It's sometimes hard to separate a players draft position and what can be expected out of them a few years later.

        I think they are going to bring him back for one more year. That said, I do expect them to add a back, whether it be through FA or the draft. Considering our glaring OT/QB concerns, along with other potential concerns at S and WR, amongst others, I think we'll look FA hard. Just not sure if we have the room to sign Burner, but we'll have to wait and see. Can't think of who else is a FA RB right now.

          they already have that scat back (garrett wolfe) that can compliment bensons game and bring some energy and change of pace to this bears O. why arent they using him more often?

            A few of the big names:

            Jamal Lewis
            Fred Taylor
            Chris Brown
            Julius Jones

            Julius Jones could be an interesting experiment in Chicago.

              Because he's too small.

                And Benson already has a great relationship with a Jones brother.



                Oh wait.....


                I'd like Chris Brown personally. We apparently kicked the tires on him this offseason but he signed with the Titans because he thought he'd get more opportunities.


                Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

                    We could but Benson would have a temper tantrum. But then he would smoke some pot and things would be cool. Im all for Chris Brown. A lot will depend on what scheme the next offensive coordinator will bring in.

                      It all depends on how much the Bears are willing to spend. They could get Jamal Lewis...

                        Its the O line and Qb, all they need is a good backup, to split the carries with, also Turner is available.

                          Haha, I forgot that they were brothers.

                              It was second-hand.

                                Other then the fact that he sucks. Nothing else.
                                Sad to see how him,Cadillac, and Brown are doing.
