BEARS’ D HAPPY BENSON GONE
Great stuff from MJD and Shutdown Corner. Apparently Jay Glazer was on the Dan Patrick show recalling how the Bears’ D wanted to injure Cedric Benson so Thomas Jones was insured the starter’s job. Just wild.
Has there ever been a player in Chicago that was as despised as Benson? There isn’t one solid example or story that points to something about him people liked.
Is he the biggest 1st round draft bust in Bears history? You have to of course throw in Cade Mc Nown, Curtis Enis, Michael Haynes, Stan Thomas…never mind. This is taking too long. He’s in the team photo though, to be sure. And that photo is the goofy grin mugshot from his most recent arrest.
And for the people that think Shaun Alexander isn’t worthy of a phone call–are you nuts?
