BEARS’ D HAPPY BENSON GONE

7

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?

    Tough call as to which GM sucks more. Angelo or Millen. Lets compare (during Millen’s regime)

    BEARS-
    2007 Greg Olsen decemt , needs a real QB
    2006 No Pick — – —
    2005 Cedric Benson Sucks
    2004 Tommie Harris Great player
    2003 Michael Haynes Sucks
    Rex Grossman Sucks
    2002 Marc Colombo OT Sucks
    2001 David Terrell Sucks

    DETROIT LIONS:

    2007 Calvin Johnson Jury still out, but heading towards suckiness
    2006 Ernie Sims decent
    2005 Mike Williams sucks, and is an out of shape loser
    2004 Roy Williams Good
    2003 Charles Rogers Could rival Cedric Benson in terms of huge busts
    2002 Joey “blue skies” Harrington sucks
    2001 Jeff Backus still plays but sucks nonetheless

    I’d say it’s a toss-up! FIRE MILLEN MANG!!!!!!!

    PB, Angelo has made some very good later round picks in his time. He’s really good at finding defenders. As for offense, he shouldn’t even try. LOL

    No way dude. Angelo has found some studs in the latter rounds.

  • PB

    You’re right. Millen still sucks more! FIRE MILLEN MANG!!!!!!!!!!

    BTW, Shaun Alexander is D-O-N-E…as in, put a fork in him.

  • http://zonersports.com The Zoner

    That’s entirely possible. But it’s worth a look.

  • dhaab

    I’m not a Seahawks fan, but I’m sure I speak for all of them when I say we’ve looked at Alexander plenty over the past two seasons and he’s AWFUL now. Not even a shell of his former self.

    And while it’s true that in some sports like baseball, players (see Edmonds) can hang on and once in a while do positive things to win games, football players just don’t have that luxury. You either play fast in the NFL or you’re career is over.
    Just sayin’. :)

    BTW, can your Cubs at least lose ONE game once in a while?
    They’re peaking too soon. :)
