how can u put Portis that high the man was only great in denver is that evident i think he proved last year he isnt a top ten back


Portis finishes last season at #11... with that offense. People seem to overlook 1300 yards rushing in 15 games very easily when you compare that to his amazing stretch in Denver. Just look at his schedule this year and tell me that he doesn't improve, especially with his best lineman Jansen healthy again.

Edge is good, but honestly - I don't see what makes him the 3rd or 4th ranked back on most peoples lists. He didn't even crack double digit TDs last year, and Indy's offense last year was historic. Granted, the WR and passing game was focused on more, but that's all the reason not to have Edge that high...

The bears have Rex coming back and everyone better watch out for him i think he will be a big surprise

Pittman could force Caddy to split carries.

Ricky could force Brown to split carries.

Shipp could force Arrington to split carries.

Any of the rookies could split carries, but the only one that probably will is Brown, and that's only if Ricky is really serious about being a premier football player again. Benson fits the new offensive mold perfectly. Jones does not. Benson is the poster child of the new Chicago regime; he is their first draft pick, he is the guy they are paying the most money, he's the guy that will be expected to carry the offense. Jones is a holdover from the previous coaching staff and previous offensive philosophy. Jones's role in the Bear offense will be at the VERY most equal to Marshall Faulk's role in St. Louis, as the change of pace back on passing downs. And no one is under the impression Jackson and Faulk will split carries.

Caddy and Brown were first round picks, Arrington was just a smart play not to reach by Arizona, but clearly taken to start. Caddy and Brown will be getting big bucks, too. How exactly does this differentiate Benson?

Jones is a holdover from the previous coaching staff and previous offensive philosophy.


What are you talkiing about? Thomas Jones never played for the old regime, that was Anthony Thomas. Their current coaching staff just gave the guy a big freaking contract to come play for them last year. If anything, he's more entrenched in his organization than either of the competing veterans other rookies face.
