Thinkin on it further, T Jones' little brother is tearin it up in Dallas. He's not even thinkin about some rook. A man just can't have little brother out there showin him up.

Am I the only person who doesn't see this as a cocky statement?

The funny thing is that while the statement is true, you could also simply state the TJones is fresh from the offseason. Give him a few more games and he'll do an '04. Then Benson will see the carries.

Their relationship is a pretty cool one...I read an article about them that said they go and scout each other's next opponent together. When J. Jones was academically ineligible at ND, he transferred to AZ State so he could be near Thomas who was playing with the Cardinals at the time. They're the only boys in the family of 5 kids, so they're really close...I'm sure they motivate each other.
Doesn't it suck to get beat at Fantasy Football...by a girl?

Ehhh, it's true. Jones wouldn't be worried about losing his job if the A-train were still in town.

While I see it as a somewhat cocky statement, I don't see anything wrong with stating the obvious! Is it that assinine to think that the #4 drafted RB who was drafted as a much-needed "power back" for Turner's system standing on the sidelines is not a little extra motivation for T. Jones. One, maybe two, bad games is all it will take for T. Jones to be benched once Benson learns all his blitz assignments.

If you do a search on pre-draft talk either in the leftovers section or in the Bears section, you will quickly see that I had absolutely no desire for the Bears to take Benson. I wanted Edwards or Williams, but I am a firm believer that once a guy is drafted you have to pull for that guy. Of course I am on the Benson bandwagon now. You think I want him to suck, meaning the Bears wasted the #4 pick and millions of dollars? That would be great for my team!

Think of it as two guys going for the same promotion in an office. Is it hard to believe that both may try a little harder while they are competing for the job. T. Jones knows that Benson was essentially brought here to replace him! T. Jones knows that if he falters Benson will get a chance and if Benson does well when he gets that chance it's back-up duty for T. Jones!

Was it cocky for Benson to state the obvious? Hell yes it was, but he didn't say anything that anybody didn't know yet.

Yeah, I used to live in Norton Va, which is a neighboring town to Big Stone Gap, where they're from. I saw the game where Thomas beat the HS rushing record once held by Terry Kirby. It was powell valley against JI burton. Thomas scored from everywhere on the field. That was the first and only time I called my brother in Jersey to tell him to watch for a player to soon be in the NFL. He was flat out incredible that day!

Agreed. This isnt nearly as bad as you guys make it out to be. When I read the title I was expecting, "Defenses have to focus on me, so TJ is free to roam." Saying he motivates TJ isnt that bad at all.
