I know how you feel sfcpollo... "ahhhh!!! *ripping hair off my scalp* i benched him to start benson... i cant believe he actually played... "

I got up early, checked all the way up until 11:30 or so & everyone was still saying he wasn't going to play. I've been singing his praises all year & would've played him had I known he was going to play. However, I played S. Davis instead & got waffled. Now I am going to lose my 5th consecutive matchup & it is one that I would've won had I played Jones.

Thanx to Guttpuppy for the awesome signature.

same here, i definitely would have played him had there been the smallest hint he might go, it sounded to me like it was going to be benson's day to burn or shine. it turned out to be ok, i still won by a decent margin but tj duckett gave me a big fat zero where t jones should have been.

why didn't they draft a QB instead of another RB...????
stupid chicago management......they need to play him sooner or later.......they signed him to a huge contract.

I have Jones too, benched him for Stokely for my flex position. But I have LT and Alexander, so they carried me this week. But this week, I am playing Jones, LT and Alexander!!!

Cedric Benson is the 00's answear to the 90's Curtis Ennis.

Plus I thought that Benson jumped the shark when he became the top aide to the governor (Sorry that the wrong "Benson"- what were we talking about...)

The Bears had a ton of problems going into this year, but I don't think running back was one of them. I am a lifelong Bears fan, and I was happy with Jones at RB, with A-Train as a change of pace. Considering the laundry list of things Angelo could have addressed in the draft, he takes one of the few positions the Bears don't really need help with. His days are numbered in Chicago.

Yeah..no kidding! I guess he can't say much after last week's performance! TJ is having a great year...I hope he can stay healthy and continue to be the (only) bright spot on the Bears offense!
