yes, but they are only rumors. From what Lovie Smith is saying, he's not thrilled with Benson, and neither is the team. Good article on yahoo right now if you want more info. I'd find the link, but I'm too busy mocking like the fantasy nerd I am.

I read the same thing - if Bell goes down on the first hit everytime and can't break any tackles, we could see a lot of Dayne this year!

Heard that Dayne is #1RB this year and T.Bell should do close to what he did last year. Be a #2 RB.

Dayne will be the #1. Bell the #2.

This is Shanahan we're talking about. Nobody knows...not even him...but yeah, right now Dayne's getting the RB1 reps.

I've been keeping pretty close tabs on the subject as I got Dayne in the 10th round of a 14 team league. Here's what I've read so far:

- Dayne has looked good (but not spectacular) so far. This zone blocking running scheme is extremely similar to what he ran in college when he won the Heisman. He's been getting the majority of the first team carries thus far.

- Bell has been decent in spurts. Yes, he's been able to break off some long runs but has been going down on first contact. The goalline work Bell recently did resulted in going down behind the line of scrimmage and a fumble. Bell has been working with the first team.

- Cobb hasn't been doing good, and apparently is getting greater competition from Mike Bell than expected.

- Thomas Jones isn't likely to come to Denver. Most of what I've read so far indicates that Denver is more interested in a TE than a RB. Furthermore, Chicago has been saying it wants to have 2 serviceable RBs on their depth chart. That said, if TJ comes to town there's going to be a huge jumble.

- Shanahan has given praise to both Dayne and Bell so far this year. He has been quoted as saying Bell has the potential as a 1,600 yard back. He also believes this style off offense (zone blocking, one cut) suits Dayne heavily. He's been quoted as saying Bell won't get more than 10-12 carries a game due to his split (last year) and front office officials have mentioned that the workload will be similar to last year. All have expressed that they don't care how the yards are gained as much as winning the football game.

- Lastly, Shanahan has expressed that nothing is set in stone until after the preseason games. "That's what they're for" is the phrase he used.

While I assume not much will change, as I have little confidence in Bell's ability to stay healthy a full year or his indurance, everything depends on how they perform in the preseason.

Seems like a bit of a contradictory statement by Shanahan.

He has been quoted as saying Bell has the potential as a 1,600 yard back.

yeah, word out of chicago is that jones isnt going to be traded.

As of right now, Lovie smith wants jones on the team, but Jerry Angelo is pissed at jones and would like to move him. It is looking like Lovie is winnning that battle at the moment. He doesnt want to enter the season without jones, and has said that Thomas Jones is a big part of the bears plans for THIS YEAR. No doubt he is gone next year.

So, unless Denver makes chicago one hell of an offer, jones is staying put.
I wouldnt be totally surprised to see jones traded to denver, but ashley lelie isnt going to cut it, the bears would need him plus something else of value.

Agreed.

I took it as Shanahan saying IF Bell could keep similar momentum through 25 carries he would be a 1,600 yard back. But as of now he won't be getting more than 12 carries a game unless injury provides more opportunity.
