I know what you mean, there is a lot of disagreement among Bears fans on this. I like TJ, he is a workhorse and did a good job last year. But I think Benson can be even better. In watching him last year I thought he had more power than TJ and could get through the hole a bit quicker. Admittedly he didn't have a lot of carries to base it on but the long runs he had against Detroit and New Orleans last year showed what he could do.
Benson spent the last season in Lovie's doghouse but still seemed to be coming on before his knee strain. He started this season's training camp as the #1 until his immaturity popped up again. All in all I can easily see him as #1 at some point this year.
