I like how you ignored the Andre Davis reference...

Benson has only been with one team...So "all those failed chances" are still less than all Andre Davis' failed chances....

And I'm not sure why Walter being solid was "expected"...as a fan that can only watch so many practices and games what are you basing that off of ?

This thread makes me really miss Domanick Davis. He was a real runningback. I think this day in age you need 2 running backs to have a good team. Teams that rely on one back are upping their chances of one play taking away their entire running game.

What is wrong with bringing Benson in and giving him a chance? Give him some short yardage situations, and let him use that big body to pound on the defense. Then Slaton will cut them up with the speed.

How about Terrell Davis for that matter?

That hasn't stopped the Texans from signing OTHER bad players.

It's our signature: We sign crappy players.

The worse thing that happens is this: He stinks and we cut him. Hey, Kubiak is used to doing this already. What's the hold-up here?

The best thing that happens is this: He works great, in combination with Slaton.

Seriously, I don't understand Kubiak's scoring system on free agents. Unless Daddy McNair says he can't even think about certain players due to their sordid off-field behavior.

You are wasting your time BigWig. Texecutioner is the authority on the rest of Cedric Benson's life and knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that he will never amount to anything no matter what changes around him.

No thanks. I think Vinny could probably be a better RB for this team, bad hip and all. On top of that, his character is of ill repute. He is a "name" only. He hasn't done one thing in the NFL to make anyone think he will amount to anything.

His next job should be "you want fries with that"

depends on what you call upgrade.. hard to not call benson an upgrade when we have two guys that basically can't get on the field

Heck even if he gained 1 yard it is 1 yard more than Green has gained this season or almost preseason.


If it weren't for Ike, we would be looking at the 1/4 of the season already again where our starting runningback can't get on the field
