Bob O'Reilly and his crew of Do-Gooders are at it again. What in the hell can it hurt to at least bring the guy in for a workout? Ridiculous!

Why would you even bother bringing him in for a look see. He did absolutely nothing while he was in Chicago, why would it be any different here?

It has nothing to do with being a "do-gooder". There is a reason he has been unemployed for as long as he has been. It's called not beeing a good running back which he has proven over the last couple of years. Benson has proven NOTHING in the NFL. More than likely, the guys they bring in have been cut recently and may be a surprise. Benson has been in the league a couple of years now and the only thing he has proven is that he cannot handle being an NFL running back.

When did he say that Cedric isn't one of them? He said earlier that he had no idea who was coming in.

I find all of the posts about the character of our players really interesting. In addition weak line play and a soft secondary, I guess we simply have too many high character guys on our team to win. We have had some issues, but a DUI and a charge for resisting arrest....well, it isn't enough to win in this league. If we had someone on the roster with a concealed hand weapon charge, perhaps someone found in possession with drugs...even better, possession of drugs with the intent to distrubute...something, anything, we would have been more competitive on Sunday.

We should bring in Cedric for a workout tomorrow...but I am just concerned that his rap sheet isn't where it should be to get this team over the top. I give him credit for adding the drunk boating charge by driving drunk, but I think we are going to need something more in the line of a felony to put the fear into the top defenses that we have yet to face.

Lets just hope Slaton and/orTaylor don't do such a good job of staying out of trouble...then we won't have to bring someone else in.

You forgot the sarcasm sign
We don't necessarily need criminals but overlooking talent because they don't have a squeeky clean, spotless record is kind of dumb.

who knows with AJ,Mario, Demeco and others with their work ethnic ... who knows what kind of influence that they would have on say a Cedric Benson? no body knows.. but to bring in 4-5 no names, I don't see how much they would help.. maybe it is james allen



only one person I could see that would help this team

I heard that. He gave his Craig Biggio like answers to almost everything. Gary's answer seemed like he didn't want any part of Benson,it was almost like he chuckled when asked the question.
