Full story: Chicago Tribune

Cedric Benson usually bites his tongue when it comes to criticism. Sunday, he couldn't help but lash out.

Problem is if Cedric was so good as he says the Bears would at least have more options. He is no Sayers or Payton for sure. This 07 edition has poor coaching to go along with poor efforts from the entire club.

He gains 50 yards and is tired of hearing criticism? This boy has a problem. Run Cedric, run.

Benson's tired of the criticism ???

Well, WE FANS ARE pretty d-a-m-n tired of him being an over-priced turkey of a so-called running back !!

We're tired of his pathetic work ethic.

We're tired of his lack of effort.

We're tired of his NOT being able to break a freaking tackle.

We're tired of his NOT being able to catch a pass, OR a lateral.

We're tired of his "INSISTING upon being 'THE MAN' ", AND NOT DELIVERING.

I assure him ----- THE FANS are MUCH more tired of HIM, than he is of criticism !!!

Tired, Cedric?

Then, quit trying to run like you have any grace whatsoever - NO JUKING - and run straight forward.

Get two yards a carry and the you'll have rose petals tossed at your feet.

Is Benson's intellect SO WANTING that he cannot focus upon catchin the d.a.m.n ball ???

Or actually blocking an oncoming defender ???

These are individual accomplishments ----- that cannot be blamed upon others.

Tired of criticism ---- MY A-S-S !!

drops an easy pass on the opening play of the game, leads to a 3 and out....sets the tone for the whole game.

The Bears should SUE Benson for breach of contract !!

They expected a FOOTBALL PLAYER !!!

Gee,---- can you tell that I'm REALLY getting worked-up over this worthless piece of c-r-a-p ??

I'd better stop, and let my blood pressure go down (Yeah, just like Benson, at the FIRST HIT!)

Gee, Cedric! I don't undertand what Bears fans are upset about! Between tickets and parking, it is over $100 to get into a Bears game. Then the team shells out millions of doallars for a running back with a poor attitude that doesn't get many yards, can't catch and is a poor blocker. I don't know what they are upset about, either.

Benson is quickly becoming his own worst enemy. He really should look at how he has been performing before making stupid comments. Its not about you getting your 100 yards, its about you not getting first downs on short yardage, its about you not breaking any tackles, its about you looking slow, its about you playing so uninspired.
week 1 19 carries 42 yards
week 3 16 carries 46 yards
week 4 15 carries 50 yards
week 5 27 carries 64 yards (yes 27 carries)
week 6 18 carries 67 yards
week 7 17 carries 46 yards
week 8 13 carries 50 yards
The reason they take him out on third down plays is because he is a terrible blocker and has terrible hands if Griese ever wanted to throw a dump out pass to him. Also Cedric, when you team is losing by more than one score with time running out they probably will need to pass more rather then giving you more carries to get your 100 yards.
You whined the entire time you were on the bench, now you are whining when people criticize your lackluster play. This guy is really unbelievable.

Well, maybe if he could average more than 3.1 yards per carry (TJ averaged 4.1 last year), he wouldn't get as much flak.

Benson deserves the harsh criticism. Is he afraid of getting hit too hard? Is that what makes him get the ball and drop to the ground after a couple of yards? Stop giving him the ball and maybe we'll get somewhere.

I think Cedric should change his last name. I call him Cedric "Bench him". He is a WASTED draft pick, he got his money up front from the Bears, end of story.

I, for one, am tired of paying outrageous prices for over-inflated tickets to watch a team who lacks any kind of drive. At least last year we had a defense to cheer for but overall, the bears have been dismal for many years. But this team simply doesn't care! So we should just stop paying for tickets and maybe the McCaskys will get the hint. Papa Bear must be rolling in his grave. His baby girl has done a terrible job!
