Benson May Suprise

I know we heard all the amazing passing reports last year at of Bourbanois, but I'm going to throw this out for discussion.  It may be possible the Cedric is ready for a big season.  Lovie appears optimistic that he may surprise...

Will the starting running back position be Cedric Benson’s to lose or will there be an open competition between Benson and Matt Forte, similar to what will transpire at quarterback?

It’s totally different. Matt Forte has never played a down for us here. He’s like all other rookies, starting from the bottom and working his way up. Cedric was our starter last year, and he’s our starter right now. For someone else to be the starter, they’re going to have to beat him out. I’m going to put Adrian Peterson and Garrett Wolfe in there also. We like what Matt Forte brings. When you draft a player that high, you’re expecting him to eventually play and have a role with your team. But Cedric Benson has looked good in workouts out here. I’m hoping that Cedric will get back to form and we see that guy that we know he is


It is not hard to read Lovie Smith.  If he sees a guy that might do well he makes it sound like an open competition.  If not he praises the starter and says everyone has a shot.  If he has to make the guy a starter even though he's not happy, he says Rex is our QW
