CEDRIC BENSON’S SUCKAGE IS EQUAL TO ANYONE

CEDRIC BENSON

The Chicago Bears today released troubled running back Cedric Benson who was arrested twice this offseason.

Benson is the latest in a string of bust running backs drafted by the Bears. Curtis Enis and Rashaan Salaam were both superstar college runners who flamed out and busted in their NFL careers after being high Chicago draft picks.

What’s amazing is in a side-by-side comparison of their statistics, Benson was JUST AS UNPRODUCTIVE as either Enis or Salaam despite being drafted higher (fourth) in the first round.

Look at the career stats. Benson is just as big a failure as either Enis or Salaam:

CEDRIC BENSON

Career Rushing Yards: 1593

Yards Per Carry: 3.8

Career Games/Starts: 35/12

Career Receptions: 26

Career TD’s: 10

CURTIS ENIS

Career Rushing Yards: 1497

Yards Per Carry: 3.3

Career Games/Starts: 36/18

Career Receptions: 59

Career TD’s: 6

 

RASHAAN SALAAM

Career Yards: 1684

Yards Per Carry: 3.6

Career Games/Starts: 33/21

Career Receptions: 16

Career TD’s: 14

 

 Conclusion: Cedric Benson actually ran for fewer career yards with the Bears than Rashaan Salaam (who was on an SI list of top 25 draft busts EVER.) He also started barely half as many games.

Benson also played in less games and had half as many career receptions as Curtis Enis.
