    Benson: 46 att, 144yards (3.1 YPC), 1 TD, and 54 yard receiving
    CJ1YPC: 33 att, 45 yards (1.4 YPC), 0 TDs, and 63 yard receiving

    Now you will say that the Packers OL is better. GB has the #26 Run OL rating (we're 32). Keep in mind that one of the factors to that rating is RB YPC. GB also has the 32nd PASS OL (we're 2nd). Are they REALLY that much better?

    I'm not saying Benson is our answer, but he'd be helping the offense more than CJ. Benson is avg'n more yards per game than CJ has total for the year. Benson could atleast give us 50-70 yard per game, and maybe a TD. Use Reynauld as our 3rd down back. Also, what does Palmer love to do... run up the middle, what Benson excels at.

    That's why I brought it up. I'm saying we could've signed Cedric Benson for cheap as the backup and he could now be the starter.

    We all know that a power back would be slightly more effective in this scheme. That's obvious. To me, that alone makes it obvious that the scheme is just awful for CJ. Yet, the Titans signed him to a giant contract knowing what he was. It should have been obvious that the scheme wasn't going to work after last year. Nothing really changed. That's on the coaches. It's not just bad for CJ either. Our O-Linemen would be much better off power blocking. Chris Palmer is more than willing to keep running what he wants and let CJ take all of the blame though.

    2012 cap hits:
    CJ: $10,050,002
    CB: $825,000

    Last year stats:
    CB: 1,067 yards, 6 TDs (3.9 YPC)
    CJ: 1,047 yards, 4 TDs (4.0 YPC)

    Same production, but a cap hit difference of $9,225,002.

    Everyone should pick up Reynaud on their fantasy teams before this week.

    Reynaud has 2 yards on 3 carries, which is actually worse than CJ ;) Oh and his season high so far is a run for 2 yards, which means he didn't get any yards on 2 of his 3 carries.

    The backup running backs have a total of 5 yards on 4 carries, thanks to Harper's 3 yard run!!
