Since I have been called by 4 people on this subject let me give my opinion here, in public, for all to read…..
With the 4th pick in the 2005 NFL Draft the Chicago Bears took Cedric Benson. What’s the deal? Well, Cedric Benson played for my most hated team in college football, the Texas Longhorns, and he was drafted by my favorite team in the NFL. A number of my friends and various family members had fun asking me about the pick over the weekend.
Anyhow, here is how I break this pick down. Over the last four years my most hated player in college football was Cedric Benson, of the University of Texas Longhorns. He made my Fightin’ Texas Aggies look like a 3rd rate high school team. I hated him. I hated him for going to Texas over A&M. I pretty much hate all players that choose Texas over A&M. Well, as of yesterday afternoon, when the Bears picked Cedric Benson with the fourth overall pick he became one of my…… FAVORITE players in the NFL….. 🙂 Yup, that quick I changed my mind. I now love Cedric Benson and fully belive he will carry the Bears back into the playoffs.
