He Gone

While a DUI is a weighty subject, considering the body of the off-field issues that have dogged Cedric Benson since he joined the Bears in 2005, perhaps this will be the proverbial straw which broke the camel's back. Benson, already skating on the thinnest of ice with Bears management following an arrest for drunkenly piloting a party boat, will almost assuredly be cut by the Bears following this latest incident. If Tank Williams, a player who actually produced for the team, can't stay in Chicago after a few police run-ins, the lackluster Benson most assuredly will not survive the week.

And in related news, if you feel as if these shenanigans keep things interesting on our mediocre football squad then the future is bright. Methinks that if Angelo ever decides to leave football, many a law firm would love to bring him into the fold to identify potential clients.
