How Cedric Benson Will Impact The Green Bay Packers

Last year the Green Bay Packers had one of, if not, the best offensive productions team. And ironically had one of, if not, the worst running games in the league. I can't tell you how many times I would see them in and 2nd or 3rd and 1 situation and fail to convert for a first down. And despite having one of the best passing
and receiving games in the league, their lack of a running game caught up to them and ended up being
one of the reasons why they had an early playoff exit.

Enter: Cedric Benson. With Benson, the Packers are finally getting the running back they so desperately needed. Benson may not be the flashiest RB in the league, but he has proven himself capable of producing
some offense. The past three seasons Benson has ran for 1,000+ yards. And something interesting to point out is that in 2010 Benson alone, rushed for more yards than Packers' running backs Brandon Jackson, James Starks, and John Kuhn combined! That alone tells you how anemic the running game was for the Packers.

With Benson now part of the offense, the Packers will now make opposing defenses second guess themselves. And because Benson's ability to produce rushing yards, its only going to open up the passing
game up more for Aaron Rodgers and his receivers. So not only will the Packers be improving their run game, but it will actually end up helping the passing game more too. Alert to opposing defenses, the Packers
just may be even more dangerous on offense this year than they were last year!
