Regardless of the fact that Cedric Benson gained a meager 18 yards on nine carries in Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers, he will dominate this season.

Many people are quick to overlook Benson's career on-field achievements because of his unfortunate brushes with the law.

While his character as a man is definitely in question, his production as a running back is still at a high level.

Drafted No. 4 overall by the Chicago Bears, Benson is still strong, healthy and producing at a high level.

He has signed a one-year deal this season to carry the ball for the Green Bay Packers and is likely to be running with a big chip on his shoulder.

Many teams would be remiss to think Benson won't be a force this season—let's take a look at the reasons why.
