Cedric Benson didn't even watch the Seahawks game?

In his locker room interview video on the team site he said he didn't watch the game this week because he was in Texas and he would have had to go to a sports bar to see it on TV.

Now, maybe this is one of those examples of a fan on the outside reading WAY too much into something, but even just from the standpoint of being a professional involved with an organization, don't you think it would be important for you to be AWARE of what was happening in the game? I know he was going to be sitting through film study this week, but if he was hurt he would have at least been on the sideline watching the game unfold. Maybe watching a game on TV live as it was happening would have been a unique opportunity to learn. But beyond that, aren't you even a FAN of the team you actually PLAY FOR? It was an important game for the team. A win put them right in the thick of the playoff hunt. Does he really care so little that he wouldn't bother finding somewhere to watch? You are a millionaire professional athlete. I am positive if you called your agent, or hell anyone in the Bengals organization, they would have found a way for you to watch the freaking game wherever you wanted to watch it.

I'm just less and less impressed by Cedric Benson all the time. I know this is a minor thing and doesn't directly relate to his performance on the field (which, by the way, has been lass than spectacular this year), but I really think he is the last of the old guard malcontents that need to be washed out of this locker room. If he's not stutter-stepping for a 3 YPC average he's whining about not getting the ball enough or getting in fights at bars that are always "misunderstandings." He would have to be 10 times the player he is now to be worth the hassles he gives this team and apparently he doesn't even care enough if they win or lose if it's not going to pad his stat line. I really hope we can find a way to draft Trent Richardson next year...
