Packers | Cedric Benson feels he can have big season

Green Bay Packers RB Cedric Benson said he can still be a 1,000-yard back in the NFL, even with the Packers being a pass-first offense. "I definitely have a goal to still rush for 1,000, 1,000-plus, and set up some big numbers," Benson said. "I understand it's not a run-first team and the run is not real heavy here, but there's times where a back gets the ball 25 times (in one game). I'm sure if things are rolling (and) the run game is set to the standard that we're hoping to achieve, it could be way more carries than that. I'm just staying positive and optimistic about it, and I know when I get my opportunities, I'm going to make the best of it."
