Quote of the Day
“We didn’t stick on what the offense was built on. When we had Carson and Chad we kept a strong identity in the run game and we kind of got away from it and didn’t let that part of the offense grow and bit the bullet on it a little bit.”
-Cedric Benson, Cincinnati Bengals’ running back
You tell ‘em Cedric! Why didn’t we run the ball more when our top RB led the NFL in fumbles, averaged just 2.1 yards after contact (7th worst in the NFL), and is tied for 49th in the NFL with just 3.9 yards per carry?! POUND THE ROCK!
But seriously, Cedric Benson sucks. I guess he’ll always have the rare distinction of being a bust, changing teams, playing well, then somehow entering bust status again all before age 30. So he’s got that going for him…which is nice.
