  • Thoughts on Cedric Benson

    If you give him enough carries he'll go for 1000. Could be a low priced back-up that we are looking for.

    If he were extremely cheap, then okay. Personally, I'd rather give Scott the opportunity or draft a RB in the 2nd or 3rd round.

    I've never been crazy about Benson, including when he had good years.

Heck, if you give me enough carries I will go for 1000 too. Not a ringing endorsement. For vet min, Droughns type of deal I'd give him a shot, but I doubt he will sign for that.

        Why has everyone just given up on da'rell scott? Nobody wants to give this kid a shot?

          I think they like Scott. Last year was tough for rookies with the lock out.

          I trust the picks Reese makes and I think JJ and Scott will contribute this year.

          You have to love his blazing speed. I know it was pre season, but man he was fast on those TD runs.

            So we're just going to keep working our way down the FA RB list then, are we?

              By enough carries you mean like 2400.

                Pass...

                He would routinely pick up 100 yards rushing for the Bengals but only when given 30+ carries. Nothing impressive about him at all

                  Lol, who's below Benson after he signs with someone else? Is Shaun Alexander still kicking around? Corey Dillon?

                      I have seen so many people mention the draft as a way to replace Jacobs. If they draft a RB next month, trust me he won't see the field for like the first eight weeks or more. TC flat out doesn't trust rookie running backs. I am not saying he is wrong but it's just the way it is. We still need someone to replace BJ. If they feel Scott is ready, then so be it. But if they don't, then they need to get somebody via free agency. Remember how long it took him to trust Bradshaw in his rookie year.

                        A bunch I think... I guess it's something for some people to think about before the draft...

                          YPC is awful. Great in college, not in the pros.

                            We haven't seen anything because he only had 5 carries last year. U have to have opportunity to show what u have

                              Would be more affective than BJ. But I'd rather have some fresh legs as our backup RB
