    He has one rush in his NFL career over 29 yards. Says all you need to know about him.

    Jags aren't great but Zimmer with a nice game to stop MJD. Having Dunlap healthy makes a huge difference.
    If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.

    Miami looks really good today could be a shootout!

    I think the running back thing is a bit overrated. They're becoming a dime a dozen. Can you name me any stud RBs on a good team who are consistently healthy? Ray Rice is the only name I can come up with.

    Why does it matter if they're on a good team? It's not Adrian Peterson or Darren McFadden's fault the Vikings or Raiders have sucked.

    Peterson, McFadden, MJD, and Ray Rice backs definitely aren't a dime a dozen.
    They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

    I think the need for an old fashion RB....like the 70's and 80's.....is no longer needed. You just need a serviceable back.....which is what the Law Firm is, without the moaning and groaning about getting more carries.

    Lawfirm is averaging 3.6 yds per carry, I would call that below average and I hope the Bengals look to shore up this position with someone younger and quicker then Benjarvis Green Ellis.

    It's the extra last name that slows him down.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    I think they were going to draft a RB this year, but the draft didn't fall that way. It always seemed like the RB that was slotted for them in each round got picked a little early. The Bengals wound up with some darn good players this year. So far Zeitler has been very good, you don't even notice him out there, which is the ultimate complement for a rookie offensive linemen. Still and Thompson have done some nice things when they have got there chances. Thompson was pushing the pocket today. Sanu, Charles, and Jones show plenty of promise. Vontaze Burfict is a steal. We haven't even seen Kirkpatrick yet.

    They did take Boom Herron in the sixth round, and I felt he was a major disappointment in training camp. As a Buckeye fan I thought he had some potential. But he looked lost. He is on the practice squad
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    I'd prefer the NFL team I root for to win. I could care less how many yards my team's RB averages if they go 5-11 every year. You win in the NFL by throwing the football and getting pressure on the opposing quarterback. The Bengals are averaging 28 points a game with very little running game.

    Think about the Super Bowl winners the past several years. Giants, Packers, Saints, Steelers, Colts, etc. Who were their RBs? Didn't really matter all that much...

    Does anyone listen to Mike & Mike? About a week ago I was listening to Golic (ex-Brown) and he nailed it.... "How is it the Bengals seem to be able to find good receivers, but the Browns can't?" The Bengals, other then AJ, basically gut their receiving corp and bring in another group that looks even better."

    So true. AJ is something else, but I love the "little guy" Hawkins. You get the ball in his hands and look out!

    Meanwhile, we got stone hands up in Cleveland. You have to go to the Brown's HOF to find a good receiver.

    Congrats, and solid win Bengal fans.

    I watched that Browns game on Thursday, and I can't count the number of darts Weeden's receivers dropped. If Cleveland ever gets that guy even one decent target, watch out.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?

    The other problem with running back is they are a bit like relief pitchers and hockey goalies. When they're good, they're very useful. But its way too hard to tell ahead of time who's going to be good and who's going to disappoint that it rarely makes sense to shell out big bucks for a running back.

    The difference is that unlike relief pitchers and hockey goalies, you can win without a top notch running game.
    When people say that I donít know what Iím talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
