Great article about Rudi running


Recommended Posts

From Lonnie Wheeler at the Cincinnati Post. . .

Bengals must think pass first

The stupidest Bengals stat of all tells us that when Rudi gets 25 rushes, Cincinnati is 17-0.

Too bad he never got to 25, to bury that accursed statistic once and for all. By the fourth quarter, the Bengals were so desperately behind that Johnson's workload was halted at 22 carries for 79 yards. Maybe we can count Kenny Watson's four runs and Jeremi Johnson's one and Chad Johnson's reverse and the nice 8-yard dash produced by Reggie McNeal when he lined up at quarterback. There. Not counting a scramble by Palmer, the Bengals ran the ball 29 times. And they lost.

Maybe now they can get back to what they do. To throwing the ball first, and giving it to Rudi here and there, and with a late-game lead.
