Encoring some older Fanposts in the wake of Kenny getting the axe...


Does Kenny Watson even get a chance?

I am getting tired of Lewis not using Kenny at all. Last season when Perry was diving to the ground to avoid contact and he brought in Cedric Benson I was shocked that Watson didn't get any touches. In '07 Kenny was a force when Rudi was injured and no one wanted to step-up and make a play. It was Kenny's perseverance that kept Cincy in those games. We owe him a chance at 3rd down back.

Give Kenny Watson a chance

Assuming he's back from injuries, I really hope the Bengals give Watson a shot to be the starter.  I've seen nothing impressive from Benson.  Watson's worst ever ypc average over a season is better than Benson's best ever.  In 2007 when the o-line was injury depleted and just miserable all around, Watson still put up very good numbers.  His entire career he's posted solid numbers, well over 4 ypc, and he's a good blocker.  I don't understand why he doesn't get a shot to be the starter.

Kenny Watson's career stats:


Career Stats

The 4.6 career ypc isn't too bad. Espeically if you figure the great Corey Dillon only averaged 4.3 ypc and Rudi Johnson only averaged 3.9 ypc behind essentially the same line that Kenny got his 4.6 behind. In fact, Rudi never even had a single season where he got 4.6 ypc.

But it is what it is. The Bengals don't keep old players around. When you hit 30, you'd better rent a moving van, because you're getting cut.... (except for Chad Eight Five)
