Bernard Scott Looking For More Carries

When asked about the amount of carries he was getting, Bengals running back Bernard Scott admitted that he would like to be more involved in the offense but has not, and will not approach the coaches with his desire. He believes there are other ways to go about earning more carriers. He says,

"I don’t think that’s going to get me anywhere. There’s other ways to get playing time. They see that I’m working hard and I’m going to get my opportunities."

Scott has seen an increase in his role over the past two games with double digit snaps against the Buffalo Bills and Jacksonville Jaguars, including scoring the go-ahead touchdown against the Jaguars. Although Scott is only averaging 2.9 yards per carry to Cedric Benson's 4.0 yards per carry, Scott has only had 19 carries all year. If he were able to get into a rhythm with increased carries, his yards per carry will almost certainly rise. Last year for example, Scott averaged 4.9 yards per carry to Benson's 3.5 yards per carry.

Benson is not a fan of the two-back system as was covered on Cincy Jungle earlier. He likes being the sole workhouse and is not worried about breaking down. Benson and Scott have two completely different styles and it would only help the team if their opponents had to game-plan for the both of them. Scott seems to be a natural fit for the West Coast Offense that offensive coordinator Jay Gruden has implemented and I for one would like to see what he can do with an increased workload.
