Earlier in the year I was angry at Marvin Lewis for not giving Bernard Scott enough cariies this year. I thought it was a lack of carries behind his lack of production this year but it simply isn't. When Cedric Benson missed the seattle it was his oppourtunity to prove he deserved more carries and he didn't. He carried the ball 22 times for only 76 yards! He has shown flashes but he doesn't sustain it. I wish he did more with the carries he gets.
Brandon Tate is another dissapointment. He has been just as inconsistent. These past few weeks he hasn't been explosive at all. He's back to calling fair catches when he can run it and taking chances when he shouldn't. In Seatle he looked unstoppable on punt returns. I think he needs the threat of losing punts to Pacman Jones for motivation.The bengals are keeping Adam Jones off them so he won't reinjure his groin or hamstring. Quan Cosby might not have been as explosive but he was consistent.
