Injuries can make a team better and in the Bengals case suspensions and forced retirements can make them better

Last week in Denver we saw Willis McGahee play for an injured Knowshon Moreno and I beleive it made there team better.  We see it all the time in the NFL, a starter gets hurt and then never gets back on the feild b/c of the success of his replacement, best example being Tom Brady taking over for Drew Bledsoe.  Sometimes I think the Bengals are too loyal to players who have had previous success with this franchisse, maybe it's because they have not had a lot a players who have been that successfull with them in recent memory but the reality is they need do a better job of realizing when players (who may have earned a reputation early in there carreers) may not be as good as the players backing them up anymore.  Eventhough, Andy Dalton had a sub par performance yesterday I think the Bengals are better off at QB with him at the helm than they would be with Carson Palmer at the helm.  I truly beleive Carson is just a shell of what he once was and he did the Bengals a favor by not coming back and playing for this team.  If this team would do a better job of evaluating the players performance on the feild and at practice intstead of relying on name reconigtion and previous success who knows maybe Ryan Fitzpatric would be doing with the Bengals what he is doing with Bills this year.  Anyways to my point, eventhough I do not agree with the Cedric the Benson and I think he's actually a descent RB, not great but decent.  I think the team maybe actually be better off with Benard Scott in the backfeild, especially with the west coast offense if they utilize his skill set correctly.  Here's to hoping Benard Scott makes the most of his opportunies the next few weeks, has a few breakout performances, and the Bengals are once again better off because of it.
