BENGALS trivia Question to pass time in the offseason (#12) ... answered

Bengals’ running backs.

From Benson the serviceable
To Dillon, more than able
And Rudi the plodder
They’ve been more than fodder.

Ickey the one-year wonder
And Brooks, who was no blunder
Their RB’s have been good
As we hope that they should.

Anyone who has been following the Bengals for the last 15 years has grown rather accustomed to the Bengals having a good RB who will rack up 1,000 yards. From Dillon, to Rudi, to Benson and the Law Firm, the Bengals have had a 1,000 yard rusher in 13 of the last 16 seasons.

But alas, this was not always the case.
One could not always count on the Bengals to produce a 1,000 yard RB.

When James Brooks ran for 1,087 yards in 1986, it was only the 3rd time in Bengals’ franchise history (3rd time in 19 seasons) that a Bengal Running Back hit the 1,000 mark.

Paul Robinson rushed for 1,023 yards in 1968
James Brooks rushed for 1,087 yards in 1986

But only 1 Bengal rushed for 1,000 yards in those 17 seasons between 1968 Robinson & 1986 Brooks.

Who was that Bengal?
