Ask what most veteran fans think of Dillon and it likely ranges from appreciation to down right hatred. Some appreciate Dillon's efforts and personal successes during a very dark time in Bengals history. Others are thrilled he's gone simply because we don't have to hearing whining every week. I'm the latter.
Sure, he rushed for a lot of yards. But as soon as he left, the Bengals successes began. There are a lot of variables there to realistically conclude Dillon's exit from Cincinnati helped the team become winners, obviously. But this team is better without him (think: locker-room). In the end, we got Madieu Williams after the Bengals traded for a second round draft pick. Both sides came away better afterwards.
