Return of the Dillon

New, comment

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.

But how will fans react with the hated Dillon coming back?
