    I don’t have a problem with Ced. I have a problem with the way they’ve been using him. Benson would be best as a closer type, something like Jerome Bettis was in Pittsburgh, racking up yardage in the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, the Bengals used Benson at the expense of Bernard Scott last year, and I think Scott’s performance warrants more touches. It would also be nice to see Benson protect the football better in 2011. He had too many fumbles last year.

    Nate, I do think Scott is exciting, but I also think the fact the Bengals tried to go back to passing the ball more with a terrible playbook hurt more. When the Bengals last one the division, they did it on Benson’s back and he more than handled the load.
