    Congrats to BJGE for going over 1000 yards on a 40 yard burst, setting up your team for 1st and goal and finishing that opening drive with a TD. 

    All that with 3 starting OL down for the year.  Very impressive.  I wish we used him in the SB.

    Babe has just been moved to the watch ward on the east wing.

     



    if u could've won with him bellichick would have run him more ie: he was not effective

    i still don't get how u can go on one thread and tell anyone alive Bellichick is the "greatest" head coach ever and then on another thread say he is over ruled by his own QB and doesn't know how and when to use the run

    must be me...

    your turn babe



    I also don't understand how he can run around saying Bill Belichick is the "greatest GM of all time"   when he didn't resign Benny for cheap dollars. So not only is he saying BB is a terrible coach and blew his chance at a Super Bowl victory, but he also lost out on Benny.

    Or could it be that Benny is nothing special...no reason to take the ball out of your qb's hands and no reason to go out of your way to resign?

    Is that what this thread is about...? Like all the other Benny threads...?  So..... Babe thinks Benny sux.  Jintsy just dinks around trying to take sides against Scully... Babe would rather take sides with juvenile dink weed of a troll than acquiesce to an obvious fact of bjge talent.... . Fascinating.

    Of course correct me if wrong.

    Re: Benny Watch

    Benny deserves kudos for stronger performances in the past four weeks after some weak performances earlier in the season. But it's a myth that the Bengals offensive line is poor.  In fact, they are rated one of the better lines in the league this year.  They had injuries, but the back-ups have turned out to be better than the projected starters.  

     

    Here's what ESPN is saying:

    Kyle Cook, the Bengals' starting center, suffered a high-ankle sprain in the preseason and has yet to play one snap in the regular season. Left guard Travelle Wharton, the team's first free-agent signing, went down with a season-ending knee injury on the opening series of the preseason opener. 

    Instead of making excuses, the Bengals filled those voids and put together one of the top offensive lines in the NFL this season. According to Pro Football Focus, the Bengals have the fourth-best offensive line in the league, trailing only the 49ers, Patriots and Saints. Cincinnati's line is rated the second-best in pass protection and 16th in run blocking. 

     

    Here's Pete Prisco:

    One of the most improved units in the NFL the past month has to be the Cincinnati Bengals'offensive line.

    Some of that has to do with the insertion of rookie center Trevor Robinson, who is a clear upgrade over Jeff Faine. But the real reason is the play of right tackle Andre Smith.

    He has become a real force in the run game, and he's improved greatly in pass protection. The former first-round pick has been known more for being out of shape than his work on the field, but he has quietly elevated his game to a Pro Bowl level.

     

    And this also from ESPN:

     

    It took 10 games for the Cincinnati Bengals to get running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis over 100 yards. Now, he's gone over that mark in back-to-back weeks for the first time of his career. 

    Green-Ellis produced a season-high 129 yards rushing last Sunday, which included two of the longest runs of his career (48 and 39 yards). 

    So, what's the reason behind the Bengals' improved run game? The offensive line.

    According to ESPN Stats & Information, Green-Ellis rushed for 96 yards before contact against the Raiders, his highest total of the season. That shows how much the blocking up front has opened clear running lanes for Green-Ellis. 

    In his previous 10 games, Green-Ellis had gained over 96 rushing yards total (before and after contact) just once. This is the most yards before contact for Green-Ellis since the start of the 2009 season.

    Funny stuff. I never said Benny sux. But then facts are oooooh so hard to retain for too many people around here. I said he's a good backup and a so so starter.

    And since he has yet to even reach the NFL average in ypc, my assessment is spot on.



    That's picking around stats and sh!t.  The guy is good.  Do you need stats to see it ?  he was trained by  BBs system... Ball security,  get upfield.   C'mon babe, and don't ever take sides with jintsy the dink please.

    In response to RockScully's comment:

    Congratulations to Benny for attaining 1000 yards with still 2 games to go. This proves that demeaning his 1000 yard season in 2010 doesn't make sens, when the argument centered around Brady being the reason as to why Benny could even get 1000 yards.

    Game, set and match for those who are paying attention.

    Babe has now been moved to the far east wing where the authorities await.

    The articles I quoted are all recent (from the past few weeks). The article you quote Rusty is from the preseason, all the way back in August, before any games had been played and before anyone really could tell how the substitute linemen would pan out.

    He's getting some real room to run and he's gone up against some poor run defensive teams. I'll give him enough credit to call him average - it's what I've always called him, but anything more than that is a major stretch. The guy isn't quick, fast or elusive - he doesn't have great tackle breaking ability and he is a non factor in the passing game. I think he runs hard and low, but if the play isn't blocked almonst perfectly he goes nowhere (and that is too hard to do...block it perfect).  I like Benny's ability to set up blocks and time things right - he's got good vision, but despite all that he just isn't very talented. I'll take a back that can do things a bit on his own any day over a guy that relies so much on having the play blocked to perfection.

    Re: Benny Watch

    I only follwed some of the game but what I saw was a Cinci team that got 4 yards on BJGE run then went to play action (and the Eagles knew it)...got an incomplete and then were forced to pass on 3rd down and Eagles brought the house.

    Reminds me a bit of Pats predictability in some games PRIOR to this year.


    If you get 4-5 yards running on 1rst down , try actually running on 2nd down too sometimes...maybe the next play action WILL work...see this years Pats!!
