Alexander will be in Seattle or Miami. That's it. Wait, I think I just woke Al Davis up...
This offense will have no problems if Palmer reaches his expectations, regardless of what athletic able-bodied player is in the backfield with him. Of course I guess it might help that Perry, the style back Marvin wants, will be back there. I've had to think about this for a while, and I've decided that, if we have to, we shouldn't be afraid to hand it over to Perry. Marvin has consistently said that he is "our guy" and "better than even we expected." Now it may be time for him to put some money on that statement and start him. If the Bengals do finish last in the AFC North, or "the Central," or even the ACC, it will be because of the defense. Ironic because ML is a defensive coach, but this happens a lot (See Mr. Dungy).
I would be happy to see Alexander in the backfield, who wouldn't? I'm not sure if it makes sense though. And the rumors that he "avoids contact whenever possible" only makes me like him more. He's preserving his body to keep him from being a Dickerson/Ricky Williams/etc. That's intelligent.
