That's what people said about Arlen Harris moving up to #2 on the depth chart after his 34 carry 90 yard 3 TD effort. The next week he got 9 yards, almost got his QB killed by not picking up the blitz, and is firmly in control of the #3 RB spot once Gordon is a go.

Rudi is a good fill-in when Dillon can't go, but if Cincy wants to trade him or get anything of value back, it's in their best interest to let Corey remain the starter if he is healthy.

I don't think Rudi has displaced him yet.

No I don't see any reason to think that the Bengals wouldn't rather play a back who has done nothing this year, demands to be traded, has a strained Labia, and can't even drive!

Lots of these 'replacement backs' come in and have a good game. They make good plays based on their history for that reason alone. The D's don't generally know much about them, and usually do not game plan to stop them. They probably were more worried about Kitna Johnson and Warrick than Rudi Johnson. Some of these replacement backs do become solid plays the rest of the year, but not many take the job away from a proven starter. Dillon does have some external baggage to deal with currently which complicates his situation a bit, but I don't see it being enough to lose his job over.

He scored his TD's late, and got a huge amount of carries. How ofrten do you expect a Bengal RB to get 40 carries? Next week ( or soon after) when the Bengals are down big and have to abort the run, it isn't going to matter much who is running the ball.

Brandon Bennett has spelled Dillon effectively in past years. there is even Bengal history of Dillon's replacement performing decently. If Dillon can't play for a week or 2 and Rudi bnusts 150 and 2 TD's then there might be an issue. Right now, I don't think there is that much of an issue.

Strained labia! I love it!

Call me silly, but how much freakin' game planning does it take to tackle the RB? Besides, Dillon has been out for a few games and Rudi has played well as his replacement. If Capers didn't game plan to stop Johnson, then he is an idiot.

How likely do y'all think it is that they trade Dillon away after this year. They did it with Takeo, why not their offensive leader? He's becoming a cancer to the team more than anything.

Uh... I think what you meant to say was they were worried about Kitna and Chad Johnson. You meant Chad Johnson right? He is not only the #1 wr on the bengals but is also a top 5 wr in the league. Whenever a team is playing the bengals, the first player they look to contain is Chad Johnson not Warrick... Hands down
