For those of you who thought Marv Lewis would help Dillon's stats, here is how things are starting out:

Dillon cranked out 1,311 yards, but his inability to punch the ball into the end zone in critical situations has the club exploring goal-line options. (Chick Ludwig/TSN)

Fantasy Spin: It seemed that every other week, Dillon had a chance to put the Bengals on top, but he would get stopped at the goal line. While a situational back could help Cincinnati get into the end zone, it won't help Dillon's fantasy value. Drop him a spot or two in your preseason rankings if the team finds a back who can finish those two-yard touchdown runs.


One of the biggest knocks on Dillon throughout his career was a lack of touchdowns. This will definitely not help and bears watching. Do you think he is still a second round (top 20 overall) pick?

This shouldn't be a "knock" on Corey Dillon, but on the Bungles.
They simply do not have the line to open up a hole when things get really tuff in the red zone.
Dillon's fine.
A "situational" back is not needed.
See what Cincy does about it's offensive line and coaching staff this off-season before you "drop him a spot or two".
Dillon will be as good as Cincy allows him to be.
My 2 cents.

I agree with the weasel. The organization just hasn't commited itself to winning. they don't have the tallent in the trenches to let him shine. I am not a big Dillon fan, but he would do better to jump ship. Plenty of better teams need him and would revitalize his career.

PS How do I add those little emotion guys to my posts?

Speaking of which ...
I was shocked 8-o shocked! when Dillon re-upped with Cincinnati 2 years ago.
I felt he was as good as gone to the Seattle Seahawks (played ball in Wash and this was the Spring pre-Shawn Alexander).
Corey Dillon - IMO - could be a major, major, major star with most any other team.
Set the all-time, single-game rushing record! And that was with The Bengals!!!
I can't believe it was for the money. The Bengals are notoriously cheap.
I can't believe it was for Ohio (he's from Washington!).
A total mystery to me.

yeah, i couldnt believe he re-signed with them either.

I thought he was good as gone as well.

i still cant believe he puts up the numbers he does, while playing for the bungles.

I dunno if you guys recall it, but earlier this season he was saying he cant take it anymore and would retire early rather than keep playing bungle style football. Its the frustration that worries me not the fact he would go and retire early.

Does make you wonder how big a star he would be on a different team.

Here's a good 4: The Redskins, 49ers, Bucs and Giants.
If he'd signed with any of these teams a few years ago he'd be a huge star.
For (probably) more money.
And wouldn't have to work out in a fungus infested weight room.
I still don't get it.
