The Dearly Departed, Week 11


During free agency ’08, the Bengals lost three players — Landon Johnson, Madieu Williams and Justin Smith — and in their final cuts released fan favorites Rudi Johnson and Willie Anderson, as well as Deltha O’Neal and Ahmad Brooks. So, how did this year’s crop of ex-Bengals fare in week 11?

  • Madieu had just 1 tackle in Minnesota’s loss to Tampa Bay, bringing his season totals up to 15 tackles, a pick and a pass defensed.
  • Willie Anderson did not play in Baltimore’s loss to the New York Giants. He has appeared in 8 Ravens games (with 5 starts) this season.
  • Rudi Johnson had 5 carries for 5 yards, and 1 reception for 5 yards, as Detroit lost yet again. On the year, that gives him 69/217/1 on the ground and 11/89/1 through the air, with 1 fumble.
  • Deltha O’Neal had 3 tackles in New England’s overtime loss to the Jets. On the year, he has 23 tackles, 4 passes defensed and 3 picks.
  • Landon had no stats against the Lions. He has 11 tackles for the year.
  • Justin Smith had 3 tackles as the 49ers got Mike Singletary his first win as an NFL head coach. Justin has 47 tackles, 3 sacks, a FF and an INT for the year. Ahmad has been inactive all season.
