Catching the Run

3 of 3

The argument during last year’s off-season was made against Scott taking the reins from Benson, and as we seem to be rehashing it again in so many different words, perhaps his time should be cut short. Unfortunately, Scott will probably be afforded one more year as the hands on his contractual clock edge closer to midnight. Nonetheless others are starting to question his contributions to the team as a recent article appearing in Pro Football Focus stated:

"Still with the team, [Bernard Scott] had maintained a healthy yards per carry average until more was asked out of him last year. You wouldn’t want him carrying the load, but he’s proved a useful change-of-pace back with some special team’s value though you doubt he’ll ever be anything more."

No argument here.
