After brief flashes of how good he could be, Bengals RB Bernard Scott will have his best chance yet to show his ability as he will be one of the featured backs. Gone are the days of one back consistently getting 25 carries a game and in is a backfield-by-committee approach in which there will be a more equal distribution of carries between Scott and BenJarvus Green-Ellis.
Scott doesn’t have any idea how many carries he will get per game, but he does think the setup will work better.
Said Scott: “I think me and BenJarvus are going to be ready to handle how many carries they want to give us. I think it will be pretty even, but you never know.”
We currently have a 2:1 ratio for BJGE/Scott in total yardage but it may be more of a 60/40 or 55/45 split by the time the season starts. Scott did mention that Green-Ellis has a better than expected "wiggle" and has the ability to get outside, so if he can hold onto the lead back job, he will have RB3-type value.
