Default Dillon ends on a loud note

Corey Dillon ended the game today by throwing his eqipment into the stands. He told an ESPN reporter he is looking for a new team, nothing against the Bengals, its just a business decision.

Gee, who would have seen this coming.
I would have never guessed, I think it all comes down to a guy named Rudi Johnson.

He emerged, only because Dillon screwed himself over by missing games.

Rudi Johnson exactly. Dillons going to get traded away, while Rudi and the Bengals get better and better under Lewis without his distractions.

If I were Mike Brown and the Bengals, I do my damnedest to get him to Detroit, where losing for the next two years seems likely, or Arizona, who has taken over the mantle of NFL Embarrassment from Cincy. And if those two won't take him, send him to San Diego, where he'd ride the pine, or Oakland, whose losery isn't likely to stop next year.

Or, they could work a deal with the CFL, and send him to Canada..

Anything to completely shaft such a complete absolute asshole.

Dave,

I like all your ideas but here is one that is better and more likely:

Send him to Dallas where if he pulls that mess Parcells will put a foot so far up his a$$ that they will have to call a surgeon to remove it.

Problem is that if he has any brains at all he will act fine in Dallas, play well on a winning team, and gain noteriety he never had in Cinci. Bill is a master coach and would never let that happen.

What would the Chargers want with Corey Dillon when they have LaDainian Tomlinson (and come April, Eli Manning as well)? Besides Detroit, Washington is another definite possibility as to where Dillon could end up (Trung Canidate and Ladell Betts are clearly not the answer at running back for the Redskins, and doubt if Daniel Snyder would be concerned about how Dillon's obviously less-than-team-oriented attitude might affect the locker room).

Anthony, as far as the Chragers go, I think Dave was being facetious, illustrating his fantasy of Dillon being punished (he'd be on the bench AND playing for another loser).

But how long will the Chargers remain losers with Eli Manning at quarterback? His brother went 13-3 in only his second year in the NFL, if that's any guide.

I would like to see Dillon land in New England or Dallas, both winning teams who lack good running games.

New England doesn't seem a likely place for Dillon, Marc. The staff up here hate quitters, and there's little doubt that Dillon routinely quits if he doesn't immediately see a hole. Maybe it was a Cincy thing, but too often his quitting at the goal line made ESPN highlight reels. Likely there are more such things on coach's tapes. Meanwhile, Parcells doesn't like the attitude or quitting either. Both will give a look, but I think he stands a better chance in Dallas...

All of this requires that a)Cincy cuts him or b)Cincy trades him. He's under contract. All his blustering does nothing to relieve him of his responsibility to show up for work. Don't forget, Duce Staley is a real life free agent, and while he did hold out, he returned to the team and kept his mouth shut while being the #2 and sometimes #3 back in his contract year. I think Staley finds a home before Dillon, and that home might just be one of the two places you mention above.

Dave

I don't think NE has a weak running game.
And they certainly don't need a loser like Dillon to crowd up the backfield.

Send Dillon to SD where he can ride pine, thats the best Idea I have heard thus far.

Seeing Dillon go to the Redskins would be a bitter irony indeed, been as he has already expressed a desire to play for their most heated rivals, the Cowboys!

Betcha didn't think of that angle.

I dont think the Chargers will Draft Eli they already have a capeable quarterback in Drew brees, he just needs a few good people surrounding him.

I forsee Washington using their first rounder on a running back. They have the 5th pick and could definetley grab Chris Perry or Steven Jackson with that pick. They could also take the route of trading that pick for an established NFL RB. Eithe way Washington will have a running game next year and it will be a key component to them winning in 2004.

Gee, Alex, what gives you that idea? Wouldn't have anything to do with Gibbs and Bugel, together again, now would it?

I could see Dillon in Washington now, where it didn't seem entirely rational when Anthony mentioned it. However, if the 'Skins don't try to get either Robert Gallery, T, Iowa (maybe a mild stretch at seven) or Shawn Andrews, T, Arkansas, (no stretch at all) I'd be a bit surprised.

Whether or not the Skins can win in the sudden Amazing Coaches division in 2004, I think, is a 50-50 proposition.

Should be fun to watch. Parcells vs Gibbs returns to the marquee matchups. Crap, just typing that sent a shiver up my spine...
