I don't think anyone nis saying they guarantee he will be a big help here. All we are saying is that he has potential.
Agreed. Low risk and possible high reward with Maybin. I hope this the beginning of signing guys.

He probably averaged 315 carries a season to get there. His YPC was near the bottom of starting running backs, he offered virtually nothing in the pass game, he had no big play ability, and he had problems holding on to the ball. The guy was an average back.
Yet he was the only guy who came to play in our playoff game against the Jets. 169 yards and a TD on 21 carries.

Take it from experience; you cannot win this arguement.

The 3 consecutive years Ced rushed for over 1,000 yards here only 4 other RBs in the NFL were able to do the same and their names are:

Ray Rice
Steven Jackson
Chris Johnson
MoJo Drew

But folks will tell you it is "no big feat" or "Featured RBs should run for 1000 yards" or maybe even "mediocre at best"

Default Aaron Maybin: Secret Superstar

https://www.profootballfocus.com/blo...new-york-jets/ From what I have read, Aaron is a great "3rd and long pass rush specialist". Buffalo didn't know how to use him (and certainly expected much more out of a #11 Overall draft pick), and the Jets D ****** so bad last year that 3rd and long situations simply didn't happen. If we expect him to be one of our starting LBs, then we're gonna be terribly disappointed. However, if we accept him for what he is (a 3rd down sack/strip specialist), there's reason to believe that the 24 year old will thrive for us in this role.

Pretty mediocre if you ask me.

Sounds like you're just really reaching to to go out of your way and find some reason to bash Gruden. Go away troll.

Rivers was never the same after being blindsided by Hines Ward,. Rey was a 2nd rounder never clicked and Taylor mays was essentially a 7th rounder to us. i wouldnt mind if we cut mays. he will probably come to NE and be a star. you can go ahead and pick and choose players all you want but the fact is, is that Zim has been successful here at getting the most out of players.. Geno Atkins anyone?

Has ANYONE ever said that about Gruden?.... I really don't think the offense will ever be enough to win playoff games with him at OC. It seems like he's the anti-Zimmer. He has players getting dragged down to below their potential.

Just saw that and realized I needed to say something about Gruden... granted it's already been said before many times on this forum, I am sure.
Zim has been here five years and Gruden has been here 2 years. What vets has Gruden been given to upgrade the team on offense?

Tate?
Lee?
Faine?

Green Ellis is only one I can think of right now.

I saw major improvement with Sanu as the year went on and Gruden has made a rookie and second year QB look good for a young QB. Let's see if he can take the offense to the next level in 2013. Let's see if Mike Brown gives him more potential weapons to do so before we throw him under the bus..

Then why were only 5 RBs in the NFL able to do it?

A quick list of some that didn't:

Adrian Peterson
Marshawn Lynch
Willis McGahee
Reggie Bush
Darren Sproles
Matt Forte

Good thing is he could always overachieve and do good. Im sure Reggie Nelson was told he wasnt gonna be a starter at some point

Is it really fair to list Peterson who got injured?

I still remember checking the Jags board after that trade and they were thrilled to get David Jones and even more excited to get rid of their "bust".

I hope Maybin can produce, I wouldn't be surprised if he's a camp causality though

He had 970 in 12 games, it's safe to say he would have broken 1,000.

Point is folks are quick to point to how terrible Ced was here; when in fact he provided us with production and durability that was very rare during his tenure.

Average players have good games occasionally. If they didn't they wouldn't be average, they'd be bad.

Same with Matt Forte.

Same as Frank Gore.

Arian Foster is missing from that list.... that would be 6...

McGahee only played 10 games,

Marshawn Lynch is only 2 years into his revival.

Sproles? LOL how did he make the list of examples?

Bush.... see Sproles

It CAN happen tho. Look at Ahmad Brooks....nothing here near pro bowler with SAN FRAN.

The light does metaphorically go on for some guys on another team.....Look at Reggie.

He didn't stay healthy, not to mention he had 4 consecutive 1,200+ yard 10 TD seasons before he got injured. Oh and he was only 9 yards shy of owing the record for most rushing yards in a season.

So you agree all those folks didn't do it.

By the way Foster was in College in 2009 so that is why he is "missing"

No he wasn't. He played in 6 games with the Texans.

6 sacks in 13 games is pretty solid, sounds more like he should go the ahmad brooks route, IE situational pass rusher.

And then got 9 yards shy of the NFL rushing record the next year after an ACL tear. Lets not be comparing Benson's accomplishments against Peterson's. That's when it just starts getting ridiculous.

The point is, in Benson's 4 years in Cincinnati, he averaged 3.77ypc. Nothing else matters. That's absolutely mediocre at best.

Stevan Ridley had 1263 yards in 2012... CJ Spiller had 1244 yards in 2012... does that mean that Stevan Ridley is more impressive than CJ Spiller? Of course not, because while Ridley had a decent 4.4ypc, Spiller had an immense 6.0ypc. That means it took Ridley 83 more carries to get 19 more yards rushing.

Foster got 1400+ yards, but it was at 4.1ypc and 351 carries. It's not as impressive or productive if you get a high yardage total just by amassing a ton of carries.

Season total yards don't matter. It's about ypc, because most RBs if given the opportunity to run it 300 times like Benson did, will get 1,000+ yards. You can get 1,000 yards on 3.3ypc with 300 carries. It's not an impressive feat.. if you ask why isn't it done more often then? Because most teams aren't idiotic enough to run it off right tackle for 3-4 yards on 1st and 2nd down, 300 times a season.... over and over and over. Bob Bratkowski's offense was.

But he did not rush for 3 consective 1000 yard season during the timeframe as Ced did during his tenure here.

I agree AP is a beast. Don't know what that has to do with what Ced did for us while he was here.
