Thanks for correcting me on that. I didn't realize their RB's had so many yards. So I thought what did Cinn do the last 3 years?:They've avg. 478 yards per year which is 419 less than KC's. What I've noticed however is that since Rudi took over the RB spot the receiving yards have decreased. The TE's have avg 392 each. The TE's have had some injury issues the last few years as well IIRC.The RBs have avearged 897 receiving yards each of the past four years. I'd say that's fairly significant. That's 556 more yards than Palmer threw to his RBs. If you added 556 yards to Palmer's total last year, he'd move from ranking 20th to ranking 16th.I'm not so sure. Look at KC. Very little impact from the recievers and the RB's play only a small role in the passing game yet Green is usually around 4000 yards and 22-24 TD's.
As for Pitts, they have one of the best RB's that can catch in Staley. For some reason they chose not to use him last year in the passing game.
As for the Maddox comment itself, I agree he was likely tapped out already.
So you're right. A bump in the RB/TE totals while maintaining the WR output and watch out!
