  • What ever happened to...

    Chris Perry? He was a Heisman canidate almost amassing 2,000 total yards his last year at Michigan and getting 19 rushing tds... i know he was the backup at cincy but what happened to him now? i mean with college numbers like those you would think he would have a pretty decent nfl career...

      His problem is he has been hurt... and he is behind a guy who has been a consistent runner for 3 or 4 years... that will keep you in the quite.. he is the third down runningback for them if im not mistaken though

        He also hasn't had a chance to be a feature back with Johnson there.

          He is a MAJOR weapon for us when healthy, he's just never healthy. In '05 he was a big time threat out of the backfield for us but then he started the season on PUP last year then broke his leg 6 games later and should start the season the PUP this year as well.

          He's a VERY good reciever out of the backfield, he hasn't run much in our offense.

          In '05 he had 51 receptions for 328 yards and had two long ones that were called back.

            It's kind of like what happened to Larry Johnson when he was drafted. He had Holmes in his way, but he got injured and LJ got all the Carries and so on and so forth.

              It's not really because of Rudi that he hasn't done much, purely injuries.

              Marvin actually prefers a 2 back system it's just that the last few years Perry can't stay healthy so he drafted Irons and then bam he gets hurt. The offense loves having him out there because it opens it up even more (he's sort of like a TE in our offense at times in terms of where he gets the ball at and how he's used in the passing game).

                Chris Perry is the Dan Cody of the Bengals.

                So new rule, NBA: Unless you have a root canal at halftime, SHUT UP AND PLAY!

                  Haha, QFT.

                  Well, Perry is actually like an ironman compared to Cody... That's pretty bad.

                    Every year I have high hopes for Cody and every year he gets hurt. A piece of me dies every year come training camp when that news is released.

                        If he was healthy I was hoping the Giants could pick him up in a trade. Thought he would be the perfect compliment to Jacobs

                          It really is a LJ-type situation. Hopefully he'll get an opportunity to show what he can do sometime.

                            When he's healthy, yes. He'll probably start out on the PUP and they'll ease him back in when he's completely ready. Honestly, I'm not counting on him being healthy at all, which is unfortunate.

                            People keep saying it's a LJ situation but it's really not. In '05 when he was healthy for a better part of the year he had 51 rushes and 61 catches, the PT is there for him if he's healthy. We actually need him regardless of Rudi's health, a 2 back system really helps our offense.

                              well he might become an important player this year. The Bengals drafted Irons cuz they thought Rudi was wearing down and not offering enough explosion and didnt think they could count on Perry to bring that based on what he had done so far (mostly get injured)...but with Irons back to the season, Perry once again has a chance to play a major role and if he can stay healthy hes got a great opportunity in front of him. Could he be one of this years breakout players? I could see it
