It's hard to blame Corey Dillon.

This week the Bengals' star running back expressed his, um, displeasure with the current state of the franchise, and it's hard to disagree with anything he said. Not only do the Bengals have a woeful .279 winning percentage (24-62) during his tenure with the team — only the Browns and expansion Texans are worse over that span — but Dillon nonetheless has been a warrior for the team. If only he were on a good team, you might say. . . then people might know that Dillon has the third-most rushing yards in the NFL since 1999.

As it stands, the Bengals' sole ray of hope has chalked up nearly 3,800 rushing yards in his career -- if you count only games the Bengals have lost.
