After a 2 year Hiatus...Hobson gets to use his favorite phrase once again... don't you just love our new "bell cow" running back.... ding dong....

"Well, it ain't braggin' if it's true
Yes sir, yes sir
It ain't braggin' if it's true
Muhammad Ali said that
Back when he was a young man
Back when he was Cassius Clay
Before he fought too many fights
And left his brain inside the ring"

It seems like it was Mike Brown who single-handedly brought that term back into the NFL vernacular. Now we have talk of...

- bell cow quarterbacks

- bell cow running backs

- bell cow wide receivers

- bell cow kickers

And of course the Brown family treats the franchise as a...

- cash cow

It's a veritable bovine extravaganza! Let's start collecting the quotes and milk this topic for all its worth.

Edit: See newer thread for ongoing updates of Hobson's bell-cow usage:

Ask not for whom the bell-cow lows.
It lows for thee.


-Geoff Hobs-Donne

It only took a few minutes to find the following examples. It's a cryin' shame that Bengals.com revamped their website. The archive only goes back a few years now. Who knows how many examples would have turned up otherwise?

"Cedric Benson doesn't turn 27 until the last week of the season and the Bengals new bell cow of a running back has been looking like a coltish yearling kicking around the Bengals on-field workouts."
--http://www.bengals.com/news/article-1/work-force/d2c7c2c4-d85d-4589-ac63-ec34612c3981

"So, since they're going to draft at least one running back, they really don't need a bell cow veteran, but they do need an experienced guy. Maybe a Kevin Jones or DeShaun Foster."
--http://www.bengals.com/news/hobson-online/article-1/hobsons-choice-looking-around-/b6df2d5b-a2ba-4f19-8142-743e4959e1c5

"But at 5-6, he can't be your bread-and-butter guy and I don't know how much you can pay a guy like that and still get a bell cow. Maybe you overpay Sproles and draft your complementary running back. The thing about Sproles is the punt and kick return factor, a spot where the Bengals have been damn near negligent in the draft. It can no longer be ignored."
--http://www.bengals.com/news/hobson-online/article-1/hobsons-choice-raid-second-tier/79322243-556c-4ac6-beba-e6246aed62cc

"The problem is that while receiver is the hottest priority, the club believes the kind of big, bell cow back isn't around very often after the second round. Names like Jamaal Charles of Texas (5-11, 200) and Chris Johnson of East Carolina (5-11, 197) bubble up at No. 46."
--http://www.bengals.com/news/article-1/offense-to-be-taken/A7AAEFEA-3AF6-4D11-92DC-38448E1B2020

"Throw in more physical questions to the bell cow Rudi Johnson and even head coach Herman Edwards of the back-rich Chiefs says, "The Bengals need to get one. We've got to get one, too. I've got two hurt running backs. I don't know what's going to happen."
-http://www.bengals.com/news/article-1/backed-up-at-combine/F1C4DE84-6EC0-4965-AA3E-D30635C5872B

"Johnson shrugs at this knock-on-wood durability. Since the Corey Dillon trade before the 2004 season, Johnson hasn't missed a snap as the Bengals' Bell Cow Back."
