Those folks at CBS sportsline have been busy again, this time ranking the Bengals OT pairing of Andrew Whitworth and Andre Smith as the #2 'best' pairing in the league.

Are we guilty of 'underrating' Andre Smith a little ?

He mentioned Cook as one of the better pass-blocking C's in the league. I think this article is a little ridiculous to say the best pass-blockers are the best, and not take run-blocking into account. Either way however, Whitworth and Smith are a top three tandem and hopefully we can lock up Smith soon for the long-term.

^ I agree that the rating system is suspect. That said Whit and Andre are a top tandem, they just need to clean up the penalties...

Orlovsky has too much experience here. Manziel doesn't stand a chance.

Obviously I am biased, but yeah, I could see them as a top 5 tandem. I would like to see A. Smith locked up to a longer deal.

Considering his top five only contained three tandems, I can't be too impressed.

Smith impressed me with his play last year. He has come a long way since the day he was drafted. Definitely a top 3 tandem in the NFL.
