Do you guys think Atkins could push for some DPOTY votes? This article makes some good points. I know when we played you guys he was killing us. Don't think he got any sacks, but he still made some noise.

I think he could get some votes, but JJ Watt should win the award. Both had phenomenal seasons. Any other year, Geno wins DPOTY but JJ Watt had an all time great defensive season. Maybe best ever...

Yeah Watt's a lock, but Smith had a superb year. It's too bad he doesn't get the attention he deserves.

Was kind of ticked when Suh made first team all pro over Geno last year but this year Geno got first team. So he's starting to get noticed more...

Yeah he is, and in the game against the Texans they talked about him a lot so the media is starting to take notice. Like the article said, he doesn't play in a big city so it will be hard for him to get the exposure other guys get.

He might get a vote or 2 but overall I think it will go to Watt. I think Von Miller would get it over Geno too

Yeah like others have said, Geno had an amazing year but i don't think he will finish any higher than fourth behind Watt, Smith, and Miller.

Yup, 31 other teams are hoping the Bengals don't get an extension deal done
