This interesting article on 'Pro Football Focus' suggests Geno is THE gold standard prototype at his position......

I certainly wouldn't trade him for anyone else at that position, even the guy playing a few hundred miles north of Cincy.






(that's Suh if you couldn't figure it out).

I love Geno, but if Suh stops acting like an idiot, I'd make that trade i a heartbeat.

I wouldn't. Suh was great his rookie year. But last year, when everyone saw him coming, he was pretty average. His numbers dropped off big time, and for a large part of the season he wasn't a big difference maker.

Give me Geno. Less hype, less entitlement, less mental problems. With Geno i see a 10 year all pro. With Suh i see a sometimes dominant, sometimes average player who battles his motor and work ethic all career. No thanks.

I'd like to see Geno get a 5-6 year extension after this season. He should anchor our defense the rest of this decade

While I too wouldn't make that trade, I could see Suh thriving in our system under Zimmer and Marvin. Suh is exactly the type of player we get the most out of. Sims and Geno both had "motor" concerns coming out of college and I haven't seen it since either got here.

Absolutely agree with 'J''s comments regarding Suh and Detroit. They were highly touted as having the best D-Line in football, but when you look at their play, they just couldn't stop the run.

I'd keep Geno over Suh as well; and agree that we should get him signed-up long term real quick.

Who gets the credit for scouting and drafting Geno, Zimmer or Marvin ?

Dont count on it man. Bengals are never rarely that highly. They did start to recognize Whitworth and Hall at least..

I think I read somewhere before the draft that Zim was jumping on the table in the war room about Geno before the pick was made. I'd give him the credit.

I can see it. Geno has such a great motor and plays with such great leverage that it makes him very hard to block. Can't wait to see him line up with Still on the inside.
