Brandon Mebane has been playing at an elite level all year.

His impact has more been in the run game, but he is also generating a lot of interior pass rush.


Yes was just coming in here to post this.

Beat me to it!! Very Happy

Probably the best interior pass rusher in the league.

Id prefer Geno in the Saints because we need any sort of pass rush, but Vince Wilfork is a better player, so is Ngata.

Love this photo of the Jaguars quadruple teaming Atkins:



In terms of what he is asked to do (shoot gaps and create negative plays against run and pass) it's hard to find anyone playing better. McCoy is really the only 4-3 DT with a case.

Ngata spends most of his time at DE and comparing Wilfork to Atkins is apples to oranges. They both play under the "DT" name, but one is a massive NT, the other a quick UT.

Agreed...but both are still DTs. Wilfork is a better DT than Geno, regardless of their body type.

That's an amazing shot. I'm not sure I've ever seen anything like it actually.

When Carlos Dunlap is not in the lineup, you pretty much just have to make sure to block Geno Atkins.

Week 1 (Without Dunlap) against the Ravens, Bengals had 3 sacks. Two of them came from Geno.

Week 2 (Without Dunlap) against the Browns, Bengals had 2 sacks.

Week 3 (With Dunlap) against the Redskins, Bengals had 5 sacks.

Week 3 (With Dunlap) against the Jags, Bengals had 6 sacks.

The Bengals D-Line works best when Geno and Dunlap are in the lineup, so teams can't just focus on one of them...

Geno is a beast. He was taking our O-Lineman to the woodshed last week.

He's what I hoped Alualu would be. Sad

Fletcher Cox was suppose to be raw, well he leads our DT's for snaps, and he threw Marshal Yanda around like a rag doll in the 2nd half. And he's getting double teamed alot.


and?


Sacks are the most overrated stat to compare players. I'm not suggesting Cox is better right now but there are still several players many listed already I would take over Geno.

Such as? Geno has more than sacks. He's been almost unblockable at times and is just a great player.

Figured the words "listed already" would have been enough but here you go anyways.

So he's behind Wilfork. Ngata plays 3-4 DE and doesn't spend enough time at NT to qualify, unless we want to count all 3-4 DEs. Which wouldn't make sense.

Gerald McCoy, Kyle Williams and Brandon Mebane stand out. The Bengals have been the worst team in the NFL against runs up the middle, allowing 5.86 YPC.
