    I think Justin Smith has been one of the most consistent defensive linemen in the NFL over the past several years, and Robert Geathers is getting paid fairly if you compare his salary to the other defensive linemen in the NFL. The defensive tackles and outside linebackers, on the other hand, are where I'd like to see some improvements. They may have some solid, average veterans, but what they need are play-makers.

    Justin is good, but he's not a difference maker. He isn't worth franchise-tag money. For a top 10 pick, he hasn't produced as well as he should have.

    Geathers has potential to be pretty good. I like him.

    The Bengals still need that one player that other teams fear. The Bengals haven't had that in years. Was the last guy David Fulcher?

    I'd say the last one was T. Spikes... Too bad he might as well have been the only man out there on defense...

    Justin Smith isn't a playmaker. Anyone hear his name called one time Sunday? You don't make 8 plus million and go whole games without making a single play.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    I agree that Justin Smith isn't exactly a play-maker, and although he's over-paid, I don't think the $1M-$2M or so he's being over-paid is costing the Bengals any games. My point is that he's consistent and helping the Bengals more than he's hurting them. I think the hope going into the season was that Justin Smith would be a rent-a-player while Frostee Rucker emerges as a starter. If Rucker can't rise to the occasion, then they'll sign Smith to an extension (or franchise tag him again) and look to the draft for more help.

    I keep hearing that the draft is going to be utilized to fix our d-line... Hmmmm...

    Maybe after a few more running backs.
