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?

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.
