Hey everyone! I'm a regular poster at CincyJungle, and am looking forward to our Week 6 matchup. Please feel free to leave any questions for the Bengals below.
I'll also write a few of my questions about the Bills here that you can answer below for me:
How's Gilmore doing? I know he hasn't played this year yet but he had a solid rookie campaign. Dre Kirkpatrick on the Bengals still has the jury out on him, but he's steadily approaching bust status. Dre's not there yet, though.
Are there major regrets about drafting Marcell Dareus over A.J. Green, Patrick Peterson, Julio Jones, Aldon Smith, J.J. Watt, etc.? I'm sure there are at least minor regrets, but has Dareus been a good-enough player to justify his high draft status?
Despite Geno Smith's performance last night, I still think that E.J. Manuel has been the best QB out of the 2013 draft so far; he's been less up-and-down than Smith. At the time of the draft, the consensus feeling was that the Bills had made a massive reach. At the time, do you think Manuel would have fallen to anywhere in rounds 2-4? I personally think so. If so, is there even the slightest regret about that since he's the hopeful franchise QB? What I'm getting at is whether you'd risk it to take Manuel in round 2 or so, while being able to get someone like Jarvis Jones or Tyler Eifert in the first round?
How has Manny Lawson been? I'll be frank, I was shocked when I saw a team offer him a 4-year, $12-million deal after seeing him regress over the period of two years in Cincinnati. He had declined from starter to role player, and eventually even lost that limited role to an undrafted rookie. That doesn't translate to being bad as a Bill, though.
Geno Atkins is the consensus best defensive tackle in the NFL. Is Kyle Williams second-best? A few other guys like Wilfork, Ngata, Suh, and Fairley get more media hype.
