Cincinnati Bengals’ Geno Atkins named top-10 underrated player in the NFL

Last week, I provided my annual list of the 10 most overrated players in the NFL. As expected, it caused an uproar, mostly from people who can’t take off their team-colored glasses and deal with the truth. For a good time, read the “Comments” section below the article; it’s pure gold and classic examples of denial. In the spirit of showing that it’s not all negative on...

Photo: Former Georgia Star Geno Atkins Honored On Mural Outside Bulldogs’ Defensive Line Meeting Room

Before Geno Atkins became an All-Pro defensive lineman for the Cincinnati Bengals, he starred at Georgia.  During his time in Athens (2007-09), Atkins totaled 33 sacks, including 15 as a sophomore and 10.5 as a senior. The 6-foot-1, 303-pound defensive tackle was also named a first-team All-SEC player in 2008.  Atkins is a player all Georgia players should attempt to emulate. The...

AFC Exec Calls Aaron Donald Best D-Lineman in 10 Years

var ACE_AR = {Site: '898551', Size: '468060', CallType: 'IFRAME'}; Geno Atkins tore his ACL at the end of October 2013 and had surgery roughly three weeks later.

Cincinnati Bengals: Bye week evaluation

  The Cincinnati Bengals had a late bye week this season, and I think that is the best thing they could’ve asked for at this point. Sitting at 7-4 and atop the AFC North with five games left, the Bengals are in the best position they could ask for. However, injuries have been adding up on defense and the bye could not have come at a better time for them. After winning four in...

Bengals adapt to life without Atkins

Geno Atkins was in the Bengals locker room briefly on Wednesday, moving slowly on crutches. He declined to answer questions about his torn knee ligament as he headed home. Still too painful to discuss. The Bengals (6-3) will try to maintain their lead in the AFC North without their best defensive lineman. Atkins, an All-Pro tackle last season, leads the team with six sacks. They...

Report: Geno Atkins tears ACL, done for the season

The Cincinnati Bengals suffered a pretty humiliating defeat on Thursday night as they fell to the Miami Dolphins 22-20 in overtime. Any time you lose a game on the road thanks to a safety, it’s pretty fair to say it will be a rough flight home. But things just got even worse after the game. Bengals All-Pro defensive tackle Geno Atkins left the game with a knee injury and team officials...

Looking Glass Game: Geno Atkins

I am breaking away from the pattern just a little bit with this one. I was tempted to pass on Geno in this series because there just is not a very deep tradition of badass tackles. I couldn’t get to five names (as in previous polls) before I was scratching at the bottom of the barrel. Really there is only one name worthy of comparison in the middle of the defensive line.
