    Great signing for Cincy, has alot of upside and plays hard...If Sims shows his potential then watch out, you might have something inside.

      Yeah the next few years should prove interesting. And if all else fails next years draft is loaded with DT talent

        I know hindsight is a b*tch, but I just didn't understand signing Willie long term at his age and letting the top pick in the second round (Steinbach) walk. I know at the time we probably didn't have the replacement there for Willie, but looking at it now, you can never error on sticking with productive youth. Steinbach could play across the line (including center). We also wouldn't be sitting here wondering how to get both Willie and Andrews on the line or who's going to be sitting out.

        As much as I love Willie and what he has given to the Bengals, it just wasn't a smart business move. I know that is arguable, but that is my opinion on it. I didn't like it then and I don't like it now. However, in the grand scheme of things, this is what we have to deal with, so no big deal I suppose.

        Yeeeeah Peko !!! (Poor attempt at staying on topic)

The only time he really gets abused IMO is when he doesn't seem to communicate the scheme right or he steps wrong. I think we are placing a lot of the blame on him when it wasn't rly his fault from a physical standpoint most of the time. Plus, with all the different groups we had in there its hard to develop a chemistry.
          As much as anything, the chemistry point comes into play. With that 2005 line they played basically every snap at the same position and they were all vets. The chemistry was unbelievable. It'll be hard to see that again. With that said, next year I'd really like to see us draft a center. That's the one spot on offense we really need to upgrade at. The run defense has taken a dump ever since Ghiaciuc stepped in.

          If Sims can pan out... We might actually turn into a defensive minded team (thank god). It's based a lot on potential though. Geathers/Peko/Joseph/Hall have already shown considerable flashes of it at least.

            Agree that the defense has a TON of potential and I'm hoping that Zimmer is just the person to get the players to "realize" that potential and have it translate onto the field. If that happens and the defense is in the top half of the league, I would bet a LARGE amount of cash that the Bengals are back in the playoffs !!!

            Also agree that the Center position has to be addressed in the next draft and would like to see it done on day one. No more of drafting in the laste rounds and hope they can blossom into a starter. GO GET YOUR GUY !!!

              I agree the C position must be addressed IF Ghiaciuc doesn't step it up this season.

                A center on day 1! Yikes! Usually Centers can be had on day 2 because they arent usually a spot that people search for in high rounds. Also the C draft class could be weak and stretching on the first day to get a guy that is 2nd day caliber would be weak. Depending on how the year goes, we may be searching for a RB and another DT on day 1. I would like for us to be searching for another LB and depth at our CB on day one next year. I think that is the best case scenario for next year. If we are searching for a LB and CB depth then we did all the right things this year. C's can be snagged in later rounds.

                  Well, day one use to be the first three rounds until this draft, so I guess I should have clarified a little. I think round three is a good round to start looking at the center position unless there is someone that is a "can't miss" kind of guy and that is asking a lot.

                  I also don't believe the Bengals view Guychick the way most fans do and would be apprehensive about pulling the trigger on the Center position that early in the draft.

                  I really can't say as I know anything about next years Centers, but I do know the position needs to be addressed in the next draft...
