The numbers don't back that up at all and I would say that people especially on message boards have biases against certain players good or bad. Billings was bad his first season playing and people used that against him is whole time here. The numbers since haven't shown that at all though.

Fine.  Whatever.  I'm getting dizzy trying to keep up with the circular reasoning.  Here's hoping you don't fall down from all the reaching to make some kind of point.

Yeah you're right Nickel CB is much more valuable in todays NFL then nose tackle.

The numbers absolutely back up what I'm saying.  Here is a link to Billings lifetime stats.

For comparison sake, here are Reader's stats.

1.) Just because Reader is better than Billings doesn't mean Billings isn't good. Especially when you look at the price difference 13.5 vs 3.5 a year.I would say that Billings is an exceptional value
2.) These stats show that they were the same exact player in 2018. In fact Billings had more TFLs, more QB Hits, and more sacks( albeit was just a .5 sack difference).
3.) Can't wait to see Geno & Reader lineup

When you had the worst tackling defense in the NFL (and indeed possibly in NFL history) two years running and you go out and bring in five new starters all rated very highly in tackling and all younger and entering prime I think we can see the theme here. And we did not give up pass defense to get it as our new secondary players are basically as good as the ones they are replacing while being vastly superior at tackling and playing the run.

Billings is "average", while Reader is a "really good" player.  Significant difference.

Well, it was pretty easy, actually.  Bell and Reader are going to be playing on the same Bengals defense.

The same way it devolved into a "Drew Sample is a bust" thread a few pages ago.

Don't have a link...? May have been PFF? There are others on the board that are much better at posting analytics than I am. If I remember correctly, the article was debating the merits of moving Williams to LB? Then it went on to show that he didn't fair all that well inside last season.

Like you mentioned, he has a good nose for the ball. I've always liked him. Will be interesting to see how this plays out?

Yes you would think Shawn would be better in the box than he has been lately.

Vonn has clearly been better than him and is way younger, like I said, I like Shawn but he isn't as good as Vonn Bell.

Especially in tackling, but Shawn has the better nose for the ball.

I would like to keep both but this should be fun any way it plays out.
