I nominate this thread for a Bag Head: Akiem Hicks vs. Brandon Thompson
fwiw Brandon Thompson went on to only play in 3 games for the Bengals and record only 1 tackle.
While our boy Akiem Hicks turned in 20 tackles and a forced fumble appearing in 14 games. Not to mention he got a push up the middle and hurried some throws by the QB also.
Edit: I mainly voted for this because I fricking hate knee jerk reaction threads. Especially against a player who nobody here really knew much about at the time.
