Bengals announce all-time team

In celebration of the team's 40th anniversary, Bengals.com ran a poll that asked Bengals fan to pick the best player at each position in the history of the franchise. There's some here that will make you wonder. Though if you didn't vote, then do you really have a right to complain? Why not? That's what we do best.

Quarterback - Carson Palmer
I love Palmer. He's the greatest thing since sliced bread and roller derby. But should be listed above Kenny Anderson and Boomer Esiason? When it's said and done, Palmer could achieve more than our franchise's two best quarterbacks. But right now? I'm not so sure.

Running back - James Brooks
Wide Receiver - Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh
Fullback - Ickey Woods
Tight End - Dan Ross (by 41 points over Tony McGee)
Center - Rich Braham
Guards - Max Montoya and Dave Lapham
Tackles - Anthony Munoz and Willie Anderson

Defensive End - Justin Smith and Ross Browner
Defensive Tackle - Tim Krumrie and Mike Reid
Linebacker - Reggie Williams, Takeo Spikes and Brian Simmons
Cornerback - Ken Riley and Lemar Parrish
Safety - David Fulcher and Solomon Wilcots

Good, bad? You decide. I think most are close to mine. Though I question T.J. Houshmandzadeh. He's a tremendous receiver and right now, he's probably the best on the team. Thought I think he won simply out of having the year he's having. Brian Simmons? I don't know.
