The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: Under center

Teams are inching their way back into their facilities, and Anthony and John discuss the passing of a Bengals legend. The crew also looks at the quarterback position in its “9 for 9” positional breakdowns.

Some of the team’s figureheads are returning to the facilities as clubs are tentatively re-opening for in-person activities. Details need to be ironed out, but it appears that we are getting to a real semblance of NFL football.

There are some interesting pieces of news with new guys like D.J. Reader and others, so we examined the potential outcomes with said news. Speaking of news, some more unfortunate headlines made their way to Bengaldom this week in the passing of Ken Riley—John and Anthony shared some thoughts on No. 13.

We also continued our “9 for 9” positional preview series, as we get close to the end of the groups.

Some tidbits from this week:

  • Ken Riley’s omission from the Hall of Fame remains a travesty.
  • Unfortunately, his death this week should instill a reminder to both the folks at Canton and at Paul Brown Stadium that he (and other Bengals players) need to be further recognized.
  • Does D.J. Reader shedding weight point to his ability to still remain highly-productive—especially against the AFC North?
  • What should statistical expectations be for Joe Burrow in his rookie year?
  • Are the Bengals already set at the quarterback position group before the preseason even transpires?
