We’re heading into Super Bowl LV and we’re bringing you special guests to get you covered for the big game between the Chiefs and Buccaneers. Bengals legend and a guy who knows a thing or two about the big game, Ken Anderson, re-joins us on the program.

We can’t wait to stroll down memory lane and talk about “The Freezer Bowl” and Super Bowl XVI in that magical 1981 season. We also are curious to get his thoughts on Joe Montana and Tom Brady, as well as the current state of the Cincinnati Bengals.

Mr. Anderson joins us courtesy of his charity, the Ken Anderson Alliance. They help give numerous opportunities to adults with developmental disabilities and are in need of assistance from Bengals fans like you. Visit their website to see how you can help!

John and Anthony also engaged in another “State Your Case” debate and gave the listeners another free agency profile. You can join us here on Cincy Jungle, its Facebook page, as well as on our OBI Twitter account for every live episode, or YouTube channel (above-embedded video).

This week:

  • Ken Anderson recalls the mindset of the team heading into “The Freezer Bowl”, as the Bengals hosted a great Chargers team—one they handled well earlier in the season.
  • No. 14 also talked about how the Bengals regrouped at halftime of Super Bowl XVI to nearly beat the 49ers.
  • In the eyes of Anderson, there is Joe Montana and Tom Brady, but one other quarterback from years past should also be in the “GOAT conversation”.
  • What did Anderson see from Joe Burrow and Tee Higgins this year?
  • What would Anderson say in a scouting report about a relatively-unknown prospect out of Augustana College?
  • In this week’s “State Your Case” segment, John drew an interesting parallel between Sam Hubbard and Joe Mixon.
  • Could Matt Feiler be a solid upgrade for the Bengals’ offensive line via free agency?
