As the NFL calendar rolls on, the games just keep getting more and more important for the Cincinnati Bengals. They have a huge one this Sunday, as they get set to host the Green Bay Packers.

To get you set for a special game, we had a special Q & A session with The Wright Way Sports Network’s Malik Wright. It was a ton of fun wherein we covered a number of different topics.

Here are some of the facets we discussed:

  • Beyond Jessie Bates III, should Larry Ogunjobi currently be the Bengals’ top free agent re-acquisition for 2022?
  • Where does this upcoming game versus Green Bay stack up, in terms of recent importance, for the Cincinnati Bengals?
  • What do we make of the team and its offensive line performance through the first quarter of the year?
  • How do we view the state of the team’s cornerback position—both this year and looking at the 2022 draft class?
  • Is this week somehow an audition for Aaron Rodgers and the Steelers for a 2022 union?
  • And much more!

Have a listen, as this was a really fun episode! If we didn’t get to yours, you can send your questions into us in a number of ways:
