Old School Scribe Podcast: Anthony Munoz And The Drive To Be The Greatest Who Ever Lived
"I think a little more than half the teams failed me," says Munoz in the latest Old School Scribe Podcast highlighting the 40th anniversary of his 1981 AFC champs. "Like anything else, a lot of times it takes just one. And it took one team to say, 'Hey, we're going to draft you,' and I'll always be thankful to the Bengals."

Could the Bengals be adding a Ring of Honor?
According to Jeremy Rauch of FOX 19, the Bengals deleted a tweet from their official Twitter account that appeared to show the names of offensive tackle Anthony Munoz, quarterback Ken Anderson and defensive lineman Tim Krumrie listed on the stadium facade. Cameras from the TV station were also able to capture Munoz’s name on the stadium walls on video shot from outside of the stadium.

Did Bengals accidentally leak upcoming Ring of Honor plans?
But this one was interesting because astute fans quickly zoomed in on the image and noticed the stadium bowl video board listed off the names of a few franchise legends: Anderson, Krumrie and Munoz.

Dave Lapham Names One Free Agent He Wants the Cincinnati Bengals to Sign This Offseason
"I'd probably spend my big dollars on Joe Thuney or Brandon Scherff," Lapham said on the latest episode of the Bengals Booth Podcast. "One of those offensive linemen that can be a bell cow. Everybody talks about how guards aren't that important. Well in today's NFL they've become more and more important. They're important in the run game. Everybody talks about pressure in a quarterbacks face. The depth of the pocket is determined by the guards and the center up front so I think the guards are taking a bigger and bigger role.
