The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: Jungle Kings

This week, John and Anthony give some more “Behind-the-Scenes Bengals”, recall some of their favorite 2021 Bengals games and dole out another “Remember When...?”.

The Bengals are continuing on-field work, while excitement builds for both the season and players returning to action. Both optimism and expectations are high for this team, despite other squads also making marked improvements.

We take some strolls down memory lane this week in the form of another “Remember When...?” and in recounting some of the best Bengals games and moments of 2021.

Here’s what was on tap:

  • The headlines around Bengals OTAs as they roll on aren’t so grabby—and that’s actually a good thing in a lot of ways.
  • What were some of our top 2021 Bengals games and why? Could a Cincinnati loss on last year’s schedule actually be a favorite?
  • One rotational interior defensive lineman and a back-end defensive back both bring valuable niches and highlight our “Behind-the-Scenes Bengals” list.
  • Remember when then-rookie head coach Marvin Lewis and the Bengals tried a lot of tactics and sales pitches to keep Takeo Spikes in Cincinnati back in 2003? (You can listen to our full Spikes interview from a while back here.)
  • And more!
