Now that the 12th annual Marvin Lewis Golf Classic on Sunday has been around longer than his most senior players, left tackle Andrew Whitworth and nose tackle, Domata Peko, not to mention arriving before his three AFC North titles, The Banks, and Barack Obama in the U.S. Senate, we can officially go Throwback on the Bengals head coach. Try Waly Reyes.
John Peters may be the closest we’ll ever come to finding a good-old-fashioned-1950s-diamond-in-the-rough during the information age’s 21st century of no-gemstone-unturned. Tight ends coach Jon Hayes is watching “Hard Knocks,’ and “American Idol,” rolled into one Bengals roster spot at No. 48.
The Bengals’ Mike Nugent is halfway to his goal of kicking 20 years in the NFL. Which means if he makes it, half his career will come dealing with extra points that weren’t as automatic as they were during his first 10 seasons.
The spine of the Bengals locker room still runs through Andrew Whitworth and Domata Peko. But young leaders like Jeremy Hill (above) and Giovani Bernard are emerging.
The addition of four rookie tight ends means, for the moment, the Bengals can let Ryan Hewitt continue to develop into what some in the building already see as potentially the NFL's best fullback.
