    Posted Jul 19, 2017

    How fitting that on Wednesday Willie Anderson anchors the next-to-last installment of the vote choosing the Bengals’ top 50 players of all-time. Anderson, the franchise’s all-time right tackle, comes in at No. 14, just behind his right guard, Max Montoya at No. 13, and, even more fitting, just ahead of Corey Dillon at No. 15. Dillon, the club’s all-time rusher, ripped off 8,061 yards in 107 games and Anderson was his right tackle in 106 of them in those days the Bengals were also-rans who could run at will and behind Willie and Dillon is right with him again.
