It is now 35 years, six presidents, and a dynasty ago since they met on the 1 and history and from the confines of Charlie 4 Seasoning Inc., in Sugarland, Texas, former Bengals running back Charles Alexander had just one question from across the goal line of generations.
Carlos Dunlap got the call on Tuesday and Andrew Whitworth got the call on Wednesday to come off the bench for the AFC in the Pro Bowl, but it puts them both on the front line of Bengals history.
Head Coach Marvin Lewis addresses the team after their 27-10 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Game balls were given to Bill Connelly, Bengals Business Manager, who has been with the club for 41 years, and Jack Brennan, the club's PR Director for the past 23 years.
