Mr. Monday: Boomer's fitting prime-time return
It's only fitting that Boomer Esiason takes his bow as a member of the Bengals First 50 on a Monday night. "He was prime time," says Willie Anderson, the last guy who blocked his blind side. When Anderson catches a Monday night game on his car radio and hears Esiason's voice, where it has been for the last 18 years of Monday nights, Anderson smiles. There it is.
Boomer Soothes By Talking The Game
The numbers from his hometown appall Boomer Esiason. But the same characteristics that made him one of football's greatest team leaders, resiliency, determination, optimism, make him a soothing voice when he talks the game. As usual, he rears back and throws, busting some myths around the Bengals and offering why he thinks Joe Burrow compares to LeBron James.

Boomer Esiason, the Bengals' NFL MVP quarterback, greatest locker-room leader in franchise history and now a ubiquitous voice of the 21st century game, is enjoying the work of one of his striped descendants as Joe Burrow heads into the second half of his rookie season.

Boomer Unplugged Fitting 30th Anniversary Gift
It was this week 30 years ago when Boomer Esiason first proved he could inform, incite, engage and entertain from a national podium.

Why quarterbacks are in more danger than ever despite the rules. And why he's all in on the massive changes about to hit Bengaldom. And more.
Boomer primes Anderson for Hall
Boomer Esiason, who went straight from running the Bengals' no huddle offense to the no holds barred Monday night TV booth and later to the MNF radio side, has fond memories of day games. Now that he's announced he's stepping away from prime time, in part, because of the randomness of the Rand McNally schedule, he's still one of the NFL's leading opinion makers and believes the Hall of Fame voters need a map to put Ken Anderson in Canton.
Burrow's Focus Has Collinsworth Recalling His Two Bengals QBs
Maybe no one is better acquainted with Bengals quarterback history than Cris Collinsworth. He has first-hand knowledge. Make that both hands. He caught 1,000-yard seasons from both Ken Anderson and Boomer Esiason, the Bengals NFL MVPs, and he sees a common thread with No. 9. He'd love to see Burrow joined again with Ja'Marr Chase in a draft day reunion. But not so fast. He likes the Bengals receivers, too, such as the guy that tied his Bengals rookie record, Tee Higgins.
