For 45 of the last 47 years he has been a franchise fixture, first as the most versatile offensive lineman in Bengals history and now as the club's popular radio analyst heading into his 36th season in the booth. The starting right guard on Paul Brown's best and last team in 1975 and the starting left guard on the first Super Bowl team in 1981, he played all five line positions during two of his 140 games and helped mentor Hall of Fame left tackle Anthony Munoz during his first four seasons as his left guard. The quick, analytical mind that allowed him to move up and down the line at will (his teammates called him "The Tool," to compliment his versatility) has translated so well to radio that his voice has become as familiar as an uncle's to generations of Bengals fans. His quick wit, keen football acumen and bubbly love of the game and all things Bengals have made him the conscience of Who Dey Nation.
