Well, since no one else is guessing, I will go with Corey Dillon as the other most productive player (it's either him or Boomer) and "five" winning seasons for PB in Cintucky.

 

Zombo

No.

But what I do take from this is that the Bengal trolls are reluctant, apparently, to test their knowledge about their own team.

Answers:

 

1. Cincinnati had a team in the NFL that played in 1921 before folding. What was the name of that team?

The Cincinnati Celts

 

 

2. Cincinnati had a team in the NFL in 1933 and 1934 before folding. What was the name of that team?

The Cincinnati Reds. (the NFL had a tendency to name football teams the same as a towns baseball team. There were also Pittsburgh Pirates, Detroit Tigers, Cleveland Indians, NY Yankees etc.. The only vestige left of that today is the New York Giants which were named after that cities NL team...which has since moved. After the Cardinals move to Arizona no city had a football and baseball team with the same name.

but...note, the St. Louis Cardinals were NOT named after the St. Louis baseball team. In fact, those Cardinals spent nearly 40 years in Chicago before moving to St. Louis.

 

 

3. What dubious record do those 1933 and 1934 Cincinnati teams hold?

Since the NFL went to a playoff system...which also officially began in 1933, those 2 Reds teams hold the record for having the 2 seasons scoring points for a single season. In the 18 games they played, they were shut out 12 times.

 

 

4. In Paul Browns 8 season coaching the Bengals, how many winning seasons did he have?

He had 4 winning seasons....plus one .500 season

 

 

5. Cincinnatians are apparently obsessed with their schmekels. Since their inception in 1968, now many people named Johnson have led the Bengals in rushing? Give their names.

Essex Johnson, Pete Johnson, and Rudi Johnson......but no Dick Johnson.

 

 

6. Apparently, FYI, the Brown family was NOT hold the majority ownership interest in the Bengals. Who did?

Austin Knowlton. He was an architect and contractor who, among other things, built about a dozen buildings on the Ohio State Campus.

The Brown family did not actually attain majority ownership of the Bengals until 2011.

 

 

7. When the Bengals were originally founded in 1968, there was actually proposal to have their helmet designed basically as it is now, with the stripes (which they did adopt in 1981). However, that proposal had a different color scheme (not the black and orange). What two colors were proposed?

Turqoise and yellow

 

 

8. Which Bengals player actually sat on Cincinnati's City Council when he played for the Bengals?

WTIG in Massillon. Obviously that makes sense, no.

We didn't see him in the game yesterday. Perhaps the Bengals would have been better off to play him, the way Dalton played.

 

 

 

11. A. Which famous offensive scheme, more associated with another city, was actually supposedly formulated in Cincinnati with the Bengals?

The West Coast offense....an adaptation of Paul Browns offense when he coached the Browns, but the twerks were made by Bill Walsh as OC of the Bangles.

OK, I must have been looking at something else. They also do this "Weighted Average" and with that maybe Boomer came out ahead.

You may have been looking at Boomer total career value which also included his time with the Jets and Cardinals which would have put him ahead of both Riley and Anderson.
