Cincinnati Bengals Ring of Honor? Who should make the list
A third-round pick in the 1971 NFL Draft, Ken Anderson started only four games in his rookie season. However, he grew into one of the most important Bengals that Cincinnati has ever seen. Anderson called Paul Brown Stadium home for his entire sixteen-year career. He even led the club to the Super Bowl in 1981.
Anderson was named to four Pro Bowls, one first-team all-pro, and two second-team all-pro. He led the league in passing yards twice. Finally, he was named MVP during the Bengals’ Super Bowl run in 1981.
Anderson should be in the Hall of Fame and no doubt deserves to be in the inaugural class of the Bengals’ Ring of Honor.
A tenth-round pick of the 1983 NFL Draft, Tim Krumrie played in 188 games for the Bengals. In total for his career, he finished with over 1,000 total tackles, 34 sacks, and 13 fumble recoveries. He helped lead the team to the 1988 Super Bowl where he, unfortunately, suffered a drastic leg injury. He played six more seasons after his leg injury and led the Bengals in tackles during the 1992 season.
Krumrie was selected to two Pro Bowls, one first-team all-pro, and one second-team all-pro. Following his retirement in 1994, he joined the Bengals as a defensive line coach until 2002.
