From a readily available deep ball that threatens defenses to more consistency from its playmakers; however, one glaring area of weakness for Cincinnati has been 3rd and short situations.

Awuzie shares his insight about his time in Cincinnati so far, the strong bond he shares with his family, and his upcoming fashion line.

    Can the Bengals stop Aaron Rodgers, protect Burrow vs. Packers w/ Matt Schneidman

    It's the invasion of the dairy lovers (with heads adorned with cultured dairy products)! Paul and Jay chat Bengals-Packers and contemplate the Bengals' position with either a 3-2, or 4-1 record. Some Cincy o-linemen have comedically bad PFF grades, PDJ and JM cut through the appraisals to give their impression of the club's big guys and predict if they'll protect Burrow adequately against GB. Frank Pollack shares words about Burrow's Montana-like essence as well. The Athletic's resident cheesehead, Matt Schneidman, joins Jay to share his insight into the Packers' 2021 campaign. Plus, our weekly Growler Bet and RPB wrap up the show.

Best Bengals Podcast Without Question!!!

If your a Bengals fan and you need a good chuckle then this podcast is for you. Full of Seinfeld-esc humor that will never disappoint from Paul and sad but true stats from Jay. I love this podcast

Love HTPG. But Paul......

PDJ, love ya, but you filibuster and go on and on and on sometimes lol. Need to let Jay talk more. The Burrow post injury pod was probably 80/20 talk ratio.
