We always have a great conversation when Jimmy Burrow visits In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics. Sometimes, we ask Jimmy to put on his coaching hat, sometimes his father's hat since he is the father of Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, and sometimes, we ask him to put on the hat the majority of us wear, a fan's hat when talking about the Bengals. We do a deep dive following the Bengals' loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game from the previous weekend. During our talk, we discuss a longtime rivalry brewing between Joe Burrow and Patrick Mahomes in the coming years. When a team has success, coaches, and players are given opportunities elsewhere, and how he feels the Bengals will have quality coaches and players wanting to stay or be part of what has been cooking in Paycor Stadium the past few years. We touch on the continued development of his son's overall game and how he's hopeful this will be the first offseason Joe has enjoyed without dealing with any off-the-field disruptions. And also the work, the Burrow family, is doing with the Joe Burrow Foundation (visit: JoeBurrow.org for more information.) We hope you enjoy our latest conversation with former NFL player, longtime college coach, and Joe Burrow's dad, Jimmy Burrow.
Born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio, FOX News Bill Hemmer has stayed true to his roots, cheering for his hometown teams, the Elder Panthers, Reds, and Bengals, no matter where he's gone in the world. Hemmer, who was in Kansas City last Sunday for the Bengals AFC Championship Game against the Chiefs, got In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, to discuss the outcome, quality of officiating, his work in journalism that goes back to when he was working sports at WLWT-TV and WCPO-TV with John Popovich and Dennis Janson. Football is a passion for the FOX News co-anchor, who teams with Dana Perino on America's Newsroom on weekday mornings and has since his days at Our Lady of Victory and Elder High School, where he followed older brother Andy Hemmer (played at Boston College) earning honorable mention all-city as a defensive back his senior year. Not only do Hemmer and Lap talk about the success of the Bengals and quarterback Joe Burrow, but they also dig into Hemmer's work as a reporter for both CNN and FOX News and stories and interviews that have stayed with him over the years. Who would be his dream interview? Hemmer also turns the table of Lapham looking to start early talks about the Bengals' draft needs in the next NFL Draft to be held this spring.

Cincinnati Bengals senior defensive assistant coach Mark Duffner has almost seen it all when it comes to football. Having been a longtime college head coach and assistant coach in the NFL since 1987, Duffner is known for his energetic outlook on life on and off the field. The past few seasons Duffner, who is in his second stint with the Bengals, has watched as young players like Joe Burrow, Logan Wilson, Sam Hubbard, and others have stepped forward to make the Bengals into a franchise that expects to win at the highest level. Despite the outcome of Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, Duffner knows the Bengals have a good taste with their success of the past two seasons, but also wants more in an ending raising the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Duffner talks about the makeup of the Bengals team, why there is renewed excitement in the air of Cincinnati about the Bengals, and getting ready to attack the NFL Draft and free agency to build the team fans hope can win it all next season.

It's hard to believe we're doing our final Postgame Thoughts here on In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics. However, the Cincinnati Bengals went down fighting after a slow start against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game on Sunday night, 23-20. Like many games during an entire season, plays were made, plays were missed, and there are always questions on calls from officials that seem to go against your team. That is no different from what happened to Zac Taylor and his exciting squad of talented players, who aimed to capture a second consecutive AFC Championship crown and a return trip to the Super Bowl. While the Bengals made enough plays to take the game down to the final seconds, this season had no magical ending. The future is bright with a roster full of young and talented players, but as with any new season, there will undoubtedly be some changes along the way with the NFL Draft coming this spring and other roster moves. While we'll leave the latter part for another In The Trenches, the future is bright and exciting for those who cheer on Joe Burrow, Ja'Marr Chase, and company in the stands, at home, or across the world. We hope you've enjoyed our coverage of the Bengals this season on In The Trenches, and we can't thank First Star Logistics enough for their tremendous support in allowing us to do something we love.

Former Cincinnati Bengals safety Solomon Wilcots returns to In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, to give out some wisdom on what he's seeing with this season's Bengals team as they prepare for another AFC Championship Game against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. Wilcots hears the talk and has given his opinion to others about why Joe Burrow, Zac Taylor, and Lou Anarumo have made significant changes to the Bengals on both sides of the ball and in the locker room. Solomon and Lap discuss the Bengals' impressive win over the Buffalo Bills, why others need to start listening about how good the Bengals are now and will be in the future, and Sunday's big showdown with Andy Reid, Travis Kelce, Mahomes and a Chiefs defense looking to shutdown Burrow, Ja'Marr Chase, Joe Mixon and the rest of the Bengals offensive weapons with the winner headed to Super Bowl LVII.
Long-time NFL Insider Peter King showed the Cincinnati Bengals a lot of love following their win over the Buffalo Bills last Sunday. Jackson Carman, Mike Hilton, and defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo all saw King praise their performances in helping the Bengals reach the AFC Championship Game this weekend. However, King, a former Bengals beat writer, saved his most significant statements and praise for quarterback Joe Burrow. You won't want to miss King's return visit to In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, as he talks about the Bengals' win over the Bills, top performances, a look at what the Bengals must do to beat the Kansas City Chiefs to win back-to-back AFC Championships, and why he feels Bengals fans are in an era that is going to be the greatest in Bengals history when all is said and done.
It was a homecoming for Cincinnati Bengals quarterback coach Dan Pitcher this past Sunday as the Cortland, New York native, who grew up a Buffalo Bills fan, returned as a marked enemy of the Bills Mafia with quarterback Joe Burrow as his weapon of choice. Pitcher, who came to the Bengals in 2016 as an offensive assistant and was promoted to quarterback coach by Zac Taylor for the 2020 season, has been with Burrow since the Bengals drafted him with the overall No. 1 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, knows he's working with a once in a lifetime talent and has no problem heaping praise on his quarterback. Dan Pitcher returns to In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, to discuss the Bengals' big Divisional game win over his childhood team, the Bills, about Sunday's opponent, the Kansas City Chiefs, the Bengals offense and star quarterback Joe Burrow.

Also, Dan and company dissect another playoff exit for the ever-promoted Dallas Cowboys.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
If last week's Wild Card Game against the Baltimore Ravens had Cincinnati Bengals fans on the edge of their seats, Sunday's dominating 27-10 win over the Buffalo Bills had fans watching one of the best overall performances of the season while advancing to the AFC Championship Game for a second consecutive season to face the Kansas City Chiefs. Bills fans watched as the Bengals hammered down coffin nails in their season. Any dreams of reaching a Super Bowl were put to rest as Joe Burrow threw for 242 yards and two touchdowns, one each to Ja'Marr Chase and Hayden Hurst, while Joe Mixon played with a massive smile on his face rushing for 105 yards and a touchdown and the Bengals defense kept Josh Allen in check with only eight yards in the first quarter and no touchdown passes and an interception for the entire game. Dave Lapham jumped In The Trenches, presented by First Star Logistics, to give his postgame thoughts on the Bengals' big win behind a revamped offensive line and another gem of a game plan by Zac Taylor, Brian Callahan, and Lou Anarumo.
In the second hour, Gabe Ramirez and Mark Grote spent time previewing the Bills-Bengals matchup in the NFL divisional round Sunday. They were first joined by Bills radio sideline reporter Sal Capaccio before being joined by Bengals radio analyst Dave Lapham. Later, Ramirez and Grote welcomed in studio a surprise guest in Miguel Esparza, the Spanish radio voice of the Cubs, Blackhawks and Bears.
#bengals #nflplayoffs #davelapham The next round of the AFC playoffs takes the Cincinnati Bengals to Buffalo to battle the Bills, with the winner heading to the AFC Championship Game next weekend. The Bengals are looking for their tenth straight victory of the season. While the NFL decided to go ahead and sell tickets for a Bills vs. Chiefs Championship Game, the Bengals know the first order of business is stopping Bills quarterback Josh Allen and protecting Joe Burrow with their revamped offensive line missing three starters. This match-up was to happen at the beginning of the month, with the Bengals jumping to a quick score and their defense holding Allen and the Bills' offense to a field goal. The second drive went as well as the first before play was stopped, with Damar Hamlin suffering cardiac arrest and shocking both teams to the core. While nothing from the first meeting was counted, this time, the game has a significant reward as the winner will take on the winner of the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. the Kansas City Chiefs match-up in the AFC Championship Game. This week on In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, we've had some great guests leading up to the game. So be sure to check out any you might have missed.
#Bengals #Bills #nflplayoffs Cincinnati native and Buffalo Bills color commentator Eric Wood gets back In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, to discuss Sunday's AFC Divisional Playoff Game between the Bengals and Bills. We'll discuss the past meeting between the two teams that ended early due to the severe injury to Damar Hamlin and talk about each team's journey to reach this game with a trip to the AFC Championship Game on the line. Eric attended Elder High School before an excellent college career at the University of Louisville that saw him drafted by the Bills in the first round of the 2009 NFL Draft. He would play nine seasons for the Bills before ending his football career because of a neck injury.
We welcome back to In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, the one, and only Cris Collinsworth to talk about the game he witnessed between the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens, with Logan Wilson and Sam Hubbard making the game-winning play fans will not soon forget. While discussing the win over the Ravens, we look hard at the Bengals' upcoming opponent, the Buffalo Bills, led by quarterback Josh Allen. How can Joe Burrow and the Bengals offense have success? Can the Bengals overcome the injuries along the offensive line? Will Lou Anarumo's defense have another big-time performance? Collinsworth and Lapham talking Bengals football are a must-listen for all Bengals fans, and Burrow and company are one game away from making another AFC Championship Game appearance.
It's always exciting when two former NFL offensive linemen talk about life In The Trenches. All Bengals fans will want to watch this episode of In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, as we welcome back Bengals offensive line coach Frank Pollack. Coach Pollack had the luxury of having his main five offensive linemen for 15 games this season before, one-by-one-by-one, he lost La'el Collins, Alex Cappa, and Jonah Williams in each of the last three games played. Pollack knows no one will feel sorry for him or the Bengals when they take the field Sunday afternoon in Buffalo to take on the Bills in AFC Divisional Playoff action. However, he's stressed all season to Jackson Carman, Hakeem Adeniji, Max Scharping, D'Ante Smith, and Isaiah Prince; they were one play away from starting and a significant role in the team's overall success this season. Pollack and Lap talk about the win over the Ravens. How their AFC North rival's defense is a lot like their upcoming opponent, along with some of the players the offensive line will have to account for to protect quarterback Joe Burrow and open running lanes for Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine as Bills Ed Oliver, Greg Rousseau, and Tremaine Edmunds will look to keep the Bengals from advancing to the AFC Championship Game the following weekend.
Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo returns to In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, to discuss the Bengals' defensive performance against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night in NFL Wild Card playoff action as the Bengals won 24-17 against their AFC North rival to advance to Divisional play against the Buffalo Bills. Anarumo will discuss some key plays and performances against the Ravens, including the primetime Bengals that helped Sam Hubbard set an NFL playoff record 98-yard fumble return for a touchdown that proved to be the points needed to move the Bengals to the next round in their journey to reach another Super Bowl. Coach Anarumo knows the Bengals' defense will have their hands full, but he fully expects his defense to be ready to battle to another win.
It will be a long time before Cincinnati Bengals fans forget Sunday night's Bengals 24-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens in the AFC Wild Card game at Paycor Stadium. If John Harbaugh left with a sour taste last weekend after losing to the Bengals, what he's feeling this weekend will be hard to explain until next season as the Ravens looked primed to take the lead over the Bengals only to see linebacker Logan Wilson punch the football out of the outstretched hands of Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley into the open hands of Bengals defensive end Sam Hubbard who would race for an NFL playoff record 98-yard touchdown to give the Bengals the lead. After a last-ditch effort with a pass into the end zone failed, Bengals fans had The Jungle roaring with excitement, knowing the Bengals had advanced to play in the AFC Divisional Round next Sunday against the Buffalo Bills in Buffalo. Dave Lapham jumped In The Trenches, presented by First Star Logistics, to give his postgame thoughts on the Bengals' big win, the injury to left tackle Jonah Williams, how his replacement Jackson Carman played, and the things needed to be worked on as the Bengals get ready for a tough match-up against the Bills.
Bengals Fans, can you feel it? The Cincinnati Bengals defeated the Baltimore Ravens last Sunday to leave no doubt about who the AFC North Champion was for the second straight year. We've done 17 Laps Keys To Bengals Victory but played 16 games after what happened against the Buffalo Bills. Now, all that is behind us, and it's time to start talking about the AFC playoffs as the Bengals welcome back to Paycor Stadium the Ravens for a third matchup this season. We all know John Harbaugh won't have quarterback Lamar Jackson for the game, and there are still some questions if Tyler Huntly or Anthony Brown will take the majority of snaps. Either way, we trust Lou Anarumo to have the defense ready to make key stops like last Sunday. Joe Burrow said it himself, he did not play a great game last weekend, and it's time for Brian Callahan and Zac Taylor to let Joe Burrow, Ja'Marr Chase, and Joe Mixon have explosive performances to earn a playoff win and advance to play another weekend. We've been busy at In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, with press conferences by Taylor and Burrow and exclusive one-on-one interviews with Anarumo and Callahan.

The ties between Dave Lapham In The Trenches and the voice of the Baltimore Ravens, Gerry Sandusky, run deep in the football world. Sandusky's father, John Sandusky, played for Cincinnati Bengals founder and former head coach Paul Brown with the Cleveland Browns. In contrast, Dave Lapham was coached by the elder Sandusky in an all-star game when he came out of Syracuse University before being drafted by Paul Brown and the Bengals in the 1974 NFL Draft. Gerry Sandusky became the radio play-by-play man in 2006 and brings vast knowledge about the 2022 Ravens squad the Bengals will face for a third time this season when the two match up on Sunday night in Wild Card Playoff action in front of a national audience. Don't miss this exclusive one-on-one with Gerry as he returns to In The Trenches, presented by First Star Logistics, to discuss what is happening with Lamar Jackson as the Ravens star quarterback will be out another week. Is Jackson's injury more severe than previously thought? Is Jackson motivated to stay out without a new contract and watch the Ravens sign newly acquired linebacker Roquan Smith to a deal making him the highest-paid off-the-ball linebacker in the NFL? Sandusky gives his thoughts and looks at what fans should expect from both teams in another major AFC North battle with playoff dreams on the line.
The great Boomer Esiason is back In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, to deep dive into Sunday's third match-up between the Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens this season. Boomer hits on several topics as we discuss what happened in the Monday night game that didn't happen between the Buffalo Bills and Bengals, the continued success of Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow, who, along with the other starting quarterbacks playing for AFC playoff teams that remind him of some greats from the past. What can Bengals fans expect when John Harbaugh brings the Ravens back to Cincinnati after playing last Sunday to close out the regular season? And despite his love of talking offense, Boomer knows defense is vital and feels the Bengals have shown they have what it takes to make another run in the playoffs, as Lou Anarumo has the Bengals making big plays heading into the playoffs. You won't want to miss the return of Norman Julius "Boomer" Esiason, as he's always loved hanging out in the trenches.
The Cincinnati Bengals defense continues to make big plays when needed most, and defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo has faith they'll continue to do it as the Bengals navigate the AFC playoffs starting with a third meeting with AFC North rival, the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday night. Anarumo, whose name is talked about in NFL circles as a head coach in waiting, knows he's got a good thing in Cincinnati, as the Bengals organization has provided him with the players needed to run his defensive scheme with great success over the past two seasons. What challenges do the Ravens bring in this third match-up, as no one knows if Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson will be taking his first game snaps since injuring his left knee on Dec. 4, a span of 38 days? If not Jackson, will it be Tyler Huntley, who is also fighting his own injury issues, or Anthony Brown, the quarterback the Bengals faced last weekend in the final regular season game? Anarumo knows that the Ravens will be looking to run the ball with J.K Dobbins, Gus Edwards, and Justice Hill while hitting their tight end-heavy receiving group led by Mark Andrews and the fast-rising Isaiah Likely. You know you'll always get an education on defense when Anarumo jumps In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics.
Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan jumps back In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, to discuss what happened against the Buffalo Bills and updated status of safety Damar Hamlin and how the Bengals moved past what happened to return to the Paycor Stadium turf to beat the Baltimore Ravens and leave no doubt, the Bengals are back-to-back AFC North Champions. Callahan talks about the Bengals' win over their divisional rival this past Sunday, only to turn around and start his prep work for a third match-up t his season. Covered during our informative conversation is the loss of right guard Alex Cappa to injury, leaving the Bengals without two of their season-long starters along the revamped offensive line in back-to-back games as La'el Collins went down against the Patriots and Cappa the Ravens. What is expected of replacements Hakeem Adeniji at right tackle and Max Sharping at right guard? Callahan talks about both players and more as we start working towards a primetime match-up between the Ravens and Bengals on Sunday night, with the winner advancing to the next round of the AFC Playoffs.
The final week of the NFL regular season is now over, with the Cincinnati Bengals on an eight-game winning streak after beating the Baltimore Ravens 27-16 at Paycor Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Bengals finished with the No. 3 seed and will welcome back John Harbaugh and the Ravens for their Wild Card game on Sunday night at 8:15 pm on NBC and the First Star Logistics Bengals Radio Network. Joe Burrow and the offense were not sharp, only posting 257 total yards of offense as Burrow went 25 of 42 for 215 yards and one touchdown to Ja'Marr Chase. Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine combined for 17 carries for 45 yards and a Mixon touchdown. The Bengals' defense gave up 386 yards but posted four sacks and two interceptions while also recovering two fumbles, including a Joseph Ossai touchdown after Trey Hendrickson stripped Ravens quarterback Anthony Brown. One primary concern is the injury to Bengals right guard Alex Cappa who might be out for the rest of the season. Adding Cappa to the loss of La'el Collins a few weeks ago means the Bengals will need another player to step forward and fill the need. Dave Lapham was on the call for the game and jumped In The Trenches, presented by First Star Logistics, to discuss the win, season, and upcoming rematch in the Wild Card round against the Ravens.

For Eric Wood, growing up on the West side of Cincinnati had him watching the Bengals and listening to Dave Lapham. So after his successful high school career at Elder High School, Wood headed to the University of Louisville, where he became one of the top centers in the nation. While there was hope he would become a member of the Bengals, Wood received the call from the Buffalo Bills and started a nine-year NFL career he was forced to abandon because of a career-ending injury discovered during his post-season physical. After being away from the game for a year, Wood became the Bills' radio color analyst in 2019. Leading up to Monday Night Football's big match-up between the Bills and Bengals, Wood lined up In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, talking about growing up in Cincinnati, talks with the Bengals pre-draft, his career in Buffalo, and the big match-up between Josh Allen and Joe Burrow that will take center stage Monday night.

Solomon gives his wisdom as the Cincinnati Bengals prepare for the final two weeks of the regular season, starting with the AFC-leading Buffalo Bills in a Monday Night Football marque match-up. The battle between Bills quarterback Josh Allen and Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow may get all the talk.

Monday night should be a big one as Wilcots and the remaining Bengals' famed Swat Team members have the honor to serve as Rulers of the Jungle. All Bengals fans will enjoy Lap and Solomon talking about all the keys to the Bengals' continued success.
Before college football became all about Power Five Conferences, football on the East Coast was some of the most competitive and led by several Hall of Fame coaches. While it may seem complicated to believe today, there was a time when Syracuse versus Penn State was for bragging rights in the Eastern part of the country. My college coach, Ben Schwartzwalder, battled Nittany Lion coaches Rip Engle and Joe Paterno during his long coaching career in some epic battles. Before arriving on the Syracuse campus, Franco Harris was on the campus of Penn State, making plays for Paterno and the Nittany Lions. Because of the old NCAA rules when first-year students didn't play, I'd seen Harris make plays and would compete against his Nittany Lions squad my sophomore year, which was his senior year. This was the start of a longtime rivalry between our teams. Harris would become a first-round pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers in the 1972 NFL Draft, and a few years later, Paul Brown and the Cincinnati Bengals drafted me in the third round of the 1974 NFL Draft. For my ten seasons with the Bengals, we played the Steelers 20 times, with the Bengals earning eight wins against a Steelers squad that would win four Super Bowls, with many Steelers feeling Franco was the glue to their success. After the 1983 season, the Steelers felt Franco had seen his better days and allowed him to sign with the Seattle Seahawks, where he ended his career in 1984. I left the Bengals after the 1983 season, where I would play two years in the USFL for the New Jersey Generals before ending my playing career. Shortly after, started a career in broadcasting as a color analyst with the Bengals in 1986. While Franco Harris was a longtime rival, he was also a great man off the field who touched many by giving his time and energy for the betterment of all. Harris was more than just part of one of the greatest plays in NFL history, the "Immaculate Reception," and I wanted to take time on In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, to pay tribute to one of football's all-time greats, Franco Harris.
The Cincinnati Bengals were in a great mood as they prepared for their return flight home after beating Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots, 22-18, to finish out a perfect November and December with a seven-game winning streak. It was Christmas Eve, and all was right as players were ready to get home early to start their holiday celebrations with friends and family. However, shortly after the team plane left Rhode Island, an engine on their Delta jet failed, forcing the pilot to make an emergency landing at JFK in New York City and stopping everyone's celebrations. Get the inside story on what happened on the Bengals flight back to Cincinnati in a special In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics.
Dave Lapham is known as the most versatile offensive linemen in Cincinnati Bengals history. A player for Cincinnati from 1974-1983, Dave has since served as the Bengals radio color commentator for 30+ seasons and is still on the job.

Another big week on In The Trenches with Dave Lapham, presented by First Star Logistics, as the Cincinnati Bengals earned their spot in the AFC playoffs while looking to extend their winning streak to seven games by taking on another "Goat" Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots. Unlike last weekend, Joe Burrow and the Bengals' offense was firing on all cylinders in the first half of the game, putting up 22 points, while Lou Anarumo had the defense dialed in, shutting out Mac Jones and the Patriots' offense for a 22-0 lead at the half. But as good as Burrow and the Bengals' offense was at the start, things stalled as Belichick sprinkled his special magic dust as his defense posted the first Patriots points in the third quarter on a 69-yard interception return for a touchdown and then saw Jones throw two fourth-quarter touchdown passes to trail the Bengals 22-18. The Bengals' offense placed the defense on the ropes. Still, Anarumo saw D.J. Reader, Vonn Bell, and B.J. Hill working to force and recover a fumble when it looked like Belichick was about to add another career win over the Bengals in the closing seconds of the game. While the offense continued to struggle, the Bengals' defense made one more stand after a great directional punt by Drue Chrisman to close the door on the Patriots, post their seventh consecutive win, and move to 11-4 with two weeks left in the regular season against the AFC leading Buffalo Bills and AFC North rival the Baltimore Ravens.
It's the “Sledgehammer” edition of the Bengals Booth Podcast as the Bengals rally from a 17-0 deficit to hammer Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, scoring 34 unanswered points in a 34-23 win.
