Zac Taylor's small gesture has big effect on Bengals legend Chad Johnson

It’s been a big week for Cincinnati Bengals legend Chad Johnson.

The star wideout, along with another Bengals legend in Boomer Esiason, learned he is officially in the club that is the Bengals Ring of Honor, which is obviously a major milestone that deserves to be celebrated.

 

 

“To me, this honor means much more than getting a gold jacket, honestly,” Johnson told Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. “This is home. The fans understand the good times and the bad times, the ups and downs, and they accepted me as my true authentic self. This is a welcome home. You will always be a part of us, and this means a lot to me. A lot.”

 

 

Naturally, all kinds of congratulations were thrown Johnson’s way, but a simple text from Bengals head coach Zac Taylor really resonated with the three-time All-Pro.

It’s safe to say Ochocino is a big fan of Taylor, but we already knew that. And it’s safe to say Taylor has turned things around over the last few seasons – but we already knew that, too.

Taylor’s 22 regular season wins over the last two years tie the 2014-2015 stretch that also saw the Bengals compile 22 victories before the playoffs.

It’s the Bengals’ Super Bowl appearance, AFC Championship victory, and back-to-back AFC Championship game appearances that make 2021-2022 the most successful two-year run in franchise history. The Bengals had never been to consecutive AFCCGs before Taylor took over.

And the best part is the success shouldn’t go away anytime soon. With Joe Burrow at quarterback, Lou Anarumo as the defensive coordinator, and the key core still intact – Taylor and the Bengals should be contenders on a yearly basis.
