Item description for The Road Back: The Cincinnati Bengals by Thomas E. Witte Lonnie Wheeler...
See them at their best moments of leadership, pulling the ball out of the sky, charging through a tenacious d-line, eluding a tackle, appreciating the fans, or simply clowning around. These are not the Bengals of old; these are the Bengals of Coach Marvin Lewis, a team of great players who possess even greater character. And here is the photo book to prove it.
Gorgeous, large, color photographs, taken by Sports Illustrated contributing photographer and Cincinnati resident Thomas Witte, chronicles the excitement given by the players and taken in by the fans from the Marvin Lewis era of the Cininnati Bengals--an era of winning seasons, zany touchdown celebrations, and a future so bright you have to squint.
The road back for the Bengals includes the loss of old star players but also the emergence and acquisition of young talent that came to the team simply to be a part of the resurrection. From the grace of Jon Kitna, to the stoic leadership of Carson Palmer, and the zany touchdown celebrations of the uncoverable Chad Johnson, Marvin Lewis and his staff took a team that had been trained to lose and taught them how to win.
Over 200 color photographs, with text by Cincinnati Post sportswriter Lonnie Wheeler, tells the story of The Road Back for Cincinnati's Cinderella team. This one-of-a kind keepsake Bengals photo book is a must for any Bengals fan.

'Back?' Since when? Nov 15, 2007
Since when are the Bengals 'back?' You mean that sad one-and-done playoff appearance a couple years back? I'm sure the author of this book is embarrassed by his title now, since more recent events have proven that season's (limited) success to be a complete fluke.
