The Bengals face tough battles against top competition in pursuit of their goals. The road to victory will be rigorous.
Except for Who Dey, that is.
For the second straight season, the irrepressible and irreverent Bengals Tiger character will be pitted against opposing team mascots on the covers of all Gameday programs. And it’s a cinch he’ll go undefeated with ease. This week, it's clear the Ravens will find their comfort zone severely compromised.
“We got great feedback on these covers last season, and we are enjoying bringing them back,” said Bengals public relations director Jack Brennan. “They’re a bit of a throwback to covers that were popular with many teams around the ‘60s, and we know we’ve got the right cartoonist for the job.”
That would be Jeff Stahler, an award-winning pro who previously was the editorial cartoonist for the Cincinnati Post and Columbus Dispatch. His cartoons currently are syndicated for use in major magazines and newspapers, and he also is in his 11th year of creating the nationally syndicated slice-of-life comic panel "Moderately Confused."
“Jeff has cartooned on many serious issues as well as lighter ones,” Brennan said, “but through it all he has shown a style that’s perfect for this kind of project. It’s uncluttered, whimsical and witty, and with an instantly clear message.”
