The Cincinnati Bengals and Cincinnati Reds Quarterback who also played for the New York Jets, Detective \"Herc\" Verlander of the Baltimore Police Department, and Nick Roush’s broadcast team in various NASCAR races. On the ESPN network, Boomer has been featured on NFL Live, NFL HQ, SportsCenter, Sunday NFL Countdown, Sunday NFL Countdown (ESPN) and Thursday Night Football.

Following his final year at Maryland, Esiason was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in the second round of the 1984 NFL Draft with the 38th overall pick, surprisingly low considering his successful college career. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. was, in Esiason's words, "going ballistic" that he was still available in the latter stages of the first round. No quarterbacks were drafted in the first round; Esiason was actually the first quarterback selected, as Steve Young had signed with the L.A. Express of the now-defunct United States Football League. Esiason's USFL territorial rights were controlled by the Washington Federals, the worst team in the league. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)


Rodgers lived up to the hype and brought a new level of excitement and entertainment to the NFL with his electrifying passing. He had a flair for the dramatic, taking the dramatic catch to win the game over the Philadelphia Eagles.

Twitter exploded on Friday, after the @BackAftaThis (a/k/a Funhouse) account posted a clip from the Morning Show with Boomer & Gio on WFAN in New York that pushed the idea that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will threaten to boycott the Super Bowl over the NFL’s COVID protocols. Apparently, it was all a prank. (Source: www.yahoo.com)

Super Bowl

Boomer Esiason, Cincinnati Bengals quarter_back, who retired on February 8, 2002, recovered from a form of chronic traumatic encephalopathy, was the first quarterback in NFL history to lead his team to five Super Bowl appearances. That same year, he was nominated for a starting All-Pro selection which caused him to consider ending his career. He eventually returned after announcing his retirement.
