The man, the myth, the legend, Jeff Lee Query was born March 7, 2007, and is the first of hopefully many profiles of amazing Bengal Single Season Hero Performances.
Query looks like he wants to punch Klinger in the head
Jeff Query played parts of 4 glorious seasons as a Cincinnati Bengal, and contrary to popular belief he was more than just the proud owner of the greatest Kentucky Waterfall this side of Andre Agassi. (One can only imagine how big a heartthrob Query was around the greater Cincitucky area) People forget but for one amazing season Jeff Query was a damn fine NFL wide receiver. The year was 1993 and rumor has it that his wallowing around in the toxic waste that surrounded Spinney Field gave him superhuman abilities. Nothing else could explain these new found powers that led Jeff Query to flat-out dominante opponents during the Bengals fall 1993 campaign. That the Bengals went 3-13 that year is but a minor side note to Query's virtuso performance. In 1993 Jeff Query was unstoppable as he amassed 56 catches for 654 yards at 11.7ypc to go along with 4 big TD grabs.
Just take a look at his game log from the season:
What a year 1993 was!!!
Just imagine what could have been for Jeff Query if only the Bengals had any semblance of an offense that year. If only it hadn’t taken the Bengals offense until their 15th game to break the 20 point barrier. If David Klingler hadn't gotten absolutely Klinglered (to the tune of him being sacked 40 times while amassing what was unfortunately not an statistical anomaly with a mighty 66.6 passer rating). If only...
Now for all those people who want to point out that having Jeff Query as your second receiver was a part of the problem and not the solution, well I say shame on you. Jeff Query was comet streaking through the night sky and we were all just lucky to have witnessed such brillance. Jeff Query, you sir wil always be a Bengal hero.
