The Cincinnati Bengals, who narrowly missed the NFL Playoffs, have a lot of work ahead of them this offseason.

The Bengals finished the season with a winning record of 9-8, despite missing out on the playoffs.

Frank Pollack and the offensive line are among the fans’ top worries heading into the summer.

When Joe Burrow was playing, the run game really suffered. However, when Browning started games, it occasionally sprang to life.

Joe Mixon finished the season with over 1,000 running yards and nine touchdowns, despite the run game’s troubles up front. However, he only had one 100-yard game, which occurred in the season’s finale when Cleveland rested its starting lineup.

Throughout the season, there were moments when the Bengals’ run game was nonexistent, which necessitated Burrow and Browning throwing more passes than necessary.

When running the football, the Bengals offensive line appeared to be perplexed at certain points in the footage.

The Bengals gave up 50 sacks in 17 games, which is tied for the seventh-highest total in the NFL, and an average of 2.9 sacks per game. Before sustaining his season-ending wrist injury against Baltimore, Burrow was sacked twice in the first half alone. He had been sacked three or more times in five of his ten games. The previous week against Houston, he had been sacked four times.

This debate has multiple sides to it. Is Frank Pollack failing to adequately prepare his players? Is Zac Taylor failing to let the offensive line to settle in? Burrow may be holding the ball for too long.

How do you feel? Is Frank Pollack going to be back for the 2024 season?

Zac Taylor expects the entire Bengals staff back in 2024

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Zac Taylor met with the media on Monday to discuss the team’s future plans as they start to concentrate on the 2024 campaign.

During a season marked by defensive setbacks, inconsistent play selections by the offensive line, and play calls that the fans didn’t agree with, some have gone so far as to demand that Taylor be fired in addition to the head coaches.

Taylor is here to stay. That is true to the fullest extent.

Taylor intends for position coaches and assistants to remain on the team as well. According to Taylor, unless someone is promoted from outside the building, he anticipates having all of the personnel back in 2024.

We still don’t know if Cincinnati’s poor defensive performance last year affected his market enough to keep defensive coordinator Lou Anarumo out of such talks this time around, even though he was a strong contender for head coaching positions during the summer.

Prior to Shane Steichen being hired by the Indianapolis Colts, offensive coordinator Brian Callahan was also a candidate for head coaching last winter.

A team could decide to pursue an offensive coordinator who still managed to lead their team to nine victories after Joe Burrow missed seven games and nearly the whole first month of the season as the franchise quarterback.

Dan Pitcher, the quarterbacks coach, had an interview to become the offensive coordinator for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He then took a paid leave of absence and returned to Cincinnati.

Although Taylor seems to intend to keep offensive line coach Frank Pollack on staff, Pollack has faced criticism from supporters this season. The only assistant who seemed to be in danger of losing his job was Pollack, but it looks like he’s staying for the time being.

Is keeping all the staff the right move for the Bengals? Let us know in the comment section!
