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. In 2024, Taylor stated that he anticipates all employees to return, unless they receive promotions from outside the building.

We still don’t know if Cincinnati’s poor defensive performance last year affected his market enough to keep defensive coordinator Lou Anarumoout  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 it the appropriate decision for the Bengals to retain every employee? Tell us in the space provided for comments!

Months before Joe Burrow inked his $275 million contract deal with the Cincinnati Bengals, the loss of Vonn Bell and Jessie Bates had an effect. Bates agreed to a $64 million, four-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons. Bell agreed to a $22.5 million three-year contract with the Carolina Panthers.

However, when Anderson and Karras debuted their rendition of Philly’s Brotherly Shove this week, they came a lot closer than that. With the intention of constructing independent living facilities in Cincinnati for persons with developmental disabilities, the Ken Anderson Alliance has partnered with Karras’ The Cincy Hat initiative.

From 2003 to 2018, Lewis served as the Bengals’ head coach. During that time, the team had five straight (seven total) postseason trips. If Lewis signs with the Raiders, he will play in Cincinnati against the Bengals the following season.

That’s a prevalent idea that has already seen frequently in draft mocks. However, a recent one indicates that the Bengals might run into some difficulties obtaining their preferred offensive lineman.

Lewis, who assisted Antonio Pierce while the latter was the Las Vegas Raiders’ temporary head coach, is reportedly scheduled to join Pierce’s staff formally, according to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero. Pierce will be named the team’s permanent head coach, according to the Associated Press.

Although Theismann said Burrow had only played in one complete season, it is true that his career had been interrupted by two seasons-ending injuries. Throughout the whole 2021 season—the year the Bengals won the Super Bowl—he remained healthy! He, like with many other starters on that squad, did not participate in the regular season finale because their playoff spot had already been decided the week before.
