Packers will interview former Bengals OL coach Frank Pollack, per report

The Green Bay Packers’ quest for a new offensive line coach continues this week, and a new name is among the reported candidates. According to Packersnews.com, head coach Matt LaFleur will likely hold an interview with Frank Pollack, who served as the Cincinnati Bengals’ offensive line coach last season. Pollack is searching for a new job following the Bengals’ firing of Marvin Lewis. Interestingly, Bengals players and fans appeared to think very highly of Pollack — starting running back Joe Mixon among them.

Is the Bengals’ staff overhaul too fast and furious to ensure immediate success?

Is the Bengals’ staff overhaul too fast and furious to ensure immediate success?

Cincinnati has been in full house-cleaning mode since 2019 has begun, but is that setting themselves up for a fourth-straight losing season, despite the coaching change? Keeping up with the Bengals right now is a bit of a daily soap opera. As more and more news surfaces, we have tried to keep up with it all on our podcast. Usually, when a new coach takes over an NFL team, they get a small handful of years to mold the roster into their image and attempt to make a championship run. Most teams tend to give a new coach that coveted three-year window, but in today’s cutthroat business world...

Bengals grab an OT in Mel Kiper’s first mock draft

Bengals grab an OT in Mel Kiper’s first mock draft

Mel Kiper Jr. released his first mock draft of the year, and has the Bengals taking an offensive tackle. Now a few days beyond the deadline for underclassmen to declare for the 2019 NFL Draft, the talent pool for April’s draft is officially set. The biggest factor that’s been solidified this week is how defensive-heavy the top 10 seems to be looking. The strength of this year’s draft class appears to be on the defensive line, with a few players in the back seven vying to be a high pick as well. In Mel Kiper Jr.’s first mock draft of the year, he has seven defenders going in the...

Frank Pollack’s departure hurts the Bengals

The Cincinnati Bengals and their unofficial soon-to-be-hired head coach will need to find a replacement. This is one of those postings that may only interest me — AKA, I’m thinking about something and I answer it via a Chop Block post. There’s very little insight, story structure, or analysis here; just answering random musings from the couch during a stormy Cincinnati afternoon. There might not even be a conclusion; I’ll just stop when I’m finished. When the Bengals let linebackers coach Jim Haslett, running backs coach Kyle Caskey, and tight ends coach Jonathan Hayes go, it...

2019 East-West Shrine Game: 5 prospects for Bengals fans to watch

Before we get to the Senior Bowl, we mustn’t look past this week’s Shrine Game. Here’s a look at five players to watch for. Some would tell you that there are only three football games left this season. There’s actually six (and no, the Pro Bowl isn’t one of them). In the next two weeks, some of most talented and unheralded college football players will be competing in the three major collegiate all-star games: the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, the East-West Shrine Game, and of course the Senior Bowl. The NFLPA Bowl and the Shrine Game will each take place this upcoming Saturday, with...

Film room: What Zac Taylor’s offense in Cincinnati could look like in 2019

Looking at the Rams offense to see what we should expect for the Bengals. One of the most interesting factoids about the Rams’ offense is how much of their playbook is ran out of 11 personnel (one running back, one tight end, and three wide receivers). In fact, the Rams used 11 personnel on 96% of their plays from this past season! In this single personnel grouping, they use a variety of formations; frequently bunching receivers, making the other side of the field accessible to them. They also utilize a lot of motion; bringing tight ends and wide receivers across the formation and...

Lions hire Bengals OC target Darrell Bevell

Lions hire Bengals OC target Darrell Bevell

Cincinnati is running out of good options at OC. So much for Darrell Bevell. On Wednesday, the Lions hired Bevell to be the team’s next offensive coordinator. He’s no longer an option for the Bengals, who reportedly had him “high” on their list of play-caller candidates. Bevell was unemployed this past season, but he was the offensive coordinator for two different NFL teams from 2006-2017. He started off with the Vikings, where he was instrumental in the MVP-caliber 2009 season that Brett Favre had just two years before he retired. Bevell then joined the Seahawks in 2011. He was...

Bengals mailbag: Draft positioning and coach congeniality

Does a new coach automatically mean that a quarterback will come in the draft? Is there a concern that some seasoned veterans could tune out a younger, unproven coach? Bengaldom is sitting on pins and needles at the moment, as the team is now past Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday without a large contingent of their coaching staff in place. The NFLPA Bowl, East-West Shrine Game, Senior Bowl and Scouting Combine are on the horizon, so the team will need to play a bit of catch-up in the prospect-vetting process. While fans seeming got what they asked for in a reported hiring of the...
