Zac Taylor’s start to his head coaching career has been one of the worst in NFL history

Zac Taylor’s start to his head coaching career has been one of the worst in NFL history

Sam Greene via Imagn Content Services, LLC It’s one of the worst the NFL has ever seen. It’s safe to say the Zac Taylor era has been a major disappointment so far. Since being hired by the Bengals in 2019, Taylor has endured the worst record by any NFL head coach over that span, winning just three of those games while tying in another. In fact, Taylor’s coaching record thus far is one of the worst in NFL history through a coach’s first 23 games, according to AP writer and former Bengals reporter Joe Reedy. Bad news for Zac Taylor when it comes to this list if the #Bengals...

Bengals vs. Browns snap count takeaways: D-line rotation sees more change

Bengals vs. Browns snap count takeaways: D-line rotation sees more change

Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via Depth all over the Bengals’ roster was put to the test on Sunday. There was no Joe Mixon, no William Jackson III, and at some point in the game, over half of the starting offensive line was out. It proved to be too much for the Cincinnati Bengals as they blew yet another lead, this time to the Cleveland Browns, who also had their fair share of injuries to deal with. Nobody wants to hear the injury excuses when a 1-5-1 record is staring at them, but they do provide us some context for this week’s snap counts. Let’s take a look at them from...

Drew Sample puts together solid performance against Cleveland

Drew Sample puts together solid performance against Cleveland

Photo by Ian Johnson/Icon Sportswire via Is the former second-round pick finally turning a corner? The Cincinnati Bengals received heavy criticism during the 2019 NFL Draft when they used a second-round selection on Washington tight end Drew Sample. Sample was mocked by some to go as late as the sixth round, but the Bengals felt Sample could eventually replace Tyler Eifert as their franchise tight end. Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, Sample delivered a big performance as he made five catches for 52 yards on six grabs all on six targets, all of which were single-game career-highs....

How Joe Burrow divided up the targets in Week 7

How Joe Burrow divided up the targets in Week 7

Kareem Elgazzar via Imagn Content Services, LLC Burrow relied heavily on his two star receivers in what may’ve been the best game of his young career. The Cincinnati Bengals lost a heart-breaking game against the Cleveland Browns. While they didn’t come away with a win, rookie quarterback Joe Burrow was absolutely electric, notching over 400 yards. It was Burrow’s first 400-yard performance of his career. Burrow’s only negative point was a first-quarter interception. He made up with that later in the game as he ended with three touchdown passes. Cincinnati eventually lost...

6 adds and 4 drops in fantasy football for Week 8

Photo by Justin Casterline/ Will you all just add Tee Higgins already so I can stop putting him in this week after week? Week 7 certainly was an interesting on for fantasy. There are certainly some budding stars that are earning bigger roles, and their are some players on a roll heading into a great matchup next week. Unfortunately, there are also some pretty disappointing showings that should lead you to rethink rostering these struggling players. Here are this week’s adds and drops: Adds JaMycal Hasty, running back, 49ers: It is super unfortunate that 49ers running backs keep going...

Bengals players defend Zac Taylor, but he must shoulder the blame

The offense was firing on all cylinders Sunday | Sam Greene via Imagn Content Services, LLC This time, it was the defense that let the Bengals down There is an old saying on the sea: “The captain goes down with the ship.” Ultimately, the captain of a ship is responsible for everything that happens on his ship, and for everyone who is on it. In much the same way, the head coach of a football team must take ultimate responsibility for everything that happens on his football team, even when that does not seem fair. Zac Taylor has taken a lot of heat over his play calling throughout the...

Tyler Boyd calls out Carlos Dunlap

Tyler Boyd calls out Carlos Dunlap

Jeff Dean via Imagn Content Services, LLC “Sucka s—t.” If you thought last year’s Cordy Glenn debacle was bad, it’s not holding a candle to what’s transpired this year with Carlos Dunlap. In recent weeks, Dunlap has voiced his frustrations with the Bengals coaching staff as he’s been used as a situational role player instead of the featured starter he’s been for much of his NFL career. There have also been reports that the Bengals have Dunlap on the trading block. Following the Bengals’ 37-34 loss to the Browns, Dunlap tweeted that he was selling his Cincinnati home....

Bengals have made bad NFL history in losses to Colts and Browns

Bengals have made bad NFL history in losses to Colts and Browns

Kareem Elgazzar, Cincinnati Enquirer via Imagn Content Services, LLC The last two weeks have been historically bad for the Bengals. All sorts of history was made during today’s Bengals vs. Browns shootout, a game that saw the road team escape with a last-second 37-34 victory. Bengals rookie quarterback Joe Burrow hit several passing milestones, which is a good piece of history to make. Unfortunately, the Bengals also made some bad history by losing to the Browns in the manner they did. By scoring 34 points and not punting once vs. Cleveland, Cincinnati became the first team in the...

Carlos Dunlap adds more gas to a dumpster fire of his creation

Sam Greene via Imagn Content Services, LLC Dunlap is as good as gone. Carlos Dunlap may not be officially done with the Cincinnati Bengals, but he’s doing his best to expedite the process. Dunlap’s borderline disgust with the Bengals’ coaching staff is beyond obvious at this point. Right after the Browns’ game-winning touchdown, he was seen arguing with coaches on the sideline. #Bengals pic.twitter.com/Yvzjs7lfx8— Lance McAlister (@LanceMcAlister) October 25, 2020 A fan who attended the game claims that Dunlap directed his anger at defensive coordinator Lou...

We are Bengals fans looking back at how Cincinnati managed to lose another game. On a positive note, we did get to watch one heck of a game.

Photo by Michael Reaves/ Was this the last game of Lou Anarumo’s stint with the Bengals? The Bengals don’t like to get swept by the Browns. That’s how people lose their jobs. With a little over a minute to go in the game, the Bengals gave their defense yet another lead to spoil. A tremendous game from rookie Joe Burrow was wasted and head coach Zac Taylor notched another loss on his young coaching career. The Bengals now sit at 1-5-1 and have some major decisions to make on the defensive side of the ball. Here are the winners and losers from Cincinnati’s 37-34 loss to...

Photo by Justin Casterline/ So far, Joe Burrow is having the greatest season a rookie QB has ever had in NFL history. Joe Burrow continues to have a rookie season for the ages, and he’s done so thanks to two big performances vs. his new in-state rival. When the Bengals and Browns faced off in Week 2, Burrow made NFL history by completing 37 passes, which is the most by a rookie quarterback in NFL history. He nearly topped that mark in the second matchup with the Browns, as he completed 35/47 passes for 406 yards and three scores with one pick while running for another score. In the...

Photo by Andy Lyons/ The Bengals lost yet another close game. The Bengals played in yet another close game and failed once again to close it out. Joe Burrow had an unlucky interception, but looked great apart from that one play. He had to play most of the game without his two best offensive linemen, but still reached the 400-yard mark for the first time in his career. A.J Green, Tyler Boyd, and Tee Higgins each had over 70 receiving yards. Baker Mayfield went off to a rough start, missing on his first five passing attempts. But he got on track right before half time and completed his...
