Bengals are ready to make a bold move:

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/25731343/cincinnati-bengals-hope-hire-rams-zac-taylor-head-coach

I have no idea if this will pan out, but man, this is great news. Thankfully no Hue Jackson. A clean break from the past, and this is what we need. Of course, only time will tell if this was the right move. But surely hanging on to the past (Hue Jackson) was not.

he was the offensive coordinator for uc under tubberville.  they averaged under twenty points per game.  at least he's older than the players i suppose

I don't think they cheat any more than Alabama.  Or any of the the four playoff teams.  Or OSU.  Or FSU who suck now but still cheat.  Or even Maryland who really, really suck but are corrupt as hell.  If I were to make a list of top ten biggest asshole coaches, Saban wouldn't make the top ten.



I would LOVE to see your list!

I don't know which one was worse: the Super Bowl game, the half time show starring Maroon 5 and co-horts, or the Super Bowl ads. Wow, just a snooze fest all around.

It was pretty dire.

If you're like the 1% of the population that is into geeky football strategy, you probably have to admire the way Belichek made the game so boring by shutting down the Rams so easily and thoroughly that it wasn't even exciting to watch because no one on defense even made a big play, they just had to do what they were supposed to.

For everyone else yeah, there was nothing good about that.  Boring game, boring ads, really boringly awful halftime show.  Gurley and Brady mostly did nothing.  Even the weather was not exciting.

And considering Goff's play yesterday (whose position coach Zac Taylor will be the Bengals' new head coach), I'm surely not the only one who is skeptical about this hire. But then again, how much worse could it be after 16 years of Marvin Lewis...

Goff had a very bad night and I don't think you can draw any conclusions on whether that was Zac Taylor's responsibility.  If Goff threw 5 touchdowns for 400 yards, how much credit would you give Taylor?  If you're worried about anything, it should be his inexperience, him riding McVay's coat tails, and that the Bengals put their faith in him.
