The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / Why Zac Taylor needs to be fired, NOW!!!!

Why Zac Taylor needs to be fired, NOW!!!!

It's time for Zac Taylor to go

Ok I thought firing Marvin Lewis was the right thing to do a couple of years ago, and it was. At the time I said it though I always followed up with “Don’t be surprised if the guy they pick is even worse!” The Bengals coaching search somehow settled on a guy that was a quarterback’s coach for the Rams and who had nothing close to a resume of being an NFL head coach. Now I do not care about his age, the fact is he was not and is not ready to be a head coach! He is soft and that has translated to his team being soft and undisciplined. Yesterday’s loss to the Dolphins was a compilation of everything that is wrong with this team.

No Accountability

Tyler Boyd was ejected at the end of the first half after an altercation with Dolphins corner Xavien Howard, which led to the Bengals getting a 15-yard penalty. That made a 38-yard field goal attempt turn into a 53-yard field goal attempt, which of course Randy Bullock then missed. Now I know that we are all still trying to figure out why the Bengals on off-setting penalties were moved back 15 yards, but it doesn’t matter. The fact is if Boyd controls his emotions there the Bengals probably pick up 3 points and maybe go into halftime with some much-needed momentum. Instead, as the Bengals often do, they promptly gave up a drive at the end of the half that ended up in a Dolphins field goal and Miami captured the momentum.

Mike Thomas was flagged twice for personal fouls he committed against the Dolphins punt returner Jakeem Grant. Somehow, even after those two personal fouls, Thomas was still allowed into the game on special teams. Taylor did nothing about it. Come on Zac! Bench his ass! No accountability for the discipline of the team is taken by the players or the coaches and it led to a 4th quarter bench-clearing which was led by Dolphins head coach Brian Flores who walked towards the Bengals sideline, upset with how the Bengals were playing.

See Flores is a man and his team is hard-nosed just like him, and he had enough by this point. Now you figure with Boyd tossed late in half number one the Bengals would get a little pumped up and play with some emotion? No, they did not. After Flores challenged the Bengal’s manhood, the Bengals tucked their tails between their legs and finished taking their asswhoopin like good little boys. You play the way you are coached and yesterday was a perfect example of this. The Dolphins are coached by a grown man and the Bengals by a little boy.

Adjustments, what are adjustments?

The Bengals controlled the first half with an assortment of runs and screen passes, the problem was once Miami adjusted to it the Bengals had nothing to counter with as the boy wonder who coaches the Bengals had nothing else. Miami dominated the game in the second half, and the Bengal’s offense finished the game with just 12 first downs.

Does Zac need more time?

If you are a Bengal’s fan that is defending Taylor, well then you are a moron. Time? Brian Flores inherited a worse roster last year and after starting 0-7 just like Taylor, Flores has since gone 13-8 and the Dolphins are 8-4 tis year. What’s the difference? That’s easy Taylor is soft, his coaching staff is in over their heads, the front office is a joke, and no accountability exists anywhere in the Bengals organization.

Off-season mistakes

These are easy. Outside of Vonn Bell, the Bengal’s spending was not that of a well-run organization. A.J. Green should not have gotten a franchise tag and Bobby Hart should NOT have been re-signed. Those are just the easiest two. The money spent on Green and Hart should have been spent on the best offensive linemen in free agency, and it wasn’t. The Bengals have eight full-time scouts when real teams have more than three times that amount.

Make Darrin Simmons the Head Coach right now!

Not saying he is the long-term answer but he is the ONLY good coach on this staff! Simmons’ special teams unit has been the only positive during this long and miserable season.

Will Taylor be fired?

Who knows? The owner, Mike Brown, doesn’t really give two shits what the fans think, and overall the Brown family is going to run the team the way they want to run it. The only saving grace is fans are excited because of Joe Burrow, but if Taylor returns for another season with the current staff in place, it won’t matter how good Burrow is. The Bengals will still be destined to lose.
