The honeymoon is over if you’re a Cincinnati Bengals fan.
Fans of the Cincinnati Bengals are well aware of the fact that Zac Taylor is fresh off of his third draft as the team’s head coach. With just six total wins in his first two years on the sidelines, there can be no more excuses. He has to have a big jump in wins and losses to keep his job.
There has been plenty of chatter at the end of Taylor’s first two seasons about Cincinnati moving on from him, but that has come mostly from fans. Fortunately, if you’re Taylor, the Bengals have a long history of giving too much time to underperforming coaches.
That’s right. This isn’t baseball. Rebuilds don’t take eight years in the NFL. Keep in mind the fact that the San Francisco 49ers went from 4-12 to the Super Bowl in one year. That’s one reason the honeymoon should be over. Here are three others that support the theory that Taylor’s seat should be warming slightly.
