  1. Meet the Coaches: Pollack Lines Up Posted 8 hours ago Geoff Hobson Editor Bengals.com Follow Me Blog a a Meet the new coach of the Bengals offensive line. Frank Pollack isn’t going to anoint his nine players just yet. But he is letting it be known that he wants them to have a nasty streak as long as, well, the Bengals offensive line. “You can’t go out there and be soft,” Pollack said last week as he ended his first month as the Bengals offensive line coach. “The D-lineman is going to rip your throat out. You better rip theirs out before they rip yours out. He’s got to have a little nasty streak in him. No question. It’s football. It’s not for everyone.” In his first video interview on Bengals.com with Voice of the Bengals Dan Hoard, Pollack talks about the first impressions of his players off the video and what he’s looking for in the draft. While it’s too early to get a read on how the Bengals are going to line up in the spring, he is intrigued by the athleticism of the incumbent tackles, Cedric Ogbuehi on the left and Jake Fisher on the right. Although Tyron Smith, Pollack’s Pro Bowl left tackle in Dallas, is about 15 pounds heavier than Ogbuehi, it’s going to be interesting to see if Pollack uses the same attacking style with Ogbuehi that he used with Smith. If there’s one word that keeps coming up with Pollack, an eight-year veteran of the NFL in the 1990s, it is “aggressive.” It’s also, “smart.” And he’s got eight Pro Bowl selections and All-Pro berths from the last three seasons in Dallas as proof when he was leading the Cowboys offensive line to back-to-back No. 2 run rankings in the NFL. “You have to be smart enough to learn. You have to be a smart enough guy to adjust,” Pollack told Hoard. “You have to be a smart enough guy (when) he’s on the field by himself to figure out some things and adjustments on his own without me being next to him all the time. It’s hard playing this game. You have to have some nasty to you, some toughness. Mental toughness more than physical toughness. “I’ve told guys I’ve coached I’m not looking for five drunk frat guys to go out there and get in a bar fight out there. Those are a dime dozen. I look for guys to execute play in and play out and have the mental and physical toughness to do that and when the picture changes they don’t bat an eye and execute the next play. It’s hard to do. That’s why they get paid the big bucks and it’s why only a smidgeon of the world’s population can do it.” For Pollack, it seems to get back to toughness. Psychological or physical. Maybe that’s why center Russell Bodine has caught Pollack’s eye on film. Bodine, a four-year starter since the Bengals traded up to get him in the fourth round of the 2014 draft, heads into free agency after an up-and-down season like the rest of the line. But Pollack likes his nasty streak, as well as his interview of Bodine at the scouting combine the year he was drafted. He also noticed the aggressive mind-sets of Alex Redmond and Christian Westerman, guards in their second NFL seasons that played well in the final two games during their most extensive action as pros. “They’re fun to watch,” said Pollack after the video interview. “They play with that young, energetic buzz on the field. They’ve got a lot of stuff to clean up technically, but they’ve got some nasty in them. I enjoyed watching that.” Pollack also noted how left guard Clint Boling moved out to left tackle to replace the injured Ogbuehi in the last two games. It doesn’t sound like they’ll move Boling permanently, but his first two NFL starts out there showed the leadership of the most senior man on their line. The Bengals would like to re-sign right tackle Andre Smith, but before they do Boling’s eight seasons lead the group. “He obviously put it on tape that he can play it,” Pollack said. “I don’t know if that’s long term his best position, but he’s a guy that’s smart and has the ability to kind of move around the line where you need him, which is impressive.”
  2. Coaching Staff Changes

    Bengals just finished interviewing Harlod Goodwin and are ,expected to make their choose ,for who is going to replaces paul alexander this week.
  3. Coaching Staff Changes

    Bengals just finished interviewing jim harding Utah's offensive line coach.
  4. Coaching Staff Changes

    Bengals might stay in house and give jim mcnally offensive line coach position.
  5. Coaching Staff Changes

    Looks like Austin is close to signing a deal to be the defensive coordinator in cincinnati.
  6. Coaching Staff Changes

    Right now my gut feeling is the Bengals, will probably give the job to kevin coyle.
  7. Coaching Staff Changes

    Bengals are going to interview vic fangio on Tuesday according to chicago Tribune.
  8. there where other report's from peter king and others that marvin lewis is ether looking for another head coach position or a front office job. After today's game it might be time for marvin to retire and take a front office somewhere,if not in cincinnati then somewhere else.
  9. this just goes to show you that there are different set of rules for shittburgh then there are for the rest the NFL,because the saints got in trouble for stuff like this Sean Payton suspended for 1 year and Greg Williams was suspended for 2 years.They put a bounty on burfict and they are admitting it,where hell is NFL and roger goodell.
  10. Vince Williams brags about injuring joe mixon on twitter. https://www.cincyjungle.com/2017/12/12/16768390/vince-williams-makes-fun-of-joe-mixon-having-concussion-Stealers-bengals
  11. exactly,which is one of the reason the Stealers organization never get in trouble because of their friend's in media and in front office.
  12. Zampese Out

    it wasn't so much that Ken zampese was bad but the coeyell offense should have never been brought back Cincinnati knowing that it did not play to Andy dalton strength's. zampese should have been give the job when Carson was still here,because his offense better suited Carson then it did Andy dalton.I don't know if bill lazor is the answer but he dose from a joe gibbs and mike holmgren background.
  13. Cut/waived/signed

    Sojourn Shelton could be a steal.
  14. John ross hurt

    the play in which john ross was injured on.
  15. fuck the NFL it has really become joke,thanks to the talking head's in the media and roger goodell.
