Zac Taylor Gives Strong Statement on Future With Bengals
Joe Burrow isn't the only member of the Cincinnati Bengals making strong statements about the future.
While Burrow recently told reporters that the Bengal's championship window "is my whole career," head coach Zac Taylor apparently wants to stay along for the ride.

Taylor, who is entering his fifth season as Cincinnati's head coach, is already the 10th-longest tenured HC in the NFL. He doesn't appear set on leaving anytime soon, however, saying that the Bengals are "gonna have to carry me out of here in a casket."
Taylor's enthusiasm isn't surprising given all the recent success he and Cincinnati have had together. The Bengals reached the Super Bowl during the 2021 season and narrowly lost the AFC Conference Championship Game last season, so they appear to be on the precipice of winning a championship. Taylor's quote also implies that he loves being in the team's building and coaching Burrow, who is credited with helping change the team's culture since his arrival in 2020.
Time will tell if Taylor and Burrow are able to build a dynasty together in Cincinnati. It won't be easy with Patrick Mahomes in the AFC for the foreseeable future, but if Taylor earns a ring or two he'll likely be with the Bengals for a long, long time.
