Zac Taylor considered giving up play-calling to Brian Callahan in 2024

Certainly, the Cincinnati Bengals’ offense, led by the formidable Joe Burrow and a talented roster, presents a considerable challenge for opposing defenses. Over his four seasons with the Bengals, Burrow has guided them to two AFC Championship games and one Super Bowl, potentially earning him recognition in the form of a statue outside Paycor Stadium.

Nevertheless, the journey has not been without its challenges. There were instances when, despite the abundance of talent, the Bengals’ offense struggled to make significant headway. In such situations, fans often voiced the sentiment that “Zac Taylor needs to give up play-calling!”

Recent speculation raises questions about whether Taylor would have entertained the idea of relinquishing play-calling duties if Brian Callahan had stayed with the Bengals for the 2024 season. According to former Bengals offensive lineman and current radio color commentator Dave Lapham, there were indeed considerations in that direction.

Lapham shared on 700 WLW with Lance McAlister that Taylor had contemplated the possibility of handing over play-calling responsibilities to Callahan. However, this potential shift in dynamics changed when Callahan departed from the team. Lapham highlighted the democratic decision-making nature within the Bengals organization, where every voice holds significance. He pointed out that Dan Pitcher’s influence grew, leading to his current notable role.

While it is probable that Taylor will continue to call plays in the upcoming season, this revelation sparks speculation about the evolving dynamics and potential shifts in power within the coaching staff in the coming years, with Pitcher gaining prominence.
