The Bengals today signed head coach Marvin Lewis to a two-year contract extension, running through the 2014 season.
Lewis has led the Bengals to the playoffs in two of the last three seasons, including 2011, and to three postseasons overall, with two AFC North Division championships.
Coming off a playoff finish last year, with a solid coaching staff and good young players, continuity at the top gives us our best chance to do well, said Bengals president Mike Brown. We are excited about the teams prospects and happy to have completed this process with Marvin before the 2012 preseason schedule begins.
Lewis is in his 10th season as Bengals head coach, already the most in franchise history. He ranks third in the NFL in longest current tenure with one team, behind only Philadelphias Andy Reid and New Englands Bill Belichick. The Bengals are one of only 10 teams, less than a third of the NFL, to have reached the playoffs twice in the last three years. They also are in a minority of teams (15) to have qualified for postseason three times in the last seven years.
The team we have for this year is as exciting and intriguing as any one Ive had, Lewis said. Our goal is to win the Super Bowl, nothing less, and its great to have this extension in place. We have a lot of work to do in order to maximize the potential we have, and its exciting to me to come work at it every day. (Wife) Peggy and I love living in Cincinnati, and we love the support our fans give us. Thanks to everyone who has helped make all this happen.

Twitter is one of my favorite tools as a fan and blogger. It allows me to keep up with players around the NFL, and sometimes even allows fans and players to interact on a more personal level than an autograph signing. That's why it pains me, to a small degree, that Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis has instituted a Twitter ban through training camp for all Bengals players.

2011 in a Nutshell: 9-7AFC 6th Seed – Lost Wildcard Round
Last year was pegged as a growing year for Cincinnati, a rookie quarterback, rookie wide receiver, new offensive co-ordinator and all of one month to install everything thanks to the lockout. After starting out 1-2, the Bengals went on a 5 game winning streak in October to have them in contention for the AFC North crown...
Joe Reedy of the Cincinnati Enquirer writes that Bengals QB Andy Daltons deep ball passing has been inconsistent during the first few days of Bengals training camp. I have an understanding of what my drop needs to be, the trajectory of the ball, Dalton said. Last year it was more of making sure I knew what I was doing. Reedy adds that Dalton and A.J. Green are on...
FOXSports.com fantasy football editors Ryan Fowler and Joel Beall paid a visit to Paul Brown Stadium on the first day of Cincinnati Bengals training camp last Friday. Their mission was to get a better idea of which players to target outside of A.J. Green in 2012. Who is the #2 receiver? Is this a RBBC? Is Jermaine Gresham worth starting? Do the players realize how big fantasy football...

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 9): Maybe too high at 9, but I love the QB and both coordinators.

The first thing you have to know about me is I’m a teacher. When the beginning of June comes I’ve got nothing but summer vacation on my mind. That means camping trips with the family, days at the pool with my boys and plenty of trips to Ohio to visit the folks. But even something as wonderful as summer vacation starts getting a little stale after awhile. However, there...
