Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis and Jets head coach Rex Ryan know one another from their days with the Ravens.

Lewis called Ryan on Friday morning to ask him to not use the wildcat during last night’s game.   I’m not sure if Lewis made the request because quarterback Tim Tebow had a rushing touchdown in Cincinnati two years ago when he was with the Broncos.  But none the less, Lewis made the request.

“Ryan received a call at 7 in the morning the day before the game from Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, who was on the same staff with Ryan in Baltimore, with a plea: Don’t run the Wildcat with Tebow,” reported to the New York Daily News.

While Tebow didn’t have a great game throwing the ball, he was effective on the ground with four carries for 34 yards.  Maybe that’s why Lewis asked Ryan to not use the wildcat.

Mixed bag for Bengals in opener

CINCINNATI - For starters, four Bengals starters got hurt. Preseason football is just the worst.
