  Another season is spiraling out of control in Cincinnati and the long-suffering fans are left to suffer once again. The team is in the middle of a four-game losing streak. Direction has been lost. Hope has disappeared. So what’s next? If it were me, I’d start making plans to move Marvin Lewis upstairs. Think about it. There’s no denying that the overall talent on the Bengals roster has improved significantly with Lewis around. Last draft received an “A” grade from most analysts. The one before that brought two Pro Bowlers, A.J. Green and Andy Dalton. No one would be better equipped to navigate all the crazy nuances of Mike Brown’s ownership and still acquire considerable talent like Lewis. Lewis could be Cincinnati’s version of Ozzie Newsome, an evaluator who knows what it takes to win in the AFC North and keeps acquiring the pieces. On the field, Lewis has had his shortcomings. Teams have underachieved. Losing streaks have lingered longer than they should have. But there’s no doubt that the Bengals roster is in much better shape than when he first showed up. And for that reason, the Bengals should keep Lewis around when the season ends. They just need to move him upstairs.
