Bengals coach throws support behind Andy Dalton

Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis again threw support behind quarterback Andy Dalton as their starter in 2015. What else could Lewis say, the Bengals have no other options on their roster and the NFL Draft is considered weak on quarterback prospects. Under Lewis the Bengals have been incredably stable at quarterback going from Jon Kitna to Carson Palmer and now Dalton. “Fortunately...

Is simply making the playoffs all that is required for Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis to stay employed? Is that how low the bar is for one of the most pathetic franchises in the NFL? Lewis has now coached the Bengals for 12 years. He’s made the playoffs in six of those seasons, five of which have come in the last six years. But in all six cases, he has lost on wild...

Cincinnati Bengals: It’s Time to Finally Fire Marvin Lewis

Other than enjoying Skyline Chili, I have no allegiance to the Queen City. That said, I was a constant critic of Cincinnati’s baseball manager, who was rightly fired after another postseason choke job in October 2013. Therefore, to be fair, like last year on this very weekend, I see the same things wrong with the city’s football coach. I believe the Cincinnati Bengals should...
