This is a dreary, tedious, and monotonous exercise, but it will be well worth it when Marvin signs a new contract.

A triple entry from ol' reliable.

NFL hot seat rankings: Um, it seems Giants' Ben McAdoo in increasingly serious jeopardy
Nate Davis - USA TODAY Sports - 7:10 p.m. ET Nov. 7, 2017 | Updated 7:11 p.m. ET Nov. 7, 2017

Every NFL team is now at least halfway through its season, meaning several coaches are now entering the final stretch of their current employment. Based on what we saw last Sunday, the end may be nearer than eight weeks for some. ...

4. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: Another virtual no-show from his team was punctuated by its best player, WR A.J. Green, uncharacteristically losing his poise after apparently being goaded by feisty Jacksonville Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey. Lack of discipline has been par for the course for Lewis' Bengals for years, but it's never gone so viral as to infect even Green into earning an ejection. Last week: 4

NFL hot seat rankings: Browns' Hue Jackson finishes another winless first half
Nate Davis - USA TODAY Sports - 6:49 p.m. ET Oct. 31, 2017

The NFL season has reached its midpoint, with all 32 head coaches surviving. Nine weeks from now, several likely will be kicked off the island. But with so few clubs completely devoid of playoff aspirations at this juncture, the pink slips will apparently wait. ...

4. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: He's won three of four, including a quality defeat of the Buffalo Bills in Week 5. But now the Bengals are set to hit the road against three quality opponents (Jacksonville Jaguars, Tennessee Titans, Denver Broncos), a stretch that could determine the outcome of their season and Lewis' fate. Last week: 4

NFL hot seat rankings: Speculation reaches 'fever pitch' for Colts' Chuck Pagano
Nate Davis, USA TODAY Sports Published 3:45 p.m. ET Oct. 24, 2017 | Updated 11:55 a.m. ET Oct. 25, 2017

Halloween is drawing near, apropos given the dread that's inevitably growing for some NFL head coaches. Though parity grips the league as strongly as it ever has, there are some clubs that are pulling away from the pack ... at least in the context of cementing top-five draft picks. Sadly, those teams are currently led by dead men walking. Zombie costumes, anyone? ...

4. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: After regaining competitive form over the last month, the Bengals regressed badly Sunday. LB Vontaze Burfict reverted to his dirty tactics. Again. QB Andy Dalton didn't play well in a big game. Again. The Bengals got steamrolled by the Pittsburgh Steelers. Again. And faced with media questions about his game management and his club's faceplant, Lewis got testy with reporters and stormed out of a news conference. Again. The question is whether owner Mike Brown wants to see this tired story in 2018. Again. Last week: 3

NFL coaches on the hot seat: Marvin Lewis, Dirk Koetter and 10 more coaches in danger of being fired
Geoffrey C. Arnold - The Oregonian/OregonLive - November 08, 2017 at 11:00 AM | Updated November 08, 2017 at 12:01 PM

Heat check: Rapidly increasing

Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals


They sit at 3-5 and aren't going to catch front-running Pittsburgh in the AFC North. They need to go on a run in the second half, but they've given no indication they're capable of stringing together wins. Even if they miraculously earn a playoff berth, Lewis has never won a playoff game during his career in Cincinnati.

NFL Insiders predict: Week 10 upsets, coaching hot seat, more
ESPN NFL Insiders - Nov 8, 2017

Our NFL Insiders predict Week 10's biggest upsets, fantasy flops and sleepers. Plus: Can the Rams really top the Seahawks in the NFC West? Which coach should be most concerned about keeping his job? And what was the most memorable play of the first half? ...

Outside of Hue Jackson and Chuck Pagano -- who seem to perpetually be on the hot seat -- which NFL coach should be in the most trouble?

[Aaron Schatz, editor-in-chief of Football Outsiders:]: Marvin Lewis, Bengals. Cincinnati is completely stagnant. The Bengals held on to Lewis through an entire success cycle, and are now at a down point. This would be a good time to bring on a head coach who can develop young offensive players, work with the offensive line and rebuild the offense around Joe Mixon and John Ross.

For Mike Brown, there's never a good time to fire Marvin Lewis, and there are certainly no miracles in store.

Daugherty again?!


Doc: Cincinnati Bengals' coach Marvin Lewis, QB Andy Dalton are tied at pretty good
Paul Daugherty - Cincinnati Enquirer - 9:31 a.m. ET Nov. 17, 2017 | Updated 9:47 a.m. ET Nov. 17, 2017

They’re not making the playoffs. They’re longshots to get to .500. In their last 26 games, including the playoff debacle, they’re 9-16-1. Barring a big turnaround, Lewis very likely won’t be the coach next year. He and Dalton are tied at the Pretty Good. If you’re going to change the coach, why not at least consider changing the quarterback? Why not use the last seven games as a laboratory? Use them the way a losing baseball team uses September. Bad seasons can be good opportunities.


https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/nfl/bengals/2017/11/17/doc-cincinnati-bengals-coach-marvin-lewis-qb-andy-dalton-aj-mccarron-experiment/873741001/


Mike Brown is not going to change the coach, so you know he won't want that same coach to change the quarterback.

Are my eyes playing tricks on me, or is Doc trying to talk sense to Bengals management? Like they would even consider such a thing. Why, changing coaches and quarterbacks would disrupt all that precious continuity they've worked so hard to generate. A couple of other scribes over at the Enquirer should fill Doc in. Oh, never mind. They have Marvin on the hot seat, too.

One quick question - if mikey wants to maintain continuity by making no changes does this mean the negative momentum that started in the playoff disaster in Jan 2016 will continue and even pick up speed to the downside ?

I'll tell you what. Continually melting down against your main division rival in the second half of games is enough to get a head coach fired. Unless you coach for Mike Brown.

I'm typing this while the Bungs still hold a 17-10 third quarter lead in the Week 13 home game against the Stoolers.

Mile Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.

And... they lose on a field goal as time expires.

And.. nothing else will change. Marvin Lewis will remain head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals.

This is why we hate Mike Brown, folks. In case you needed any reminders. Maybe some of you do, as you think that Marvin is really on the hot seat, in-season or after-season.

Save all of your disgust for Mike Brown.

Negative Momentum

No score for this post
December 5 2017, 10:09 AM 

The negative momentum is now in full force. After last nite's debacle I would not be surprised to see the bungs lose to Chi as all hopes of playoffs are gone. And then they could lose out for a robust 5-11 and that will carry over to next year. Will the bungs be able to get up for post season workouts and how many will show up? If giggles remains look for an increase in negative momentum. This is beginning to show up in the attendance as there were 10000 empty seats. mikey has said he could make money if only 40000 buy tickets. We could very well be staring down the gun barrel of a new lost decade.

Also don't expect big things from mikey in the draft. He was lucky a few years ago but that luck is gone. He likes "skill" players the best and is not known for drafting to fit team needs.

The bungs fielded a roster of junior varsity players on the OL, over-rated clowns at DB and professional losers, like Burfict, at too many other positions.

So once again, we had a Mike Brown team getting beat because of inferior talent. The Marvin obsession still reeks of denialism.

I hope Marvin does move on, just because it will be even more fun to watch the bungs lose by 23 instead of 3.

In any event, it's been another fun year to mock the Mikey enablers. May the Agony of the Sheep endure forever.

Hey, Hook is back. Feels like old times, LOL.

Freeze, you couldn't be more right about the self-parody. It feels too perfect, like it was rigged or something. Not that I really believe that, but how many times can you execute a perfect pratfall?

Bungleistic, yeah, I saw that. Here's the whole thing, for posterity.

Doc: Is this the game that ended an era?

Paul Daugherty - Cincinnati Enquirer - Published 3:43 a.m. ET Dec. 5, 2017 | Updated 1:39 p.m. ET Dec. 5, 2017

Déjà vu, Groundhog Day, same old story, same old song, and dance. The body count rose to disconcerting levels until the game became uncomfortable to watch. Two men left the field on gurneys, others limped away, still more saw a heaven's worth of stars.

And Pittsburgh won. The Steelers beat the Bengals, again, the Cincinnati futility running now like an unbridled thoroughbred. Or, if you prefer, like JuJu Smith-Schuster, Steelers wideout, going absolutely Burfict on Vontaze, late in the game.

In a month, we might look back at Pittsburgh 23, Cincinnati 20 as the game that ended an era. Fan patience thinned awhile go, and there is some indication the feeling is becoming mutual at PBS. To win anything in Cincinnati, you have to beat Pittsburgh. The Bengals have spent half a century leaping at that bar. And smashing their heads on it.

Monday night was, sadly, more of the same. The Bengals played a great first half. Andy Dalton attacked a weak Steelers secondary whose members were so paranoid about being whipped deep, they played two time zones off the ball. Dalton is at his Good Andy best when he has time and tempo, throwing 12- and 15-yard completions.

The defense shut out the Steelers until the last play of the half. The Bengals went into the locker room up 17-3 and darned if some of us didn't believe this time would be different. The Bengals played with a purpose that bordered on arrogance, which is exactly the approach needed to beat Pittsburgh.

But this supposed rivalry is rarely about the Bengals overcoming. It's about dumb penalties, missed chances and a mental hammer that bops them every time. The Bengals don't need better players to beat Pittsburgh. They need a séance, six hypnotists and an exorcist.

"We have a no-blink group," Mike Tomlin noted after the game. He was right about that. Pittsburgh lost its best defensive player, Ryan Shazier, to an injury so frightening Tomlin refused to talk about it. Pittsburgh had a kickoff return TD called back.

The Steelers still trailed by 10 at the beginning of the 4th quarter. By the end of the 4th quarter, Ben Roethlisberger was connecting with receivers while filing his nails and checking his text messages. Pittsburgh's winning field goal drive was an exercise in inevitability. The Steelers knew the Steelers would win. The Bengals did, too.

We could discuss the particulars, but why bother? The Bengals are not the Steelers. I say this with all due respect and even a little compassion. They're not a no-blink group. They rarely have been.

"We needed to make critical plays at critical moments and we didn't do it," Marvin Lewis said. He was right, technically, but that dodges the heart of it. When you lose as often to the Steelers as the Bengals have " with comparable talent most years" it's not just about making critical plays. It's about knowing you will make critical plays.

You think the Bengals managed to keep their heads. Then you see 13 penalties, for 173 yards. You think they played with confidence. Then you see Roethlisberger's numbers in the 4th quarter: Thirteen-for-19, 131 yards and a touchdown. You note the Bengals had zero first downs that quarter and controlled the ball just three minutes.

"We definitely took our foot off their neck," linebacker Kevin Minter said, before adding, "Ben Roethlisberger is, you know, Ben Roethlisberger."

Andy Dalton in the first half: 173 passing yards, two TDs and a rating of 120.4. Dalton in the second half: 5-for-13 for 61 yards. At home.

Meantime, the carnage was real. Shazier, neck and back injury. Burfict, head injury. Joe Mixon, concussion. Pacman Jones, groin injury. Everyone else was falling on swords. The violence went from acceptable to unsettling to hard to watch.

The league can't do much more to tame the savagery. It's up to players to self-police. The helmet-to-helmet crashes practiced Monday by Smith-Schuster, George Iloka and others can't be explained away as "just football." It's too senseless and deliberate for that.

The Bengals have nine toes out the January door. They've had an underachieving season for the second year in a row. Apathy is undefeated around here. Only 56,000 (10,000 short of PBS capacity) showed up. Good things aren't happening.

The players have talked all year about looking in the proverbial mirror for answers. It's time for ownership to do the same. The results are the same, the madness varies only slightly Steelers Week! to Steelers Week! The fans have seen enough.

As Elvis Costello sang, "I used to be disgusted. Now I try to be amused."

Keep your sense of humor out there. Four games to go.

https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/nfl/bengals/2017/12/05/cincinnati-bengals-loss-pittsburgh-steelers-end-marvin-lewis-era/108325332/


Oh, come on. Doc will look back on this in a few years like he looks back on the jumbo bath towels that brought in with much fanfare around the year 2000> Remember when we thought Marvin Lewis might move on?

Oh yeah, Doc. Vaguely. Very vaguely.

Turns out, though, that he gave himself an out. From his Morning Line blog:

Of course, there is a chance that Marvin will retire, that he and ownership will mutually agree to part ways. That’d be my guess. The partnership has been too amicable and semi-successful to end in an undignified heap.


https://www.cincinnati.com/story/sports/blogs/daugherty-blog/2017/12/05/morning-line-125/108329530/


Not gonna happen. Geesh. There's been a torrent of hot seat/retirement nonsense lately coming from the Enquirer. It's become too tedious to track it all.

I read where Marvin said "I was hired to win championships. I didn't do that". I think this now lends more credence that Marvin might not be HC for the bungs next year. Whether mikey kicks him upstairs where we all know that's where he belongs and brings in a new HC - anyone's guess. If mikey were serious about competing he'd do that but at any rate the odds increased to 50% that giggles might not be HC after this year. The wildcard is how serious is mikey about competing.

Has it really been four weeks since we last gave a listen to ol' relaible? I guess it has. Shall we go with four more por favor?

NFL hot seat rankings: Who's next to follow Ben McAdoo to unemployment line?
Nate Davis - USA TODAY Sports - 7:52 p.m. ET Dec. 5, 2017

In memory of Ben McAdoo's one-plus seasons at the controls for the New York Giants, let's reflect back to what we wrote about him when he landed on our hot seat tracker after Week 1:

"He had a strong maiden voyage in 2016, leading New York back to the playoffs. But the weather can change quickly in New York, and McAdoo's offense, which lacked injured WR Odell Beckham Jr. on Sunday night, was still shockingly inept against a middling Dallas Cowboys D. The Giants better improve quickly, or the tabloids will be calling for McAdoo's newly coiffed head soon enough."

Prescient. Disregard, "um," such wisdom at your peril.

And, for what it's worth, we commend Giants ownership for canning McAdoo, despite his run of 28 consecutive regular-season starts under the headset — the streak balloons to 29 if you count New York's blowout playoff loss in January — to take an honest look at interim replacement Steve Spagnuolo (a Geno-esque 10-38 in three seasons as head coach of the Rams).

Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings:

3. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: Did you watch Monday night's come-from-ahead loss, which Cincinnati led 17-0 in the first half? Quintessential Lewis Bengals — 13 penalties for 173 yards, which showcased rampant undisciplined play, dirty hits and (most memorably) CB William Jackson taking a hands-off approach that allowed Steelers RB Le'Veon Bell to tightrope into the end zone for Pittsburgh's first TD. It was a performance that may keep Cincinnati out of postseason and could finally cost Lewis his job for this perpetually underperforming outfit. Last week: 6

NFL hot seat rankings: It only looks worse for Giants' Ben McAdoo, Browns' Hue Jackson
Nate Davis - USA TODAY Sports - 7:55 p.m. ET Nov. 28, 2017

As the NFL regular season winds down, certain teams are still trying alternative plans at quarterback and coordinator among other panic-button moves. Maybe some will bear desired fruit, but others seem indicative of preliminary death throes for some coaching staffs.

Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings:

6. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: Look who's only one game out of the AFC's second wild-card spot. But look whose team still doesn't play particularly well against opponents not based in Northeast Ohio. Yep, same guy who still doesn't have a contract for 2018. Sorry, Marvin. Last week: 6

NFL hot seat rankings: Could Broncos' Vance Joseph be one and done in Denver?
Nate Davis - USA TODAY Sports - 5:33 p.m. ET Nov. 21, 2017

Thanksgiving is here, and NFL head coaches can be thankful that their 32-man fraternity remains intact this deep into the season. Meanwhile, sincerest Holiday wishes to Mike McCoy, the offensive coordinator who unfairly took the fall Monday for Denver's dreadful season. (Raiders defensive coordinator Ken Norton's dismissal Tuesday was frankly less surprising.) We'd wager McCoy — and probably Norton — will land upright soon enough and will surely have plenty of company looking for work in a few weeks.

Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings:

6. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: He has no contract beyond this year, but Cincy's season is entering a fascinating phase. The Bengals aren't playing particularly well, even even after beating Joseph's Broncos in Denver, but they're only a game out of the AFC's second wild-card spot. It wouldn't take much to make a playoff push, though it's also hard to believe Cincinnati could do any significant postseason damage in such a top-heavy conference. Last week: 3

NFL hot seat rankings: Can Giants' Ben McAdoo survive 'inexcusable and frustrating' year?
Nate Davis - USA TODAY Sports - 8:59 p.m. ET Nov. 14, 2017

It's sufficiently deep into the NFL season that questions about struggling coaches are now filtering up to sometimes responsive ownership. Big decisions in many cities are now less than two months away.

Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings:

3. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: A week after WR A.J. Green temporarily lost his mind, the Bengals' typical lack of discipline was on display again Sunday, when LB Vontaze Burfict got himself tossed in the first half of a game Cincinnati would go on to lose by four points. What's that definition of insanity again? Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results? Yup. Last week: 4

Time to hear again from the former employer of Don Banks, a primary inspiration for this thread. The new transgressor? See: Feldman, Jacob.


NFL Coach Hot Seats: McAdoo Is Out, Who Could Be Next?
Jacob Feldman - Sports Illustrated MMQB - December 05, 2017

KEEP AN EYE ON

Marvin Lewis (123-110 in Cincinnati): The Bengals seem destined to finish at or around .500 this year, and Lewis’s contract expires at the end of the season. Could Vontaze Burfict’s myriad fiascos and Andy Dalton’s stalled development (he’s currently 23rd in QBR) be enough to convince Mike Brown to move on from the league’s second-longest tenured coach? Or will Lewis get a chance to improve on his 0-7 playoff record? (Or will Lewis make the decision for Brown by retiring at season’s end?)

To answer the questions in order: no, no, and no. Mike Brown will never fire or otherwise let go of Marvin Lewis. It doesn't even matter if Marvin Lewis ever wins a plyoff game. And Marvin Lewis is not retiring. That's a silly rumor based on false hope.

With all that said as I pointed out on another thread - it boils down to how bad mikey wants to win and compete for a championship. My feeling is if he keeps Lewis than were stuck with what we've got for an indeterminate of time. As long as the tailgaters are happy than mikey ...is happy.

It's more than just how badly Mikey wants to win. Mikey wants to win HIS way. That's the real reason he's kept Marvin so long and that's the real reason we all have zero faith he'd be replaced with anyone any good.

Since Georgia State got a FBS football program, it's been interesting because to troll the Georgia Southern messageboards (State vs. Southern-- the rivalry neither side wants to admit to being a rivalry...) because the history of that program presents a distinct identity. Southern has almost always been an option-based school (for e.g., Army's current coach comes from the GS tree and Army has literally thrown only 60 passes all year), but there have been a couple of times where the program has deviated (unsuccessfully).

Non-GS fans/GS-haters like to rag on the option and say it only works to get a program "to a certain level" and that sure, it's all fine for a FCS program but it will never produce a FBS power. For some of the Southern alumni, this raises their dander and whenever the school is looking for a new coach (such as they were this year), they INSIST the school find someone that will run the option. Because you see, it's not just about Southern winning games, it's about proving to all those naysayers that the Southern way is the right way, !*#dammit.

Mike Brown is a Georgia Southern fan minus six national FCS titles. His worst nightmare is not dying without the Bengals winning anything. His worst nightmare is somehow not having the Bengals anymore and watching another owner take them to the promised land running the team in a completely different fashion (more scouts, feister coach, etc. etc.).

And sadly for Bengals fans, there's no sign any Rocky Wirtzes are going to emerge from this family tree.

Yeah--I can't see Kevin "Katie" Blackburn being a "Rocky" type. Could you? She defends her father at every chance she gets and makes up the same dumb excuses/explanations.

Or does anybody not remember the "Do you know how hard it is to be an NFL Owner?!?!?!?!!?" Debacle with fans?
