Of course this is a repeat point. But however you question the validity of Marvin's winning record, it deserves perspective that he accomplished it with Mike Brown rosters.

Even on a board with this name, there still seems to be an expectation that the Bungs are supposed to win.

When they were at their supposed talent zenith last year, they still had the equvalent of Turk Schonert at QB,dogmeat at center,league headcase rejects at linebacker and db, and an assortman of average at best other players.

Mikey's ESPN subscription helped get AJ Green on the roster and not much else. It was always a myth spread by the Bungle PR machine and gobbled up by the Sheep that last year's roster was loaded.

They lost a decent right tackle and replaced him with a large downgrade. The DL doesn't overachieve as much and the other players retained their average or dogmeat status.

With all that, they've got a good chance to finish at about a break even record and an outside chance to reach the playoffs

That's overachievement in Bungleland once again. This train wreck should never have been taken seriously.

Mikey and his enabling Sheep deserve all the scorn they can get. Heck, in a twisted way they may want it, but that's a PsychoMedical topic.

May the Agony of the Sheep endure forever.

Thanks for the heads-up from WCB. Latest from Stephen A. Smith is here. Start viewing around the 6:00 mark:



He says something about being glad that the City of Cincinnati is lately interested in what he has to say. Yet there is still the same old omission of not calling out Mike Brown. Is he prohibited from doing so? Maybe he does the next best thing by claiming solidarity with the people of Cincinnati.

Whatever it is, this "Marvin Lewis should be fired" rant is more entertaining than most, and they're all worth watching.

Absolutely right, Storm. I was going to mention that but neglected to. Stephen A. Smith goes nuts because Marvin is still around after 14 years. By now he should realize that there's an underlying reason for the coach's longevity.

Around here we know what that underlying reason is, and we're not restricted from saying it.

Mike Brown will not fire Marvin Lewis after the season. In fact he will never fire Marvin Lewis. Mike Brown is too loyal, too stubborn, too cheap, too stodgy, and cares far too much about continuity. He also cares far too little about winning. And he could give a rat's a** about the fan.

Could it be that deep down mikey knows that it would be difficult to get a top line HC to come here? This is as good as it gets as far as getting a good HC to come here as it is known around the league and even in the college ranks that working for mikey would be a liability as far as finding top draft recruits and FA's. The bungs have been lucky in recent years and I think their luck has run out.

As far as caring about the fan - he knows the fans are happy with things the way they are. Remember winning is not the most important things that the fan - that is the ticket paying fan exclusively - is to keep the party going. The fan I mentioned wants those tailgate parties, a chance to get away from the old lady for an afternoon or evening and get a buzz on. If the bungs are somewhat competitive than that is icing on the cake. The rest of the fans that don't go to the games - than yes mikey could care less about them - they don't count in his book.

Presumably Marvin Lewis and his family gave thanks for his job security today. Here's Gregg Rosenthal who's another scribe who gets it.

The Debrief, Week 12: Mike McCarthy, Marvin Lewis in trouble?
Gregg Rosenthal - NFL.com - Nov. 22, 2016 at 12:52 a.m. - Updated at 07:36 p.m.

Barack Obama was President-elect the last time Mike McCarthy's Packers missed the playoffs. That was the end of the 2008 season, Marvin Lewis' sixth as Bengals head coach. Lewis' five-year run of tournament appearances in Cincinnati started three seasons later.

Both of those playoff streaks are set to end in January. It's worth wondering if McCarthy and Lewis -- two of the three coaches with the longest tenures in the NFL -- could also be looking for work.

Speculation about job security is one of the inherently unfair aspects of an inherently unfair profession in an inherently unfair world. And the post-Thanksgiving calendar is the season of coaching change.

In this week's Debrief, we're going to focus on the NFL coaching community, including which coaches are on the hot seat, before hitting the stretch run.

Mike and Marvin

On the same day that the Bengals' season all but ended with injuries to A.J. Green and Giovani Bernard during a loss to the Bills, two of Lewis' former assistants (Jay Gruden with Washington and Mike Zimmer with Minnesota) were piloting their way to big victories elsewhere. Lewis and the Bengals are victims of their own success. Expectations were raised because of the excellent roster Lewis helped to build. Three of his assistants (Gruden, Zimmer and Hue Jackson) have left to take head-coaching jobs elsewhere.

The story of Jackson's departure from Cincinnati for Cleveland last offseason helps explain Lewis' murky future. NFL.com's Michael Silver previously reported that Lewis himself pitched the idea of a succession plan to Bengals owner Mike Brown, which would take place after the 2017 season. Brown didn't want to put anything in writing for Jackson to take over, but the thought process shows Lewis is thinking about the end of the line.

Bengals fans don't want to hear it, but Lewis could be the one making the call about next season. A retirement is easier to imagine than Brown firing Lewis. The Bengals have disappointed in many areas this season, especially with their inability to protect Andy Dalton or get after opposing quarterbacks. But their nucleus -- led by Dalton, Green, Bernard, tight end Tyler Eifert, guard Kevin Zeitler, defensive tackle Geno Atkins and defensive end Carlos Dunlap -- is mostly young and intact. One sign of Lewis' success the last 14 years: This is a quality job, if it becomes open.


http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000744090/article/the-debrief-week-12-mike-mccarthy-marvin-lewis-in-trouble


I seriously doubt if Marvin is ready to retire. We're likely stuck with him for a very long time.

Good Grief. Check this one out. Talk about totally missing the point. The owner of the franchise should have never let things get so bad in the first place. And he shouldn't be satisfied with multiple one-and-done acheivements.

Why Marvin Lewis should never be fired from the Cincinnati Bengals
If he's on the hot seat, get him off. Quickly.
Chris Chase - FoxSports - Nov 22, 2016 at 2:35p ET

There are two coaches in the NFL who've earned the right to stay at their jobs as long as they see fit. One has 22 playoff victories with his team and the other has zero, but neither should ever find himself on the hot seat given the way both transformed the franchise they've coached for more than a decade.

The first, obviously, is Bill Belichick. Dude could get caught videotaping another team or having his quarterback alter game equipment and he'd still be teflon. The other, also pretty clear because of the headline of this post, is Marvin Lewis, the Cincinnati Bengals coach who's appeared on some hot-seat lists in the past few weeks with his 3-6-1 Bengals reeling and falling out of the AFC playoff race. It's a disappointing season in Cincinnati, to be sure, with their playoff quarterback and one of the league's top receivers barely able to get the team into the top half of the league's passing stats and a defense, Lewis's speciality, that bends just enough to break, no matter the opponent.

On the immediate level, things aren't as bad as the record indicates. All seven losses or ties came against teams with a record of .500 or above. In their current 0-2-1 stretch, the Bengals have been outscored by five points. (Flip around one of those games and the Bengals are just a game, or a half-game, out of first place in the AFC North.)

But a hard-luck season isn't why Marvin Lewis should stay. He should stay because 3-6-1 is now what's considered a hard-luck season in Cincinnati.

Starting in 1992 after the departure of Sam Wyche and ending in 2003 with the arrival of Lewis, here's how things went for the Bengals: 5-11, 3-13, 3-13, 7-9, 8-8, 7-9, 3-13, 4-12, 4-12, 6-10, 2-14. That's 11 years without a winning record, just one .500 record and seven years that brought fewer than five wins. One-hundred-seventy-six games with a cumulative winning percentage of .295. It goes without saying there wasn't a single playoff appearance to be had.

Then came Lewis, fresh off six quality years as a defensive coordinator in Baltimore and then one disappointing (but highly paid) season as the DC in Washington. In his first season, the Bengals improved six games to finish 8-8. In his third year, the team posted its highest win total (11) since 1988. Three lean years followed (8-8, 7-9, 4-11-1), but those bad seasons were still better than the marks of season's past with David Shula, Bruce Coslet and Dick LeBeau. Whether Lewis' job was ever in trouble, he saved that with another playoff berth (on a 10-6 season) and then, one season after that, a veritable Cincinnati dynasty began.

Five playoff appearances, two AFC North titles (no small thing in a division with teams that have have four Super Bowls this century) and a streak of four straight 10-win seasons unmatched in Bengals history. (Only once before had there even been back-to-back 10-win seasons.) Lewis changed the culture.

But he hasn't won a playoff game! Let me tell you the old proverb about beggars and choosers. And then let me share those 11-year pre-Lewis records again with you: 5-11, 3-13, 3-13, 7-9, 8-8, 7-9, 3-13, 4-12, 4-12, 6-10, 2-14. Before Lewis, Bengals fans thought January was just that month you take down your Christmas decorations. Now it's that month you lose to the Texans. But ... progress!

There's a perfectly valid line of thinking that you pat Lewis on the back, thank him for getting you this far and then go looking for someone else to take you to the NFL promised land. Or you could look in the mirror and realize that, oh yeah, you're the Bengals and this is the most successful coach in a team history that includes eight seasons of the legendary Paul Brown.

I have no dog in this fight, though. Fire Lewis and see what happens. I can harbor a guess. You'll be getting this chorus -- don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone -- stuck in your head for the next decade.

Don't worry, Chris. Marvin Lewis isn't on the hot seat. [eye roll]

The columnist does bring up some indisputable facts.

He claims to have no dog in the fight. I assert there's no fight to have. The bungs and Mike Brown are too trivial to defend, and it's far healthier and merrier to simply mock Mikey and his illusions of credibility.

As rich as the mirth has been, I am sort of hoping Marvin gets canned. I would love to see him land at a Cleveland or a Buffalo and win a Super Bowl while enabling Sheep shriek in rage while they continually enable Mikey.

May the Agony of the Sheep endure forever.

From earlier today, before the games started, Ian Rappaport demonstrated his cluelessness by claiming that Marvin Lewis is "one of the more intriguing" hot seat situations. He later qualifies by stating that Lewis has "a very strong relationship with the owner that could prove huge later this year." You think?

Lewis, Bradley, Fox among the coaches on 'hot seat'
Conor Orr - NFL.com - Nov. 27, 2016 at 08:49 a.m Updated at 12:27 p.m.

We're almost a month away from the end of the 2016 regular season, which for some coaches means an unfortunate end to their current employment situation.

Who should be especially worried?

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on GameDay First, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley and Bears coach John Fox are all on the supposed "hot seat," though each position has its own unique qualifiers.

Lewis, for example, remains especially close to Bengals ownership, according to Rapoport. The Bengals (3-6-1) gave him just a one-year extension at the end of last season, signifying that pressure could be on to deliver a playoff win to Cincinnati. Friendships and a comfortable business arrangement could get in the way.

As for Bradley and Fox, the situation seems clearer. Both teams are performing well below expectations and a shake-up might be the answer, especially with some intriguing candidates on the board. Rapoport echoed our previous notes on Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who despite not being on the NFL's Career Development Advisory Panel preliminary list of potential head coaches, is interested in leaving New England for the right opportunity.

The final month of the season can always change the minds of people in charge. The Jaguars (2-8) have a tough matchup against the Bills in Orchard Park, New York, while the Bears (2-8) host the Titans at Soldier Field. Lewis' Bengals will be taking on the division-rival Ravens in Baltimore.


http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000746291/article/lewis-bradley-fox-among-coaches-on-hot-seat


Marvin Lewis has such a strong relationship with his owner that he will never be on the hot seat. Mike Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.

Going back to the Chris Chase nonsense again, simply consider how unfulfilling it is to only make the playoffs. Once you realize that's as good as it gets, why even bother?

Would any fan of any team be satisfied with that? Imagine God coming down from On High and telling the Cleveland Browns fans they will never win a playoff game again, period. Know what all those passionate, win-starved Brownie fans would do? They'd go straight to Apathy Hell, that's what.

Let that sink in for a moment or two. Any kind of winning record is very tenuous (and cyclical), but losing in the playoffs once you're there is an absolute certainty.

That's basically where we are, my friends, because Mike Brown will do nothing more than stodgily plod along.

Hook, Marvin will never be a head coach for any other team, you can mark it down


A few years back his contract was up and he had his chance, not one team even interviewed him despite 5 or 6 openings and the leagues rule that a team has to interview at least one minority, his agent even contacted the 49ers and they said no thanks

And now Marvin has exposed himself even more of a failure with much better talent the last 3 years , Marvin is hot garbage

NFL hot seat rankings: Gloom deepens for Jaguars' Gus Bradley
Nate Davis - USA TODAY Sports - 12:51 a.m. EST November 25, 2016

Thanksgiving is upon us. We're thankful that Bruce Arians is out of the hospital and apparently well enough to coach this week. And we're thankful that none of the NFL's coaches have been fired (yet) — it's a tough business after all. But the Holiday spirit will only last so long, fellas. Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings: ...

2. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: Welp. Doesn't appear that Year 14 will net playoff victory No. 1 for Lewis, who watched his two most explosive offensive players, WR A.J. Green (hamstring) and RB Gio Bernard (ACL), go down Sunday. Only five teams in the league are worse than Cincinnati (3-6-1), and the lack of established depth is showing. Whether it's enough for owner Mike Brown to veer from Lewis remains to be seen, especially since the injuries are now a built-in excuse. Last week: 3

NFL hot seat rankings: Has Packers' Mike McCarthy lost his touch?
Nate Davis - USA TODAY - Sports 3:54 a.m. EST November 18, 2016

The 2016 NFL regular season has less than two months to go, but there are sure to be some surprising openings on the coaching carousel with some unexpected twists and turns virtually inevitable. Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings: ...

3. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: His team has failed to win in four of its last five outings, unable to solve any of the NFC East teams on its schedule thus far. Lewis' team now ranks 13th in the conference, and somehow winning a weak AFC North is probably the only avenue for reaching postseason for a sixth consecutive year. But it seems increasingly likely that this undisciplined outfit may finally be in line for a major shake-up. Last week: 4

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/2016/11/15/head-coach-hot-seat-rankings-mike-mccarthy-gus-bradley/93859716/


Another week, another loss, and Marvin moves up the USA Today hot seat rankings. Yet the reality remains unchanged. Mike Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.

Add another scribe to the list of ignomy: Burke, Chris. He starts out like he's merely saying that Marvin Lewis should be fired. By the time he's done, it's clear he believes that Marvin Lewis is likely to be fired.

Loss to Ravens makes it very clear that Bengals should move on from Marvin Lewis
Quickly
Sure, the Bengals' struggles this season aren't completely coach Marvin Lewis's fault, but something needs to change in Cincinnati, especially after the most recent loss to Baltimore. And it should likely come from the very top.
Chris Burke - Sports Illustrated - Sunday November 27th, 2016


Maybe Marvin Lewis deserves a pass for Sunday. After all, his struggling team went on the road without stars A.J. Green and Gio Bernard, and pushed the first-place Ravens and their outstanding defense to the brink before falling 19–14.

Maybe one even could write off this entire season as a product of Cincinnati’s circumstances—injuries and disappointing play at key positions, combined with a brutal schedule (all seven teams that have beaten the Bengals are above .500).

Those arguments are understandable—fair even. But they overlook the fact that Cincinnati, one of the league’s models of consistency the past five years, has regressed so badly this season that it’s difficult to see a way forward. There must be significant changes, and the easiest spot to start would be at the top, with Lewis.

A decision to fire Lewis will not come as easily for Cincinnati as it might for other franchises with embattled coaches. He took over in 2002, after the Bengals had spent a decade-plus as an NFL bottom-feeder, and since has orchestrated seven postseason appearances and four division titles. Lewis and owner Mike Brown have, by all accounts, a tremendous working relationship, so much so that Brown allowed Lewis to craft a succession plan that would have allowed Hue Jackson to take over after the ’17 season.

What Lewis has helped accomplish in establishing Cincinnati’s homegrown, draft-and-develop model is nothing short of impressive.

Unfortunately, it also has grown stagnant. No Bengals fan needs any reminder that Lewis is 0–7 in his playoff trips; the franchise hasn’t won in the postseason since 1990. And the risk of said draft-and-develop model is that the develop part does not happen in a timely fashion.

That’s part of the explanation for how Cincinnati wound up with Cedric Ogbuehi struggling at right tackle, Green lacking a reliable No. 2 target alongside him at receiver and progression at the cornerback spot has failed to materialize.

How much of that is on Lewis? A great deal, if not all. The exact split of personnel duties within the Bengals organization always has been kept a bit of a mystery, but Brown said two years ago he had “handed off” much of the responsibility. Lewis and director of player personnel Duke Tobin call most of the shots now.

Lewis’s imprint always has been on this roster, though, which is a clear positive when things are going well and a serious issue when the train jumps the tracks, as it has during this 3-7-1 season.

For as long as Lewis and Cincinnati have been together, it has recently taken on the look of a partnership nearing its end. The rumored succession plan made that obvious, along with the three consecutive one-year contracts Lewis has signed. The latest came this past off-season, following Cincinnati dropping an opening-round playoff game for the fifth straight year. At the time, Brown hinted that there would be no guarantees beyond 2016.

“It’s a process,” Brown told Cincinnati.com. “We seem to go through our own dance. But I commend Marvin’s achievements. He’s done remarkably well with our football team here, in recent years especially. I respect him. I like him personally. He’s going to be our coach this year. That’s in the bank. Where it goes, we’ll see how it plays out.”

Nothing much has gone right since then. Worse yet, the Bengals’ sudden drop-off has made it easy to wonder if they missed their window with the current group of players and coaches.

Oft-criticized QB Andy Dalton, who incredibly had four passes batted down on Cincinnati’s final possession Sunday before fumbling, is more or less operating on a year-to-year basis himself—his $96 million contract can be wiped from the books for a minimal cap hit after this season, and for no financial penalty come 2019. If the Bengals press the reset button by cutting ties with Lewis, might they start over at quarterback, too?

That’s an issue for down the road, and it really should be one with which the next regime has to deal.

Lewis deserves all the credit in the world for building a steady, competitive foundation in a place that had gone years without seeing much success. He also has to take much of the heat now. If you’re not moving forward in the NFL, you’re moving backward. The Bengals clearly are headed in the wrong direction these days.


http://www.si.com/nfl/2016/11/27/marvin-lewis-cincinnati-bengals-nfl-week-12


Yes, the Bungles are headed in the wrong direction these days. No, Marvin Lewis is definitely not going to be fired. Mike Brown was not dropping any such hint. That was a throw-you-bone-now-go-away comment during this past offseason. Why are all the scribes so unrelentingly clueless about Mike Brown?

Time to catch up from last week. The win today against Philadelphia may slow the tide for now.

Thanks to Jason Marcum at Cincy Jungle we can take a peek at an entry from ESPN Insiders. The offending scribe this time is: Caplan, Adam.

Hot Seat Index: NFL coaches in danger, or safer than you think
Adam Caplan - ESPN Insiders - Nov 29, 2016

We're nearly three-quarters of the way through the 2016 NFL season, and we have a good picture of which teams have exceeded expectations and which teams are coming up short. For the latter, that means head coaches are going to get fired.

With five more weeks of the season remaining, here's an inside look at which coaches could be on the way out after the season -- and which are likely to stick around -- based on discussions with several personnel executives around the league. ...

Warming up

The Bengals are almost certain to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2010. So what has happened to this team?

From talking to a team source, the roster, especially on the defensive side of the ball, has gotten really old and needs an infusion of younger and more athletic players. While the team feels good about its deep and talented secondary, more talent needs to be added to the front seven, the source added. And on offense, the Bengals have yet to adequately replace former starting receiver Marvin Jones, who signed with the Lions in free agency.

So, what about the future of Lewis, whose contract expires after 2017?

Lewis has a larger say in the roster than he did when he landed the job in 2003, but owner Mike Brown still picks the players. And it's no secret in league circles that Brown does not like paying coaches who are not working with the Bengals. While Lewis, who is 115-101-3 in 14 years as Cincinnati's coach, has done a terrific job of turning around the team since he took over, he still has not won a playoff game. That is why he'll remain on the hot seat -- at least until Brown goes on the record and says the veteran coach will be back for another season.

Mike Brown doesn't like to fire coaches, period. And the only way Marvin will be on the hot seat is in the credulous minds of certain scribes. Mike Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.

Last Tuesday on the Bengals Beat Podcast, Dehner said that Marvin Lewis will be on the hot seat if he loses to the Cleveland Browns. Check it out.

Nope. He could lose by 30 points against Cleveland and still keep his job.

This one is pretty borderline. With hot seat proclamations by beat writers being Cardinal sins, we'll wait to make a call.

This happens to be Browns Week, by the way.

NFL hot seat rankings: Will Monday night disaster cost Jets' Todd Bowles?
Nate Davis - USA Today Sports - 3:58 a.m. EST December 7, 2016

We're down to the final four ... no, not the final four college football teams (don't get us started), but the final four weeks of the NFL's 2016 regular season. And while some unexpected security for the Los Angeles Rams' Jeff Fisher surfaced over the weekend, several of his peers can only dream of an extension ... or even another year on the job. Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings: ...

3. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: Over the next four weeks, his team will play three division leaders. But the most stressful contest may be Sunday's visit to Cleveland against his good friend, Hue Jackson, and the winless Browns. If the Bengals get victimized by their in-state rivals, who long ago dismissed owner Mike Brown's legendary father, Lewis could find himself in even hotter water. Last week: 2

Part of me really wants to see the Bungs get victimized by their in-state rivals. Imagine the deafening refrain that will ensue about job insecurity. Even the local beat writers may well join in. Then everybody looks ridiculous a few days into the offseason when Marvin re-ups for another year. Because, as you know...

Mike Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.
