Exactly what I was thinking Sam. If Marvin does somehow get fired the first person I could imagine getting the job is Zampese, a cheap and reliable option for Mikey then we would definitely be staring at another lost decade. He has been sh!t so far as an OC so how do you think he would fare as a HC? If Marvin was fired that's what would probably happen.

I'm having trouble imagining Marvin going to another team as head coach where suddenly...

... his offense shows good clock management

... he's known for strong halftime adjustments

... all the knuckleheads are held accountable

The history of the league is filed with coaches who stabilized a franchise, got them pointed in the right direction, and then hit a ceiling. They got replaced and maybe the next guy built on the limited success, maybe not.

Perhaps that's all Marvin Lewis can be -- a useful transitional coach. We'll never know. He's too worn down at this point to start fresh anywhere else. Working for Mike Brown can do that for you.

I think the Browns hold the key to what happens with giggles down the road. We need the Browns to get better and to finish ahead of the bungs in the AFC N. We need to have 3 or more seasons like this and to finish behind the Browns for mikey to take notice. Recall he didn't give Lebeau all that much room and to see the Browns finish ahead of the bungs and the bungs to finish in last for 3 or more seasons and the very docile fans that attend the games to suddenly get their backs up - that might do it.

I think we could be staring down the gun barrel of lost decade part II. Even if he stays the fact that there are rumors indicates giggles might be losing some of his desire to coach and since he isn't a real strong coach that will make it worse. If he is replaced I'm not sure mikey will find a top rate coach that will want to come here. Doesn't look good either way.

Thanks, Storm. I'm sure I would have missed that.

Report: Marvin Lewis will retire at end of 2016 season
Chris Cooley of ESPN980 is claiming that Marvin Lewis’ days in Cincinnati are quite numbered.
Rebecca Toback - Cincy Jungle - Dec 27, 2016, 11:30am EST

Rumors are beginning to swirl regarding Marvin Lewis’ future with the Bengals.

After the Bengals’ first losing season since 2010, Lewis is coming under fire and many fans want him out of Cincinnati. On Sunday morning’s Cooley & Kevin show on ESPN 980, host and former Redskins player Chris Cooley suggested this will be Lewis’ last year in Cincinnati.

“From somebody I know in Cincinnati, Marvin Lewis will retire at the end of this year, slash, be asked to retire. Which is the only information I know,” Cooley said during hour two of the show (beginning at the 22 minute mark).

Cooley is also theorizing that should Lewis step down in Cincinnati, Paul Guenther could also leave to become the defensive coordinator of the Redskins, unless the Bengals want to hire him as head coach.

“Paul Guenther is one of Jay Gruden’s best friends in the world.... What do you do with your boys? Hire them,” Cooley said.

“The idea is that he’s (Marvin Lewis) been slowly packing up the office though,” Cooley claimed. “Slowly putting the pieces away so next Sunday, he can get home, have a little meeting and say see ya, I’m going to spend some time in Arizona and play some golf.”

Cooley’s sources are of course unknown and his claim doesn’t hold all too much merit as Marvin Lewis has claimed he will not quit on the Bengals. Per a Cincinnati Enquirer one-on-one interview with Lewis back in early December:

He said he will be back next year, if asked. “Coaches don’t fear being replaced,” said Lewis. He lamented the length of the offseason: “Unless the teams in front of us fall on their faces, we have to wait so long to get back to it (next year), and then it seems like (the season) just goes,” too quickly. “like it’s Saturday night all the time.”

What do you think of this latest rumor? Are you buying in that Lewis will step down by this time next week?


http://www.cincyjungle.com/2016/12/27/14089060/report-marvin-lewis-will-retire-at-end-of-2016-season


I don't think there are any good inside sources on the team. And we know Marvin wants to coach for at least a few more years to keep his son on the staff and provide him with more coaching experience.

Marvin is staying right here!

Source: Marvin Lewis won't retire, plans to coach Bengals next year

Marvin Lewis intends to return to the Cincinnati Bengals in 2017, a source close to Lewis told ESPN's Ed Werder, disputing a report that the longtime coach will retire at the end of this season.

Rumors have swirled about Lewis' future as the Bengals (5-9-1) close in on completing their first losing season since 2010.

Former Washington Redskins player and radio host Chris Cooley said Sunday on ESPN 980's "Cooley & Kevin" show that Lewis would leave the Bengals at the end of the season, citing "somebody I know in Cincinnati."

"The idea is that [Lewis] has been slowly packing up the office, though, slowly putting the pieces away so next Sunday, he can get home, have a little meeting and say, 'See ya, I'm going to spend some time in Arizona and play some golf,'" Cooley said.

(Snip)

Despite receiving just a one-year extension in the offseason and enduring an unexpectedly poor start to the season, Lewis said in early December that he didn't fear for his job because he speaks to 81-year-old owner Mike Brown "every day."

Nate Davis isn't going to stop now after coming this far.

NFL coaches' hot seat rankings: Who's feeling the most heat now?
Nate Davis - USA TODAY Sports - 1:27 a.m. EST December 28, 2016

Players for 20 of the NFL's 32 teams will be making vacation plans (or at least heading home) by this time next week. But for the league's coaches and their assistants, Black Monday can be the most tense day on the calendar, scores of them fully knowing they'll likely be on the move by Tuesday. Several owners couldnn't even wait, as evidenced again on Tuesday when the Buffalo Bills fired Rex Ryan. With that in mind, here is this season's final installment of our weekly hot seat rankings: ...

4. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: Unlike some others on this list, Lewis' team is still playing hard even as it soldiers on without key players like A.J. Green, Tyler Eifert, Gio Bernard and Vontaze Burfict. Still, this is Lewis' first non-playoff team since 2010 and one of the most underachieving of his 14-year tenure. Last week: 2


http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/2016/12/27/head-coach-hot-seat-rankings-black-monday-rex-ryan-mike-mccoy-todd-bowles/95863652/


At this point everybody knows that Marvin Lewis is staying, including the national scribes. Should be interesting to see if Marvin makes the list next year, assuming that Davis is still writing this series.

Here's one that everybody should read. We have another story from David Fulcher about cheapskate Mike Brown. I had not heard it before.

Marvin Lewis deserves return given triumphs over opponents, Bengals ownership
Mike DeCourcy - Sporting News - Dec. 30, 2016

There was a cute little video posted Wednesday on Twitter by Cincinnati television sportscaster Aly Cohen, a 17-second snippet that shows practice squad running back Tra Carson getting bopped in the helmet by a football thrown during a drill when he was facing the opposite direction.

After everybody has a chuckle, the camera turns and shows the venue for this, one of the final practices of the Bengals’ 2016 season: Paul Brown Stadium.

Other NFL teams on a sunny, 40-degree day might have been outdoors for their work. The Bengals have to be. They’ve got nowhere else to go.

Consider this when you evaluate Marvin Lewis' 14 seasons as Bengals head coach. He announced Thursday he would return to the team for a 15th season on the Sirius/XM radio show hosted by SN’s Alex Marvez and former NFL lineman Ross Tucker, and some wonder why it should be his choice given he’s never won a single playoff game.

That he coached in seven of them, though, represents one of the most underrated coaching achievements in the league’s history.

You may believe the NFL is the ultimate parity league: television revenue distributed evenly, player draft arranged in inverse order to the previous year’s standings, salary cap that disallows the richest franchises from hoarding the most impactful talent. But all league ownership is not created equally, and the Bengals are less equal than most in that department.

Although Mike Brown has been the team’s owner for the entirety of Lewis’ tenure, Lewis has managed not only seven playoff appearances but also four division championships in the highly competitive AFC North. That’s seven more playoff trips — and seven more winning seasons — than the Bengals had achieved in the 14 years before he arrived. The average record for Brown's Bengals pre-Lewis: 4-12.

It may be too long ago for some to remember what the Bengals were like after Mike Brown took complete control of the Bengals in 1991 and soon afterward installed Dave Shula — then 32, with a single season as a coordinator on his resume — as head coach.

That began a 13-year run in which the team did not achieve a record better than .500, under Shula, Bruce Coslet, Dick LeBeau or the early, rebuilding stages of Lewis’ tenure. They became a national punchline for their affinity for gathering and tolerating players with off-field issues. Brown, when he chose to address the topic, generally presented it as a desire to give another chance to players unwanted by others. But given his penurious approach to running the franchise generally, it could be viewed as his own twisted version of “Moneyball”: talented players unwanted by others are less expensive than those in high demand.

One of the funniest stories about Bengaldom was told by David Fulcher, a three-time Pro Bowl safety for the team in the late 1980s/early 1990s, during an appearance on WCKY radio. Fulcher played nearly his entire career for Cincinnati, but in 1993 he left as a free agent and signed with the Los Angeles Raiders.

One day not long after Fulcher arrived in LA, he was in the locker room and felt like having a soda. So he went to the machine in the corner of the room and inserted a quarter. It dropped through the machine and landed in the coin return. He did it again, same thing. And again. He started to get frustrated at the machine being broken, then heard several players nearby laughing at him. The soda was free. Of course it was free. NFL teams take care of their players. But Fulcher was used to playing in Cincinnati, where players needed to have change available.

They are the only Northern team in the league without an indoor practice facility. The three teams that surround them geographically — the Colts, Steelers and Browns — each have one. The University of Cincinnati has one, and the Bengals borrow it (if available) in the most extreme weather. Otherwise, they practice in the stadium or on the grass fields nearby.

Even just last week, as safety Shawn Williams said on WLW radio, the team had to practice outdoors in 20- and 30-degree temperatures. In Houston to play the Texans on Christmas Eve, the temperature was 50 degrees or so warmer, and the players felt the difference.

They still lean more heavily on their coaching staff for evaluation than pretty much every NFL team. The Baltimore Ravens list 14 members of their scouting and personnel department in their staff directory, including eight designated "scouts." The Bengals list 10 with personnel responsibilities, including Mike’s brother Pete and his son Paul. There are three men designated as "personnel executives,” a euphemism perhaps employed to disguise the lack of heft in the scouting department.

The Bengals’ eagerness to take character risks experienced its apotheosis when Vontaze Burfict, who’d been called for 12 personal foul penalties in four seasons, delivered a blow to the head of Pittsburgh receiver Antonio Brown that moved the Steelers closer to a potential game-winning field goal in the closing seconds of their playoff game last January, and that was followed by an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty against Adam Jones, who’d been suspended for a year earlier in his career, released after a single season in Dallas and then rescued from the Canadian League by the Bengals.

Lewis defended his players after that incident, and either his acceptance of this approach to personnel by the front office, or his participation in it as a part of the football operation, remains his most obvious weakness as a coach. He should be either strong enough by now to tell Brown he wants this changed, or wise enough to realize it’s holding back the team.

If he has been part of the problem, though, Marvin Lewis has been far more the solution. Can the Bengals do better? It’s not impossible, but given how this organization operates, they are far more likely to do a lot worse.


http://www.sportingnews.com/nfl/news/bengals-coach-marvin-lewis-contract-hot-seat-rumors-record/5xuwzp9ehelp1tadn5y6c81s0


Yes, it is true that we could do a lot worse than Marvin Lewis, but should we happy about that? No! Again, if just getting to the playoffs is the best you can do, why even bother?

With Marvin Lewis we know the Bungs will occasionally be good enough to get beat in the playoffs.

With some new coach like Guenther they may go back to perennial 4-12 team.

As a fan I find very little difference in enjoyment between these. In particular the Bungs under Lewis show up on national television and generally play like they did under Shula. On the road in prime time Lewis has an almost inconceivable record of 1-16.

Not to mention the fact that I spite of Lewis's playoff appearances he's 8-22 vs the Steelers and 2-14 at home vs the Steelers which is not incredibly different than David Shula would have produced. Who wants to pay for tickets to watch the Steelers crush the Bungs every year?

Good read! Pretty much sums up my feelings and apprehension of possibly making a change. With that said nothing this past week or so has indicated any possibility of change, and their win over Baltimore does nothing to encourage change.

I'm sure that for every entry I've listed there are probably at least three I've missed. This one came up because I was searching for something else. Can you guess what that is?

Bengals HC Marvin Lewis’ only path to survival is continuity
John McMullen - Fan Rag Sports - Dec 5, 2016

It was like old times at Paul Brown Stadium Sunday.

Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton torching the Philadelphia secondary and enigmatic but talented linebacker Vontaze Burfict piling up 15 tackles and two interceptions of Carson Wentz as Cincinnati routed the Eagles 32-14 to halt a four-game skid.

Snapping out of a funk against a free-falling team, though, might be too little, too late for Marvin Lewis, the 14-year head coach of the franchise who sets a new record for infamy every time he pilots his team.

No man has ever coached more games with one franchise without garnering at least one playoff win and for five years, Lewis has had an opportunity to change that narrative and failed on each occasion.

Every setback has its own story but at 4-7-1 it doesn’t look like another postseason berth is in the cards for Lewis and the Bengals, especially when you consider Baltimore and Pittsburgh have started to trend in the right direction with each moving to 7-5 with impressive wins on Sunday.

Meanwhile, because of the all the solid teams in the AFC West, the wild card is not a path to victory for Cincinnati so winning out and earning the AFC North crown is the only way the organization is going to extend its record playoff run to six years.

And being 2 ½ games behind, albeit only two in the loss column, with four to play isn’t exactly the best math to make that happen so many believe the thin ice Lewis is currently on and will break underneath him on “Black Monday” absent the miracle.

And the conventional wisdom may end up being correct, but there is another path for Lewis to keep his job that has nothing to do with any on-field results, and that’s the idea of continuity.

The fact that Pittsburgh plays in the same division is not lost on Mike Brown or the Bengals. The Rooneys and the Steelers have had all of three coaches since Chuck Noll arrived in 1969 and each — Noll, Bill Cowher and current mentor Mike Tomlin — have contributed to that franchise’s record six Super Bowl titles.

The polar opposite is also in the North, the 0-12 Cleveland Browns, who have had nine coaches since their reboot in 1999 and not so coincidentally have amassed just two winning seasons and one playoff appearance over that span.

The Bengals have correctly used the Steelers as their blueprint and people who think they are automatically going to pull the plug on Lewis should understand a few things, most notably this franchise had a total of seven playoff appearances in 35 years of its existence pre-Lewis, and its only two Super Bowl appearances. That number is also at seven in 13 seasons with Lewis in charge with No. 14 still technically pending.

The second part of Lewis’ case is the obvious respect his program has garnered around the NFL, as recent coordinators of his like Jay Gruden, Mike Zimmer and Hue Jackson are now head coaches in this league.

So if you’re a trial lawyer preparing a summation in defense of Lewis, embrace the resume — warts and all — and point out the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of that fence.


http://www.fanragsports.com/nfl/bengals-hc-marvin-lewis-path-survival-continuity/


No, his every path to survival is continuity! It's his be-all and end-all path. It is the one and only path. Good Lord, it's like saying ice is cold and fire is hot. And the world will end in one or t'other.

Katie, here you go. Another article from early December. The scribe knew that Marvin was staying, because, guess why?

Marvin Lewis’ relationship with Mike Brown shows why he’ll be back with Bengals in 2017
Mike Brown probably isn’t firing Marvin Lewis anytime soon.

Jason Marcum - Cincy Jungle - Dec 8, 2016, 10:00am EST

The Bengals love continuity, which is one of many reasons why we should expect Marvin Lewis to be back with the team in 2017.

Regardless of how the Bengals finish this season, Lewis is all but locked in to returning for a 15th season, if he wants to. He's already signed through 2017, and we already know how owner Mike Brown very rarely allows the team to pay coaches or players who aren't still with the organization.

It also helps that Lewis and Brown have an uncommon level of continuity between an owner and coach. Those two have worked closely together for much of Lewis' tenure, and that relationship is just another reason why Lewis is likely to be back next year.

Because when it comes down to it, it doesn’t matter what we think or what ESPN thinks. All that matters is what Mike Brown thinks, and Lewis believes he knows what Brown is thinking when it comes to his continued employment.

"I have one-stop shopping. I talk to Mike every day. And I don't have to hear from someone else what they think... because it's what he thinks," Lewis told ESPN.com. "I report to Mike and that's all that really matters that way. We have the candid conversations we have all the time. It's just the way it is."

If Lewis does indeed return, he'll attempt to guide the Bengals to another winning record and playoff berth, two things Brown never enjoyed as an owner before Lewis got here. As soon as Brown took over the franchise in 1991, the Bengals fell into the cellar of the NFL.

But Lewis helped pull the franchise out of it and make this a winning franchise again. That earned him a lot of clout with Brown, so don't expect one bad season, after five great ones, cause Brown to fire the only winning coach he's ever employed.

"I think the thing with Mike is that he's been in this business a long time. And he takes every loss as hard as I do or anybody else does here. And it affects him," Lewis said. "But on the other hand, he trusts me to move the football team in the right direction. ... that's the commitment that he's made to me ... and that's the commitment I've made to him, to get his football team in the playoffs and through the playoffs all the time and be world champions...

"As long as I'm going to do this here, that's what my goal is. Anything short of that, I'd be wasting time worrying about it other than spending time worrying about how to beat the next team."

We likely need to accept the fact that Lewis is going to be back next year if he wants to be. He’s done too much in the eyes of Brown to be gone after a bad season, even if he has yet to win a playoff game in Cincinnati.

Do they ever. That may well be the line this 2017 offseason: Bungles stubbornly cling to continuity. Or at least one line among many.

Hobson published a great set of stats today. While we've posted similar numbers in the past, they're worth looking at again. Check this out regarding coaches who lasted at least 15 seasons with one team. I added winning rates.


NFL head coaches with same team for 15 straight seasons (Elias)

Tom Landry........ Dallas 1960-88................ 250-162-6 (.598)
Curly Lambeau..... Green Bay 1921-49............. 209-104-21 (.626)
Don Shula......... Miami 1970-95................. 257-133-2 (.656)
Steve Owen........ Giants 1931-53................ 153-100-17 (.567)
Chuck Noll........ Pittsburgh 1969-91............ 193-148-1 (.564)
Bud Grant......... Minnesota 1967-83............. 158-96-5 (.610)
Bill Belichick.... New England 2000-16........... 201-71 (.739)
Jeff Fisher....... Houston-Tennessee 1994-2010... 142-120 (.542)
Hank Stram........ Kansas City 1960-74........... 124-76-10 (.590)
Bill Cowher....... Pittsburgh 1992-2006.......... 149-90-1 (.621)
Marvin Lewis...... Cincinnati 2003-17............ 118-103-3 (.527)

http://www.bengals.com/news/article-1/Lewis-convenes-another-season/4878c63d-aac0-498f-a935-295aa5907659

You have all these Hall of Fame Coaches and there's Marvin Lewis without any playoff victories. There's only Jeff Fisher to keep him company in the toddler room. Fisher at least made it to a Super Bowl and managed a total of five wins in the playoffs. He also made it to the Divisional round five times and the Conference Championship twice. That all came during his first 15 seasons.

Marvin has never made it past the Wild Card round.

That's the clash some teams are considering as the NFL season winds down. Here are the pros and cons for keeping seven coaches in their jobs; it would have been nine except that Rex Ryan (Bills) and Gus Bradley (Jaguars) have already been fired. ...

Marvin Lewis (Bengals)

PROS: Loyalty. Owner Mike Brown is fond of Lewis, who is under contract through 2017. Lewis has indicated he wants to be back. At some point, Lewis will retire — he talked about a succession plan that would have kept Hue Jackson from going to Cleveland one year ago — but apparently wants at least one more season before that occurs. Brown always seems to oblige.

CONS: Any place else, Lewis would have been fired after going NFL-record 0-7 in playoff games, including five straight first-round losses through 2015 season. He wraps up his 14th season in Cincinnati with still no playoff win and a team that underperformed this season. After yet another home loss to Pittsburgh eliminated Bengals, Lewis acknowledged that "I've not found the right buttons to push to get us to where we need to be. It's my job to figure out why we don't get it to where it needs to be." Any other team would be looking for replacement at this point, someone who can take the team to that next level.

Here's the first one to pop up for 2017. Endless continuity for the hot seat proclimations.

9 NFL coaches who will be on the hot seat in 2017
Cameron DaSilva - Fox Sports - Jan 3, 2017 at 3:09p ET

A total of five head coaches were fired this season, with Gary Kubiak being the sixth to exit the ranks after retiring Monday. It’s a vicious cycle in the NFL, but success is necessary in order to remain employed, and that’s not going to change any time soon.

The guys who survived this season are just the next ones up in the hot seat, so it’s never too early to take a look at some of the names who will be there in 2017. ...

#5 Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals

Lewis is the second-longest-tenured head coach in the league; only Bill Belichick has been with his team longer. Yet, despite his lengthy tenure with the Bengals, Lewis has yet to win a single playoff game. Furthermore, his team regressed drastically this season after winning the AFC North in 2015.

His name popped up a handful of times this season when it came to coaches on the hot seat, and he’ll almost certainly find himself in the same discussions next season. If the Bengals don’t compete for a division title in 2017, they could opt to make a change and shake things up. He has only one year left on his contract.

These should settle down now during the offseason. One would hope.

BTW, Mike Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.

I don't think these people - reporters etc realize what town we're in. This town doean't have a winning culture and hasn't in years. This town is similar to San Diego - laid back and not that competitive. Mikey also knows this and runs the team accordingly.

THANK GOD the Bengals just gave Randy Bullock a 2 year deal (shrug)

If ever a team needed to use a late draft pick on a kicker this is it.
