Ocho Cinco plans to tone it down

Lewis already has his hands full formulating strategies to compensate for an injury-plagued roster. Having to also serve as an amateur psychologist is wearing his patience.

Lewis singled out a handful of talented Bengals ? including Johnson ? whose behavior and mindset he believes help explain why they were forced to attend junior colleges.

"My job is to get the junior college guys to act like they've gone to Notre Dame and Michigan," Lewis said. "As we go, we'll continue to get more of those stable guys. But unfortunately, that's what we're dealing with ? a bunch of junior college guys."


:toofunny:

Johnson and Lewis can agree on this: Winning will go a long way toward shifting the spotlight elsewhere. Lewis said the Bengals have "a chance to shape our season incredibly" over the next four weeks with games against New York (1-5), Pittsburgh (4-1), Buffalo (1-4) and Baltimore (4-2).

"It's going to be a fight, but it's a doable fight," Lewis said. "When I stood on the sideline against New England, I didn't feel like we were overmatched. From this point on, we've got a chance because we're playing teams just like us."

Even though players like Johnson are unique.



:dang: uhhh no, rev marv. youre playing 2 teams in your division with 4 wins, who are clearly better, and 2 more teams who are JUST LIKE you, with 1 win. :blah:

how could he not see his defense was "overmatched" against the patriots? :confused:

they were "overmatched" against the browns. :huh:

jets=browns so the bengals could be in trouble.

Well, Marv - those jackasses may have graduated from junior colleges, but they have the maturity and mindset of toddlers.

Sorry Marv-tard - you can't put silk socks on hogs.

Any NFL quality athlete who had to go JUCO is probably dumber than a box of rocks - maybe the Bengals should talk with these guys and check into their backgrounds before drafting them:dang:

Marvin - it's not their "behavior and mindset" - it's their inability to meet even the abysmally low admission standards of your typical Division I football factory that forced Ocho Cinco & Friends to go the JUCO route

IMO that is Marvinspeak for "at least we are not playing the Colts this season"

These are the sorts of quotes you hear from someone who is Dead Coach Walking

The JUCO guys eventually played at the D-1 level. Crotcho Stinko played graduated from Oregon.

And Steve Smith played on the same JUCO team that Stinko did, and he doesn't have all these problems. So I wouldn't say it's the fact that they started out in JUCO.

I just think it's the Bengals.

Marv hold your hands up and plead guilty, they are your players.

Marv is guy hangin on for dear life to a job that pays him million$. He might be a lot of things but he's not a nut case. You gotta few a little bad for him, even though he brought most of this on himself. He's a Pittsburgh guy that has a pretty good football mind but he was never HC material. In some parallel universe he could have been the next Dcoord when Lebeau hangs it up.

:coffee:
You have the right idea here my friend..
The Bengals have turned these players into the rejects that
they are. When the Bengals got Lewis as their coach I thought
that they were going in the right direction.. Now, I know that they are
going in the right direction for the Bengals fans..
They are getting exactly what they deserve..

Considering the abysmal state of the Shitcinatti D, I hope that never happens. Don't even bring the idea up. Please.

and yes, I know some of the reason they suck is because of injuries and lack of personnell, but its also a very poorly coached defense.
