Marvin Lewis calls out his players

Marvin Lewis' anger and harsh words pierced the steel locker room doors at Paul Brown Stadium.

"If you don't want to be on the team, don't show up at 4 o'clock," Lewis yelled in a profanity-laced tirade toward his Bengals players following the 34-13 loss Monday night to England.

Didn't take long for Marv to let his team know what he really thinks of them at the moment.

When is he going to grow a set and call 85 out. We all know who is talking about when he publicly makes a threat to his team.

Monday night massacre
Lewis calls team 'selfish'

By Kevin Goheen
Post staff reporter

The walls and doors separating the Bengals locker room from the outside world are thick. They weren't thick enough to hold Marvin Lewis' anger and displeasure following the Bengals' 34-13 loss to New England on Monday night, the third straight loss for the Bengals after a win against Baltimore in the season opener.

Lewis lashed out at the entire team in the postgame meeting before going into his press conference, where he characterized the team overall as being "selfish." His outburst was loud enough for those media waiting outside of the locker room to hear. It was a voice of frustration from a head coach whose team has now lost six of its last seven games going back to the end of last season.

"I'm tired of fighting it," said Lewis. "You don't call the offense, you don't call the defense, you just play. All week long people tell you how good you are. We ain't (nothing). We won't play together. We need to figure it out. Nowhere in the National Football League do guys act like this. If you don't want to be on this team, please don't show up."

Great self assessment from within Bengal central

Well, to be honest, the Bengals just aren't that good. Their oline is overrated, they had a bad defense before half the unit was injured, and their best players ARE selfish. They'll be lucky to break .500.

Oh please, by all means keep them coming. Nothing better than a good Bengal meltdown. :wink02:

Team in a three-fall

Marvin Lewis' anger and harsh words pierced the steel locker room doors at Paul Brown Stadium.

"If you don't want to be on the team, don't show up at 4 o'clock," Lewis yelled in a profanity-laced tirade toward his Bengals players following the 34-13 loss Monday night to England.

The Bengals have a 4 p.m. team meeting today.

The Bengals (1-3), buried in last place in the AFC North, lost their third straight game and for the sixth time in their past seven games, dating to the three-game losing streak that ended 2006.

"I'm just as upset, obviously, as I can be," Lewis said in his postgame news conference. "Right now, we're finding a way to play not well enough to win.

"We're going to see who we're going to fight with. If we have to make changes, we'll make changes."

New England (4-0) used a balanced offense to keep the ball from Bengals quarterback Carson Palmer and his playmakers. New England had the ball for 37:24 and ran 66 plays to the Bengals' 51.

The Patriots ran up 404 yards - 173 on the ground and 231 through the air.

The attendance of 66,113 was a Bengals franchise record and the 30th consecutive home sellout, but Paul Brown Stadium had emptied except for boo-birds by the time New England took two kneel-downs to end the game.
Patriots backup tailback Sammy Morris, playing in place of injured starter Laurence Maroney, ran for 117 yards on 21 carries. He had a backbreaking 7-yard touchdown run on fourth-and-1 in the third quarter to put New England up 24-7. It capped an eight-play, 81-yard drive.

Wide receiver Randy Moss had nine receptions for 102 yards, including his sixth and seventh touchdown catches in four games.

Bengals right tackle Willie Anderson started but played just one series.

A nagging heel problem, exacerbated by a knee injury last week at Seattle, made it nearly impossible for him to continue.

"We have to stop reading our own press clippings," Anderson said. "I'm tired of hearing we're better than them. We need to quit saying that. Guys are working extremely hard. It's even more frustrating when you go 1-3 and put in that kind of performance."

Since losing to New England on Oct. 1, 2006, the Bengals are 6-11.

The Bengals reach a bye at a good time. They next play Oct. 14 at Kansas City.

A possible season-ending torn Achilles' tendon suffered by Lemar Marshall and an eye injury to Landon Johnson left the Bengals with two healthy linebackers: Anthony Schlegel and Dhani Jones, both of whom signed in September. Rookie safety Chinedum Ndukwe played outside linebacker. Caleb Miller (back) and Ahmad Brooks (groin) did not dress.

"We're down some guys, but that's no excuse," Lewis said.

The Bengals are hoping to regain the services of outside linebacker Rashad Jeanty (calf) and special teams ace Ethan Kilmer (knee), who had surgery at the end of the preseason.

Starting tailback Rudi Johnson (hamstring) did not play Monday night, but backup Kenny Watson played well in the spot start, rushing for 55 yards on 13 carries.

The Bengals appear to be as beat up emotionally as they are physically.

"We're not going to get an easy game from here on out," defensive tackle John Thornton said. "We can't tank it now. We have to see if we can get on a run, but we have to win one."

In losing for the third consecutive game, the Bengals allowed New England quarterback Tom Brady to throw for 231 yards and three touchdowns. Brady was intercepted for just the second time this season, by Bengals rookie cornerback Leon Hall. The Bengals turned the takeaway into a touchdown on a five-play, 35-yard drive in the second quarter that was capped by a 1-yard Palmer touchdown pass to wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh. The touchdown was the fourth this season for Houshmandzadeh, who finished with 10 receptions for 100 yards.

New England led 17-7 at the half.

Brady threw two first-half touchdown passes, 1 yard to linebacker Mike Vrabel and 7 yards to Moss.

Trailing 17-7, the Bengals had a chance late in the half to pull closer. But wide receiver Chad Johnson and Palmer suffered a communication breakdown. On second-and-9 from the New England 20-yard line, Johnson ran deep on a crossing pattern, and Palmer thought Johnson would run short. New England cornerback Asante Samuel stepped in front of the pass for the interception.

Johnson, in a show of what might have been Lewis' reference to "selfishness," jawed with Palmer on the bench and as they walked off the field at halftime.

Palmer would take the heat for the error in his postgame press conference.

The on-field display was an embarrassing moment on an embarrassing night on national television.

"We're 1-3," Thornton said. "We're a 1-3 team. There's no sugar-coating it."

There was one positive for the Bengals. Those jerseys were slightly less eye-bleedingly bad than the normal monstrosities they wear.

Awwwww. Poor wittle Bungles. Nobody loves them no mo. :toofunny::toofunny:

If the dumb ass named Marv would have taken control of his team before the start of last season and acted like a head coach instead of a buddy, maybe things would be different.

Too bad, so sad. :sofunny:

i dont know if anyone noticed this, but when they had chad johnson miked up a few weeks back, i believe tj housh ran a reverse for a td. chad johnson ran up to him in the endzone for what i thought were congratulations.

he was caught on the open mikes saying "tj...tj...did you see that block i threw?"

talk about the ultimate in selfishness.

marvin "the enabler" lewis has no credibility to try and call his players out for being selfish. it would be like belichick calling out his team for being roided up, cheap shotting, cheaters.

ol marv needs to just shut up and play with the team he created.
