Default When does Marvin Lewis get fired?

Man, I like the guy, but as a defensive coach, his team has sucked at tackling year after year. And to watch Joe Flacco run some 45 yards for a TD with a piano tied on his back, yet no Bengals were interested in pusuing him......its pretty clear that Lewis has lost his team.

Decent talent on the team, but no effort. Releasing Willie Anderson and Rudi Johnson to make room for those 2 guys named Ocho and Cinco wasnt that smart either.

Does he make it thru the season or get the axe before then??

Not sure what the owner is going to do. But maybe the answer lies with how many chances are they going to give child molester henry.

A guy at work, who is a bengals fan, (very cool though we have great talks about football) has been screwing with me saying next year they are going after Cowher...If that happened I would crap myself.

Another thing, we have a standing bet. IF his team wins I have to wear Bengals gear of his choosing for a day. He has to do likewise. Suffice it to say, I haven't lost yet. I think I am safe for at least another few years.

The Bungles are so disillusional they'll keep Marvin for a few more years.

That's a fun bet. I had buddies that did that and they had to wear the other teams gear to a bar for MNF game following the loss.

I honestly thought they should fire Marvin today after seeing that yesterday, but its tough to switch coaching staff mid season and not sure who from his staff would step up and be an improvement.

I say its at the end of the season, but they are gonna be in search of the perfect 0-16 season it looks like.

When either:

(a) Hell freezes over; or

(b) The Bungles win a Super Bowl

whichever comes first and my money is on hell freezing over.

Never I hope. Not because I like him, I'm ashamed to admit he's from the Burgh. He's a pathetic excuse for a head coach. But as long as he's at the helm, that spaceship is destined to crash.

Didn't he get his "defensive genius" stature because he worked for a talent laden defense in Baltimore? Same as with Billick being labled an offensive genius because he had Chris Carter, Robert Smith, Randy Moss, Jake Reed and company?

Hmmmm -something like Crennel being labled a defensive genius with the talent-laden Pats from 2001-2004?
