combatbengal Posted January 2, 2017 Report Share Posted January 2, 2017 Well Folks, the 2016 Football season is over for the state of Ohio. Bengals and Browns didn’t make it to the playoffs and the Buckeyes got spanked. There are 6 head coaching positions available in the NFL and the Bengals aren’t one of them. Which means we will have Marvin Lewis for yet another year. That’s another year of an undisciplined football team, another year of poor time management on the field, more wasted time out, more drives stopped due to penalties, more missed tackles, etc. Oh, and if we actually go 8-8 next season, that’s an improvement and he will most likely be extended past 2017. I like Marvin Lewis; he did a great deal for this team, turning things around for us. But he has yet to prove that he can get us deep into the playoffs and to the Super Bowl. Year after year, we see the same issues with players, same performance, same attitude, same excuses, same plan to get better, etc. I think it’s time for a change and if I were king for a day, I’d promote Lewis to GM – if he wanted it, then offer Jon Gruden the HC position. Bring in fresh ideas, new coaching philosophy, different leadership, etc. We seem to have a great team on paper year after year; last year was our year! But for some reason, our play calling kills us, stopped offensive drives due to penalties kill us, the lack of our defensive backs to cover, guard and tackle kills us, and so on… Who Dey and fingers crossed that we have a competitive team next season!
