    NO losing seasons in 4. How quickly we forget.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    Depends on which side of the coin you're viewing.

    With the talent this club has, 8-8 is totally unacceptable, especially given the repeated breakdowns on offense, defense, and special teams in the endgame.

    They just aren't mentally tough. They don't finish. And that's the kind of quality the coaches have to ingrain in their minds.

    The blame for this latest mess should be spread around evenly. It's easy to bash the defense, but keep in mind the offense did absolutely nothing for three quarters. The coaching decisions were awful. Marvin may talk a good game but his gameplanning and clock management still stink after four years.

    This seems a reoccurring thing with Marvin.



    IMO, he is an overrated coach on gameday, a weak to below-average evaluator of character and talent in the draft, and obviously for being a defensive-minded coach, he has failed miserable in that category in his time here. The D actually has regressed.

    Next year, with an easier schedule and hopefully a new D coordinator, the Bengals will make it back to the playoffs.

    Hopefully in the meantime, Marvin can iron out the wrinkles in his approach to game/clock management.

    You could just see him pooping down his leg after the Henry catch. He didn't know what to do. It was like watching the Jerry Narron "pulling defeat from the jaws of victory" re-runs from the past two summers.

    This season was a good slap in the face to IMO, a very overrated coach.

    Maybe the Bengals need a 'clock management coach'.

    Don't laugh, if it saves you a game, and you get into the playoffs,his salary would be worth it.
    Not this year...maybe a Wild Card

    Keep that in mind.
    But they DO have to win. If they lose, KC's in and they're out.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Seriously, the way he squandered that time-out is something my little cousin MIGHT do when we're playing Madden.

    Marvin Lewis is a good coach,I just believe he lost site of whqat his teams strenghts are.Against the Colts he tried to run the ball the whole game.Sure Indy has a terrible run defense but why leave what your good at (passing)and go to something else.Coach Lewis did this qutie often this season as well as leaving the no huddle and no coming back to it fro half the game sometimes.I just think this team would have been alot better if Maryin would let the offense loose and score has many as they could instead of just trying to score enough.Also if Chuch is back next season it will be a waisted season as well.

    And also some player attitudes. I agree with what Boomer said - in the off-season, Marvin needs to exert control back over this team and possibly get rid of a few players with character problems.

    Injuries hurt the Bengals this year. But when I look at this roster it has a lot of talent. So how did they end up 8-8 when everyone feels they are far better then that? I believe it is the character/attitude issue with certain players.
    "panic" only comes from having real expectations

    Agreed and don't forget the timeout expended trying to ice a kicker when that is absolutely the wrong call in that situation. Very bush.

    I laughed, but was not surprised.

    If there was no time left or the kick was for the win, I understand using one or even both timeouts to ice the kicker.

    But, heck, with a minute left and Carson and the offense with the rock at home, you need all the time you can get to give yourself a chance.

    To use that to ice a kicker on a chippy?

    Very amatuer.

    The Bengals definately have some issues and Lewis really needs to address them but I think a lot of people have short memories regarding the culture of losing that existed around the Bengals for over 10 years. It's not easy to turn that around, just look at the Cardinals and Lions.

    I always love it when people say that Marvin Lewis is overrated. We could bring back David Shula, maybe Bruce Coslet, heck lets call on good old Dick Lebeau. Ultimately Marvin has made some bad choices in his time with the Bengals but many coaches have. Do changes need to be made anyone can see that by looking at the defense every game. But keep in mind the players have also done a poor job of executing this entire year.

    I haven't read this thread yet and I am certainly not in a position to judge coaching decisions and whatnot, but I would like to throw in my two cents and say holy crap did that suck. And coaching whatever notwithstanding, the Bengals have to be one of the unluckiest football teams ever.
    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
