The Bengals’ abysmal start may finally spell an end to Marvin Lewis’ 14-year tenure as the team’s coach, at least a possibility considered by USA Today.
In its latest hot seat rankings, Lewis came in at the top. He was third a week ago.
“After that Week 2 defeat, normally reserved Pro Bowl WR A.J. Green openly questioned an offense that's scored nine points amid an 0-2 start — Cincy is the first team since 1939 to open with two home games and fail to score a touchdown in each — and Zampese was gone the next day. Still, ineptitude on a squad harboring plenty of talent and a mini-mutiny from his best player does not portend a bright outlook for Lewis, whose contract is up after the season.”
With their next game in Green Bay against an angry Packers team, things may not get better for the Bengals anytime soon. If that holds true, Lewis’ clock might be ticking.
