    So, who do you want to replace Marvin Lewis

    If Marvin Lewis were to be replaced (like that's happening), who would you like to see and why?

    Anyone besides this clown! He cannot and will not ever get it done.

    It really doesn't matter to me. Until Mike Brown dies, or until his kiddos take the team away and hire an outside GM to (truly) run all football operations...it doesn't matter.

    Most great HC prospects will not be willing to work under the hand-cuffing operations.

    Although a 2nd-tier prospect might be attracted to the longevity opportunity. lol

    Check out the post game news conference on the Bengals website. Lewis looks like a little boy who lost his puppy. He is done.

    I've been asking for Coughlin for awhile now. At least after seeing him in the Monday Night tv booth, we know he wants to coach again.

    Lol @ this thread.

    Not the Poll Question...rather the expected responses. Party like it's 2010. Or 2002. Or 1993. Good times!

    If you were a top head coach prospect and the owner/gm said "these are the assistance coaches we have on staff and will unequivocally be the ones you will work with", would you say yes? There's a reason Tom C said no a long time ago. Only a hc prospect with no other hc opportunities would say yes.

    The poll choices don't allow for Nick Saban, Urban Myer or Dave Lapham.

    Dabo Sweeney?

    This team needs an emotional leader. I wasn't a big Hue fan but in hind site he had a great relationship with Dalton.

    I cannot think of anyone in the NFL that has that fire - I am sure many of you can bring other names to the table.

    I was trying to think of a college coach that doesn't have the greatest talent begging to attend their institution, i.e., the SEC powers and I came up with the Clemson coach.

    Thoughts?

    I know Marvin isn't going anywhere, but, I can dream.

    I really don't care at this point. Just get him the heck away from the organization,...far, far away. He wasted many years of opportunities.

    Wholesale changes. I'd keep Guenther. Zampese gone. Alexander gone. Haslett gone.

    It stays because it's relevant writing, and even though it's trod-over ground, it is well-written. My compliments.

    But, just so you know, if you try to sell something--it's spam here, and it will be gone. Copy?

    Saban and Meyer would have to take a pay cut. Besides, hasn't Saban coached in the NFL before?

    Mikey needs to see this as a business decision - he will lose a lot of season ticket holders if a change is not made. He has to make only two decisions this off season (1) fire Lewis (2) Hire someone with the potential to be better. I don't live there, but I assume the fans are tired of the clapping clown now, benefit of the doubt is long expired.

    Edit - I would also add that Lewis should actually agree to step down if he had any balls. There is simply no way he can justify to even himself that he is the right person for this job at this time.

    Mike Brown makes a worker serve out his contract. If Lewis is guaranteed a salary next year, he will have to punch the clock.

    There will be a plethora of excuses as to why this year was an aberration.

    I don't think he will step down, because I don't think that he will find another HC opportunity. But that is hard to say. Maybe with a real GM and two good coordinators, he could rise above mediocre.

    not sure i'd even keep guenther, Alexander shoulda been gone when he benched Evans over whoever used to play LG.

    Let me ask you something, in all seriousness: other than from a few, when was the last time you have seen a comment here that wasn't 20+year old stale...even when it is written seriously?

    Believe me, I get message boards are primarily for bellyaching and amateur pontificating. Some fresh insights...much like the Grit fellow offered...are far more interesting.

    Probably the last time the franchise could win a clutch or playoff game...which is over 20 years ago. So the comments reflect the team's status pretty well...said another way, the comments get sort of old, but so does the behavior of management.

    But I'm a fan of the team, so endure both...

    Exactly. Mikey does the same thing over and over so we post the same thing over and over.

    Let me throw out this name, Sean Payton. what if he gets fired in Nola, would he be a good fit here?

    Never. Mike Brown may OK rogue players believing that his Coaches can control them, but he'll never hire a rogue HC, who won't do what he tells him to.

    Blow up PBS, shut down this website and burn all things Cincinnati Bengals if that's how you feel. Anyone who doesn't believe that every season which doesn't result in winning the Super Bowl is a failure ruins it for everyone else, as their "I-don't-give-a-shit-attitude" is what keeps the mediocrity rolling.

    Exactly. The comments wouldn't be repeated if the incompetency by Ownership didn't get repeated. Ownership's responses to their fans in turn generate the fans' responses to Ownership.

    Why in the world would anyone bother being a fan or give money to the team if they did't expect a commitment on Ownership's part to win a Championship?

    Evans was outperforming the Starter, and then Evans added strength after he left the Bengals. He was playing better without the increased strength because of technique and quickness. But, the Bengals philosophy that you need to be able to push your opponent off his spot (not sure how they miss that at Center every year), trumped Evans' superior play. When Evans added the strength, he became the League's #1 Guard, Left or Right, for three years in a row.

    I woupd keep Guenther because it would be an endorsement by Mike Brown that he can employ some of his ideasthat he has been prevented from doing under Marvin. He's been handcuffed, but has shown he deserves at least a year with a new HC. Zampese is completely incompetent as an OC. I also would give him his QB Coaching job back as Dalton and McCarron both advanced every season (until this year).
