Also, I actually like Marvin Lewis. I don't think he's a terrible coach, especially for a small market team like the Bengals. But sometimes you just need to change things up. He's had 8 years to make this team good, and we're not. He has a losing record and he's never won a play off game. He's been unlucky with injuries (Palmer going down in the '05 play off game, as well as Palmer missing pretty much all of '08 ) . But that doesn't excuse him for putting a 2-7 team on the field the year after we won the division, especially since we haven't had any major injuries.
Lewis did some great things here, and it's been really fun at times. But I'm ready for a change, even if that means we get worse. I want to give someone else a chance to show what they can do with "terrible bungles" franchise.
