The simple things often mean a lot! Marvin Lewis has never had control of his football team since taking over in 2003!
During Marvin Lewis's tender as head coach for the Cincinnati Bengals he has amassed season records of 8-8, 8-8, 11-5, 8-8, 7-9, and 4-11-1 and even with the current record of 6-2 he barely squeaks in to the plus column overall. All this with a collection of talent which many think could be as good as any team in this period.
All this talent and what does Marvin Lewis have to show for it?
1. More arrests than any other team during his tenure (even Dallas)!
2. Consistent disappointment!
3. Consistant failure!
4. Consistent underachieving!
Now back to the little things......this may be hard for some to grasp but think about this. When Chad Johnson pulls his stupid stunts who helps him get his props together? His stupid HOF jacket? His black chin strap? Do you really think that the coaching staff is unaware that he is about to do these things? If so, think back to last week when a coach walked out on the field with Johnson and was standing by to take the dollar bill back which Johnson was using to bribe the ref!
These things go on week in and week out with Johnson, not to mention the numerous arrests over the last several years.................all right under Marvin Lewis's nose!
Marvin Lewis is NOT head coach material!
