Let's see how Lazor does, surely he can't be worse than Zampese. Now hopefully Marvin resigns at the end of the year and we go 0-16 so we can draft a QB next year!

I'm more hoping that the clown will be afflicted with Alzheimer's,dementia,or any other unmentioned disease which will force the Captain of the Titanic away from his duties permanently. Lumina

PS. The big dirt nap would work as well but I don't want to wish that on uh,maybe,uh anyone in particular

It wasn't a secret to any of the preseason prediction types that letting 2 high quality linemen go and replaced them with two cinder blocks was probably going to have a negative effect on the offense. That is why most of them predicted 5 to 6 wins at most.

Zampese was screwed as soon as he took the job last year. He watched Jones and Sanu leave to be replaced by a New England reject and a rookie.

Zampese as OC was an all-time bad. I feel bad for the guy (he had been a good servant in a number of capacities) but it was evident even last season that he was way in over his head as OC. Last night honestly is probably as bad of a loss that the Bengals have had during the entire Marvin era. That was a dreadful offensive performance against a team in which seemingly half of their roster was injured or suspended.

Worse than Dave Shula? Or Dick Lebeau? I wonder which of the bung players will fly the coop in a huff next. It was Cory Dillon when he threw his pads into the gallery and quit and next was CP when he refused to work one more minute for mikey. Will AJ reach the saturation point and do something similar rather than let himself become totally bungalized? This might get interesting this Christmas.

I'd be lying if I didn't admit to being surprised. This is very out of character for Mike Brown's team. Wow.

When Bob Bratkowski finally left, Zampese wasn't an obvious choice for promotion, because look at who he coached under. When Jay Gruden left, it seemed like he was ready, but everybody knew that Hue Jackson, the former head coach, would get the gig.

So when Hue left it was Zampese's time at last. He had served under two effective OC's, and there weren't any red flags. Oops.

I think SF2 is right about him getting the shaft. Yes, he was shafted when the team let both Mohammed Sanu and Marvin Jones leave in the same offseason. Yes, he was shafted again when the team let both Andrew Whitworth and Kevin Zeitler go the following offseason. But he had also been shafted before either of those occurrences when the team drafted Cedirc Ogbuehi and Jake Fisher in the same draft. It would have sucked for Zampese if the Bungs had only let one of the wide receivers and one offensive lineman go, while only drafting one of those two busts. But the Bungs double-shafted three times.

So I don't know if things will get much better. Lazor likely won't be as predictable and will use his personnel better, but there's only so much that anyone can do with that line.

Why would you call a play that requires a QB Rollout to JJ Watt's side with him being unblocked?!?!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!!?!?!?!?

Do you hate Andy Dalton? Not like his children? Want them to be fatherless??? WTF???

He's not going to be covering the flats. He will be coming. I just don't understand that one at all.

Maybe Zampese doesn't like QBs that much.
