This one shall go down in infamy. Marvin Lewis, bless his heart. For the life of him, he cannot fathom what went wrong this season.

After looking at the brutal fourth quarters and the wreckage of the close losses, Lewis left the impression it is an intangible question and not a personnel issue or X-and-O conundrum. They need to find a way to win the tight ones with explosive plays in all three phases, he said, and he summoned three core players not known for emotions: wide receiver A.J. Green, quarterback Andy Dalton, and defensive tackle Geno Atkins. ...

There are things that don’t make sense to Lewis. ...

“It may be a mental thing, it may be a repetition thing, a confidence thing, a poise thing, time on task thing. It’s all those things,” Lewis said. “It’s not Xs and Os … if an offensive coordinator repeated a play, we would come in and pay him anyway. We have to see one of those guys repeat a play. So, the ‘adjustment,’ that’s more journalism jargon than truth.

I guess it's hard to find answers when you filter out potential sources of truth. We use that jargon around here, too, and we're not journos. Thank God.

So, would you rather listen to a Giggles presser, or suck the snot from a gorilla's nose 'til his head caved in?

Losing is also just jargon. Look at the caliber of coaches that had 15 straight years. What a shame the Bungs did to that list.

That explains why there aren't any. Marvin will be back, though! We can look forward to no halftime adjustments for another season.
