Marvin Lewis did NOT sign a 3-year deal as I predicted. He signed a 2-year deal.
Oh well. None of us are perfect.
I knew this would break when I was away from the computer. Just found out a few minutes ago, and by reading our humble message board right here. More to come.Lewis returns with two-year deal

Marvin Lewis, whose Bengals’ obituary has been penned by the national pundits for the last 16 days, offered his own re-write Tuesday when he signed a two-year deal to return that gave the team two unexpected finishes in the last 48 hours.
Although no other moves were announced it’s believed there’ll be changes to Lewis’ 16th staff in the coming days. If Lewis serves out his two-year deal, he’ll become just the fourth man in the Super Bowl Era to coach the same club for 17 straight seasons, joining Miami’s Don Shula, New England’s Bill Belichick, and Tennessee’s Jeff Fisher.
Lewis, 59, won his 125th game on Sunday when the Bengals knocked the Ravens out of the playoffs in stunning fashion on a 49-yard TD pass with 44 seconds left on fourth-and-12. That puts him in a tie for 26th on the NFL’s all-time victories list.
The Bengals came into this season as one of seven teams with at least six play-off berths dating back to 2008 with Green Bay, New England, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Seattle, and Baltimore.
