The Perpetual Marvin Lewis Hot Seat Roundup

The national scribes keep putting Marvin Lewis on the imaginary hot seat. He continues to keep his job. Another year goes by. The Bungles again fail to win a playoff game. Another spate of commentary arrives heralding his warm backside. Nary a peep of factual evidence accompanies the drivel. Mike Brown remains monolithic, unbending, unyielding. The cycle repeats itself, again and again and again.

As Hook would say, pure comedy gold.

It seems so clear now. SI's Don Banks claiming that 2016 is a "slam dunk" for heat puts it all into focus. This is the thread. We've cited examples for years and they're all over the forum. Let's collect them all in one place. A virtual Hall of Shame for clueless scribes who refuse to treat Mike Brown as the unmistakable sui generis that he is. We'll keep a listing here of everyone who makes the claim, along with dates of occurrence. (To be perpetually updated with examples past and future.) Individual quotations will come in subsequent posts. No restrictions on the time frame.

From earlier today, before the games started, Ian Rappaport demonstrated his cluelessness by claiming that Marvin Lewis is "one of the more intriguing" hot seat situations. He later qualifies by stating that Lewis has "a very strong relationship with the owner that could prove huge later this year." You think?
Lewis, Bradley, Fox among the coaches on 'hot seat'
Conor Orr - NFL.com - Nov. 27, 2016 at 08:49 a.m Updated at 12:27 p.m.

We're almost a month away from the end of the 2016 regular season, which for some coaches means an unfortunate end to their current employment situation.

Who should be especially worried?

According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport on GameDay First, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis, Jaguars coach Gus Bradley and Bears coach John Fox are all on the supposed "hot seat," though each position has its own unique qualifiers.

Lewis, for example, remains especially close to Bengals ownership, according to Rapoport. The Bengals (3-6-1) gave him just a one-year extension at the end of last season, signifying that pressure could be on to deliver a playoff win to Cincinnati. Friendships and a comfortable business arrangement could get in the way.

As for Bradley and Fox, the situation seems clearer. Both teams are performing well below expectations and a shake-up might be the answer, especially with some intriguing candidates on the board. Rapoport echoed our previous notes on Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who despite not being on the NFL's Career Development Advisory Panel preliminary list of potential head coaches, is interested in leaving New England for the right opportunity.

The final month of the season can always change the minds of people in charge. The Jaguars (2-8) have a tough matchup against the Bills in Orchard Park, New York, while the Bears (2-8) host the Titans at Soldier Field. Lewis' Bengals will be taking on the division-rival Ravens in Baltimore.

Marvin Lewis has such a strong relationship with his owner that he will never be on the hot seat. Mike Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.

Going back to the Chris Chase nonsense again, simply consider how unfulfilling it is to only make the playoffs. Once you realize that's as good as it gets, why even bother?

Would any fan of any team be satisfied with that? Imagine God coming down from On High and telling the Cleveland Browns fans they will never win a playoff game again, period. Know what all those passionate, win-starved Brownie fans would do? They'd go straight to Apathy Hell, that's what.

Let that sink in for a moment or two. Any kind of winning record is very tenuous (and cyclical), but losing in the playoffs once you're there is an absolute certainty.

That's basically where we are, my friends, because Mike Brown will do nothing more than stodgily plod along.

Hook, Marvin will never be a head coach for any other team, you can mark it down


A few years back his contract was up and he had his chance, not one team even interviewed him despite 5 or 6 openings and the leagues rule that a team has to interview at least one minority, his agent even contacted the 49ers and they said no thanks

And now Marvin has exposed himself even more of a failure with much better talent the last 3 years , Marvin is hot garbage

Another spate of commentary arrives heralding his warm backside. Nary a peep of factual evidence accompanies the drivel. Mike Brown remains monolithic, unbending, unyielding. The cycle repeats itself, again and again and again.

As Hook would say, pure comedy gold.

It seems so clear now. SI's Don Banks claiming that 2016 is a "slam dunk" for heat puts it all into focus. This is the thread. We've cited examples for years and they're all over the forum. Let's collect them all in one place. A virtual Hall of Shame for clueless scribes who refuse to treat Mike Brown as the unmistakable sui generis that he is. We'll keep a listing here of everyone who makes the claim, along with dates of occurrence. (To be perpetually updated with examples past and future.) Individual quotations will come in subsequent posts. No restrictions on the time frame.

Time to catch up with Nate Davis and his weekly entries. Here's the last two:
NFL hot seat rankings: Gloom deepens for Jaguars' Gus Bradley
Nate Davis - USA TODAY Sports - 12:51 a.m. EST November 25, 2016

Thanksgiving is upon us. We're thankful that Bruce Arians is out of the hospital and apparently well enough to coach this week. And we're thankful that none of the NFL's coaches have been fired (yet) — it's a tough business after all. But the Holiday spirit will only last so long, fellas. Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings: ...

2. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: Welp. Doesn't appear that Year 14 will net playoff victory No. 1 for Lewis, who watched his two most explosive offensive players, WR A.J. Green (hamstring) and RB Gio Bernard (ACL), go down Sunday. Only five teams in the league are worse than Cincinnati (3-6-1), and the lack of established depth is showing. Whether it's enough for owner Mike Brown to veer from Lewis remains to be seen, especially since the injuries are now a built-in excuse. Last week: 3

NFL hot seat rankings: Has Packers' Mike McCarthy lost his touch?
Nate Davis - USA TODAY - Sports 3:54 a.m. EST November 18, 2016

The 2016 NFL regular season has less than two months to go, but there are sure to be some surprising openings on the coaching carousel with some unexpected twists and turns virtually inevitable. Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings: ...

3. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: His team has failed to win in four of its last five outings, unable to solve any of the NFC East teams on its schedule thus far. Lewis' team now ranks 13th in the conference, and somehow winning a weak AFC North is probably the only avenue for reaching postseason for a sixth consecutive year. But it seems increasingly likely that this undisciplined outfit may finally be in line for a major shake-up. Last week: 4

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nf ... /93859716/
Another week, another loss, and Marvin moves up the USA Today hot seat rankings. Yet the reality remains unchanged. Mike Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.

Add another scribe to the list of ignomy: Burke, Chris. He starts out like he's merely saying that Marvin Lewis should be fired. By the time he's done, it's clear he believes that Marvin Lewis is likely to be fired.
Loss to Ravens makes it very clear that Bengals should move on from Marvin Lewis
</i><blockquote><i>Quickly
Sure, the Bengals' struggles this season aren't completely coach Marvin Lewis's fault, but something needs to change in Cincinnati, especially after the most recent loss to Baltimore. And it should likely come from the very top.
</i>Chris Burke - Sports Illustrated - Sunday November 27th, 2016


<i>Maybe Marvin Lewis deserves a pass for Sunday. After all, his struggling team went on the road without stars A.J. Green and Gio Bernard, and pushed the first-place Ravens and their outstanding defense to the brink before falling 19–14.

Maybe one even could write off this entire season as a product of Cincinnati’s circumstances—injuries and disappointing play at key positions, combined with a brutal schedule (all seven teams that have beaten the Bengals are above .500).

Those arguments are understandable—fair even. But they overlook the fact that Cincinnati, one of the league’s models of consistency the past five years, has regressed so badly this season that it’s difficult to see a way forward. There must be significant changes, and the easiest spot to start would be at the top, with Lewis.

A decision to fire Lewis will not come as easily for Cincinnati as it might for other franchises with embattled coaches. He took over in 2002, after the Bengals had spent a decade-plus as an NFL bottom-feeder, and since has orchestrated seven postseason appearances and four division titles. Lewis and owner Mike Brown have, by all accounts, a tremendous working relationship, so much so that Brown allowed Lewis to craft a succession plan that would have allowed Hue Jackson to take over after the ’17 season.

What Lewis has helped accomplish in establishing Cincinnati’s homegrown, draft-and-develop model is nothing short of impressive.

Unfortunately, it also has grown stagnant. No Bengals fan needs any reminder that Lewis is 0–7 in his playoff trips; the franchise hasn’t won in the postseason since 1990. And the risk of said draft-and-develop model is that the develop part does not happen in a timely fashion.

That’s part of the explanation for how Cincinnati wound up with Cedric Ogbuehi struggling at right tackle, Green lacking a reliable No. 2 target alongside him at receiver and progression at the cornerback spot has failed to materialize.

How much of that is on Lewis? A great deal, if not all. The exact split of personnel duties within the Bengals organization always has been kept a bit of a mystery, but Brown said two years ago he had “handed off” much of the responsibility. Lewis and director of player personnel Duke Tobin call most of the shots now.

Lewis’s imprint always has been on this roster, though, which is a clear positive when things are going well and a serious issue when the train jumps the tracks, as it has during this 3-7-1 season.

For as long as Lewis and Cincinnati have been together, it has recently taken on the look of a partnership nearing its end. The rumored succession plan made that obvious, along with the three consecutive one-year contracts Lewis has signed. The latest came this past off-season, following Cincinnati dropping an opening-round playoff game for the fifth straight year. At the time, Brown hinted that there would be no guarantees beyond 2016.

“It’s a process,” Brown told Cincinnati.com. “We seem to go through our own dance. But I commend Marvin’s achievements. He’s done remarkably well with our football team here, in recent years especially. I respect him. I like him personally. He’s going to be our coach this year. That’s in the bank. Where it goes, we’ll see how it plays out.”

Nothing much has gone right since then. Worse yet, the Bengals’ sudden drop-off has made it easy to wonder if they missed their window with the current group of players and coaches.

Oft-criticized QB Andy Dalton, who incredibly had four passes batted down on Cincinnati’s final possession Sunday before fumbling, is more or less operating on a year-to-year basis himself—his $96 million contract can be wiped from the books for a minimal cap hit after this season, and for no financial penalty come 2019. If the Bengals press the reset button by cutting ties with Lewis, might they start over at quarterback, too?

That’s an issue for down the road, and it really should be one with which the next regime has to deal.

Lewis deserves all the credit in the world for building a steady, competitive foundation in a place that had gone years without seeing much success. He also has to take much of the heat now. If you’re not moving forward in the NFL, you’re moving backward. The Bengals clearly are headed in the wrong direction these days.


http://www.si.com/nfl/2016/11/27/marvin ... fl-week-12 </blockquote>

Yes, the Bungles are headed in the wrong direction these days. No, Marvin Lewis is definitely not going to be fired. Mike Brown was not dropping any such hint. That was a throw-you-bone-now-go-away comment during this past offseason. Why are all the scribes so unrelentingly clueless about Mike Brown?

Your guess is as good as mine regarding the cluelessness of the scribes psycho. It's truly hilarious to see all of them deny reality. By the way, I talked to a few people at work today who actually thought that Marvin going to be fired, Lol. I guess they're in for a surprise after all.

Don't forget video rants like those by Stephen A. Smith.
Time to catch up from last week. The win today against Philadelphia may slow the tide for now.

Thanks to Jason Marcum at Cincy Jungle we can take a peek at an entry from ESPN Insiders. The offending scribe this time is: Caplan, Adam.
Hot Seat Index: NFL coaches in danger, or safer than you think
Adam Caplan - ESPN Insiders - Nov 29, 2016

We're nearly three-quarters of the way through the 2016 NFL season, and we have a good picture of which teams have exceeded expectations and which teams are coming up short. For the latter, that means head coaches are going to get fired.

With five more weeks of the season remaining, here's an inside look at which coaches could be on the way out after the season -- and which are likely to stick around -- based on discussions with several personnel executives around the league. ...

Warming up

The Bengals are almost certain to miss the playoffs for the first time since 2010. So what has happened to this team?

From talking to a team source, the roster, especially on the defensive side of the ball, has gotten really old and needs an infusion of younger and more athletic players. While the team feels good about its deep and talented secondary, more talent needs to be added to the front seven, the source added. And on offense, the Bengals have yet to adequately replace former starting receiver Marvin Jones, who signed with the Lions in free agency.

So, what about the future of Lewis, whose contract expires after 2017?

Lewis has a larger say in the roster than he did when he landed the job in 2003, but owner Mike Brown still picks the players. And it's no secret in league circles that Brown does not like paying coaches who are not working with the Bengals. While Lewis, who is 115-101-3 in 14 years as Cincinnati's coach, has done a terrific job of turning around the team since he took over, he still has not won a playoff game. That is why he'll remain on the hot seat -- at least until Brown goes on the record and says the veteran coach will be back for another season.

Mike Brown doesn't like to fire coaches, period. And the only way Marvin will be on the hot seat is in the credulous minds of certain scribes. Mike Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.

The national scribes keep putting Marvin Lewis on the imaginary hot seat. He continues to keep his job. Another year goes by. The Bungles again fail to win a playoff game. Another spate of commentary arrives heralding his warm backside. Nary a peep of factual evidence accompanies the drivel. Mike Brown remains monolithic, unbending, unyielding. The cycle repeats itself, again and again and again.

As Hook would say, pure comedy gold.

It seems so clear now. SI's Don Banks claiming that 2016 is a "slam dunk" for heat puts it all into focus. This is the thread. We've cited examples for years and they're all over the forum. Let's collect them all in one place. A virtual Hall of Shame for clueless scribes who refuse to treat Mike Brown as the unmistakable sui generis that he is. We'll keep a listing here of everyone who makes the claim, along with dates of occurrence. (To be perpetually updated with examples past and future.) Individual quotations will come in subsequent posts. No restrictions on the time frame.

Last Tuesday on the Bengals Beat Podcast, Dehner said that Marvin Lewis will be on the hot seat if he loses to the Cleveland Browns. Check it out.

https://audioboom.com/posts/5336663-ben ... -3-7-1?t=0

Nope. He could lose by 30 points against Cleveland and still keep his job.

This one is pretty borderline. With hot seat proclamations by beat writers being Cardinal sins, we'll wait to make a call.

This happens to be Browns Week, by the way.

NFL hot seat rankings: Will Monday night disaster cost Jets' Todd Bowles?
Nate Davis - USA Today Sports - 3:58 a.m. EST December 7, 2016

We're down to the final four ... no, not the final four college football teams (don't get us started), but the final four weeks of the NFL's 2016 regular season. And while some unexpected security for the Los Angeles Rams' Jeff Fisher surfaced over the weekend, several of his peers can only dream of an extension ... or even another year on the job. Here's the latest installment of our weekly hot seat rankings: ...

3. Marvin Lewis, Cincinnati Bengals: Over the next four weeks, his team will play three division leaders. But the most stressful contest may be Sunday's visit to Cleveland against his good friend, Hue Jackson, and the winless Browns. If the Bengals get victimized by their in-state rivals, who long ago dismissed owner Mike Brown's legendary father, Lewis could find himself in even hotter water. Last week: 2


http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nf ... /95030340/
Part of me really wants to see the Bungs get victimized by their in-state rivals. Imagine the deafening refrain that will ensue about job insecurity. Even the local beat writers may well join in. Then everybody looks ridiculous a few days into the offseason when Marvin re-ups for another year. Because, as you know...

Mike Brown will never fire Marvin Lewis.
