Bengals UK reaction to Marvin Lewis news

News broke this morning that Marvin Lewis is to leave his position as head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals after the 2017 season to pursue other opportunities. His 15-year tenure at Paul Brown Stadium has seen him accumulate a 123-111-3 record, four AFC North division wins, one Coach Of The Year title and seven play-off appearances. As we all know, he is 0-7 in the play-offs. Here’s what the Bengals UK panel had to say about the news. Continue reading

Week 12 predictions: Browns at Bengals

 

The next couple of games will define the Bengals’ season. Win today and pull off a victory against the Steelers on Monday Night Football, and suddenly the Bengals are, remarkably, in with a shout to get to the play-offs.

Midseason Bengals UK Roundtable Debate: Where Are We And Where Are We Going?

Full disclosure: we all love the Bengals and will stick with them through thick and thin. We always have and always will. There’s been some good times in the past decade – winning records, unprecedented, consecutive play-off appearances, and a new batch of star players that have had us on the edge of our seats. But there’s been some lean times, too. Such is the life of a pro-sports team fan. We arrive at our annual midseason roundtable in bad shape and coming off an awful loss to Jacksonville, where pretty much everything that could go wrong did go wrong. So where are we, what are we and where are going from here at this midpoint part of the season? Continue reading
