Five NFL head coaches next on the chopping block

This is a move that’s about five years too late already. The Cincinnati Bengals have been a constant disappointment to their fan base ever since Lewis took over 2003. Since then, he’s put together a record of 130-119-3 during the regular season and has not won a playoff game in seven tries.

The Bengals have really cratered since opening the season with a 4-1 start. Since then, they’re 1-6. And while injuries have been a factor, it’s particularly alarming that Cincinnati’s defense ranks dead last in both total defense and points allowed. Remember, Lewis is a defensive-minded head coach.


Then there’s the matter of Lewis’ constant enabling of players whom other teams wouldn’t even consider bringing in due to off-field issues. He simply has no business coaching this team any longer.
