So in Marvin we trust right? We all know what Marvin inherited and that before his arrival this team was the laughing stock of not just the NFL but all sports.  Well it’s been ten years, and for all the great wins, and playoff trips he has brought, what the fans are still waiting for is the playoff win.

Lewis is 0-4 in the playoffs, some would argue that had his quarterback not been hit low in 2005 the 20+ year playoff drought would be over.  Other than that, the other playoff games have not been close, Lewis needs to have his team and coaches ready to play from the opening whistle.

They have the roster, they have a top 5 defense and top 10 offense, the time is now if he doesn’t get the win on Sunday, the big question will be when if ever will the Bengals win a playoff game.  That’s it I’m putting it on the 11 year head coach and no one else.

So………… in Marvin we trust.
