Cincinnati Bengals Week 15: Someone Has To Go

Taking The Blame?

Maybe it’s years of looking at the same old story. When you know the ending, it’s hard to get fired up. That’s how many Bengals fans are feeling. Ending the year with wins over Houston and Baltimore will get the momentum going for next year. But, is that enough?

Marvin and Co. owe it to the fans. These last two games should be a showcase of what this entire year was supposed to be. The playoffs are a bust. Bring out the youngsters and let them get some reps. Let A.J. Green get his 1,000 yards and sit him down. There’s no need to risk injury.

Lewis has stated that he’ll take the blame. He’s admitted to not doing his part, per  ESPN 1530’s Mo Egger.

"“Well, it is hard, because I feel like I’ve not found the right buttons to push to get us to where we need to be. I always take credit for that. I’m never going to blame somebody else. It’s my job to figure out why we don’t get it to where it needs to be. We’ve been short.”"

Next: Second Half Shutout

The window has closed. I said it before. Yet, the morbid curiosity to watch the home team struggle brings fans back. Let’s try something new. This offseason…no more contract extensions or ooey gooey inside hirings. Someone has to go. But, that’s the nature of the NFL.
