Marvin Lewis

This will raise some eyebrows. A case can be made for both Forrest Gregg and Sam Wyche to receive this hypothetical honor before Lewis. However, Lewis took over a 2-14 team when he was hired in early 2003.

The organization was widely considered the worst in all of pro sports at the time. Lewis is the all-time franchise leader in wins with 131. He never one a playoff game. Still, Lewis has seven playoff appearances. That matches all other Bengals head coaches combined. Everything is still fresh since Lewis was let go after this past season. History will remember him more fondly than the fan base does right now.
