Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvel Lewish could be back next season despite a 1-10-1 season. Yesterday Bengals president Mike Brown asked if coach Marvin Lewis will get a chance to overcome this 1-10-1 season: “You cannot answer that question without undercutting someone. I am not going down that path. I think in many ways he has done an incredibly good job. Our players still try hard. He has them out there trying to the best of their ability.”… “I am not going to give one of those endorsements. They (Lewis and his coaching staff) are the same people who have been here for years now. They coach the same. They are teachers. They do their jobs.” — Cincinnati Enquirer
Willis McGahee has been injury prone this season and there has been some issues behind the scenes, which has led to speculation that the Ravens may part ways with McGahee. Still, it will be costly to cut McGahee following the season. Ravens head coach Jim Harbaugh reiterated that McGahee remains in the Ravens’ plans for the stretch run. “I don’t know what everybody is talking about,” Harbaugh said. “We really like Willis McGahee. We think he’s a really good player, and we plan on Willis being a huge part of what we’re doing in December. “He’s been practicing very well. He’s getting stronger and stronger throughout the course of the season, and there’s no question in my mind that Willis=2 0McGahee, a very talented back, is going to be a huge part of what we’re doing here down the stretch.” — Carroll County Times
