What's going on with Childress and Bengals?

Posted on: January 21, 2011 2:54 pm
 
Brad Childress was in Cincinnati Thursday and had dinner with head coach Marvin Lewis, but the question is: Why?

The Bengals already have an offensive coordinator in Bob Bratkowski, though he's not a popular one with Cincinnati fans. Childress could be in line for that job, but the Bengals would have to fire Bratkowski first -- and there's no indication that will happen.

If Childress does not hook on there, look for Philadelphia to consider bringing him back to work with coach Andy Reid, in much the same capacity as Marty Mornhinweg when Childress was the offensive coordinator there. Morhinweg was an offensive consultant, and the partnership worked seemlessly. Now, Mornhinweg is the team's offensive coordinator, and Childress is a coach without a job.

For now.

I'm truly shocked that Lewis is still HC. Flabbergasted, really.

But if they do rid themselves of the two divas, I think they'll come along nicely, so maybe they're giving him another year to 'wait and see'.

Lewis and Childress are friends but if I was the offensive coordinator I would be worried because the Bengals stunk on offense this past year.  Maybe if they get rid of the reality show hosts they might be better off.  Without T.O. and Ocho Cinco at the end of the season Palmer didn't have to try and force feed the ball to them and instead just thew to the open wr and the offense looked alot better with the noname wr's playing.  I am surprised that Lewis is still the coach because he has been on the chopping block for a few years now.

Brad Childress is convincing Marvin Lewis to sign Boomer Esiason and bringing in Cris Collinsworth to be that deep threat and he will then trade Collinsworth to the Saints and a third round pick because Collinsworth got the Bengals chant wrong he kept chanting Who Dat instead of Who Dey
