Marvin Lewis coy about potential Bengals staff changes

After a disappointing 0-2 start, a player described the #Cincinnati Bengals situation as "toxic" while the team fired offensive coordinator Ken Zampese. The Bengals are the first team since the Philadelphia Eagles in 1939 to fail to score a touchdown in their first two games at home.

In two games this season, both at home, the Bengals have yet to find the end zone, and have turned the ball over six times.

After earning the offensive coordinator job last season, Zampese lasted just 18 games on the job.

Head coach Marvin Lewis was coy when asked about potential staff changes, but ruled nothing out and indicated that something had to change.

"We have a lot of talent on offense, and we need to keep working to take full advantage of the personnel we have", Lewis said. Lewis added he's confident that the change in offensive coordinator will bring results by the next time the team takes the field on September 24 against the Green Bay Packers.

Following a four-interception game in Week 1, quarterback Andy Dalton connected on 20 of 35 passes for just 224 yards-not miserable numbers, considering he managed not to turn the ball over this time around, but the team was bad on third downs (4 of 15) and Dalton did stuff likes this.

"I am grateful for this opportunity to serve the Bengals organization as offensive coordinator", Lazor said in a team news release.

It's hard to tell if Green is more frustrated with the play calling or Dalton.

Zampese, 50, was the Bengals' quarterbacks coach from 2003-15.

Green's Cincinnati Bengals are 0-2 to start the 2017 National Football League season.

"We are playing like shit right now", Green said, not stopping there.

"What we need to do - the (offensive) philosophy - is to score as many points as we can to beat the Packers".
