Lewis fires Frazier as Bengals' defensive coordinator

    CINCINNATI -- Coach Marvin Lewis is tired of watching his defense get pushed around. The Bengals fired defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier on Wednesday, the first change to Lewis' staff since their 8-8 finish. Assistant coach Chuck Bresnahan is the leading candidate on staff to replace him.

    I think this is a smart move on the Bengals part.....hopefully now they can make an attempt at stopping the run.

    The writing was on the wall when Bresnahan was hired in the first place.

    A d-Coor that gives up 50 to the Browns should never work in the field again.

    Ironic then at his Monday presser Lewis was point blank asked


    "Any chances of changes for any of the coordinators, offense, defense, special teams?"
    One word answer - "no"

    Then within a couple of days out goes Frazier stage left.

    Oh yes:

    scooter -- that d-coor in the Browns game they lost was none other than Lewis himself.

    Nope. He took over in the FIRST cleveland game. Probably right after the D gave up a 99 yard TD to the mighty Browns.

    :roll2:

    Which tibor was the game they lost to the Browns.

    I'll cut you some slack on the count that English is avowedly your second language.

    Glad to see Marvin isn't going to take any halfass performances from his coaching staff. Given his rep as a D-coordinator, I wonder if he intentionally gave Frazier a long rope to hang himself with by intentionally being hands-off as regards the defensive play calling?

    If we can draft and sign a couple of good DTs and a stud MLB in free agency, the D should come around nicely.....

    The browns won the first game 34-17 in which Lewis acted as DC. The bengals won the second game fiftysomething to 48, the game in which Frazier was DC. So lewis must be two tds better.

    Yep. I was confused b/c you were responding to the point about the D giving up 50 to the Browns (which was the game they won).
