Bengals drop offensive coordinator Ken Zampese after 0-2 touchdown-less start

Bengals drop offensive coordinator Ken Zampese after 0-2 touchdown-less start

"I need the ball in my hands somehow, somewhere, we gotta find a way to get me the ball", Green told reporters after the loss.

I don't normally like to make references to Mike Florio and Pro Football Talk directly unless it concerns an interview on the show or on topics pertaining to legal matters and things like that, but in this case I have to.

"Bill Lazor has great experience in the league and as a coordinator, and I feel Bill can progress our offense the way we need".

Cincinnati has gotten off to one of the worst offensive starts in team history.

Second-year offensive coordinator Ken Zampese is feeling the brunt of the criticism, and after a 2016 in which the Bengals finished 13th in yards but only 24th in points, red-zone efficiency was identified as the big problem to address in the offseason.

With their 13-9 loss to the Texans last night, the Bengals have achieved some ignominious ineffectuality marks.

Lewis is surely hoping a change in the coaching staff can spark the offense moving forward, but likely feels his own seat warming up, especially since he's in the final year of his contract.

One player pleading for the "new life" Lewis mentioned is star receiver A.J. Green, one of the Bengals' best offensive talents, who was frustrated about his targets after Thursday's loss. "I just go out there and run the play".

Lewis is in his 15th season as head coach of the Bengals.

This is the second season in a row a coordinator was sacked following a Thursday-night loss in Week 2. Ryan was ultimately fired in Week 16, but the Bills did respond to Anthony Lynn replacing Roman by winning their next four games and averaging more than 23 points per contest.

Presumably leading to Green's frustration, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has struggled mightily out of the gate this season.

"We are playing like sh- right now", Green said, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. "If you look at it like that, then, yes, we're not scoring".
