I just read that and my reaction is basically the same as yours.

Listen, I was fine with keeping him after last year.. But basically saying he's gone and then bringing him back? That sounds more like something i'd expect from Cleveland.

My reaction was surprise as well. Didnt I see reports a couple of weeks ago that Lewis was retiring/stepping away?

People are going to confuse Lewisville with Louisville. Bad enough they aren't but 90 minutes apart.

For all the flack he takes, Lewis is still the best coach the Bengals have ever had. They could do a lot worse, and have done a lot worse too many times to count. Personally, i would like to see Lewis go some place else and be a head coach to see just how good he might be... He certainly isn't getting the best hand dealt to him at Cincy..

Lewis is a good coach maybe not a great head coach but come on! They can find better at this point.

The Bucs considered hiring him back in early 2000s to replace Dungy before he (Lewis) went to Cincy. First the Bucs agreed w/ Parcells, he backed out, then they got Gruden who although won the Super Bowl, didn't get the most out of the Bucs after that and left the team in a mess when fired.

I always wondered how Lewis would have done had he been hired by the Bucs back then. He sure has had a long run!
