Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis is most definitely on the hot seat after his team started the season 5-8 and is completely out of the AFC Playoff race.

That was brought to an entirely new level following an embarrassing 33-7 home loss to the last-place Chicago Bears this past Sunday.

Now, in talking about the performance of his team and his responsibilities as head coach, Lewis has seemingly gone off the deep end.

“WELL, YOU DON’T WANT THIS. I DON’T THINK ANYBODY DOES,” LEWIS SAID, VIA CINCY JUNGLE. “THESE GUYS HAVE A LOT TO PLAY FOR, AND IT’S NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY TO GET THEM — AS I SAID — TO TURN UP THE MUSIC. (WE’VE GOT TO) FIGURE OUT A WAY TO GET MOMENTUM GOING AND PUT GOOD FOOTBALL PLAYS TOGETHER. IF WE GOT YOUNG GUYS IN THERE, THEY’RE GOING TO HAVE TO GROW UP IN A HURRY, BECAUSE WE ARE GOING TO PLAY THREE GOOD FOOTBALL TEAMS.”

Actually, Marvin, part of being a head coach in the NFL is to get your players motivated to…play.
