Here’s one for you old school Philadelphia Eagles fans.
Nothing hypes a party up like a DJ’s decision to drop one of those old school bangers in the middle of his set for absolutely no reason. You’ve seen the roof go off of the party, and for you more experienced cats, that’s probably what it felt like when you got to this portion of the story and saw Marvin Lewis.
He hasn’t coached an NFL game since December 30th of 2018, and there’s no real argument that proves that he couldn’t walk onto an NFL field right now and coach Josh McDaniels right out of one of those visors of his.
No, he never won a playoff, but come on, it’s the Cincinnati Bengals. They haven’t truly been a factor late in January since Sam Wyche was walking around. Nobody wins there. Yet in still, Lewis earned the Associated Press’ NFL Coach of the Year Award in 2009, a career winning percentage of just under 52 percent, and seven division titles while battling the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens for 16 years.
The fact that he isn’t an NFL head coach somewhere right now is almost laughable. Meanwhile, Josh McDaniels coached for two seasons with the Denver Broncos, tallied an 11-17 record, and was fired before his second season was even over.
Are the Eagles considering Marvin Lewis? No, they are not. We just wanted to show you how easy it is to find someone better than McDaniels. Seriously, you don’t even have to try that hard.
