The Lazor Effect – Winners and Losers as Cincinnati Changes Coordinators

After the Bengals emulated the 1939 Philadelphia Eagles in starting 0-2 at home with zero touchdowns, the writing was pretty much on the wall for someone within the organization. Head coach Marvin Lewis decided that offensive coordinator Ken Zampese would be the fall guy, apparently fearing a mutiny if he didn’t cut bait after 18 games in the post. In his stead, the team moved quarterback coach Bill Lazor into the OC’s offense, as they look to jumpstart a unit that is averaging 4.3 yards per play through two games. So who stands to gain from this move, and who will be upset to see Zampese gone?

  1. Very interesting opinion on Gio.. I still don't understand why Hill continues to start for Bengals as Gio seems to be a better back. Even during Hue's time as OC, Gio never really took over, which makes me feel like this is a Marvin Lewis thing.. That said, Gio may be much cheaper to acquire compared to Mixon and hedge on it per your analysis.
