09:02 AM ET 12.26 | With his future being a daily subject since mid-November, Bengals coach Marvin Lewis doesn't sound isn't sounding like today's game against San Diego is going to be his final one on the home sideline. Following Friday's practice at Paul Brown Stadium, Lewis voiced optimism about returning for a ninth season. Asked if he felt as if the end of his eight-year tenure was near, Lewis replied, "I don't think so. That's not the plan." Lewis did say that he has talked with Mike Brown about his the future but that no decisions have been made.

Ha, I don't know about that one.

I think they have to blow the whole thing up and start over, coach included.

It's amazing how the fortunes of an entire team can turn one a single event. The Bengals were on the verge of being a SB contender just a few years ago, and that knee injury to Palmer in the playoff game against the Steelers completely derailed them. They've never recovered.

Sorry coach...b'bye! You can join Jason Garrett and a host of others.

Why not - no one else wants to coach 'em...

Oops, that should have read, "turn on a single event". I sound like the interns this morning.

Hey bro. I hope you didn't waste any time watching that disaster. Thankfully I only read about it. Spent my time with family instead. Merry Christmas!

Think and Bengals used in the same sentence? Who woulda thunk it?

Spent time with the family. We watched that disaster. Only happy one was my grandson, who hates the Cowboys.

And so, someone got everything they wanted.

JJ was heard to say..."Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night...effin kicker"!!! Looks like my prediction a few months ago of a Dave Campo 5-11 season is dead on.

I sympathize. Don't think of it as a loss; just think of it as a higher draft choice.

Should be a fun offseason anyway.

Hates the Cowboys!!! isn't that blaspheme in Texas!

"That's not the plan".

Maybe not your plan, Marv, but I think Mike Brown's plan included a few more wins and playoff victories up to this point.

He roots for the Chiefs.

As long as I see no goats milling around his front yard I think he will actually be OK.

They had a plan? Ohh..the T.O./Ocho show. Niiice!

December 26, 2010  09:43 AM ET

My guess is that Lewis stays, because the Bungholes don't want to pay for a coaching upgrade.
