Marvin Lewis on disappointing season: ‘You either do or you don’t. And this year we didn’t.’


With the possibility existing that Sunday’s win over the Lions was the final home game in which Marvin Lewis will be the head coach of the Bengals, Lewis was asked in his postgame press conference if he was emotional.

“Emotional? Why? Do you know something I don’t know,” he said with a laugh.

Prior to that, he struck a more serious tone.

“I know it hasn’t been a year that any of us expected, but our guys came out today, hung in here and kept it alive,” Lewis said. “That’s what it is in the NFL — it’s a year-to-year, day-to-day (situation). We’re not done yet, but we did not (give up). Our goal as an organization is to be world champions. We’re not going to get there this year. That’s my job, to get the team to win the Super Bowl, and we’re short of that this year.

“That’s all I can say,” he added. “There’s nothing in between as a coach — you either do or you don’t. And this year we didn’t.”

The Bengals wrap up the regular season Sunday at Baltimore.
