UPDATE (2:50 PM): Well, turns out that Lewis and the Bengals aren't getting along so well. Adam Schefter updates his earlier report about Lewis rejoining the Bengals with the news that Lewis "left the Bengals campus" after the two sides "could not agree on [the] franchise's direction and his future is in serious jeopardy there." 

In other words, we're right back where we were about 24 hours ago, which is to say the Bengals will be hiring someone else and Marvin's somehow still holding all the cards in the situation.
--------
Marvin Lewis and the Cincinnati Bengals were expected to part ways now that his contract is up. But something weird happened along the way to him becoming "unemployed" -- leverage seemed to shift from the Bengals (who were firing him in a passive-aggressive way) to Lewis (who suddenly had tons of demands if he was going to stay).

It appears the Bengals might have caved to those demands (either that or they got scared when he was linked to the Pitt job and the 49ers job), because Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that within 24 hours the Bengals and Lewis "expect to resolve any issues" between them and that Lewis will remain as head coach of the Bengals.

Clearly, this is a dramatic shift in where the Bengals believed to be heading, but perhaps it has as much to do with Lewis being successful in Cincinnati (no, seriously) as it does with the current labor situation.

Both of those factors make Lewis an attractive candidate to return to the Bengals. Or perhaps Mike Brown didn't feel another candidate would be interested in what's always been a tough place to win. Either way, a surprise turn of events as it appears Marvin Lewis is returning to Cincinnati.

Shin guards AND Knee Pads?

Do you think Marvin was wearing the Wilson Knee Pads AND Shin guards when he was "fighting" for his job. I wonder if he cleaned up his chin / jaw region yet. Wow. That just happened. Wow.

Report: Lewis bolts on Bengals amid negotiations

Judging by the sad, defensive replies from steeler fans, Lewis' signing must have you knuckleheads concerned. For the record, Lewis is from Pittsburg and Roethlisberger is from a town 2 hours north of Cincinnati. The steelers would still stink, (remember 6 and 10 cowher) except for Big Ben. Finally, the Bengals won the north in 2005 and 2009 under Lewis, and would have run the table if not for the dirty tactics of Kimo von dracula.

Report: Lewis bolts on Bengals amid negotiations

Every single season the Bengals is suppose to do better than the last season but at the end, they're either do worst or about the same. If Lewis stays, it will be the same results by the end of the season, again. If the Bengals wants to see a diffrent result, they need a new coach as Lewis is not going to make them any better or any worst.

Report: Lewis bolts on Bengals amid negotiations

Like everyone expected, he is going to run out on Cincicrappi and land a real job.  My guess is he will end up in Oakland or even Miami.  He has had enough of the ineptitude that embodies the Bungles.  I don't blame him a bit.  
Now they can hire Rich Rod to replace him in cincy.
