Cincinnati Bengals sack offensive coordinator

Frank Victores  AP

Zampese will be replaced by quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor who joined Cincy last season when Zampese was promoted to offensive coordinator. Then Thursday night, the Bengals managed just three field goals in a 13-9 loss to the Houston Texans.

The Bengals did not miss an extra point to get to nine either, which means they are touchdown-less on the season despite having played both their games in the friendly home confines of Paul Brown Stadium.

Dalton threw four interceptions and lost a fumble in the season opening 20-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Second-year offensive coordinator Ken Zampese is feeling the brunt of the criticism, and after a 2016 in which the Bengals finished 13th in yards but only 24th in points, red-zone efficiency was identified as the big problem to address in the offseason.

Meanwhile, Marvin Lewis remains head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals.

"We have a lot of talent on offense, and we need to keep working to take full advantage of the personnel we have", Lewis said. Green was not afraid to say what he thought of the team's performance during the first two weeks of NFL football.

Former Georgia WR A.J. Green, one of the biggest stars of the Cincinnati offense, has been held to only 10 catches for 141 yards so far, and he's exhausted of not having the ball in his hands. "I just go out there and run the play". Bill Lazor has great experience in the league and as a coordinator, and I feel Bill can progress our offense the way we need. Last year, the Buffalo Bills fired Greg Roman after a loss to the Jets.

In fact, according to Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer, Lewis has assured Dalton of his position as the Bengals signal-caller.

The Cincinnati Bengals are already making major changes to their offense after a rough start to the 2017 season.
