Amid touchdownless season, Cincinnati Bengals fire offensive coordinator

Time for Bengals to budge bench Andy Dalton for AJ McCarron

The Cincinnati Bengals are already making major changes to their offense after a rough start to the 2017 season. Zampese, who came to the team 15 seasons ago as the quarterbacks coach, will be replaced by Bill Lazor, the team's current quarterbacks coach.

According to Florio, the site was told by a league source that the firing of Zampese essentially became necessary after head coach Marvin Lewis faced "a near mutiny" in the locker room. "Be dominant as the other side". In their first two games, the Bengals generated just nine total points with an average of 258 yards and four sacks per game.

"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. Lewis is in the final year of his contract.

The Bengals lost 13-9 to the Houston Texans on Thursday, dropping to 0-2 after a second successive home loss, which followed a 20-0 shutout at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens.

Former Georgia star wide receiver A.J. Green is not happy, and there is a good reason why.

Lazor said he met with the offensive staff Friday and will do so again today, then meet with the players Monday. "You are not going to win without them.Being one of the leaders of the offense I feel like - no disrespect to nobody else - that ball should be mine somewhere somehow".

Much of the Bengals' struggle can be attributed to poor quarterback play and coaching, but the true cause can easily be traced back to Bengals super fan Woody Harrelson. Lazor said he wasn't prepared to answer if that will continue.

Through two games, the 29-year-old pass catcher has produced only 10 receptions on 18 targets for 141 yards. From 2010-12, he was offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at the University of Virginia.
