Marvin Lewis: He Drove Fans Away

During his weekly Monday news conference, Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was asked about how to get fans back in the stadium. This is what he said:

"He did a good job driving (the fans) away and he was very wrong. What will bring the fans back is winning. I shouldn't have been thinking out loud like that."

Lewis didn't say who "he" is during the conference but "he," in my opinion, could only be two people. Bengals owner Mike Brown or former quarterback Carson Palmer.

Of course that's speculation on my part, but who else could it be? What other "he" would be responsible for driving fans away from the stadium? 

If it's Carson it's one of the first shots we've heard Lewis make about the former Bengals quarterback, who angered many fans by quitting on them in the offseason and left his team high and dry. But what if it's not Carson?

If it's Brown, does it mean that there is dissension in the ranks of the Bengals front office or was this just a slip of the tongue while Lewis was thinking out loud.

Either way, Lewis's comments about "he" are pretty interesting. I doubt we hear anymore more on this but Lewis is right about one thing, winning will bring fans back to the stadium.
