It was a very interesting episode of The Orange and Black Insider this week, as fans were looking to vent about a number of issues. At 5-8, it’s an easy position to take, especially as this was a follow-up to a 6-9-1 campaign from 2016.

Unfortunately, the focus in the middle of December isn’t on a postseason push, but rather what the team needs to do in an effort to fix its multitude of issues. Effort and the coaching staff are under scrutiny right now, but nothing should be left off of the table for discussion.

Among the topics we touched on this week were:

  • After the loss to the Bears, Marvin Lewis claimed that it wasn’t his job to motivate his players. Is he correct?
  • In the first step in a series we’re starting, we look at the coaching staff. Which members should be shown the door in 2018?
  • Just what was the impact of Mike Zimmer on the Bengals and what is he doing right with the Vikings?
  • Are Andy Dalton’s mechanics slipping? If so, why?
