Poll: Did Bengals make the right call firing Ken Zampese?

After the Bengals failed to reach the end zone in two games, Cincinnati fired Ken Zampese.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

After a stagnant start to the 2017 season, the Cincinnati Bengals decided their offense needed an improvement.

Andy Dalton and the offense failed to reach the end zone once in their losses to the Ravens and Texans, and they could not win on field goals alone. Against the Ravens, the Bengals failed to even get on the board, but the team’s offense moved the ball throughout both games.

The problem was they struggled to seal the deal and find the end zone. A Tyler Eifert penalty negated the one time the Bengals got into the end zone through two weeks, and red-zone interceptions plagued the Bengals in the opening game of the season.

On a long week with Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers looming in the distance, the Bengals Front Office has decided to make a change, firing offensive coordinator Ken Zampese. This decision could be a positive for a Bengals team that fans are getting frustrated with, and even players are speaking out against.

A.J. Green was visibly frustrated following the loss to the Texans and was quoted saying, “Offensively, it’s not on one player. We’re just not having success now. We’re not executing.”

In a poll last season by Cincy Jungle, fans voted 57 percent for Zampese not being the offensive coordinator to start the season, and now after two games, he’s gone.

So, we’ll ask you guys, is this the right move for Cincinnati?
