The Orange and Black Insider Bengals podcast: 10/9 livestream

As the Bengals currently sit at 0-5, we question where we think the team would be under Marvin Lewis, while also looking ahead to the clash against the Ravens. We also welcome in special guest, Evan McPhillips from Pro Football Focus to give us some insight on team data.

While we figured the early part of the season may have been a struggle, I’m not sure an 0-5 start to the Zac Taylor era is what anyone envisioned. Instead of being a surprise contender this year, the Cincinnati Bengals are now in a fight for the first overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.

With the rookie head coach getting out-matched, some fans are swooning for the days of Marvin Lewis. In the aftermath of the loss to the Cardinals, we take a look at where this team may have been, if Lewis stuck around for 2019.

The Orange and Black Insider crew also welcomes in Evan McPhillips of Pro Football Focus. He specializes in the Bengals and AFC North for PFF, so we have quite a bit to chat about, in terms of team analytics.

The OBI also asks if Bengals fans or Browns fans have it worse off through the first five weeks of the year, while looking ahead to Week 6 against Baltimore, as the division still seems up in the air.
