Bengals drop offensive coordinator Ken Zampese after 0-2 touchdown-less start

The Bengals on Friday fired offensive coordinator?Ken Zampese following the team's lackluster 0-2 start, marking the first time in the 50-year history of the organization that a coordinator has been fired during the season. "But I feel it best for the football team to breathe new life into the offense, and that's why I am making the change". Less than 24 hours later, they dumped offensive coordinator Ken Zampese.

Presumably leading to Green's frustration, Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton has struggled mightily out of the gate this season.

He initially joined Cincinnati in 2003 as a quarterbacks coach.

United States options on North Korea 'effective and overwhelming': Donald Trump
Though they aren't their top choices for the region, Haley and McMaster said, they are available to the President. Still, a reporter noted North Korea's behavior isn't really changing.


"Today, I'm really thinking more about Ken having been through it from the other side and knowing how much he put into it and feeling badly and trying to be humane about that", Lazar added about Zampese, according to the Enquirer.

Head coach Marvin Lewis believes Lazor can change that. The Bengals have lost the first two games of its young season, including its home opener, 20-0, against the Baltimore Ravens.

His focus, right now, is on the Bengals' next game September 24 against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

President Trump calls for British police to be 'proactive' after terror attack
The Metropolitan Police tweeted that they have not yet identified the attacker but an investigation is underway. Scotland Yard also reportedly commented on Trump's tweet saying that it was "unhelpful and pure speculation".


Green said he believes he "could have made a lot of plays in the game" if given the opportunities, and the Bengals have to find a way to get their playmakers the ball: "It's a superstar-driven league".

Lewis is the NFL's second-longest tenured coach, in a lame-duck season after a 6-9-1 finish in 2016, and is thought to need a return to the playoffs to be back in 2018.

Lazor has previous experience at the position, running the Miami Dolphins offense in 2014 and 2015. He looked up at the ceiling momentarily, sighed, and began answering questions about why the offense hadn't scored a touchdown in two games.

Chelsea's Drinkwater sidelined for a month due to injury
For sure this type of situation is very dangerous and yes, your mind goes in this situation. I think it's not an advantage [that they played on Thursday ahead of the game].
