  • Time for Bengals to budge bench Andy Dalton for AJ McCarron

After an enigmatic start to the season, the Bengals have announced that Ken Zampese is out as the team's offensive coordinator.

The Bengals said quarterbacks coach Bill Lazor will immediately assume coordinator duties in place of Zampese, who was with the Bengals for 15 seasons; he started as their quarterbacks coach before being promoted to offensive coordinator last season.?

The team entered Thursday night's home game against the Houston Texans with a decent shot at winning, but for the second consecutive week, the Cincinnati offense was lifeless.

It is the first time in its 50-year history that the team has failed to score a touchdown in its first two games.

After earning the offensive coordinator job last season, Zampese lasted just 18 games on the job.

"No, I'm not anxious about Andy", Marvin Lewis said. "We have a lot of talent on offense, and we need to keep working to take full advantage of the personnel we have", said Lewis.

The Cincinnati Bengals have been awful to start the season, but Andy Dalton's job is not in jeopardy.

Despite all the playoff failures over the past several years, there have been two things that have remained unchanged for the Cincinnati Bengals: Andy Dalton and Marvin Lewis. They did it by scoring 9 points in two games. He joined the Bengals as quarterbacks coach in 2003 and waited in line behind Bob Bratkowski, Jay Gruden and Hue Jackson for the OC position.

Lazor said he met with the offensive staff Friday and will do so again today, then meet with the players Monday.

It is the second consecutive season in which an National Football League offensive coordinator has been fired after a Thursday night loss in Week 2. Green was blunt in his assessment of the Bengals' play following the game.

"What we need to do - the (offensive) philosophy - is to score as many points as we can to beat the Packers". "We're not doing that right now".
