Former Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis in 2017.
The Falcons may not have much to look forward to in the playoffs, but there will be bigger changes. In the coming weeks we will find out who will be the head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.
While there are many candidates for the coaching role, ESPN analysts Jeremy Fowler and Dan Graziano gave their final thoughts on who will take on the role.
The Falcons can do a lot, but let’s give them the candidate with the most experience in building and maintaining a cohesive culture. Lewis with a team that functions just as strangely as the Bengalis. I think he’s a good choice.
Marvin Lewis is not the young and talented coach the fans might want, but he certainly has a lot of experience under his wing.

Marvin Lewis Abstract
Lewis hasn’t coached the NFL since 2018, when he was head coach of the Cincinnati Bengals. He led Cincy for nearly a decade, posting a 0.518 win percentage during that time and leading the Bengal to five consecutive playoff appearances. What stands out as a sore thumb, however, is his record of 0-7 in the playoffs.
What makes up for it is that he’s finished college. Lewis arrives in the state of Arizona in 2019 as a special advisor for head coach Herm Edwards, which makes sense because the two men have been friends for a long time.
A year later, Lewis was appointed defence coordinator for the Sun Devils.
The university football season was a COWID-19, but the Sun Devils were successful in all four games they played. The ASU defense achieved an average of only 23.25 points per match in difficult times.
Lewis’ decade in the NFL, combined with his university experience, makes a strong case for the Falcons.
Falcons also investigate package
Since the Falcons also want a new GM, they would also be interested in a global deal. As part of the package, former NFL general manager John Dorsey will be the general manager and Eric Benimi will coach Kansas City’s main offensive line.
Dorsey was general manager in Kansas City before she joined the Browns. Benimi and Dorsey met in Kansas.
Dorsey signed with KC for Tyreek Hill, Travis Kelce and Kareem Hunt. He brought Hunt to Cleveland and drew several other players who helped the Browns reach the play-offs.
When Dorsey left for Cleveland, Benimi stayed. At the age of 51, he spent eight seasons with Reed and the KC leadership. During this period Bieniemi was in charge of a solid rearguard that included defenders like Jamaal Charles.
And don’t forget that Benimi was recently the offensive coordinator for the Super Bowl candidate/champion.
Let’s hope that the Falcons make a decision soon and that they are the ones who will rebuild the franchise in the right direction.
