Bonnie Bernstein filling in for Dan Patrick on the phone lines now. Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis -- and forcefully coach. Really just terrific season with two rookies at the Helm. On offense. And fortunately follow the Texans. Act two before the season started. You're starting a rookie quarterback. Carson Palmer's insisting he's retiring you have no idea what you've got. Won't -- your personal expectations. For the season. It really. I've bought it we would be I would be all right this bit. Date and choosing Andy Dalton we chose the quarterback we felt that it bit. Early in his career as a rookie if necessary. He would he could be our starting quarterback you'd be very efficient -- up and he take care of the football and you know that we would if we could play great defense to carry the football. Offensively we would be fine. When somebody put that chip on you like they did you got up to those expectations and Jonathan for sure. -- he's been excellent it was. They were able to gain a guy they could play his position and a great job of the ball in the air. He's become -- tremendous tackler so it's been you know obviously bittersweet. Because we lost it was like -- a connecting to Bentley and but you know if I'm happy for Johnson and gazette and his family. Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis Bonnie Bernstein on the DP show we talked so frequently -- about turning points in games and I thought the interception it. And never was like Chris Crocker in the third quarter could have been the turning point isn't -- from the flood gates really openings for Houston. How much did you replay -- through your mind in the last week. I I would say yeah you're right by there was that viewpoint and you know obviously the -- -- -- what made at the end of the first down with a huge play in the game. Critical point yet to eighteen just battling now. You know we get the penalty and it wasn't and other personal -- out and get them out and Childress. Are you too old to watch games going forward as a fan or you like a lot of the players who say once rather -- there's -- football doesn't even exist until we we starter for sneaking. Well I think you watch at least I do as a coach you watch for strategic decisions and things like that. To me that's what that's what's important for me going forward -- can always sit there watch the tape and and in and get the football part of it the next day basically. And you know. But but to watch you know to me and -- doing other things but the pay attention to the games there's a lot this strategic decision the coaches to make all the time. And then you're able to replace those in your mind in that situation we know how would you call it how would you do it and that kind of a lot of things like -- the end of the first half you know. -- coaches we always second guess ourselves where he played in the book in our mind in and you see things like that come up and it got. Those -- the things they think it got at least. I watched the games for. How often you threw shoes at the TV like. Oh we were playing against the Hokies beat excitement that's been many emotions -- other people we have. You know we have many coaching friends humbled to have -- anytime there's little games up their play and stroke. You're trying not to get too -- try to build. Marvin Lewis Bengals coach Bonnie Bernstein Dan Patrick show when he. The Texans lost to Baltimore back in October -- match -- still their quarterback after seeing TJ Yates Lions. Think he'll step that stack up against the Ravens defense. Well I think they'll be very deliberate what they do I think he's done a great job of decision making and that's going to be important. And god he's not one to sit there all the football than -- did not going to be able to sit there and hold the football districts. On a switch gears for a moment with Marvin Lewis Cincinnati Bengals coach on The Dan Patrick Show. Back -- 2009 mark your defense of coordinator Mike Zimmer -- -- his wife. During the season. Did -- difficult obviously for any team in the Packers prepare for the Giants are going to a similar situation their offensive coordinator Joseph Philbin. His son passed away did funeral is on Friday can you reflect back on that experience and you as head coach how you had to bring the team together and help regroup. Well you really have to. Everybody's gonna deal with that kind of tragedy and loss differently. And you have to understand and I think. For a group that got to give the field but I am trying. Kind of process that the people that were close to joke about him and tell me have to -- We all coaches have these children and and we want so much for them and ten. We don't necessarily get to spend much time with them all the time grown up but we'd like control I think we all take a -- look at that and so that's going to be. -- coaching staff a little bit so I think everybody just got to deal with that and then kind of the -- and they. Just coming together with each other and it helps you move through any kind of tragedy like that you're they're gonna get closer together. And that's shown what they're going to be it would continue as a football team and obviously. The coaching staff and so we'll. -- always -- to talk to Marvin glad to see you back in Cincinnati thanks so much of the time. -- -- thank you Cincinnati Bengals coach Marvin Lewis. Should.
