Schwartz & Henderson combo solid for ‘D’

Posted by Chris Brown on February 21, 2014 – 12:41 pm

Cincinnati Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was the defensive coordinator in Baltimore and had Bills defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz as a defensive assistant and Bills secondary coach Donnie Henderson as his secondary coach as well. He believes the combination of the two on Buffalo’s defense will do a lot to raise their overall performance to an even greater level than where it was in 2013.

“Schwartzy is a tremendous mind with ideas and energy and obviously I think the world of him,” said Lewis. “He’s done a great job as a coordinator and a head coach and now he’s taking a step back to be a coordinator again.

“Donnie is a guy who I owe a lot to. He’s a tremendous secondary coach who does a great job with the players. He’ll be a great extension and great resource for Jimmy on how to attack and how to defend. And that’s what you want. When you’re in that coordinator’s chair you want a guy that can come in and help you with the plan and if you ask him a question he’s going to give you a creditable answer that you can rely on.”

Henderson has also been a defensive coordinator in the NFL, as well as Bills LBs coach Fred Pagac.

Marvin Lewis planning to win

Posted by Chris Brown on September 27, 2011 – 8:26 am

Every NFL coach expects to win every week and Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis apparently is pretty confident his team is going to even their record at 2-2 when they host the Bills on Sunday.

“We just have to continue to work at the things we’re not doing as well,” said Lewis of his young team. “There’s really not a big change. We’re early in the year. We’ve got a lot of season ahead of us. And you know, at the end of this week when we’re 2-2, there’s going to be probably the other third of the league that’s going to be in the same situation. So I think we have to understand that.”

Lewis made these comments pretty early in the week, and while a coach has to lead confidently I don’t know if you want to make those feelings public for a Bills team that is rolling. Buffalo’s players will have plenty of time to read and digest Lewis’ belief that his team is going to post a victory and prepare accordingly.
