Bengals fire offensive coordinator Ken Zampese after 0-2 start

This is also the first time Cincinnati has gone two straight games without finding the end zone since 2008, and those Bengals had the excuse of having Ryan Fitzpatrick starting in place of an injured Carson Palmer.

Dalton arrived in Cincinnati much later, as the Bengals drafted the former TCU Horned Frog in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft. The Bengals' offense should have been able to at least get the ball in the endzone at least once this, and beat a rookie quarterback, who became a starter just the week before, at home.

This is the second season in a row a coordinator was sacked following a Thursday-night loss in Week 2. "You are not going to win without them". That's it. It's a superstar-driven league. He looked up at the ceiling momentarily, sighed, and began answering questions about why the offense hadn't scored a touchdown in two games.

As one of the leaders of the offense, I feel we need a spark and need the ball in my hands somewhere, somehow. "That's my mentality. In those situations, I want the ball".

As you might recall, the Bengals blew their lead against the Steelers in the wild-card game that year, nearly bringing an end to the curse. Green was blunt in his assessment of the Bengals' play following the game.

The Bengals' problems obviously run deeper than not throwing to A.J. Green enough-though I imagine that could only help. He commented, "This offense doesn't go without us (wide receivers), we have to be involved more early".

I don't normally like to make references to Mike Florio and Pro Football Talk directly unless it concerns an interview on the show or on topics pertaining to legal matters and things like that, but in this case I have to.

If Cincinnati's skill position players are put in better position to succeed, improvement from Dalton should follow.
