The 34-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, which dropped the Bengals to a record of 5-9, seems to have changed the tune of the seemingly frustrated head coach.
Lewis has not decided to leave the struggling Bengals, telling reporters that this morning's report is not true.
"It's the same comment we've had since August. We have no comment about the future, we'll deal with the future when the future arrives," Lewis said, according to Lance McAlister of 700 WLW.
The Bengals gave up 17 points in the first quarter and didn't score what would be their only touchdown until the fourth. Lewis told Paul Dehner Jr. of The Cincinnati Enquirer that he doesn't think his reported comments affected the players.
