Marvin Lewis calls Johnny Manziel a midget, later apologizes


Cincinnati Bengals head coach was apparently in a clowning mood on Monday when he was asked about this week’s opponent, the Cleveland Browns and their little issue at quarterback you may have heard about.

Lewis, in a dismissive tone, told WLW-AM, via’s Chris Wesseling:

“You’ve got to go defend the offense, you don’t defend the player.”

After short pause… “Particularly a midget.”


By nightfall, Lewis was apologizing for his not-so-PC remark:

“I apologize to Johnny, the Browns and all the fans in Cleveland… It was just a poor remark. I really didn’t mean anything by it.”
