Is Lewis here to stay?

Marvin Lewis left us with more questions than answers following today's news conference at Paul Brown Stadium. 

Will he be back in 2018? Did he ask Mike Brown for more control over the roster? 

Here's one thing I'm certain of: I should've trusted my instincts when it came to Lewis' potential return. Back in November I discussed Lewis' future and outlined a path for his return next season. You can listen to that below. 

I continued to hear that Lewis' return was unlikely. Then, Adam Schefter reported that he was going to explore other options. 

I drank the Kool-Aid instead of trusting my instincts. You can listen to today's news conference and Chick Ludwig and I reacting to it below.
