Marvin Lewis named AP Coach of the Year

The awards keep coming, and in keeping with tradition, they're all for people on teams other than the Chargers.  The latest snub should come as no surprise: Marvin Lewis of the Cincinnati Bengals was named the AP Coach of the Year, over Sean Payton and Norv Turner.

Lewis is the second Bengals coach in history to receive the award.  Paul Brown, who founded the team, won the award the first year of the Bengals existence in 1970.

Lewis garnered 20.5 votes cast by a panel of 50 sportswriters and broadcasters.  Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints received 11.5 votes, which means one of the voters couldn't decide between Lewis and Payton, so he voted for both.

Norv Turner finished third with 9 votes, and Jim Caldwell of the Indianapolis Colts finished fourth with 7 votes.

Andy Reid of the Eagles and Ken Whisenhunt of the Cardinals each received one vote.

Noticeably absent from the list and receiving zero votes are Jets coach Rex Ryan, Cowboys coach Wade Philips,  Ravens Coach John Harbaugh and Vikings coach Brad Childress.

So, if there's anything good to take out of this, at least Norv got some attention and recognition.  Those nine votes account for something, right?  Right?  Guys?
