Lewis: Looking for offense

INDIANAPOLIS - Marvin Lewis doesn't see a likely scenario where the Bengals will be without both wide receivers Chad Ocho Cinco and T.J. Houshmandzadeh this season.

Lewis made the remarks Friday at the NFL scouting combine, where he also said the club is going to focus on offense in the free-agency period that begins Feb. 27.

After addressing the local media, Lewis spoke to the national pool at Lucas Oil Stadium and said that quarterback Carson Palmer "is wearing me out every day" on the phone.

"Because he wants to win very badly," he said. "We've got to get more people around him. For awhile we knew how to win. We forgot that a little bit. We've got to get that edge back."
