Rough Night For Lewis, Grimm, AsanteAugust 11th, 2012
Joe’s feeling real rosy coming out of the first dance of the New Schiano Order last night in Miami, but there was plenty of ugliness to go around, as well.
On defense, Joe was definitely down on Myron Lewis’ performance. He got beat multiple times, and didn’t look strong or to be playing fast. Dolphins receiver Roberto Wallace muscled him to the ground with the ball in his hands and scampered for a long gain. Lewis was impressive in practice over the past week, but in Joe’s mind, last night Lewis lost the ground he had gained.
Grimm was a surprise starter at safety alongside Ronde Barber, and he, too, had a tackle broken on him and didn’t flash any of his trademark physical play with the first team. At least Grimm was much better positionally than Lewis, and Larry Asante. Without the benefit of coach’s film, Joe’s quite certain Asante’s angles on the football were rather Sabbyesque.
