Myron Lewis Struggling To Shine

September 3rd, 2010

After Arrelious Benn’s big game tonight in Houston, most of the Bucs’ draft picks have now shined at one time or another.

The exception might be cornerback Myron Lewis. In Joe’s eyes, it seems Lewis hasn’t adjusted well to the speed of the game. Lewis was beaten badly for a touchdown tonight by Bobby Williams, a 25-year-old rookie who played at North Alabama.

That surely doesn’t mean Lewis is a bust. It is what it is. Ronde Barber rode the bench in his first season.

The Bucs’ defensive mastermind/head coach said after the game that he’s optimistic about Lewis.

“Lewis is starting to come on now. He made a couple of plays today. Gave a big play today, as well. But he’s starting to come on,” Raheem Morris said.

Looks to Joe like a very active Elbert Mack tonight will be the nickel corner on opening day, with E.J. Biggers filling in for the suspended Aqib Talib.

    They talked about Lorig being the only drafted player on the bubble, but he made a nice play or two tonight…

    The title along with the photo is too much comedy

  4. Not A Rocket Surgeon Says:

    Myron will need this season and some snaps in relief to get the speed of the game down.

    He’s not playing reactively – too much thinking.

    Good thing is he’s smart, once he’s comfortable in his role (whatever that is going to be) he will be a quality starter alongside Talib. JMHO

    I agree Brain Scientist. Lewis didn’t have a lot of time on field this camp and pre-season due to injuries. No doubt it’s put him behind. But he’s got skills and will catch up in due time.

    Rhonde was awful when he started his career. You’ll remember that his nickname was “Toast” until the 3rd year of his career.
