Myron Lewis Out; Was Exceling On Special Teams

August 16th, 2011

Boy is Joe enjoying the all-Bucs four hours on Sirius NFL Radio this evening.

Among the nuggets from rockstar general manager Mark Dominik was how happy he was with Myron Lewis on special teams in practice, calling him a “standout flier” fight through on coverage teams. But Dominik seemed genuinely down when he announced that Lewis would miss Thursday’s game against New England with his bad hamstring.

Joe too would like to see the elusive Lewis, who didn’t play in Kansas City and missed his share of time during his rookie campaign. He’s gotta get on the field.

Again, Joe will have more later from this glorious day on NFL Radio.

    I want to see this kid Excel in coverage not on special teams.

    Exactly hunter. This was an answer that protected against what could have been said, i.e. We are NOT excited by his ability to play corner in the defense(while still injecting something positive).

    Good spin Dom.

    his lack of conditioning and overall ability to get healthy is taking away opportunities to catch up… sad i think he has alot of potential.

    maybe that’s why yo-booty’s here…

    hint….do these games count? coaches/GM know what they have in a healthy Lewis
    let a prospect get some GT…

    I’m so jealous of you today. Can’t wait to hear more from your glorious day though!

    I think “if” something happens to Talib next year, Lewis is the guy that we need step it up and it starts by getting on the field this year. The potential is definitely there.

    I’m super high on Lewis, watching him play last year gives me high expectations of him.

    But being injured two years running? It didn’t work out for Huggins, sure hope Myron can produce at some point this year.

    I am now on the fence about Lewis. He looks the part, but can he play the part? Morris said “we only go to FA when we miss in the draft”. If I were Lewis I would tape that statement to my bathroom mirror and read it every day before going to practice. Lewis should do everything he can to get on the field and once there stay there.

  9. Four Fingered Fisherman Says:


    I’m high on lewis as well. The comparison to Huggins has many similarities, but they are not the exact same though. Huggins’ injuries were/are far more devastating than the injuries Myron has incurred. And Huggins was an undrafted free agent as compared to a 3rd round pick. Let’s just hope the guy gets on the field and stays there.

    THOMAS – being mr positive and putting words in people’s mouths again.
    Let me ask you this:
    Why do you try to read between the lines so much with Raheem and Mark D.?
    You do that with people who have not been truthful and spin things…. I have yet to see where they have been anything but forthcoming.

    I am not saying you are wrong, he very well could think his ability at CB is lacking in progress… and it probably is with the lack of playing time in 1.3 years, but for once… just one…. could you ever be a little positive?
