Myron Lewis Doing His Best To Get Cut

September 23rd, 2012

It appears the time has come for Bucs cornerback Myron Lewis to begin a search for a real estate agent.

The third-year Bucs cornerback has largely been invisible in his NFL career, largely because he is oft-injured. When there is a Lewis sighting, it is often cringe-worthy. He is far more apt to get torched like a welding arc than he is to make a productive play.

Then there was his little stunt today. Late in the game when the Bucs defense was putting forth a heroic effort to keep the Bucs in the game, down by a touchdown, the Bucs force a punt.

On the punt return, Lewis tried to play tough guy and was flagged for unnecessary roughness. In other words, Lewis was a fool.

It was a grossly immature, head-up-your-caboose penality, as if there is a neccesary penalty.

When Lewis came to the bench, FOX TV cameras caught Bucs coach Greg Schiano having choice words with Lewis. It didn’t take much imagination to figure out what one of Schiano’s words were.

Simply put, Joe can’t see how Lewis is still on the roster when Schiano has gotten rid of players who at least are somewhat productive when they take the field. Preston Parker springs to mind; at least he was a threat on offense. Lewis is a threat all right: a threat to the Bucs’ progress.

What does it say that an undrafted free agent (Leonard Johnson) and a guy off the street (Brandon MacDonald) are as high or higher on the depth chart than Lewis?

Joe is trying to recall any play Lewis has made in his three NFL seasons that benefited the Bucs. Despite being of sober mind, Joe’s mind is failing.

    While Lewis was stupid there, all he did on that play was deflect the last of about three hits by the Dallas player. I kept waiting for the flag because the ref was watching the two of them from the get go, and the Cowpuke was laughing on the sideline knowing he got away with a big one.

    Lewis should have just taken it. But the flag should have been on Dallas.

    I vote he takes Mike Sullivan with him.

    Our offense has great players.

    A QB makes all the difference in the world as we’ve clearly seen the past few weeks.

    I love how Schiano jumped him after it. I could very easily read his lips. He told him “I don’t give a F— if he grabs your balls”. Then you could see GMC walk over to him and point to his head,telling him to be smart. Last year he may have gotten a chest bump.

    Lewis will never play another game for the Bucs. i will be absolutely shocked if he isn’t cut this week, probably tomorrow.

    I find it difficult to disagree with you, HB. After that bone-headed display of lack of discipline, he can walk in front of a moving bus for all I care. #23 doesn’t deserve to be on this roster. Let me be the first (today) to say it.

    If he does stay on this team, he must have some naughty pictures of Mark Dominik.

    I just don’t get how this guy still has a job other than working at a subway or a 711! 7 11 being more fit being as every one he covers is open all day every day! He makes my skin crawl! Still wish we would of traded for mike jenkins after watching him shut down v jax all day. Although any corner would of looked like deion sanders today with Freeman throwing the ball…..and thats another subject on its own!
