The Myron Lewis Era Is Over

August 8th, 2013

He was hurt, horrible and blessed with three years of NFL paychecks. But Myron Lewis will no longer torture Bucs fans.

Nine Lives Myron was waived this afternoon. Finally! Joe was starting to wonder what sort of lurid photos of Bucs hierarchy Lewis had in his possession.

Lewis managed to survive three seasons. Amazing, considering he did nothing but play well in the SEC, which made him a Bucs’ third-round pick in the 2010 draft, the deepest draft of the modern era.

Gerald McCoy is a Pro Bowler and a franchise cornerstone from Lewis’ draft class, but now Lewis joins second-round picks Brian Price and Arrelious Benn, and sixth-rounder Brent Bowden, as former Bucs from that draft. Mike Williams (fourth round), Cody Grimm, Dekoda Watson and Erik Lorig (seventh-rounders) also remain.

    Sorry Myron. I’m sure your a great person but you just werent cut out to be a pro football player. At least not in Tampa anyways. Good luck with whatever you do in the future.

    Bout damn time. Sorry bro

    I feel like I just got paroled.

    Raheem will be waiting with open arms for Myron.

  5. Sneedy16 Says:

    Man, this is funny due to the fact that he sucked so bad and they didn’t cut him.

  6. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I will not cheer for a man losing his job (unless he did something stupid for it to happen), but this one sure is testing me.

  9. Macabee Says:

    You kidding me! Must have lost those pictures he had of Dominik!

    Seriously, I wish Myron well in his next endeavor. I would strongly recommend something outside of football.

  10. the_buc_realist Says:

    I will only cheer if the man responsible loses his job, and that is the pop-star. I am surprised that the pop-star did not trade him for a used napkin so the sheep can sing the pop-star praises.

    Hallelujah! Hallelujah!


    See ya, fool!

  12. Tampamac Says:

    Worst Bucs CB since Alan Zemaitis…

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    Every time the_buc_realist types something I’m reminded of this guy from my childhood. Anyone else?

  14. bucrightoff Says:

    Mike Williams saves that draft class from being a total catastrophe.

  15. stevek Says:

    Myron’s pick could have been Jimmy Graham.

    How good would this offense be with TE Jimmy Graham, and not 9 live Myron?

    On a more serious hypothetical note, why was George Selvie waived before Myron?

  16. 76buc76 Says:

    Nooooooooo I really thought he had a chance to beat out Revis for the #1 corner spot.

  17. Gus Numbers Says:

    Lol watch him get resigned

  18. Sneedy16 Says:


    What about, GMC, Cody Grimm, Eric Lorig, and Dakota Watson?

    Lol, his comments tend to just repeat.

  19. PRBucFan Says:

    *sigh of relief

    Wish you the best elsewhere, thanks for trying

  20. bucrightoff Says:

    I don’t count GMC because that wasn’t really a pick per se. We were just taking whoever Detroit didn’t, so if they picked McCoy we’d have Suh, so no credit on that pick. Grimm, meh, one season and a DUI is ok for a 7th rounder. Lorig is fine too, Watson meh, special teamer so far. Maybe he’ll step up this year, maybe not.

    What I do know is trading your two second round picks and cutting your 3rd rounder 3 years later is a terrible draft class. Without Mike Williams it’d be a guy we were supposed to pick and a bunch of meh.

  21. Couch Fan Says:

    Really sucks to get cut on game day. I almost feel bad for the guy.

  22. PRBucFan Says:

    By your logic every pick should be thought of the same way except the first pick of the draft because every pick is a result of what the other teams before the team picking did not in fact pick..

    lol Tongue twister.

  23. JB Says:

    It’s about freaking Time!

  24. Couch Fan Says:

    GMC doesn’t count towards the draft class because “we were suppose to pick him”?

    I agree that the draft class overall wasnt very good but you can’t pick and choose who can and can’t be counted in the draft class Lol

  25. snook Says:

    He’ll be a Redskin by tomorrow afternoon. Love it.

  26. SammyBoy Says:

    He did do something stupid Hawaiian…he decided to play professional football

  27. tmaxcon Says:

    I wish the young man well! Thankfully they put him out of his misery.

  28. tmaxcon Says:

    damn some harsh words people. remember he has feelings LOL

  29. the_buc_realist Says:

    We can not begrudge Myron because our boy-genius GM over valued him.

  30. Buc'n Junkie Says:

    I wonder if Duemig remark on the radio yesterday brought on Myron’s release?

  31. Couch Fan Says:

    Actually now that look at that draft class. 5 players are still on the roster right now, 4 of which will most likely be starting. I dont think Grimm makes this team but you never know.

    That actually isnt to bad.

  32. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    Could this day get any better?

  33. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    We won’t have MyLew to pick on anymore…..who’s next?…..perhaps Goode, Tandy???….maybe noone will rise to the Myron status (multi-year wonder)….
    I wish him well. Vanderbilt is a very good school so I am sure he has some smarts…..Good Luck Myron.

  34. Ryan Says:

    Like Milton in office space, I’m betting he’s been cut for a while but noone told him.

    On the bright side he’s probably been a confidence booster for young receivers in camp.

  35. the_buc_realist Says:

    lol, Eric Wright just signed with the 49ers, Looks like the pop-star was outsmarted again. I wish the Bucs had a real NFL GM.

  36. Buc1987 Says:

    WestCoastBucsFan : Could this day get any better?

    Yes it can for me. I just now put on my Dougernaught jersey. Threw the beads around my neck along with my tickets. Laced up my shoes and I’m headed out the door in 1 hour. My first season tix EVER. I’ve wanted to have them for soooo long. Either could not afford it or could never get in.

    Thanks Rock Star GM for building such a great team for me.

  37. Buc1987 Says:

    I see realist popped his head out of the trash can again.

  38. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    Lol at the guy desperate to bash Dom for the most meaningless of things. Bashing him when players without injury history get hurt. Giving all the credit to the HC who said he didn’t have a hand in the 2012 draft. It’s hilarious. I’m sure when we make the playoffs this year it will be in spite of the GM.

  39. the_buc_realist Says:

    Yes, it will be in spite of the Gm, D-line and QB. Haven’t you been listing???

  40. Tampamac Says:


    Like who, Jerry Jones? Dude, he was a 3rd round pick. Disappointing they missed on him, yes. Not as if they had a ton of money invested in him. I’d much rather miss on a 3rd rounder than a first(see Raiders,Oakland). Just for the record, how did you feel about Bruce Allen? His last draft in 2008–

    1 20 (20) Aqib Talib CB Kansas
    2 27 (58) Dexter Jackson WR Appalachian State
    3 20 (83) Jeremy Zuttah G Rutgers
    4 16 (115) Dre Moore DT Maryland
    5 25 (160) Josh Johnson QB San Diego
    6 9 (175) Eugene (Geno) Hayes OLB Florida State
    7 31 (238) Cory Boyd RB South Carolina

    A grand total of 1 player still on the team.

  41. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    Your excuses for anything Dom has ever done right are MUCH more entertaining than the “excuses” the Freeman supporters provide. Lol. Please, keep it up.

  42. the_buc_realist Says:

    @tampamac this one is worst

    1. JFro-6pak
    2 traded for win-slow
    3 Roy Miller
    4 Klye Moore
    5 Xavier Fulton
    6 traded to move up in 1st round
    7 Ej Biggers
    7 traded to move up in the 4th.
    7 Sammie Stroughter

    also gave away a 5th pick in 2010 for win-slow.

  43. john Says:

    is there anyone who thinks that was a good draft class?

  44. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    Please do some research on some of the best teams in the league. Finding more than two players still on the roster four years later is quite rare.

  45. Couch Fan Says:

    5 picks out of 7 is still on the team, 4 of the 5 are starting. It may not be a good draft class but it dam sure isnt bad either. Sheesh, wtf do some of you people expect? 7 pro bowlers every year?

  46. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    And Winslow was worth every dime and draft pick. Very productive for three straight seasons on an absolutely horrendous team.

  47. Couch Fan Says:

    5 of 8*

  48. Drew Says:

    There’s always a place in all of our hearts for a player like Myron “the 9 lives cat” Lewis. Not a chance!!!

  49. Solaire of Astora Says:

    Anyone else thinks Winslow Miller and Biggers were good picks. Biggers far outperformed is draft status. Miller and Winslow were both solid contributors. And I don’t want to get into the Freeman pick even though I like it.

  50. Solaire of Astora Says:

    People forget that before the monsters of Gronk and Jimmy Graham put up 1000 yards a season Winslow was a top teir tight end

  51. Couch Fan Says:

    2009 was bad
    2010 was decent
    2011 was above average
    2012 looks to be a real good one
    2013 to soon to tell yet

    There is a pattern there. 1 bad draft out of 5 and he is gettin better every year. Of all the things you can complain about, the draft and the salary cap are 2 things you should have confidence in with Dom.

    For a Buccaneers fan, you sure do take the time to spew garbage about anything that could potentially be viewed negative on this team.

  52. Couch Fan Says:


    Winslow to me was a very good use of a 2nd round pick. I think he went above and beyond what we gave him. Biggers, meh, not really.

  53. bucdomination Says:

    he was here for so long, if cornerbacks start dropping like flies is dominick crazy enough to bring him back in for depth because theres no way any other team will pick him up

  54. SteveK Says:

    Solaire of Astora,

    Gronk or Graham > Brian Price, Reejus Benn or Myron Lewis.

    The 2010 draft was the “deepest” in history? Dom drafted for “need” and it burned his ass, never again. Never again.

  55. bucdomination Says:

    i like the talent that has started coming in since schiano got here. i would like to see none starters from the raheem era gone in favor of new blood like gaitor. still think grimm is better that ahmad black

  56. Buc'n Junkie Says:

    ^^^^ pretty easy to draft after the fact there Steve Boy …don’t ya think?

  57. Buc'n Junkie Says:


    I think it was Joe talking to The Big Dog yesterday about how they gave Dominik his nickname Rockstar. He got after the 2010 season. He was a hot commodity and had a lot of teams that wanted to hire him away from the Bucs. Now, it strikes me odd that half the teams wanted to hire him but you keep dragging him through the mud.

    That alone confirms to me that you are just a hateful and spiteful man.

  58. Couch Fan Says:

    You guys are talking about TEs for Tom Brady and Drew Brees.

    If we drafted one of those two, there is no guarantee either become successful here.

    The QBs they play for have a huge hand in there success.

  59. Couch Fan Says:


    Your talking about 2 TEs who both are playing with elite QBs. Not trying to take anything away from them but if we drafted 1 of them there is no guarantee they do anything note worthy here.

  60. SteveBucsFan Says:

    I don’t include Brian Price as a bust in that draft class. He was a beast when healthy and had some incredible freak issues happen. Not Dom’s fault. Imagine him getting to line up with GMC! Never got to be.

    Dom has gotten better every year. Isn’t everyone supposed to get better the longer they are in a job? Drafting and free angency has been his weak points but he shown huge improvement in those categories (possibly Schiano’s doing). But he has always excelled in other spots. He is great at pulling in UDFAs and scrap heap warriors. Also, he can write really team friendly contracts.

  61. Deminion Says:

    Took three yrs adios

  62. SteveK Says:


    Nope, he reached on those picks, and there was greater talent available.

    Since Schiano came to town, drafting is done right.

  63. the_buc_realist Says:

    I agree, The change is evident in the draft style. Also Coach likes his coffee black pop-star.

  64. Buc'n Junkie Says:

    Hey, is the game on the radio?

  65. WestCoastBucsFan Says:

    Anyone saying Brian Price was a reach is as high as a kite. A player can only be determined a “reach” immediately following the pick. Not three years later. Brian Price was a projected first round pick on many mock drafts. Joe even wrote an article about someone projecting Brian Price with the third overall pick if McCoy and Suh were both gone.

    Even then, Price had his career derailed by an injury that most sports doctors had never even seen before. To fault ANYBODY for not predicting that type of injury is just asinine. It ended the man’s career.

  66. Buc'n Junkie Says:

    I gave my tickets to my kids. I’m glad, cause it is raining hard over here in Pinellas. Poor Buc1987 is gonna get soaked if it is raining like this at the stadium.

  67. chris Says:

    In one of the deepest drafts in 2010, Mark Dominik really did flop in rounds 2 and 3. The Bengals hit big time in that draft.

    I’ll never forget this: I was screaming for Carlos Dunlap in round 2 and with the next pick in round 2, was all for Golden Tate to work the inside slot. Round 3 I thought we should have drafted a CB, althogh I had a high grade on Altraun Verner from UCLA. He’s done very well.

  68. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Alright, the world is beginning to right itself again. 2+2 DOES equal 4.

    Not sure what took so long, but, anyway.

  69. john Says:

    let us not forget that this was the deepest draft in 20 years. if you are satisfied with that draft…….

  70. Jbeachbuc Says:

    Ha! Like anybody in here could do a better job as GM…
    So idiotic.
