So, when did he go from All-Pro to "suck?" I guess if a player gets hurt, they suck? Who is our return man? Or is it chic now to jump on the Lance Moore bandwagon for his one return in preseason?

That is what has gone down thus far and the remainder of the cuts werent made yet. Some more will be made today and some will be made tomorrow, from what i am told, they are talking to other teams about some players and they are waiting to see who pops up on the waiver wire. But you can write down what i told you about the cuts and the potential practice squad.
So, has there been any talk of us trading for any players?

He was all pro what, 3 years ago? Let it go. He sucked before he got hurt. Skittering out of bounds all the damn time. I wanted to kick my TV every time he did that, which turned into every return. But damn, how long can you hold on to ONE all pro season? Move on. I'd rather Bethel return than Lewis all day every day. And don't even get into him as a receiver. It was a cute story at first, time to turn the page.

How old is he again... ok let's keep him around. Don't kid yourself, he's not Brian Mitchell.



The guy has exactly ZERO moves... have you been watching the same games we've been watching the past couple of years?

Charles Rogers-WR- Lions Sep. 1 - 11:49 am et

Charles Rogers is now expected to be cut by the Lions.

"Hey, you know Coach always talks about pounding the rock," the former No. 2 pick said. "I was the rock that got pounded." Rogers and Mike Williams, who is likely safe, barely played in Thursday's exhibition.

He never really had a lot of moves, but tremendous speed. A lot of the "out of bounds" was due to the previous regime wanting to angle ALL returns to the sidelines for some reason rather than the open field. Regardless of how old he is, holding onto him for 6 weeks without counting against our roster would allow us to evaluate him to see if the speed is still there. Seeing as how we have no return man on the roster, it would seem to be a low risk proposition.

Lewis' downfall occured after his first major knee injury. After that he was never the same. It seems that over the last couple of years he's spent most of his time looking to get to the sidelines, especially on punt returns.

To be an awesome returner you have to be fearless. Lewis has lost that fire in the last couple of years.
