Is anyone else worried about Lewis' shoulder???

Postby Paladyr » Mon Nov 10, 2003 8:20 am

Last night it looked like they were avoiding handing him the ball on quite a few occasions. Even the announcers were saying "why aren't they handing jamal the ball". I think his shoulder is getting a lot worse, and I might start thinking about trading him.

I'm a little concerned but he still carried the ball 27 times which is quite a bit. I was pissed when he bulldozed his way to the one and then they threw the ball and took an easy touchdown away from him. Even though they scored I think that's an awful play call in that situation. The fumbles have me a little concerned as well, but I don't think it had too much to do with his shoulder rather than just being a little tired maybe. Overall, I don't think it's the shoulder, I think it's just bad coaching.

I didn't notice him favoring the shoulder. Looked fine to me.

those fumbles usually result from trying to gain too much extra yardage, a la ahman green. i think he's fine. rams D is just tough like that

St. Louis is great at forcing fumbles. They've recovered 17 so far, 7 more than any other team. Only 6 other teams have more than 7.

Lewis is fine its just that they take him out on 3rd and long i dunno why.That play did ticked me off at the GL with not giving the ball to Lewis.THats just bad coaching ask Marty Shithemir about it.I have Lewis on my team and im a little worried about the QB situation thats all.

I really don't think he will get hurt too bad. He should play every game and Taylor will get some carries just to keep him healthy. I may pick up Chester just in case, but I am not counting on a Jamal Lewis unjury.

I was worried a couple weeks ago when the word first came out about his shoulder, but since then he's had 3 out of 4-100 yard games and looked like he's had a darned good time of it, too. I think his fumbilitis is because he is always fighting for extra yardage. I think that's true of most great RBs at times.
