    Re: I saw Jamal Lewis in the airport!!!

    if we can't get a back like edge, i would love to have lewis. I think that he's still capable of being a 1500+yd back, as long as the line does an adaquate job. i think hte reason he struggled is because he was splitting time with chester taylor. if he could be our full time back, i think he could go over 1000 yds for sure.

    and as for him saying he wants to come here, that would be awesome, but i think he was probably just tryin to please the fans by saying "yea i would like to mabye go there"

    I say nay.

    His price tag is too steep and he is too old. Don't get me wrong. I think he's a great back and we obviously have the cash I just think we can spend it better.

    we don't actually know what his price tag is. if he goes for a decent price i would be all for it, mabye an incentive laiden contract that pays depending on his performance.

    Actually, it's not too far fetched. Some (but not all :grin NFL players are smart enough to shoot little one liners back to a fan to make them happy. When I was in Macomb, IL, the St Louis Rams had training camp there, and some of them would say anything to get a cheer from a fan. Remember, they get a % of all of their merchandise sold, so it is good to give the fans what they want.

    Now, I doubt Jamal Lewis actually wants to come to Minnesota, and even if he did, I doubt we would pursue him, as he doesn't really fit our scheme.

    Re: I saw Jamal Lewis in the airport!!!

    He started to play better towards the end of the season.

    Most of the analyst that I heard comment on him thought he wasn't in game shape last year. Didn't have enough time to get in shape coming out of lock up and all.

    I don't know about "FIT," but I think he can still run and be an everydown back for aqnother 3-4 years.

    I don't have a problem with him at all.

    Sometimes we talk like we are trying to fit a square peg in a round hole. With all this "fit" talk. These guys are all football players with skill I might add. If they can spell T-E-A-M, they can be on the Vikings.

    I am not going to kick J.Lewis off the field for eating crackers between the lines.

    Re: I saw Jamal Lewis in the airport!!!

    As I have stated earlier, I want nothing to do with him (injury prone/downside of career) and he does not really fit the style of offense we will run here because he cannot catch the ball out of the backfield.

    Cool that you ran into him at the airport though.

    All I'm saying is that he isn't a great pass catcher.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
