Yes. For a year I think. We got him from the Ravens, as a KR/PR/WR and he didnt have the same results with a bunch of noobs.

He didn't have it with a bunch of old farts either when he got picked up by Jacksonville either. I think it was Jacksonville or one of those Florida teams.

I never had much against Lewis though he took a lot of heat for not producing like he did in Baltimore. How was he supposed to do that with the guys we had blocking for him in 2002? Nobody ever thought for a second that he was going to become an asset in the passing game but the Texans gave him a look anyway. We didn't have much else and I always thought they told him he'd get a fair shot at playing WR just to cushion the blow of coming to an expansion team.

He never seemed to like it here. He never really looked comfortable. I got the impression he had good communication with his blockers in Baltimore and he never established that here. He never would have either with the turnover we had in the first couple of years.

let me spell it out for you Hulk75. In real simple terms, using small words, so you can understand the meaning.

You take a 'cheap shot' at a proven Vet like Lewis who has at least done something in his career, albeit with the Ravens. The reason he didn't do that well here was explained by Hervoyel pretty well. Same reason that David Carr ate dirt 70+ times in the first season, the blocking stank.

Yet everytime someone mentions David Carr, who hasn't done diddly in his career, or more specifically his faults, you defend him like he is the next coming of Joe Montana, or Dan Marino. Well, he ain't. Or if he is, it will be in the far future, IMHO. So unless you got a crystal ball that can tell that, you are only speculating, like the rest of us.

I find that interesting, and enlightening, personally. Your choice of what constitutes a REAL NFL player and whether they actually 'played' the game is slanted so badly as to be laughable. Not to mention, up till this point in David Carr's career, IRONIC.

The reason Jermaine didn't last was he dropped a couple kicks. Can't do that on Caper's squad.

I used to like listening to his show on the radio.
