Third String But Playing on Special Teams
Dion Lewis was really only great for 7 games of the 2015 season. As amazing as he looked then, I am shocked that anyone would even consider placing him over James White. White is also an outstanding player in addition to his longevity.
It's a shame that Lewis's career was compromised by injuries and being constantly overlooked. If he'd stayed healthy, he might have been one of the best running backs of the 2010s.
I could watch that play over and over again. It seriously puts a big ol' grin on my face. If you wanted to show someone who knows nothing about football what a running back is, the two modern plays you'd show him are Lynch's famous run against the Saints for a big bully kinda back, and Dion's masterful footwork against those C'Boys.
I'm sure there's a billion other plays that would be better, but I'm tryna make a point here. Loved that play.
