From another thread: Dion Lewis Could Be the Patriots’ Offensive X Factor
Now we see where he practices his hesitation moves, and explosion through the hole.
Healthy Dion Lewis Not Surprised By Success As He Enjoys Career Year For Patriots
Where's the "cute" button when needed
Just saw this tidbit on twitter. He really is playing like one of the best RBs to ever wear a Patriot uniform.
I think Lewis is in the top 3 in the league. Oh hell, honestly I think he’s the best and most entertaining runner I’ve seen since sanders
The thing that sets him apart is the fact that I know he’s gonna do something crazy
It's not Gronk...Its this cat goin to destroy the Jaguars.
For me what sets him apart is the weird glide factor, where he looks like he’s got a 1 or two yard gain, ho hum, nothing to see here, then without even a dramatic move he’s five or seven yards downfield. It’s like Michael Jackson moonwalking... you know there’s all this athleticism and strength in it, but all you see is the optical illusion of him walking forwards and moving backwards. With the cat, you see him being patient, then the defense being on him at the line... then 5 yards later they actually get him.
PS: Inevitable comparisons based on patience, if your memory goes back a few years...
- This might be what ol' boy thought he had in Maroney in the infamous "bust" draft (which also netted us the incomparable Chad Jackson.) Maroney danced behind the line. He too was a patient runner. He was so patient that he let the defense come to him. Then he let the defense tackle him. For a loss. Patience is a virtue, to a point. Maroney was way beyond that point. He had no idea that there was a natural flow in the play, and the role of patience is to wait for that flow to create the specific weakness you can exploit, then pounce on that moment.
- This is reminiscent of a fella ya might have heard of name of Priest Holmes. This is homer talk for sure, but Holmes too demonstrated this level of masterful patience. By comparison, Lewis has had a handful of successful games, and the Pats' offense is not set up to provide him opportunities at the pace Holmes enjoyed. But I see that stylistic similarity.
I await disproof at the hands of smart football brains.... those are just a couple of random thoughts.
The Jaguars do not have an answer for the Cat!!!
Speaking of cats, does Tyreek Hill still have "cheetah speed" on the golf course?
That should be explored.
I want the Patriots to defeat these imposter cats! Join me in my new ritual!
I hope they don't, because they will now certainly have an answer for Brady,
and obviously for Cooked too.
This may a case of “Cat on Cat” crime.
The Cat has been everywhere. But he has thrived here. Lots of Meow Mix and Purina (wins and rings) here!
Keep coach'n em up Sammy!
