    teams aren't allowed to talk to free agents until free agency begins..

    we've got alot of talent at RB, i really doubt we go after him or any other big named RB this offseason

    I think I agree with Art:

    "Lewis is a younger, equally spent Eddie George" :)

    No I have not heard the rumor.

    I don't believe it. We don't have a need at running back.

    We don't want Lewis in Dallas.

    After he broke his ankle and spent the summer in the slammer his numbers have gone way down.

    Eddie George II.

    Pass.

    I don't believe it for a second, but...

    I might have to bend my rule against rooting for thugs if this happened. ;) IMO Lewis is the absolute prototypical Parcells back, and I'd bet money that at some point Parcells has wondered "what if" when seeing Lewis play.

    Actually, I've feared the Eagles getting him. He's an absolute stud when he's healthy.

    Then again Art would say that about Ladanian Tomlinson if we traded for him.

    Why do folks continually buy rumors about us going after bad character players. Didn't last year's draft convince you? We passed on Merriman, passed on Odell Thurman and picked guys at the same positions over them.

    I never said I bought this rumor, merely was asking if anyone else had heard it.

    This Parcells prototype RB gets overplayed way too much IMO.

    Joe Morris was what? 5-7?
    Curtis Martin 5-11/210
    Julius 5-8/210
    Meggett?
    Lewis Tillman?

    Otis Anderson was there for a cup of coffee and that's it.

    Of all those guys, only Martin (or a much younger OJ Anderson, who was a great back with the Cardinals) is what Parcells would want as his true lead back, IMO.

    Forget the height and weight numbers; Lewis is big, strong, fast, for the most part durable, and plays p****d off. The guy ran for 2000 yards on a team with zero passing threat. That's why I think Parcells would love him.

    With a back like Lewis, Parcells really could play 60% run-40% pass ball like I think he'd like to. Bledsoe would be much more effective because we'd have a true running game. I love Julius, but he hasn't proven he can stay on the field long enough to truly count on.

    Now all that said, I see about a 2% chance that we'd actually get him.

    Considering he says his #1 attribute for a RB is elusiveness.....

    Doesn't make sense.

    I heard this on a sports talk radio and people at my job was talking about it... But the radio said that it's likely he'll end up in Dallas....

    You see Dallas are in search of a powerback... but I won't believe until I see it...

    I'm sorry but I'm not buying this outlandish rumor. We have TWO potential young studs on the roster and running back is simply not a need. And even if we were going after a bonafide #1 running back, I would sign the edge, Shaun Alexander or Ahman Green before I spent money on Lewis.

    This franchise has cleansed itself from the convicts of years past and the last thing we need is another felony offender on this team.:mad:
