We might be able to fake it at LB, but nobody can fake it at CB.
You said it.
Furthermore, since Deshea's departure, the rules have handcuffed CBs. It's almost impossible to play CB anymore... and Lewis was second in the entire league in passes defensed (which, again, is all the more impressive considering the rules).
