I will not anoint anybody yet. Especially a CB in the NFL. Look at DRC, Namdi and Meangelo Hall and how they have fallen.

I'll say that Keenan Lewis was a solid man to man CB at Oregon St and played opposite Brandon Hughes. Many thought Hughes was the better college CB, but I always thought Lewis had better size and physicality for the NFL. Good to see it coming thru.

Lewis has been very good so far. It actually looks like it's puting more pressure ion Ike as teams are going away from Lewis instead of Ike. I hope that Ike and Taylor keep improving and that Lewis doesn't get the "I'm an ALL PRO attitude". It's nice to have a couple of good CB's and good Nickel and Dime CB's as well. It has been a while!

I disagree. He's in fact been strong against the run. If I recall correctly, he had two tackles for loss on running plays against he Bengals, for example. He's a better tackler than Taylor is.

the Colclough comment was actually a Myron Cope quote - but it is some disturbing imagery

Thomas Jefferson was the real frontiersman - boldly going where no colonist had gone before

lewis has been solid all seasson. if he would hold on to the ball he'd be a realistic candidate for pro bowl (and we'd be 7-2).

he seems to have the same problems ike had early in his career. good at batting balls away but not much of a ball hawk

I remember those plays... but, alas, I have also seen quite a few others.

I remember against the Raidahs, watching him whiff on the Run-DMC scamper (although, so did the rest of the team).

On a 4th down play against PHILY, I saw him stand there, while McCoy was wobbling and had no where to go... and Lewis merely reached his arms out, to try & stop McCoy... as opposed to drilling his shoulder into McCoy's mid-section.
Result: first down.

Et cetera.

I don't think he is a better tackler than Taylor, but he is a physical corner that does well in run support.

There was one reception by Nicks I think that was a simple 10 yard hook and Lewis hesitated and Nicks turned and went around him. Taylor normally closes on WR's and tackles them before they can make a move.

Lewis is learning and getting comfortable.
