We might seriously think about safety Michael Lewis


Starting 49er safety Michael Lewis was cut by the team after being demoted. But he wasn’t cut for being terrible it seems – he was cut because he asked to be cut if he wasn’t going to start.  He started the first 3 games of the season (and the last 4 years)  and then was demoted in favor of a young guy with lots of potential: Taylor Mays. You’ll remember Michael Lewis likely from his days in the Philly D.

Assuming the 49ers planned to keep him on the team (again, he asked to be cut), he’s probably not terrible. And Mays has been playing well (had a spectacular special teams TD last Sunday). While Lewis may have a bit of an attitude that needs exploring, the fact is we have an opportunity to nab a safety who was an NFL starter for years (up until last week). Why not bring him in at least? If Bigby isn’t in “playing shape” after Week 6, which I just heard this morning is possible, why not have another option there whose veteranocity, if you will, might enable him to pick up the defensive scheme quicker than some other guy.

    Seattle swipes Marshawn Lynch from the Bills

    So much for the Buffalo Bills driving a hard bargain when it comes to a possible trade of running back Marshawn Lynch.

    Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the Seahawks have finagled Lynch from the Bills for a fourth-round pick in 2011 and a conditional pick in 2012.

    As recently as Monday, the prevailing word was that, even though Lynch wanted out, the Bills wouldn’t be trading him.

    Now they have. And the 2-2 Seahawks have picked up a potentially powerful weapon for their run at the NFC West crown.

    Meanwhile, the Packers continue to have no one to run the ball. As we pointed out in this week’s power rankings, the pass-heavy attack should be working really well when the weather turns at Lambeau Field.

    Lynch is under contract through 2012, but it’s possible that the sixth year of his rookie deal voids

    You ask, why not bring him in? Because it’s TT–that’s why. Getting more & more disillusioned with this staff….

    Our top running back runs a 4.7 40…yeah, that should work out well come December. Nice job TT.

    i think we need micheal lewis just for the added depth at safety
    and if the organization doesn’t want to commit to a running back then make atrade offer to Ricky Williams ,Brian Westbrook or even bring Ahman Green back , there is still a undrafted running back out there by the name of Ian Johnson
