    I have also analyzed the data and it suggests a correlation between losses and cities with the best strip clubs. Although in Buffalo, Lewis would have needed to cross the border into Toronto against team policy. Plausible though. For the rest of the season, only Houston has a quality strip club called Treasures so we may have one more loss coming in late December.

    Yes he did....he totally sealed that lineman off allowing Tanny to break the pocket...

    I understand that Lewis is a better blocker than Henry and some game situations call for predominately throwing the ball. I also know that Henry is truly our only quick strike threat besides maybe AJ Brown with a YAC play....Humpheries, Davis, Sharpe, Smith...etc...they don't scare anyone in terms of hitting the home run....and Lewis certainly doesn't.....IMO the value of having your best playmaker on the field for the majority of the snaps puts more pressure on a defense than having Lewis who is a better blocker getting 25 snaps a game.

    When Henry is in the game the LBers and safeties have to respect the possibility of a run which helps open up the middle of the field as they bite on play action. They do not have to respect Lewis's run threat at all...Lewis has seen 247 snaps this yr and he has run the ball 21 times and his longest run has been 15 yards...so we are throwing the ball 92% of the time when Lewis is in the game...so it should be a real surprise to the defense when Lewis does run the ball and yet he still is only averaging 3.7 yds per carry

    Look....Dion can block better than Henry so let me ask you this. Do you want a RB that gives you better pass protection or more YPC?

    I want a guy who protects better to play in passing situations, just like it’s being done.

    I don't understand why it's so hard to be good at pass protection after 4 years in the league, especially with how big Henry is?

    Regardless of that, we have to upgrade RB2 in this offseason. If Henry goes down, no way Lewis can carry the load.

    You are just wrong about this. Henry is every bit as good as Lewis in the passing and blocking game. Maybe not in the beginning, but Lewis isnt as good as he used to be and Henry is better. Henry has easily caught up to Lewis in his declining state.

    Henry for some unkown reason gets a bad rep for being a bad blocker. Dude is a solid blocker too. Imo better than lewis at it. I see several occasions where lewis bails too soon to go out for pass instead of blocking
