    Rams sign Michael Lewis

    Rams signed safety Michael Lewis, who was recently released by the Niners.

    Good pickup of a veteran who can help at either safety position, particularly at SS while Butler is banged up.

    Re: Rams sign Michael Lewis

    I was wondering about this a few weeks ago when the ***** let him go. I think it is a good pick up to help with DB depth

    Re: Rams sign Michael Lewis

    he should take over Dahl's position straight up cause Dahl has blown chunks all season. Last season he did well but this season has been a different story to say the least!!

    Not sure what you're referring to. Come to think of it, the Rams have really not given up many big pass plays this year, so I'd say the safeties have held their own.

    It seems that Lewis is taking the place of Cliff Ryan who, unfortunately, was placed on IR as a result of his recurring migraines.

    I was thinking the same thing. It can only help our secondary and run defense by bringing in some veteran leadership. I like it!

    That was my first thought. In addition to giving insight on the whiners D, hopefully he can benefit from a change of scenery and provide effective depth, and leave the pouty behavior behind. He was with Spags his entire career in Philly, so he should be able to acclimate reasonably quick.

    Re: Rams sign Michael Lewis

    Lewis seems to be a good add-on / replacement to the secondary. Dahl I like, I think he will get better w/each game.

    Thanks for the news AV.

    Rams sign S Michael Lewis
    By Jim Thomas, October 27, 2010

    With two of their four safeties down with injuries, the Rams signed veteran safety Michael Lewis, who was in for a visit Tuesday at Rams Park.

    Lewis began the season with NFC West rival San Francisco, but when it became apparent he was being phased out of the starting lineup in favor or rookie Taylor Mays, Lewis asked to be traded or released. Lewis got his wish Oct. 4 when he was released by the *****.

    Lewis, 30, earned a Pro Bowl berth following the 2004 season in Philadelphia. For a couple of seasons previously, current Rams head coach Steve Spagnuolo was his position coach.

    Lewis joined the ***** in 2007 and has more than 100 NFL starts on his resume. A strong safety, Lewis has good size 6-1, 222 and is known as a physical run defender.
    PS: That's just a red t-shirt he uses when doing under car maintenance.

    Not saying pass plays saying run after catch ... turning small plays into huge ones. Dahl wiffed hurrendously on the burelson Td Blew a couple of plays in the Seahawks game, and blew a couple plays in the Charger game.

    Re: Rams sign Michael Lewis

    at this point of the season..i don`t think we could have got much better..plus Spags obviously knows him pretty well,Micheal will know the system etc..
    not expecting him to return to his Pro bowl form but i expect him to play some solid football if called upon in the coming weeks

    I'm not sure those things are good even for that. Maybe for toxic waste disposal, but I think the shirt would harm you more than the waste.

    I think this is a sign, maybe a blessing where we can use him with the vengeance after the Whiners used Reverend Ike against us.
