    We are losing a lot of key players and it sucks. What are we going to spend on?

    Dola, Butler and Lewis on the same day. Damn.

    It feels like we’re working with half the salary cap of certain other teams.

    This is where recent drafts are kicking us in the ass. There is no margin for error.

    It is because we are. Some of these teams have like 4 times the cap space we do.

    I feel the same way about this as I do about Amendola. Amendola was arguably one of the biggest bargains in football over the past season. Lewis took a make-good deal from the Pats, managed to stay healthy this year, and now is cashing in. Good for both of them.

    While I hope for the best for both guys, I wouldn't bet my life on either of them playing more than 8 games next year if they are given playing time commensurate with their new incomes.

    I get that and want no part of some of the contracts reported today. Things still seem tight. It sucks we were late to the dance on Bennett.

    To amplify this, Lewis signed an initial reserves/future deal, then took a second way-below-market extension right before he hurt himself in 2015, so the Patriots already had him for longer than they might have, if Lewis had different risk preferences in 2015.

    Everyone is (understandably) upset over losing Lewis, DA, and Butler on the same day, but we have to remember that no one had heard of two of these three guys until they became stars on the Pats. And the third, DA, didn't seem to have much value on the open market until his 3rd awesome postseason with the Pats. They'll find replacements, they always do. No one had any faith in James White until 2016.

    Zach Cox reporting that Lewis is happy to be at a place now where people believe in him. Sigh. These ex-Pats are too much.

    Me too. I think he sees himself as an everydown back, which he filled at times last year very well. However over a few seasons I think injuries would set in very quickly

    Yeah. If he were a lead back since 2015, he doesn’t get this contract. I get the confidence but he’s going into a similar situation in 2018.

    Yeah, someone might want to tell him he also won't be the featured back for Tenn.

    If there's one thing, one friggin' thing, that being a sports fan in this media-obsessed age can teach us, it's that isolated quotes can mean anything the reporter, or reader, wants them to. And in the context of sports, it's entertainment and getting riled up over a stupid quote is fun and who has time to bother with investigating it because its sports. But when that attitude bleeds over into other types of coverage...

    Damon was actually an example where he did say stupid shit (IIRC) and let on about his feelings being hurt by Boston fans. So in toto he's a bad example. But Rev's chosen quote is a good example because it's totally benign and is just something someone says to make nice and rah rah for the new team and anyone reading anything into it more than that is looking for something that isn't there. It's not a "I hate Boston!" quote, but surely someone would/did think that's what Damon was really saying.

    As usual, context is everything Lewis is talking about the entire breadth of his career, and how he's overcome doubts over injuries and size to get where he is now. The "someone who believes in you" comment was part of a larger quote about that journey, speaking more to a team reaching out to him ... and there's no supporting evidence to suggest he was knocking the Patriots:

    http://www.titansonline.com/news/ar...otivated/bbc82943-c9d9-441b-9d72-0c454cb4b1fd

    If the poster who had started this segue had taken five minutes to find the quote, we'd have saved a bandwidth tree or two
