Lewis Says Mangini Wearing Out the Team

Jamal Lewis
For those of you that didn’t hear, Jamal Lewis started some more drama today in the locker room, telling reporters that Eric Mangini is wearing out the team. “The way we work in two-a-days in training camp and the way we work every day on the field for two and a half, three hours, you want a ‘W’ on Sunday when you work like that,” Lewis said. “There’s talent all over this locker room, young and old, but the talent has to be ready on Sunday and to be fresh for Sunday and be efficient on Sunday.

“You can work as hard as you want. You can work all day seven days a week all the way up until Sunday in practice. At the same time, if you’re going to work like that, maybe on Sunday you’re not going to get what you want out of your players.”

Seems that at this point, Lewis, who has already said he is retiring after this season, simply wants to walk away. The Browns are 1-7, he’s not playing well, and the offense is awful and going back to Brady Quinn at QB this Sunday. If he thinks he’s going to talk his way out of the Browns locker room, won’t happen. But he’s not making many friends in the front office after these comments.

    I just lost a ton of respect for Jamal Lewis. As a Team Captain, voted on by his teammates, it is his responsibility to talk to the coach about such issues, but behind closed doors. Do not get me wrong, I am in NO WAY a Mangini fan, but to go to the press with his comments and not confront the coach, like a man to his face is a cowards way of doing things.

    If someone were to talk behind his back Lewis would be beside himself screaming of disrespect this and that and talk to me face to face. When he accepted the posistion as team Captain he accepted the responsibility to be that person to speak to the coach and team admin to bring up issues, that is what a Capt would do, that is what a man would do.

    This is just another symptom of what is wrong with Mangini and the Browns, players go to the Press because the coach and team do not communicate with others whether it is players, coaches, fans, or the Press. My question to Jamal is did you even attempt to talk to Mangini or did you just whine to the press because you are not man enough to live up to your title as team captain and let down not only your teammates but yourself as well.
