Marvin Lewis was a little feisty in these comments, when asked by reporters, why the Bengals aren’t making a bigger splash in Free Agency.
“Mo Sanu [is] way ahead of where one certain receiver [Johnson] was in his second year playing in the National Football League. I’ll go on record saying that,” Lewis told Joe Reedy of the Enquirer. “That’s the uneducated putting dumb thoughts in people’s minds. It’s why you have an opportunity to go after these guys and go get these guys. So you continue to make your team better.
“You are not a positive in making your team better when you keep adding old guys. What did Randy Moss do for those guys last year? He did nothing. He got in the way of a younger player performing.”
He was able to get in a dig on at Ocho and Randy, at the same damn time. I do agree with his philosophy though. I disagree with him, in regard to Randy Moss. I think he helped Crabtree, Kaepernick and others, a lot more than what people are giving him credit for.
