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.
