a healthy Lewis is a better back than White IMO...more shake and bake, more yards after contact.White is a better back
besides, Lewis is doing KR....be nice if he could do punts
White caught 3 of 5 targets, including one for 26 yards.I love our RBs and we have alot of versatility. But seemed hard to get into/keep a rythym just getting spot carries here and there.
I felt white ran well but dont recall him catching many. Lewis seemed the least used.
Burkhead had a no gain and a decent run and one pass where they missed a PI badly.
Still kind of hard to figure out our direction outside Gilislee is in the blount role.
Not disagreeing with you but I think they need him to somehow fill some of the Edelman void. I say that because I think he has the explosiveness to create separation in the short routes.I just realized that this is the first game the Pats lost with him actively playing.
It is odd that he is at the very bottom of the totem pole. It makes me think he could be traded for help elsewhere.

I'm assuming he's not the same player as pre injury, but with limited snaps it's tough to judge. Coach BB sees him every day, so I guess that all that matters.
Burkhead getting paid some good $$ for seeing just 10 snaps.
did we forget how great he was pre injury?a healthy lewis is something like a unicorn.......you can't count on something that might only be around half the time
what's the difference between 'shake and bake' and dancing? Lewis is healthy and White is getting the snaps
To me, he hasn't regained the explosiveness he had pre-injury. Whether he will in time remains to be seen.Weird.... I was feeling the same way. Lewis saw so few snaps despite being healthy.
I know he was used on kick returns primarily, so it could be a pitch count kinda thing. But he definitely needs to split more reps with Burkhead and White. He was clearly under-user on offense. Why? I dunno
A guy like Lewis is a nice piece to have, but he's been in the league since 2011 and never topped more than 283 yards or 2 TDs (rushing or receiving) in a single season.Is the guy still recovering and not the same player? I thought he would be getting more snaps...guy was electric before the injury.
I think he's more like a leprechaun than a unicorn, but your point still stands.a healthy lewis is something like a unicorn.......
