Patriots finally announce acquisition of Damione Lewis

First word of a deal came eight days ago.  Finally, the Patriots have acknowledged that veteran defensive tackle Damione Lewis has joined the team.

Lewis was the 12th overall pick in the 2001 draft, one of three first-rounders that the Greatest Show of Turf devoted to a defense that had become the Greatest Sieve on Turf.  (The others?  Ryan Pickett and Adam Archuleta.)

Lewis has spent the past four years with the Panthers, after five with the Rams.  He started every game last year in Carolina. 

He had a indirect role in the Eagles’ decision to dump Donovan McNabb; in Week One, Lewis dove onto McNabb after he had clearly crossed the goal line, breaking a rib and opening the door for Kevin Kolb to show that he could get the job done by becoming the first quarterback in league history to throw for 300-plus yards in back-to-back starts.  Lewis was neither penalized nor fined.

    “Kevin Kolb to show that he could get the job done by becoming the first quarterback in league history to throw for 300-plus yards in back-to-back starts”
    He was the first to throw for 300 yds in back to back starts or the first to do it in his FIRST back to back starts?

    Yes. Lewis is totally to blame. LOL

    Hmmmm…a Pats thread. I imagine it will be littered with Jets haters crowing about not winning the Super Bowl for the last 41 years and saying THIS is the year. LOL

  5. Child_Please! says: Apr 10, 2010 9:01 AM

    The Patriots are officially irrelevant again. Why bother posting anything about this team?
    What have they done since not being able to cheat?
    How many of the Patriots “fans” were seen bailing on them during the beatdown in the playoffs?
    I am willing to bet that 90% of the Patriots “fans” of the last decade are now wearing Jets jerseys. Those 90% only became bandwagon fans of the Patriots a lil over 10 years ago. Now that the overrated, fraudulent team and the overrated and overhyped head cheat has been dethroned by the Jets and Rex Ryan, look for the bandwagoners to jump ship to the Jets.
    Fear not though, those same arrogant, mouthy, chowder eating morons will still come on here, run their mouth, and try to convince everyone they were Jets fans since the days of Broadway Joe.
    Patriots are dead! There is a new dynasty in the AFC East, AND a new “genius”.
    LMAO, and I am not a fan of either team!

    @Child_Please! :
    The only arrogant, mouthy moron in this thread is you, you jackass.
    Idiots like you have been tolling the death bell for the Patriots longer than Florio has been for Terry Bradshaw. I don’t see it.
    As for the bandwagoners, you can have them. Every successful team gathers a few over the years and only jealous fans of loser teams like you enjoy pointing that out.
    You may now return to your sucky life and try and root for your sucky team ( I’m thinking the Raiders).

    Lewis never lived up to the position he was drafted, but as a Panthers PSL owner for the 4 years he was with us, he has been a hard worker who did a quality job. Not sure how he will be as a defensive end in their 3-4, but either way it is a good addition for the Patriots.

  8. blackglass says: Apr 10, 2010 9:57 AM

    LOL @ Child_Please! The next thing he types that contains a coherent thought will be his first.

  9. Pastabelly says: Apr 10, 2010 10:05 AM

    Ha! No Patriots fan will wear a Jets jersey. They haven’t even been to a Super Bowl in over four decades and they won’t any time soon. The Patriots have actually been to six of them in the past 25 years – not bad.
    It would be nice if the Jets actually, you know, won something before their ever obnoxious fans acted as if they did.

  10. Florio-is-a-tool says: Apr 10, 2010 10:08 AM

    Child-Please, yep you’re right but don’t tell anyone, it’s a secret. Still when I think of Jets I think of the most overrated QB in NFL history (career 65.5 QB rating).

  11. spudz says: Apr 10, 2010 10:13 AM

    Last time I checked the Patriots were the AFC East Champions…

  12. owenc says: Apr 10, 2010 10:27 AM

    did they not go 16-0 after they were caught cheatin? they mitent have won the superbowl dat year, but its still pretty impressive

  13. Kenny Powers says: Apr 10, 2010 10:46 AM

    Yes they had an unbeaten regular season, the most consecutive wins in one season of all time and a perfect regular season for the first time since the Phins did it (they only won 14). So essentially they were the best team of all time immediately after the scandal and they accomplished more in that one season than the Jets have in 40+ tries. Not to mention they have had a better record than the Jets in every season since then, even with a season long injury to Brady and through a rebuilding process that they are still going through.

    ATTENTION PFT
    PLEASE DO NOT POST ANY MORE PATRIOTS STORIES, THERE ARE NO MORE PATRIOTS FANS TO READ THEM.

  15. tj.52 says: Apr 10, 2010 11:23 AM

    @123456:
    I’m assuming that your creative username is the same as your:
    1) password
    2) luggage combination
    3) education level
    4) number of hours it took you to come up with that thoughtful, caps-lock ridden post.
    Keep trying to be funny, it will happen someday. ( just kidding, it won’t )

    @ 123456;
    LMAO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. blackglass says: Apr 10, 2010 12:25 PM

    There are still plenty of Patriot fans, dunce. Foxboro has been sold out for every single game since Robert Kraft bought the team. Just because most of them are bored replying to your troll bait type posts OR actually not sitting on a computer on a beautiful Saturday afternoon doesn’t mean there are none. Also, you guys should stick with the times…the new cool team for message board losers to hate are the Steelers. Hating on the Patriots is played, just like Coogi jeans and Titanic references.
    Reply if you want, but I am going to enjoy a Saturday afternoon with my son at Six Flags.

    New Jersey Jets Fans. The most retarded, felonious fans in the world – and it starts with their fearless leader, that tiny little bald headed fireman asshat. Every time that DBag gets up on that big, goofy cross-eyed retards shoulders the flashbacks kick in to “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome” and Master Blaster ruling the underworld.

  19. Murabma says: Apr 10, 2010 2:33 PM

    @child_please, nice post–methinks all the Pats* “fans” protesteth a touch too much. They’ll be lucky to be 9-7 next season and it gets worse from there as their core ages (particularly if Big Bob’s FA checkbook has run out–might have something to do with being in the paper business in an electronic world–and Belicheat keeps drafting the way he has the last 5-6 years). I’m not a fan of either team, but I’d have to say the Jets seem to have a much brighter future than the Cheats*.
    PS On your bandwagon theory, I’ve long subscribed to that as well–I visited one of the Pats* most popular message boards for the first time in a while this week and there was almost no activity, which should be shocking (the board I frequent for the Bills, for ex., had literally ten times as many posts that day than the Pats* board) except for the bandwagonista nature of their fanbase….

    There is a new dynasty in the AFC East,
    Maybe the new “dynasty” can actually win the division sometime soon.

  21. Patriots51 says: Apr 10, 2010 2:47 PM

    please tell us 123456 where did all the Patriots fans go?? im right here you little punk… Oh and is there ANY doubt that Child_please and 123456 are the same person..?you really need to get a job.. get a girlfriend.. hell get a dog… hell just get something that’ll give you at least some fulfillment in life

    Imagine you’re on trial and you have a very strong case but you have an idiot like Child Please on the jury.

    ChildPlease,
    I MUST take issue with what you said…..if your part of the country had a local resource as good as our clams, you’d be a chowder eater too!!!!

  24. Kate773 says: Apr 10, 2010 4:47 PM

    Yes, they’re so irrelevant and dead that every time Florio posts any thing about them you get at least 10 posts from retards about “cheating” or “*”. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

  25. Child_Please! says: Apr 10, 2010 5:01 PM

    @blackglass;
    Yes, please do take your son to Six Flags. Spend a bunch of money there. Dan Snyder needs people like you to bail his company out.

  26. downwithdansnyder says: Apr 11, 2010 8:12 AM

    The original PFT would never let mistake stay in print. I just don’t think Kolb was “the first quarterback in league history to throw for 300-plus yards in back-to-back starts”.
    See above posts for lists of people that did it before and more often than Kolb. I guess Florio meant first two (back to back) starts. But who needs to be accurate in today’s world of social media. People say whatever they want and the heard listens without verification or quality editing to ensure accuracy.
