I am a buffalo Bills fan. We just signed Manny Lawson. Could some of you give me your take on him as a player. Thanks

Pretty much the definition of a mediocre SLB.

He's tall and lanky. Can run fast, with some pass rushing ability. Not good in coverage, not especially physical.

Gives up on plays, not good in coverage. Average vs the run, not a sound tackler. He is fast and big. That's about it

The biggest, fastest player on the field that you'll never see. Someone he manages to be invisible...

Lewis on if he was surprised about Manny Lawson signing with Buffalo: "No, that's good things for us."

Interpret that as you will.

Lawson was taken two spots ahead of Jonathan joseph in the 06 draft, and if the 9ers hadn'tve taken him, Marvin would've.

I think he disappointed Marvin & Zimmer this time around.

Speaking personally, I was excited when we signed him, but he didn't play up to my expectations. Disappointing to say, but i don't think he was an upgrade at SLB from Maualuga.

Never been a fan of how Marvin takes shots at players...

Yeah, don't like that bulletin board stuff; especially from a HC; he should know better.

Especially considering we don't yet have a replacement for Manny yet, and we have to go play in Buffalo this year. That sort of stuff tends to come back and bite you in the a$$.
