2011 – T.J. Yates – R (2x – including postseason –5th rd pick – 3-4 as a starter – 2 wins against Bengals – 1 300 yard game against Bengals), Kyle Orton (only win – 1-4 – before being benched for good)
2013 – Brian Hoyer (5 yr journeyman backup – 3rd ever start – 3rd string QB in AZ last year – 150 career passing attempts coming into the game)
Impressive! Lewis career record (including playoffs) is 82-86-1….37 of his losses (or 43%) have come against the list of rookies and misfits above (and I didn’t even include his loss to Chad Pennington and 2 losses to a past-his-prime Drew Bledsoe)!
That, my friends, is exactly why playing the great Thad Lewis on Sunday scares the bejesus out of me – and should scare the bejesus out of all Bengals fans – on Sunday.
