Thad Lewis is a "gamer" with some skills and is not afraid to take shots. He was our third-string guy for a couple years under Shurmur (man I hate typing Shurmur). While he might turn the ball over a couple times he at least is willing to try to make the play to get points. Tuel seems to be more conservative and is definitely more physically limited than Lewis.
If I were playing against the Bills again I'd rather see Tuel in there than Lewis.
No doubt. If we're facing Tuel, it's a win for sure. I just don't buy that we're facing him.
