Former Panther Quarterback Jeff Lewis Passes Away

That's a sad thing to hear. I remember when we signed him prior to the 1999 season to be the QB of the future. Then Steve Beuerlein stepped up and took the job for good. When Seifert cut Beuerlein prior to the 2001 season to make Jeff Lewis the QB it proved to be his undoing. Especially since Jeff Lewis didn't even make the team that year. If he keeps Beuerlein he might still have a job.

RIP Jeff Lewis.

Seifert cut Beuerlein because he "didn't want to be tempted to use him"

Fast forward to today and JR is seriously considering making Beane the HMFIC

Why do goobers run this team

I remember when George Seifert dumped Steve Beuerlein and went after Jeff Lewis with the intent of making him the starter. I was in disbelief for probably a week.

If Lewis ever wound up playing a single snap in a game that counted for us, I've forgotten it.

He played some towards the end of the 2000 season.

Didn't he come to us from Denver? Was he a Dan Reeves draftee?

The last I had heard of him, some guy here had posted that he went to a Hyundai dealership in Florida IIRC, and Lewis was a salesman there. From what I remember, he said Lewis was very personable and didn't seem embarrassed or bitter about how his career went at all. I got the impression that he was happy where he was...

Definitely sad news. RIP Jeff.
