Lewis wants the ball

CALGARY - Nik Lewis is wondering aloud if he’s a forgotten man in the Calgary Stampeders offence.

Following a 32-19 loss to the B.C. Lions Saturday night at McMahon Stadium, Lewis complained openly about only getting three catches for 44 yards.

“I haven’t had a ball thrown my way in the second half two weeks in a row,” Lewis said. “If we can watch film and if I’m doing something wrong, I need to correct it. I went against the same guy in the second half as the first half.

“I get three in the first half, just like last week, and then I disappear. I don’t know what to say. I don’t know what I need to do better.

“If I’m doing something wrong, then come tell me I’m doing something wrong. I have (Lions DB) Korey Banks coming up to me after the game and saying, ‘Tell him thanks for not throwing you the ball.’ People see what I do in this league. At least make an attempt.”

Asked if he’s going to address his frustration with the coaching staff, Lewis said, ‘No.’

“Nothing is going to change,” Lewis said. “I’ve already addressed it. If I don’t have the ability to go out and get seven or eight catches a week, then I’m not who I thought I was.”
