Rookie defensive lineman Aidan Hutchinson has upped his total to 7.0 sacks this season. He passes Kalimba Edwards (6.5) for the fourth most sacks by a rookie in franchise history. He is the first player in team history to log at least 7.0 sacks, two interceptions and a fumble recovery in a season.
Fellow rookie James Houston recorded his fourth sack in just his third game since being activated from the practice squad. The only rookies in team history to record at least one sack in three straight games are: Houston, Cliff Avril (2008) and Tracy Scroggins (1992).
Lions rookies have now produced 12.0 sacks on the season, which leads the NFL and ties the franchise record set in 1987 for the most combined sacks by rookies in a season.
I’ve heard the current Goff/Lions situation comp’d to the Alex Smith/Mahommes sitch…I get it, but wasnt Smith like 33 and already on the downside? Point is, Goff is in his prime at only 28…the team may have their QB for at least the next 3-5 years imo, pending they want pay him top $ especially if he wins a div/playoff games by next season.
Goff is an enigma. He is the worst quarterback who has ever been according to the internet, but he’s also better than Alex Smith has ever been. So it stands to reason that he should be replaced by a QB that is much worse than Patrick Mahones. Get used to bitching about Levis.
