New Lions quarterback Jared Goff just isn’t cutting it, at least that’s the vibe among Lions commentators, fans and critics alike. Goff and the Lions have yet to pull off a win this season. Their latest game was a hard loss, being defeated by the Cincinnati Bengals, 34-11.
Former Lions running back Joique Bell isn’t happy about the showing. During Tuesday’s (Oct. 19) “Big D Energy” on Woodward Sports Network, Bell let it all hang out.
“That’s not Detroit football. That’s not a Detroit quarterback,” Bell said. “Stafford would have stayed in there, took the hit and got the pass off. Got the first down and we would have had a fighting chance.”
Bell continued, “We have a quarterback doing those type of things and gives the defense no confidence. No confidence at all. So moving forward, I am not going to play as hard. When you go look at a team like Tampa Bay, where there defense is playing beyond their means, because they have a quarterback that’s always going to have them in a position to win the game.”
Next up, the Lions take on the Los Angeles Rams at SoFi Stadium. Yes, that means we’re going up against Stafford. Let’s brace for it.
