We all know who Tatum Bell is, right? He’s the Lions running back who rode your bench – or hopefully your waiver wire – all of last year, amassing a monster season of 181 yards on 44 carries and one touchdown. Well, apparently poor Tatum got knocked silly on one of those 44 rushes because he seems to believe he is Barry Sanders all of a sudden.
I think I can get 1,300 yards,” Bell said Wednesday. “That’s my goal — at least 1,300, 15 touchdowns. I know it’s reachable.
We know Bell is still a youngster at 27 years old and with the recent changes to the Lions staff there is an opportunity for him to become the feature back, but DAMN man; c’mon! Rushing for over 1,000 in Denver is one thing, but if you expect to go for 1,300 and 15 then you’re going to be in for a rude awakening come next season.
Just ask teammates Roy Williams or Jon Kitna what happens when you go moonshine crazy on predictions.
