The Montreal Alouettes wasted no time in signing defensive end Chima Ihekwoaba this month when he was released by the Detroit Lions.
“Montreal is a great organization,” said Ihekwoaba still sporting his Wilfred Laurier Golden Hawks jacket and who has only been in Montreal for the past two weeks. “They [Alouettes] have embraced me and took me under their wing.”
The well-designed play unfolded perfectly. Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan strategically mapped it out to get big yardage against the Minnesota Vikings, and speedy Jahvid Best was about to catch a pass with acres of open running room in front of him.
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
