Lions rookie running back Mikel Leshoure is — as quarterback Matthew Stafford put it — “a big kid.” But Leshoure’s expectations, for now, are not so big. In fact, they’re downright miniscule when you consider they’ll be shouldered by Leshoure’s considerable 6-foot, 233-pound frame.
“No. 1,” Leshoure said last month about his rookie expectations, “just find a way to get on the field and make the team.”
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.
