McCoy vs Suh. Was anyone really doubting?


This place was hopping around the time of our annual Christmas (draft day), and the arguments were whether we needed an OT, or if we'd end up taking one of the top two DTs, either Suh or Gerald McCoy.

As we all know, Suh was considered by most to be the single most impactful player in the draft.  McCoy ended up going third overall to the Tampa Bay Bucs.

This is why I'm fairly happy with the stat that I saw on the Yahoo! Lions Team Report today:

By The Numbers:   4.5—Sacks for rookie defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh(notes), more than the entire Tampa Bay Buccaneers team (4).

I don't think Gerald McCoy is Just A Guy, but Suh is a force of nature.  He's double-teamed almost every down, and there's no doubt that our D-Line is among the best in the NFL now.  Suh is a huge part of why.
