What do you think of these guys? They obviously played well on Sunday, but how much of that came from the Lions tackle having mostly prepped for Hardy all week?
I'm a little conflicted. All three of these guys have me optimistic, especially since they're being mentored by Eric Washington and Sam Mills III. On the other hand, I think Horton's start on Sunday might have been the first start among the three of them: 2 of which are young guys that came into the league undrafted and 1 of which is a rookie. I think we'll lose 1 game this year that we would have won if Hardy had been playing. I think that would be pretty acceptable considering we're looking at going the bulk of a year without an All-Pro defensive end.
