Flowers will be more spectacular. Gibbs will produce more yards.

What are They Saying?

Lions' offensive coordinator Ben Johnson has already hinted at the exciting possibilities the Jahmyr Gibbs/David Montgomery duo might bring to the field, with strategies that could surprise many and show off their versatile skill sets.

“I think we’ve seen a lot of them, and we know what we’re going to expect out of both of those guys,” Johnson said in a recent press conference. “I think they are very… yes, they are complementary backs. What No. 5 does well, Gibbs might not do as well, and vice versa. But I think they both are very versatile. So, we might use Gibbs in some ways that people don’t quite think we might, or Montgomery the same way. I’m really excited to see what they can do out on the field here this week, but we’re going to use them all over the place.”
