Game Notes: Vernon Adams Jr. on historical pace

TORONTO — Vernon Adams Jr. is in pursuit of BC Lions and CFL history.

They are one and the same in this specific case, as Adams Jr. is on pace for the second most all-time passing yards behind Doug Flutie’s 6,619 in 1991 with the Lions. If the current Leos pivot continues dicing up opposing offences on a weekly base at the same pace he would end the 2024 season with 6,307 passing yards.

I dislike it when media take early season stats & project them out over a full season. Rarely comes to pass because they cherry pick the stats that are hardest to maintain. Counting chickens before the eggs are even laid, let alone hatched. Rant over.
