In this episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case break down the latest and most important Detroit Lions news, celebrate the /r/nfl vote to make http://detroitlions.reddit.com the best damn subreddit in the league, and get the latest from Jeff Risdon who is back in town after Shrine Week and the Senior Bowl.
During ‘This Week In Reddit’, the Detroit Lions Podcast guys talk about Matt Prater and the Pro Bowl. They take a look at a rule that allows a free kick for a field goal after making a fair catch (having seen Matt Prater’s 76 yard FG in Pro Bowl practice), do a deep dive on the Lions running game and why a Running Back isn’t an ideal first round draft pick. They also spend some time on Ash Thompson’s great series, “Keep or Can”, about the Lions’ free agents and some of the other great content on the http://www.detroitlionspodcast.com website. There is also an in-depth discussion about Matthew Stafford’s contract and why he does or doesn’t deserve the “big one”. Case also takes us for a trip ‘Around the Division’ (with the high dollar intro) and brings us up to date on the latest breaking NFC North news.
This week, ‘The Riz’ (Jeff Risdon), discusses the Senior Bowl, some players who really upped their stock, and some opinions about Coach Caldwell that he picked up from insiders around the league. We also take an early look at free agency and go in-depth on Larry Warford and his future in Detroit. We also tease a huge announcement coming next week.
