Ep: 80 – Lions Look to the Vikings ft. Chris Kluwe – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris takes the studio to Detroit in preparation for the upcoming Thanksgiving game. He and Case break down the latest and most important Detroit Lions news, find joy in the ongoing NFC North meltdown (even though Minnesota pulled it together), and chat with former Minnesota Vikings punter, Chris Kluwe. The Riz (Jeff Risdon) is on a much needed vacation this week.

During ‘This Week In Reddit’, we talk about some of the excellent entries we have in the “What Would You Do For A Lions Hat?” contest and remind listeners that they have until the end of November to submit their entries. We spend some time breaking down which players are rejoining the team (just in time) and what that means. We also spend a very short amount of time waving good bye to a player that never caught on. We talk about the excellent “rooting guide” that Case is putting together in the subreddit, relish the Lions’ position in the division (first place!) and have some straight talk about Andre Roberts. We break out a listener call, update everyone about Chris’s fantasy league domination, and Case takes us for a trip ‘Around the Division’ to bring us up to date on the latest breaking NFC North news.

This week, ‘The Riz’ (Jeff Risdon), spends some time with his family to get some much needed/deserved PTSD recovery time from Chris and Case. No worries, he’ll be back next week, but we’ve got a special surprise for our listeners in his place…

We dive into a fun segment that’s always been a fan favorite, “Counterpoint”, and have a great discussion about the Minnesota Vikings with the ultimate Vikings insider, Chris Kluwe. We talk about his career in Minnesota, what the team means to him, and get an insider’s view of the NFL from a specialists’ perspective. He also does a great job of breaking down this week’s match-up from the Vikings side of the field. This is can’t miss info.
