Ep: 85 – Lions Look to the Giants – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris  and Case break down the latest and most important Detroit Lions news, discuss the win against the dubious win against the Bears, share sounds of the game for the #SwitchToTheRadio push, and chat with James Kratch of the Star-Ledger and NJ.com. This week the Riz (Jeff Risdon) takes a break but we push forward with some deep Lions chat.

During ‘This Week In Reddit’, we talk about the Lions win against the Bears and whether John Fox’s familiarity with Jim Bob Cooter helped him scheme the game against our Lions.  We also talk more about #SwitchToTheRadio where we highlight the great game calls by Dan Miller and Jim Brandstatter – we also sneak in the announcement that Dan Miller will be joining us on next week’s show.  If you are listening to the likes of Joe Buck calling games, you are missing out on some of the most compelling play calls of the Lions games.   You must absolutely make the #SwitchToTheRadio.  We also bring you the Fantasy Football Update (including first round playoff results!), and Case takes us for a trip ‘Around the Division’ (with his wicked new intro) to bring us up to date on the latest breaking NFC North news (including the Bears’ position at the bottom of the division for the foreseeable future).

This week in ‘Counterpoint’ we are joined by New York Giants beat writer, James Kratch of the Star-Ledger and NJ.com. We break down the upcoming game, where the Giants looks strong, and where the Lions can take advantage.  We also discuss playoff implications for both teams and how this game is most likely the most important game of the week in that regard.  Everyone agrees, this will be a close game that very well could come down to the final possession of the game.

This week, ‘The Riz’ (Jeff Risdon), takes some well-deserved time off. We’ve been working him pretty hard, and you can bet that you will be seeing a lot more of the Riz going forward…
