Ep: 87 – Lions and the Cowboys ft. Dan Miller – 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 most recent loss to the New York Giants, share sounds of the game for the #SwitchToTheRadio push, and chat with Detroit Lions Radio Network play-by-play man and Fox 2 News Sports Director, Dan Miller. This week the Riz (Jeff Risdon) is back, and we go deep with some Lions chat.

During ‘This Week In Reddit’, we talk about the Lions loss against the Giants and what kind of effect it might have on the Lions playoff and Division Championship aspirations.  We also talk more about #SwitchToTheRadio where we highlight the great game calls by Dan Miller and Jim Brandstatter – all this is just a prelude to this episode’s interview with Dan Miller where we conduct the first Detroit Lions Podcast virtual AMA with the Lions subreddit.  We spend some time in This Week in Reddit to discuss the futures of Jim Caldwell, Teryl Austin, and Jim Bob Cooter.  We also bring you the Fantasy Football Update (including second 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 while Chris openly laughs at Vikings fans.

This week we were honored to be joined on the Detroit Lions Podcast by the voice of The Detroit Lions Radio Network, and Director of Sports at Detroit’s Fox 2 News, Dan Miller. He spends a lot of time with us and talks Lions players, the organization, coaches and more in our first ever subreddit virtual AMA where we ask the top-voted user questions of Dan.  He spends his time opening up about what this job and its impact on the fans means to him.  Dan is one of the most wonderful people you will ever meet, he is an even better person than you imagine.

This week, ‘The Riz’ (Jeff Risdon), is back to talk Giants, Injuries, roster moves and breaks down the upcoming game against the Cowboys. Chris also fans the flames on the rift between the Riz and Case over people from Cleveland by bringing up more of Case’s hateful remarks. Other than that bit, it’s a lot of great conversation (as usual).
