Ep: 108 – Lions Orr Bust – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case hit power levels over 9000 – incredible offseason numbers – particularly in one of the slowest news weeks in the NFL.

Before we get too deep, a reminder that there will be no show the week of July 10th, but the boys will be back the following week and every week thereafter through the Lions bye. Things are going to get pretty hot, pretty fast.

One very important topic is that the Detroit Lions Podcast Fantasy Football League is back! Not only is it back, its going to be better than ever.  Be sure to hit the website to join the league and get in-depth information about the rules.

News about the Lions begins with a dive into the world of Zach Orr and what makes him a compelling player for the Lions.  We discuss specifically what his health issue means, and we talk about the moral and legal questions around signing him.  We also weigh in on whether we would bring him aboard or not, and justify our thinking.  It’s a pretty big discussion as Zach brings with him a number of things to talk about.

The guys also talk about Eric Ebron and how he most relates to Antonio Gates, All or Nothing on Amazon Prime, and what Lions fans should think about Dorial Green-Beckham (hint: he ain’t no Greg Robinson).

We also take a few minutes to talk about former Lions Safety, Jimmy “Spider-man” Allen, and his amazing rendition of “Another One Bites The Dust”.  Chris thinks back to what it was like when that one hit the streets and how everyone thought the Lions had kicked the curse thanks to an amazing defense and a young Billy Sims…
