Ep: 117 – Lions Look To The Falcons – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case are back to celebrate the Kings in the North after the Lions pummel the New York Giants.

We kick this episode off with a discussion about the Lions performance against the Giants, specifically what Matthew Stafford‘s lower passing numbers mean. We also manage to get a fire re-lit under Chris about Eric Ebron and his performance…

The guys also take some time to celebrate Jarrad Davis and his growth and performance so far, we lament his injury, and also talk about whether some of the shots that Lions players like Davis and Stafford took were malicious or not.

The subject of penalties pops up, and TJ Lang becomes our litmus test for how things might be differently viewed between teams when the officials make calls.  Not enough data yet, but stay tuned for this one.  We also talk about the media and its poor coverage of the Lions, particularly ESPN’s massive dumpster fire that they tried to pawn off as Monday Night Football.  We also talk power rankings, Quandre Diggs, and Chris’s favorite topic, Martha Ford to round things out in This Week in Reddit.

In our next segment, we are joined by one of the most giving individuals we’ve ever known, Sandman.  We talk about his amazing Lions-related and selfless donation as well as his plans for the upcoming Lions postgame shows!

Jeff “The Riz” Risdon is back again and we talk about the Lions running game, Jamal (Spiro) Agnew, and Jim Caldwell in Risdon’s wisdom this week. An excellent segment, one not to be missed.

It doesn’t stop there, we break down the submissions for the Kenny Golladay nickname contest in one of our favorite segments, “Fansanity”.

It’s a great show this week, and its great to be back in the saddle for the 2017 Lions football season.
