Ep: 121 – Lions Look To The Panthers – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case are loving the 3-1 life after the Lions took a game on the road against their division rival Minnesota Vikings.

Big news hits in this episode as Dean Blandino starts his “Detroit Apology Tour” on Twitter in which he decides to do his best to make peace with the city that despises him the most. It’s nice to see him trying to make good for his history with the city and its beloved team, but he missteps along the wayWe call him out and invite him to join the podcast to make good on his apology tour, and amazingly he accepts! Maybe Dean’s heart is in the right place, maybe he really wants to make good with the city and its Football fans, or maybe he really is a heartless troll. Only time will tell, but we decide to open up the opportunity to our listeners to ask their most burning questions.  Follow the instructions in the show, submit your questions, and we’ll get the best ones to Dean.

That’s just us getting things started. We talk Nevin Lawson and his performance, our victory in the meme war against the Vikings subreddit, Glover Quin’s amazing ability to defy age as he continues to ball out, Matt Prater as the NFC Special Teams Player of the Month and so much more in our renowned “This Week in Reddit” segment.

Jeff “The Riz” Risdon is back again and we get his input on the Lions Power Ranking position (ahead of the Falcons!), how well the team performed when Stafford had a bad day, TJ Lang and how highly he thinks of our Quarterback, and the fact that the Lions/Panthers game is the only match-up this week in which both teams are over .500.

Lastly, we visit the crazy world of Fansanity, where things are never quite right in the head.

It’s an awesome week in podcasting.
