Ep: 142 – Lions Coach Busy At The Super Bowl – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case are joined again by Jeff Risdon and while the Lions season is over, there’s still plenty to talk about.

We start the show talking about Darius Slay and the fact that he was “named” to be the number three cornerback in the league. There’s plenty to be contentious about here, not that we don’t love Darius, but Bleacher Report’s methodology is a bit whacked out here.

We also spend some time discussing TJ Lang and his push into the Pro Bowl. There are a few questions about what this means, and how good the selection process is.  Unfortunately, it seems that the process is still broken and that we are still a few years off from stacking the team with Lions

While on the topic of Lions coaches, we work through the idea that Matt Patricia is already letting coaches go. Its a classy move in the end, but is still strange for a guy who isn’t hired yet to be firing members of the staff. We talk a bit about if Matt Patricia flakes on us, and that is a conversation that doesn’t end well for anyone..

We also start our draft season talk with the Riz’s breakdown on what he saw during the practice week in the run-up to the Senior Bowl.  Riz also starts talking about the Lions draft needs after publishing his first mock draft on the Detroit Lions Podcast website.

Of course, Case does his thing and takes us around the division with our old school bass drop.
