Ep: 159 – Lions Camp Battles To Watch – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Jeff “The Riz” Risdon as Case drifts off into the abyss of offseason depression.  No worries, we’ve upped his meds and he looks ready to return for the next episode!

In this show we fill in all of the details for our Detroit Lions Podcast Training Camp Party! Its August 4th at the Uptown Grille in Commerce Township from 6pm – 9pm.  There will be food, drinks, prizes, a live streamed (audience interactive) podcast, special guests, and a whole lot more! Since we’re doing all of this in a private room, be ready for the ultimate in pants-free podcasts!

We also go deeper into the roster with discussions on some of the under-the-radar camp battles that need to be watched. The Jake Rudock vs. Matt Cassel battle might be one of the most impactful of the deep battles, but ultimately, we wind up hoping it’s pointless.  Without Matthew Stafford, things would look grim for the Detroit Lions even with the revamped O-line and likely the best receiving duo (Golden Tate and Marvin Jones) in the NFL.  Chris and the Riz talk about a number of other positions and break down what they mean for the team. The Frank Ragnow and Graham Glasgow backup situation becomes quite interesting and leads to tight end talk… It’s crazy how these moves can cascade and impact a roster.

Don’t forget about the Detroit Lions Podcast Fantasy Football League – signups are now open and you can win real money by playing with/against the Detroit Lions Podcast crew. We tell you how to sign up during the show, but here’s a link so you can get your spot while listening to the show.

We also talk about Jarrad Davis, fake news, clickbait, and get taken around the division with the Riz. It’s an excellent episode that you don’t want to miss.
