Ep: 165 – Lions Two Minute Drill ft Dan Orlovsky – The Detroit Lions Podcast

Detroit Lions Podcast Show Notes:

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined again by a familiar face in Case! Yep, Case is back and ready to rock while the Riz takes some time with the family this week. We’re also joined by Dan Orlovsky to break down what happens ‘Inside The Helmet’ during the two minute drill.  There’s a lot to cover with Case’s return, so let’s get into it…

After celebrating the glorious return of Case, we get right into it by looking into the Lions game against the New York Giants. Is it time to worry? Panic? Full freak out? We talk about areas of concern and what to watch for going forward. Spoiler: it’s not time to panic.

Lions Player Breakdown

We take some time to dive into the play we saw from Jarrad Davis and Glover Quinn in particular. What should we be thinking about what we saw and what does the future look like for these guys and their roles on the team? Opinions are all over the place, particularly the extremes, on these guys. The Detroit Lions Podcast is here to provide real context for you and help you to level set. time to look at things through a realistic lens.

Matthew Stafford has made headlines with the birth of his new child (Kelly may have had a role here). We congratulate the family and talk about what he’s said about risking missing a game with more children. That’s really the most important thing, right? Right?

Then we go in depth on Golden Tate, Ameer Abdullah, and Theo Riddick. There’s a lot to talk about here from contracts to where they might play and what it means for the team. It’s worth the time to listen to the analysis here which will help you understand why certain players are where they are on the depth chart (and/or trading block).

Dan Orlovsky Breaks Down The Two Minute Offense

Lastly, we have a Detroit Lions Podcast special, another great interview with Dan Orlovsky. Dan spends time talking about his broadcast career advancement and the Lions preseason work. Most importantly, he goes deep in breaking down the 2 minute drill from inside the Quarterback’s helmet. What’s he’s hearing, what he’s thinking, and what he’s looking for.
