Ep: 173 – Lions Look To The Packers – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Jeff “The Riz” Risdon for a look at the 1-3 Lions, their performance against the Dallas Cowboys, a breakdown of the game, and a look ahead at their next match-up against the Green Bay Packers.

We start the Detroit Lions Podcast with calls from our listeners again, this time they put the team and the officials “On Blast”. There isn’t a whole lot to argue with in here, Lions fans again have some difficult pills to swallow. These calls give voice to Lions fans, and we will continue to allow our listeners to put *anyone* on blast every week. You call (929) 33-Lions, we’ll put it on the air. Go ahead and vent, it’s the only way to clear the air.

The Detroit Lions Podcast Looks Back

From there we go into game review mode. We dissect the Lions and Cowboys game and discuss what went wrong, and why.  While it was a loss, we played the Cowboys to within two points on their home field. It was a game we could (and should) have won, but let slip through our hands.

We also talk about the development of a few players. Specifically, Kenny Golladay and Jarrad Davis.  There’s a lot to feel good about here. While Davis has some issues, he’s shown a great deal of growth just since training camp, much less year over year. We predict where his ceiling might be before we get giddy about Kenny Golladay. The Riz laments our lack of usage of Kenny in the red zone – and yet again, he’s right.

After that, the Detroit Lions Podcast looks ahead to the upcoming game against the Green Bay Packers. We discuss the Lions current injury situation and what it will take for the Lions to beat the Pack.
