Ep: 178 – Lions Look To The Vikings – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case get together to talk about the Lions loss to the Seattle Seahawks, a new show that’s kicking off, Kerryon Johnson, Jim Bob Cooter, and of course, Golden Tate.

This week, we start with some good “Put ’em on Blast” calls from a few of our listeners. Good content and a few hot takes in there that we discuss during the show. From there we go back and look at what we saw in the game against Seattle.  Case doesn’t think the team played as bad as many do, while Chris tries to help people understand that the fact that the other teams in the division doing so poorly this week means the Lions squandered a real opportunity. It was a week in which we didn’t capitalize in a division that no one seems to be able to own as their own.

The Detroit Lions Podcast Talks Golden Tate

The boys then break into the Golden Tate trade situation. There are a lot of opinions here and there are a number of ways to analyze it. Chris decides that it comes down to a situation where you can fall on either side of the conversation depending on if you are thinking with your heart or your logical mind. Case makes a number of great points (as he is known to do), in the end the team moves onward and hopefully forward.

From there the Detroit Lions Podcast goes into Jim Bob Cooter – we take a look at his performance, what it means for his future with the team, and we give him a grade. No need to hide behind rhetoric – we etch our opinions in stone and discuss Jim bob’s future with the team.

We also spend some time talking about Kerryon Johnson and one of his key strengths over the Lions committee of backs, including LeGarrette Blount.

From there we go “Around The Division” and let you know what’s happening in the NFC North and what it means to the Lions.
