Ep: 181 – Lions Look To The Chicago Bears – 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 Minnesota Vikings, the new Friday show with the Riz, Jim Bob Cooter, Teez Tabor, Golden Tate, Matthew Stafford, the media and a whole lot more.

This week, we set “Put ’em on Blast” aside and go right into the loss to the Minnesota Vikings. This one really took the wind out of the sails of a lot of Detroit Lions fans, but we’re here to help put things into perspective without pouring Kool-Aid that is too sweet. Chris does something he tends not to do and has an “I told you so” moment when he discusses Teez Tabor’s game. The boys break down that breakdown and also talk about Matthew Stafford and what the hell happened there.  Can’t talk about that without bringing up Kelly Stafford’s Instagram interactions. On this topic, Chris finds a little nugget that no one else is talking about…

Detroit Lions Podcast Welcomes Zach Zenner Back

A Detroit Lions Podcast favorite, Zach Zenner, is back! We discuss his role now that Ameer Abdullah is gone. We also chat about the signing of Bruce Ellington and what he brings to the team.

From there we go into the Detroit Lions firing of special teams coach Joe Marciano. We breakdown why it happened and what it means for the Lions in a broader sense.

It feels like it’s time again to address the terrible state of the sports media in the city of Detroit. Chris and Case call it like they see it and take many of the members of the media to task. Of course, we also talk about one beat writer who does an excellent job.

From there the boys of the Detroit Lions Podcast go into the upcoming game against Chicago. We try to help predict what you might see and what to expect.  This is a critical game for our Lions, no doubt.
