Ep: 183 – Lions Look To The Carolina Panthers – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Jeff “The Riz” Risdon for a raucous breakdown of the past week in Detroit Lions news. We manage to find a way to have some fun with the current situation while taking a deeper look at what ails the team and what it might take to fix things.

We start the week out discussing the loss to the Bears, and basically what happened in that game. It was heartbreaking and we all expected more from the Lions this week. We also wonder what happened to the team that we saw beat the New England Patriots and Green Bay Packers this year. The team is a bit bi-polar and we try to figure out why.  We also give credit to some high character players the team has picked up in Damon “Snacks” Harrison and Devon Kennard. Great twitter follows that will help you feel a heck of a lot better about your team.

Detroit Lions Podcast Weighs In On Coaching

From there we dive into the Matt Patricia topic. It’s been a hot one as of late, and we talk about it from a number of different angles. Chris even manages to convince The Riz that we saw Jim Caldwell’s ceiling and that moving on was the right thing to do.  From there the conversation hits a number of points and arguments for where we are and where we should go from here.

Once we’re done with that one, we move on to another smoking hot subject these days… Matthew Stafford and whether he should remain a Detroit Lion.  We here on the Detroit Lions Podcast stand behind Stafford, but this isn’t just a rhetorical conversation. We bring facts, data, and our patented snark to the discussion. There are a number of points to address here, and we try to cover all of them.

After those conversations we take a look forward and determine how we might improve this year with what we have.  Chris walks down the list and Riz reacts to a number of opportunities for the team to improve.  The discuss the ins and outs of each approach and determine where things should go from here.

From there the boys of the Detroit Lions Podcast go into the upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers. We try to help predict what you might see and what to expect.  Also, the Riz takes us “Around The Division” for a look at what else is happening in the NFC North.
