In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Mike the Ambling Bastard conduct a therapy session for Lions fans. This after the Detroit Lions lost to the Los Angeles Rams today. This is a different kind of loss. We all expected a loss to the Rams, but the Lions created hope where there shouldn’t have been any. That helped ensure the loss hurt even more. The boys take your calls and discuss the game and what’s next.
The first half of this one went off pretty much as expected, though the defense stepped up and kept the Lions in the game. In the end the defense was the shining star of this game. Quandre Diggs was again a spark plug for the defense, and stood out as a player who never gives up. The Detroit Lions and Matt Patricia put on a clinic on how to stop the Los Angeles Rams – one which will be analyzed by the Rams opponents for the remainder of the season.
Detroit Lions Podcast Is Done With Cooter
On the other hand, Jim Bob Cooter’s offense put on a clinic showing how to beat the Detroit Lions. If you like runs up the middle on first down, you’ll love this game. It wasn’t until a the third quarter when the Lions threw a touchdown pass to Taylor Decker that the Lions finally started switching things up. When the did, they found great success. As soon as they found success, they went back to Jim Bob’s predictable conservative ways and the offense again stalled. There is an obvious gap between Coach Patricia and Coach Cooter. This will unwind itself in the offseason as Jim Bob won’t likely remain a part of the Lions staff more than 3 days after the end of the season. Things are bad enough that we just might see him gone ahead of that.
So we take your calls and conduct an intensive post-game therapy session to help you cope with the upcoming work week and purge the bitter taste that comes from a loss like this. Definitely a needed prescription.
