Ep: 192 – Lions Look To The Minnesota Vikings – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by a fan favorite, Jeff Risdon, as a result of Case being ill. We cover a number of topics this week including the Bills game, Lions past talent finding success elsewhere, we provide a Detroit Lions Podcast Fantasy Football League update, talk draft, Pro Bowl, and a whole lot more There’s a ton to cover and we dive right in.

Detroit Lions Podcast Breaks It Down

This week we begin by reviewing the Lions loss to the Buffalo Bills. There’s the Matt Prater topic to cover, how the defense is performing (kudos to Snacks, A’Shawn Robinson, Romeo Okwara, Jarrad Davis, Darius Slay, and Devon Kennard) We discuss the life and times of Jim Bob Cooter and where talent that used to play for him on the Lions has landed and how they are performing today. It leads to an interesting discussion about the team and player development.

Then we celebrate the top teams in the Detroit Lions Podcast Fantasy Football League. There are four leagues, in which four teams are vying for the top three positions. It just so happens that one of Chris’s team is one of them – in the Champions League. His story of just how he landed on his players and how his team has performed just might shock you… A total knucklehead.

From there we move on to the 2019 NFL Draft. Jeff Risdon weighs in on where he thinks the Detroit Lions will be drafting and makes his pick for the Lions in the first round. Its early days and there is still a bunch of data to mine on this, but as of today Jeff has his #1 identified.  We discuss some of the research opportunities that happen between now and the draft such as the Shrine Game, Senior Bowl, Combine, and a whole lot more. Chris will be attending all of these with Jeff to ensure we have the best coverage and analysis on the Detroit Lions draft for your consumption.  We’re going all in on the draft this year.

A Lot More To Discuss

There’s so much more. We talk about who made the Pro Bowl from the Lions and who was snubbed. Chris comes up with an alternative to that crappy game that might make football exciting that weekend while still recognizing NFL players appropriately.  We also cover Titus Young’s release from prison, look ahead to the game against the Minnesota Vikings, and Chris and Jeff Risdon tag team the ‘Around The Division’ segment.

Lastly, hand around until the very end of the show for some hilarious audio from Kelly Stafford. Great stuff.
