We just want your input so we can be sure that we are hitting all of the marks in bringing you the best show possible.

From there we kick off our show with some talk about the Matthew Stafford trade rumors surrounding the team. As usual, the Detroit Lions have some loony unsubstantiated rumors swirling around them. This must be a gas-lighting sociology experiment, right? Now the rumor focuses on a trade of Matthew Stafford to the Dallas Cowboys. It has all the right threads being pulled to make it interesting. Just the right amount of plausibility. Its bunk. We’ll give a few reasons why, but just know, its bunk.  There are a few more rumors being bandied about that we’ll break down with the Riz next week.  You’ll love/hate that episode of the Detroit Lions Podcast, we promise.

We also spend some time talking about the release of Glover Quinn. He’s a player that the team, fans, and the city as a whole will miss. A high quality player, and high character guy. Unfortunately, its one of the realities to contend with. Age takes a little away from us every year and unfortunately, one of our all-time favs in Glover is the latest victim.

Justin Rogers Joins The Detroit Lions Podcast

We spend over 3/4 of the next hour talking with Detroit Lions beat writer, Justin Rogers. In this in-depth look at free agency, we have a lot of fun (mostly at Case’s expense) talking about how the Lions might fill their biggest needs. We take a look at Trey Flowers, Darqueze Dennard, Morris Claiborne, and a whole lot more. To be fair the Detroit Lions Podcast takes Justin into the draft a little bit before he promises to come back and discuss that on a show in the near future.

We also talk trades, coaching moves, differences he’s seeing in the coaching staff, and what has happened in the press room as its changed from the “Dungeon of Doom” in Caldwell’s era to where it is today. Justin brings a lot of candor to this situation and helps us to understand it from both sides of the podium.
