Ep: 203 – Detroit Lions Patricia Bites – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case continue to their drive to $10K for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We also have Matt Patricia for breakfast, Discuss the Lions top needs, bring in the Riz to discuss the first three rounds of the draft, and take you ‘Around The Division’ with an advance look at new music from the soon to drop I Prevail album which comes out March 29th!

Detroit Lions Podcast Owns It

We begin the show with Chris eating crow. He blew it on Malcolm Brown and takes full ownership, well… He takes you all down with him.  Then the conversation begins with new Lions pickup Tommy Lee Lewis and what happened as a result of last week’s conversation and Reddit user/Twitter friend Honolulu Blue Balls response.

From there we delve into Matt Patricia’s interview at the Owners’ Meeting breakfast today. He spent just about an hour after breakfast talking to reporters and answering everything they threw his way. There were even jokes at Kyle Meinke and Michael Rothstein’s expense. We’re going to have to check in with Justin Rogers on the effect of these to get the appropriate color commentary. We bring you the key clips from the interview and react/respond with our take on the insights that Coach Patricia provides. There is a ton to unpack, and we may carry our conversation into next week on this as we think more about it.

Of course we discuss our drive to 10K for St. Jude. Please be sure to tell anyone you know about this effort and take part if you haven’t. Seriously, do everything you can to amplify the sound on this. We need everyone to know and everyone we can find to take part.

Bring On The Riz

From there we get Jeff Risdon on the phone. The Riz is his inimitable self and kills it as usual. We have a hilarious and enjoyable conversation that covers the Lions key needs ahead of the draft, what the Lions will be looking at during the draft (Chris declares rounds 2 and three complete pants off moments), and he helps take us ‘Around The Division’ where we share a new intro from the soon to be released Trauma album from I Prevail. Chris is massively in love with the song used here, “Rise Above It”. This isn’t a sponsorship, these are friends. We genuinely love this band, and Trauma is over-the-top amazing.
