Ep: 213 – Lions On Stafford’s Back – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case kick off what is known as the NFL’s “dead season” with some key news about the team, the podcast and more. We kick off with the final data from our St. Jude fundraising effort. We discuss the recently breaking news about Matthew Stafford‘s back – and this time it isn’t just from carrying the team. We set the record straight on the Training Camp Party, talk power rankings, and celebrate the Detroit Lions Podcast anniversary. Who said it’s the “dead season”?

Detroit Lions Podcast Scores For St. Jude

First off, we need to thank each and every one of you who took part in our St. Jude fundraising drive. What an amazing effort you all put forth. We raised a total of $7,641.38 to help sick kids though the Detroit Lions Podcast Patreon donations, PayPal donations, direct donations to St. Jude, and through our auction. We owe a huge debt of gratitude to I Prevail, Dean Blandino, and the Detroit Lions organization for donating such amazing items to the auction.

Then we talk about Matthew Stafford and his sore back. For the first time he’s suffering not from carrying the team, but from real injuries sustained during the season. Stafford suffered from micro-fractures in his back during the season and evidently continued to play even with the injuries. In response, Chris goes on a jag about how Stafford checks all the boxes when it comes to being an amazing man. There may be a real love affair budding in the Detroit Lions Podcast studios, even bigger than the original love for Zach Zenner. We’ll have to see how this competition plays out…
