Ep: 220 – Lions Picking Up Steam – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case break down the latest Detroit Lions news. We recap the game against the Houston Texans, cover the pickup/drop of a few wide receivers (and one who is still a possibility), discuss Martha Ford and her upcoming TV appearance, and go in on Brian Baldinger and his cringy “drunk uncle” rant.

Detroit Lions Podcast Game Review

We kick things off by discussing the second game of the Detroit Lions preseason, this one against the Houston Texans. David Fales, Jalen Reeves-Maybin, Miles Killebrew and Will Harris all earned high marks. We also go into who didn’t show as well and cover one player that is making an interesting case for himself.

Then we hit the waiver wire and discuss who the Lions have picked up, put down and are thinking about.  It’s interesting to see who they are looking at in an attempt to bolster their depth at wide receiver. There’s definitely work to be done at the position, expect more to come.

Next the Detroit Lions Podcast takes a look at Martha Ford’s upcoming special, “A Lifetime of Sundays”. The special profiles four iconic female NFL owners, including Martha Ford. Mrs. Ford was contacted ahead of the premiere and shared some of her hopes for the team. Definitely worth a watch on August 25th at 1:00 ET on ESPN. It airs again on September 1st at 3:30 ET on ABC.

Breaking Down Baldinger’s Rant

Finally, the Detroit Lions Podcast discusses an odd rant from Brian Baldinger. Case termed it best as a “drunk uncle” type rant. Not something we would typically expect from Baldy, but definitely something Lions fans weren’t happy with. We discuss where it might have come from.
