In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined Jeff Risdon to discuss the Lions incredible season opener against the Arizona Cardinals. This game had it all, the makings of a massive victory for the Lions, the possibility of a crushing loss, and it ended with the first Lions tie in 30 years. There was a whole lot right in this game and a couple of crucial failures. There is a lot to unpack from this performance, and you have the two best possible guys to help you put things in perspective.
The Detroit Lions Podcast Ties Things Up
There were three and a half quarters of strong play from the Lions team, but things began to fall apart when Darrell Bevell convinced Matt Patricia to call a time out at a crucial juncture in the game. Not calling the time out would have all but guaranteed a Lions victory. Matthew Stafford was visibly angry with the call yelling at his coaches to “trust me” when they nullified what would have been a first down and more for the team. The Detroit Lions Podcast spends a good deal of time breaking this down and discussing what Lions fans should take away from this incident.
