Ep: 225 – Lions Undefeated After Two – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case bring you the latest Lions news after the nerve wracking win over the Chargers. Very few thought that this team would be undefeated after two games this season, and we tell you why the trend could continue. We take a look at the Lions Defense, Special Teams, the offense (and the offensive line in particular). We discuss some late breaking roster changes, take a look ahead at the Eagles, and go Around the Division.

Detroit Lions Podcast Victory Party!

First things first, we discuss the Lions victory against the Los Angeles Chargers. It was a messy game, but there is a lot of good to take away from it. Most importantly, the Detroit Lions came away victorious and surprised a lot of fans who were still stunned from the previous week’s tie. We also admit our surprise at Jamal Agnew remaining on the team at this point. Something more than Amendola taking reps has to change, and we expect to see some more J.D. McKissic on the field.

When news breaks, we cover it. We react to the CJ Anderson cut and Paul Perkins pickup as well as what it might mean to the team. There are a few nice little insider nuggets in this conversation too…

From there the Detroit Lions Podcast discusses Matthew Stafford and his interceptions in the last game. There have been a number of discussions about them and we want to be sure to bring some context and sanity to the discussion. This leads us to a discussion about the offensive scheme and an early report card on Darrell Bevell with a comparison to Jim Bob Cooter’s portfolio of work.

We take a moment to discuss the tight end situation in Detroit.  This is a story of riches and not a cautionary tale. It’s so nice to finally see great tight ends in Detroit again.

Comparing NFC North Quarterbacks And Including Eli Manning

Next the Detroit Lions Podcast goes over the current rankings of the NFC North quarterbacks with the New York Giants backup quarterback included.

We take a few moments to delve into the predictions for the upcoming Eagles game.  For the second week in a row, it may be a heck of a lot more winnable than we thought even 3 weeks ago.

We also take you around the division to look at our competition and to ascertain where we might stand after the second week of football.
