Ep: 244 – Lions Look to The Chicago Bears – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case are back together again to take a heartfelt look at the situation in Allen Park and try to help folks come to an understanding of what exactly we are looking at. There has been a convergence of many things to hit the team this year. We’re here to try and help Detroit Lions fans make sense of it all. We also review the Redskins game and what we can learn from that. From there, we revisit the Matthew Stafford situation and think about what the rest of the year holds for him. From there, we spend some time discussing what the rest of the year might look like for this team. Additionally, we try to help set expectations and give you some things to look for.  Lastly, we look ahead to the game against Chicago in the annual Thanksgiving game.

Detroit Lions Podcast Talks Chicago Bears

Before we get into the Bears, we have to take a brief stop on the Washington Redskins express. What a gut punch. A completely unexpected outcome presented itself to a Lions fan base that were looking for something, anything, to hang their hat on.  It didn’t come in Washington at the Redskins expense. Now the Lions face a short week ahead of the Thanksgiving Day game against the Chicago Bears. The Detroit Lions Podcast takes some time to talk about where the team, the fans, and the coaching staff are today. We take a look at who else has been in similar circumstances, and we lament the loss of another year of possibility for our favorite football team.  Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn focus heavily in this conversation, and rightfully so. Do they deserve all that they are getting right now? Not all of it. We’ll help sort wheat and chaff here.

We also spend some time looking at what to look for from the team for the remainder of the year. There is a lot still to do, even if a playoff run isn’t part of that plan. It has nothing to do with playing for “pride” either.

Finally we look ahead to the game against the Chicago Bears. The key thing is not to take the game too seriously this year. Don’t let the game ruin your Thanksgiving. Instead, have a robust discussion about politics with your uncle Eddie. That way you can still go home with the traditional heartburn, but it won’t be caused by your favorite football team this time!
