Detroit Lions Podcast – Still Reporting On The Ford Family
While we’re sad to see Martha Ford leaving her post as Principal Owner of the Detroit Lions, we are at the same time happy to see Sheila Ford Hamp step up to the position she’s been transitioning into for a while. She has a lot to offer the team and has been quite involved (by all reports) for a while now. We talk about Martha’s time as owner and give her high marks for what she has done to transform the team and its identity. Her time at the helm will be remembered well.
We discuss where we would have liked to see Ford Hamp take action upon taking the reins and what she could do in the near future to seal her position and put her stamp on the team. In the end we discuss the effect of the move and share our thoughts on some of the fan feedback that’s been posted in various forums.
Locking Down Our Left Guard
Jonah Jackson has finally signed his contract and is officially a Detroit Lions player. This is a great pick that will have an impact, so it’s good to lock him down and have the paperwork done. Also, we discuss Training Camp, what it could look like, what to expect, and who is making the decisions.
