Ep: 273 – Lighting Off Lions Camp – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is rejoined by Case for what looks to be our last show before the start of Lions Training Camp. Case finally shook himself free of the shackles of his job and was able to do some podcasting. Always great to have him and his insights.

Detroit Lions Podcast Football News

We cover a lot of ground in almost an hour and a half of podcasting today. First we take a look at some insider info on college football after Chris was able to glean some info from his Georgia Tech player pal. Small team practices started this week, so keep your eyes open. The ACC should be announcing their plans very shortly, we’ll let you know when we do.

Chris decided to give Dean Blandino an unexpected call to get his thoughts on what the refs might look like since there is no preseason. He discussed it in depth on his great podcast, “Good Calls With Dean Blandino”. No matter your thoughts on Dean, he does a great show. Either way, he shares some excellent insight on his thoughts on how the refs might have early trouble without the ability to have a preseason this year. Good stuff. Always fun to give someone a surprise call on the show.

We also discuss the conversation that has been happening around a rating that put Bob Quinn at the bottom of the NFL GM barrel. We tend to disagree, but history is written by the victors, so the story has yet to be fully told. Also, Eric Ebron proves that not only can’t catch, but he can’t math either. We have fun at his expense (again) and then ask for callers to share their least favorite Lions of all time. That wound up being pretty fun. By the way, click here for all you’ll ever need when responding to Ebron on Twitter.

We also get into an excellent piece that Chris Burke found a great piece by Warren Sharp of Sharp Football discussing a tendency of the Detroit Lions offense in 2019. One that should have been adjusted for, yet wasn’t for 9 games straight. It may have had a hand in the Lions difficulties in finishing out games.  We discuss, you get to determine how you feel.
