Ep: 277 – Lions Camp ft. Jim Brandstatter – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Case and Jeff Risdon to discuss the first week of padded practice for the Lions 2020 Training Camp. Ahead of that we are joined by current University of Michigan radio voice and former voice of Detroit Lions Radio Network, Jim Brandstatter. We talk about the cancellation of the Big 10 season, and what it means for the players and fans. Jim tells us what a spring season would mean to players, fans, and the NFL Draft. A great conversation with half of the dynamic duo that was Dan Miller and Jim Brandstatter. He’s always worth a listen.

Detroit Lions Podcast – Talking NFL Football

After Jim’s guest appearance, we move on to break down everything that’s happened in Lions Training Camp so far. We start with Jeff Okudah’s performance, The amazing combination of Marvin Jones, Kenny Golladay, and Matthew Stafford. They are looking elite and possibly unstoppable. Definitely a group for Lions opponents to look out for this season. We also talk about the huge RB stable the Lions are currently fielding. Quick hint: Deandre Swift is just plain killing it. Kerryon Johnson is taking the majority of the reps, and also looking good, but we are likely positioned as good as we’ve been at this position since the Barry Sanders years.

We also discuss the great work that Jonah Jackson has been putting in. This is the kind of work that wins men starting spots on NFL rosters. The last of our camp coverage discusses injuries so far and what they might mean.  From there we take a look at the division and what it might mean for the Bob Quinn and Matt Patricia era. What will it take for them to stay? We answer that and more on this week’s show.
