Ep: 280 – Lions Pick Their 53 – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case discuss the latest news as the Lions cut down to their 53 man roster. There were a few surprises that we discuss, a couple that we expected on the practice squad, and a loss we totally didn’t expect. We also discuss the home field advantage during Covid, jersey numbers, season predictions, Around The Division, and a whole lot more. We’ve got a big week of information coming your way with our game preview on Friday with Jeff Risdon and Tony Ortiz from 97.1, as well as our first live post game show right after Sunday’s game with Sandman and Case.

Detroit Lions Podcast Covers The 53 Man Roster

Out of the chute we get into the Lions naming their 53 man roster. Of course the signing of Adrian Peterson (with all the AD vs. AP talk we just landed at ADP – he’s money after all, right?). We also cover the practice squad decisions, including the number of quarterbacks being carried on the roster (Case gets a chance to hold that over some folks’ head) while Chris crashes and burns on his Jason Huntley prediction. That one hurt. Oday Aboushi almost added to Chris’s embarrassment, but luckily Bob Quinn decided to bring him back onto the roster saving Chris from a double miss from the last show.

Our mini preview of the Lions Bears makes some very important points about just how important this game is to GM Bob Quinn and Coach Matt Patricia. It seems silly that the first game of the year, one in which literally anything is possible, in a Covid year could be make or break, but Chris truly believes that it really is. This is just where the Detroit Lions are.

We also take you on a quick jaunt Around The Division. Don’t miss this episode if you want to be ready for the Detroit Lions 2020 season. Friday’s game preview will be a must-watch, and Sunday’s post game show will be worth every second you spend. It’s a busy week for us, and great information for you – let’s hook up!

After spending a few years in the Detroit Lions Reddit community he decided to start the Detroit Lions Podcast. Its become the #1 Detroit Lions podcast, and regularly ranks with the top podcasts in Detroit. With a mixture of pre-recorded shows, live & recorded phone-ins, and live post-game broadcasts - this is his slice of Honolulu Blue heaven.
