Ep: 283 – Lions To The Green Bay Packers – Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Case for our weekly podcast. It’s been a tough start to the week after the Chicago Bears game, and Lions fans already want blood. We’ve done our re-watch, we’ve got the stats, and we talk about what went wrong, where this team is, and what to expect next week against the Green Bay Packers.

Detroit Lions Podcast say R-E-L-A-X

It’s not time to burn down the house. For perspective, 2020 has been a whirlwind of bad news, let’s all be thankful that we at least have football at this point. That being said, the Lions lost a close one in their first game against the Chicago Bears at Ford Field. This doesn’t foment a lot of hope for their chances against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau field. Reacting too harshly or too excitedly about the results of the first game of an NFL season is never good for one’s psychological health. Enjoy that we have football and if the team does poorly that the Coach will be gone. Or, conversely, enjoy the bounce-back that gets this team a playoff spot. Either way, enjoy the game of football. A lot of work went into making sure we could have it, and burning it (or each other) down with vitriol just isn’t worth it, nor is it healthy.

There’s a lot of great stuff in this show, we take your calls, both live and on the Lions Line, we talk about Patricia’s tenure, and the starts and realities from Sunday’s Chicago Bears game. We quickly walk across the league, and then preview the Green Bay Packers game for listeners.

Oh yeah, Clete Blakeman. We talk about him – we’ll cover him and how he got this gig much more in depth during the preview show on Friday.

Help Us Raise Money For St. Jude

We announce our plans around our upcoming (2nd annual) fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Hospital – we raised almost $7,500 last time, this time our goal is much, much higher. We’ve got a plan to make it happen, and will be bringing out the big guns. Let’s help make it a great “Christmas For The Kids”, together, starting on November 6.  More details will be forthcoming as we get closer.

Chris is the founder of everything you see here.

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.
