Ep: 285 – Lions & Green Bay Packers Post Game – Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by the post-game brain known as Sandman. They discuss the Lions loss to the Green Bay Packers. It’s a big therapy week, and thus a pretty long show. If you need to find a way to get over the loss and have a couple of laughs along the way, we’ve got the salve you need.

Green Bay Packers Sit Atop The Division

No one thought it would be the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears at the top of the division with the Minnesota Vikings and Lions sitting winless after two game. The Packers are showing strong early this year, and the struggling Lions were an early casualty. The Lions have an extremely difficult start to the season and for all intents and purposes it looks like the team will be winless going into the bye week. Should we fire coach Matt Patricia now? Chris still says, “not yet”. Sandman tends to agree. Everyone agrees it’s a terrible place for the team and fans to be only two games into the season.

Detroit Lions Podcast Let’s You Know When

We talk about timing on the coach firing that seems inevitable at this point. While coach Matt Patricia still has a lot of season to work with before it can be determined if the Lions will be playing “meaningful games in December”, the fuse is definitely getting shorter. Chris will tell you when he think pulling the trigger makes the most sense, not just for immediate satisfaction, but for the long term health of the team. The boys also discuss their thinking on Bob Quinn‘s future with the organization.

In there we also discuss the game and the performance of players both for the Lions and Green Bay Packers (good and bad). Lastly, we take a ton of calls throughout the show – I have to say that by the end of the show we all agreed that the therapy worked and we were ready to move on.

Help Us Raise Money For St. Jude

We discuss 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.
