Ep: 295 – Lions On To The Atlanta Falcons – The Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case take a look at the Lions season so far, breakdown player performances and take a look ahead to the game against the Atlanta Falcons. As a team who played unexpectedly well last week, the Atlanta Falcons are looking to build on their success after firing coach Dan Quinn and GM Thomas Dimitroff following their 0-5 start.

Atlanta Falcons Aren’t A Good Team!

The situation with the Atlanta Falcons wasn’t a case of a team giving up on their coach and management, it was more a “we need to change things up because they just aren’t working any more.” The Atlanta Falcons reacted to the news/situation as though it was a wake up call. We don’t expect them to suddenly rise to greatness, but there are some good players on that team who the Lions need to account for. We discuss that, and what to expect.

Detroit Lions Podcast Sees An Easier Road Ahead For The Team

We discuss the improvement of Matthew Stafford, the emergence of D’Andre Swift, Jarrad Davis and his new found success, and the emergence of a defensive pass rush. All things we needed to see from the Lions, and that we absolutely need to continue against the Atlanta Falcons. We cover all of that including the excellent run blocking and terrible rush ranking paradox facing the team.

Help Us Raise Money For St. Jude – Christmas For The Kids

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.
