Ep: 298 – Everson Griffen + Indianapolis Colts – Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case break the news moments after it occurs – The Detroit Lions have traded for Everson Griffen. Obviously, big news for the team, so we cover it twice. We also discuss the wide receiver corps and look at an advanced stats view of player performance. We also discuss the running back room, Lions defense, and remaining strength of schedule in the NFC North. We also take a brief look ahead to the Indianapolis Colts.

Detroit Lions Podcast Talks Everson Griffen Trade!

Huge news broke as we were going live with today’s show. The Detroit Lions have traded a conditional sixth round pick to the Dallas Cowboys, and have picked up Everson Griffen in return. For a song and a tad over $3 million the Detroit Lions have significantly upgraded their pass rush with Everson Griffen, who is certain to make the players around him better. We’ll talk about how he helps the team and when we will finally see him. The best news? We’ve got him twice against a team that tossed him to the trash heap. That should be fun.

Indianapolis Colts Get Shorter Time

With the breaking Everson Griffen news, we don’t get to give the full treatment to the Indianapolis Colts game. We do discuss what to look for, and how the Lions defense should attack Indianapolis Colts quarterback, Phillip Rivers. A key match-up we discuss is the Lions defensive front against the Indianapolis Colts offensive line. That is going to be a battle all day, the Colts o-line is one of the best, and will likely signal which team is having the most success. A win against the Indianapolis Colts would do a lot for the Lions confidence and help atone for early season difficulties.
