Ep: 306 – Lions Look To Houston Texans – Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris is joined by Jeff Risdon to discuss the Lions Thanksgiving Day game against the Houston Texans. We also chat about the Carolina Panthers game as a turning point for Coach Matt Patricia and General Manager Bob Quinn.

The Houston Texans Present An Interesting Opponent

The Houston Texans are having a dumpster fire of a year in 2020, much like the Detroit Lions. There isn’t a whole lot to play for beyond pride and conversely a draft position. Neither team’s leadership is in a position to care too much about draft position, so a game for pride it is. We walk through strengths and weaknesses of the Houston Texans, the injury report, and our final game predictions. Our recommendation? Enjoy your Thanksgiving, and don’t let the Lions (or the Houston Texans) wreck it for you. Its great background noise, but time with your family will be much more productive.

Detroit Lions Podcast Looks At Bob Quinn’s Draft Results

We take a bit to look back at Bob Quinn’s draft results and what they might mean for his future with the team. We’ll rank hit vs. miss and give you the overall hit percentage for Quinn. Spoiler alert – the team plays like they draft. With that information we discuss whether Quinn, Patricia, or both will be looking for a new employer after this season. This becomes the baseline for some in-depth work we will be doing on the front office hiring process. We hope to arm you with the information you need before the process starts so you can watch along as things unfold and make good assessments in real time. We’ll have guests and content over the course of the next few shows to provide you a deep dive into what happens day-to-day in those jobs, what to expect during the interview, and a lot more. Really good content/information coming even though the football isn’t so hot.
