Ep: 311 – Lions Look To Green Bay Packers – Detroit Lions Podcast

In this live episode of The Detroit Lions Podcast, Chris and Case bring you the latest Detroit Lions news and information. We break down the win against the Chicago Bears, a look at a series of individual player performances, an analysis of the coaching change, a look ahead to the Green Bay Packers, and we take you ‘Around The Division’.

Detroit Lions Podcast Coaching Analysis

The Chicago Bears couldn’t hold the Lions down, and after some second half adjustments, the Lions defense finally showed up to a game. Coaches Darrell Bevell and Cory Undlin made some interesting changes to the scheme that gave the players more freedom to utilize their talents and to give fans an entertaining game against the Chicago Bears. It was finally a fun game to watch for Lions fans. The win certainly didn’t hurt but what a difference a coach makes to the enjoyment of a game. We discuss what else it might take for Interim Coach Darrell Bevell to hold down the head coaching position, and make a comparison to a much-loved Lions coach, Wayne Fontes. It was an entertaining game that one can’t help but think had a different outcome that it would have with the previous coaching regime.

Green Bay Packers Are In The Way

We look ahead to the Green Bay Packers knowing full well that they are one of the best teams in the NFC. There seems to be that little fact that the Lions have consistently played them very closely over the last few years, and the Lions players have a lot to play for. Getting a coach that makes things so much better and helps them have fun with the game they grew up with means a lot to a group of guys like this, and I’d be hard-pressed to say they don’t want to win for the guy that improved their lives so much. We don’t predict the Lions to win, but there’s that small glimmer of hope, and if they were to pull one out against the Green Bay Packers – just wow. After two division victories, Darrell Bevell could be on his way to his first permanent coaching position.
