Detroit Lions Podcast Covers The Latest

First on the docket, we compare some of the numbers for Matthew Stafford and Jared Goff and recognize that there is a very interesting contrast that falls in Goff’s favor. We’ll discuss why that discrepancy exists and what it might mean for the Lions in 2021 – spoiler alert: the net/net on this is good for the Lions overall.

We’ll also cover the NFL preseason schedule and what it means for the team, as well as Michael Brockers comments about what he’s heard about the different style of coaching that’s come in with this regime.

Detroit Lions UDFA Cornerback Jerry Jacobs Interview

Then, the big stuff hits. We interview Lions UDFA Cornerback Jerry Jacobs. Jacobs has an amazing story. For the entirety of his life he’s climbed out of adversity and lifted himself through exceptional performance to make his way to the NFL. Just being in the NFL is a statement to his ability, now he’ talk about how he got here, what he’s doing to make sure he stays, and what to expect from him and the Lions this year. Jacobs story will be one we cover throughout the year, no matter where he lands. He will be joining us regularly through the year to highlight what life is like for a player considered to be “on the bubble” in the NFL and bring focus to so many stories that go untold. We are absolutely stoked to bring this to you and are certain you will be rooting for Jacobs after you hear his story.

Chris is the founder of everything you see here. A former radio presenter and Detroit native, he now resides in sunny California – and like so many of us, he found himself marooned on an island devoid of other Lions fans. After spending a few years in the Detroit Lions Reddit community he decided to start the Detroit Lions Podcast. Its become the #1 Detroit Lions podcast, and regularly ranks with the top podcasts in Detroit. With a mixture of pre-recorded shows, live & recorded phone-ins, and live post-game broadcasts - this is his slice of Honolulu Blue heaven.
