Ep: 353 – Opening Day NFL 2021 Season – Detroit Lions Podcast

Today is the day, we kick off the 2021 NFL season with the Dallas Cowboys and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 8:20pm ET tonight. After a strong camp and an exciting off-season it felt like we were ready to carry a healthy team onto the field on Sunday. What could possibly go wrong?

Detroit Lions Podcast Breaking News

Couple of quickies – Taylor Decker missed practice today with a finger injury, and D’Andre Swift has rumors swirling about a pretty serious crime. Other than that everything is going great, thank you for asking. Good time to make one of those Resurrection cocktails Chris was talking about…

We’re also going to go over 6 key benchmarks for the Lions 2021 season – ones that will indicate whether we are seeing a successful campaign, or (gulp) something else. We’ll also discuss Jared Goff’s chat about the Lions game plan against the San Francisco 49ers. Lastly, we’ve turned on YouTube Memberships. Become a channel member and get access to some really cool stuff! We’ll have that and a whole lot more.

Don’t forget, Friday marks the day that WWJ-Radio airtime powerhouse, Tony Ortiz returns to the show with Chris for our weekly Game Preview show. If you remember from last year, it was a riot. Great stuff, and some fun insider stories.

About the Author

Chris
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.
