Ep: 355 – Lions Show Big Heart – Detroit Lions Podcast

Welcome to the Detroit Lions Podcast Post Game Show! The Detroit Lions finished their first game of the season with a notch in the loss column, but it was so much more than that. Looking at the standings table doesn’t tell the story either. The entire division lost and the Lions are tied for first after week one.

Detroit Lions Podcast Sees Potential

The game against the San Francisco 49ers left Detroit Lions fans with a lot of hope, even in the face of that loss. The team showed more heart than we’ve seen from them in over three years. Any other Lions team would have given up before the second half even started. This team wouldn’t let the 49ers hang the big L on them and rallied back from a 38-10 deficit to take the outcome of the game down to their last possession. This showed the maturity of a team much older and more experienced. This gave the players and coaches a lot to build on. I would categorize this as one of the most fun losses this team has ever had.

Conversely, probably the biggest blow to the Lions hopes this season was the loss of Jeff Okudah to a ruptured Achilles in the opening game against the San Francisco 49ers. The second year player was the clear number one cornerback for the Lions and the team has its second week against two of the best in the league in the Green Bay Packers Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams. Okudah will be impossible to replace, even with a ‘next man up’ mentality, but this definitely lines up with the Detroit Lions youth movement and their efforts to build, grow, and evaluate talent for next year and going forward.

We will also cover, Josh Gordon rumors, Penei Sewell’s performance and potential future at left tackle, as well as Jared Goff’s performance and what we can expect from him and the team going forward.
