Ep: 378 – Lions Ready To Gobble Bears – Detroit Lions Podcast

The Detroit Lions continue to look for that elusive first win of the 2021 NFL season. The first for Dan Campbell as the Lions coach, the first in the NFL for a number of young players, and the first indication that this team is turning things around. The Thanksgiving game against the Chicago Bears might be just the ticket the Lions need.

Detroit Lions Podcast Fires Matt Nagy

In a unique move, it appears as though the team has informed Matt Nagy that he will no longer be coaching the Chicago Bears after the Thanksgiving game at Ford Field. While Lions fans were hoping that they could help the Bears hang on to Nagy for another year as their head coach, it’s gotten to the point that potentially winning against the Lions isn’t enough to help a head coach keep his job in the NFL.

There is a lot of motivation for both teams to win this game – for the Lions, finally getting that first win and doing so on the national stage would make this a statement game about a turnaround that is officially underway for the franchise. For the Bears, an opportunity to send off the coach who believed with them and put them on this team together. One thing for sure, Thursday’s game is destined to be one to remember. One that could be marked as the point where fortunes turned for a troubled NFL franchise.

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.
