[423] Lions Ready For 2022 Season – Detroit Lions Podcast

This week Chris and Jeff get together to discuss the latest from the Detroit Lions ahead of the start of the 2022 NFL season and the final episode of Hard Knocks. The Lions ended the series in a grand fashion, and we got to see a whole lot more of what makes this team tick. It obviously bodes well for the locker room, but will it translate to performance on the football field?

Detroit Lions Podcast Gears Up For 2022 NFL Season

With the preseason wrapped, the Lions begin their preparation for their matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles today. All the questions that remain will be answered in the coming weeks, and we’ll start to get a sense of the fruits of the labor invested by the front office in building and coaching this team. Detroit Lions fans are in a hopeful place as they set off on what might be their most difficult matchup of the season, but we also know the coaching staff has had this game circled on the calendar for a long time. Will the team’s preparation be enough? We’ll take a look and discuss what we see.

There are a few Detroit Lions injuries to discuss, the biggest one (both in size and impact) is Halapoulivaati Vaitai. His back issues have the team working on their back up plan out of the gate. What does this mean for the Lions in week 1 as well as going forward? We got you covered on that one. There’s also questions and mystery surrounding who will be calling plays for the Detroit Lions offense, and a former player joining the ranks of the coaching staff immediately after being cut. There’s a lot to talk about this week as the Detroit Lions prepare to face the Philadelphia Eagles. Buckle up, it’s going to be a big show!

Speaking of “buckle up”, make sure to head over to our project with Detroit Lions shutdown cornerback Jerry Jacobs to help charities in Detroit. Its a great opportunity to get some great gear and make a difference in the city we all love.

About the Author

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.
