Ep. 174: Shrine Bowl Shining
5 days ago
We’re another week removed from the last Detroit Lions game, and it feels like its been months. The thirst for football is real. So is the struggle. And whatever else the kids are saying .
And just like a saying from yesteryear, Detroit Lions Radio believes the show must go on. Luckily, we were able to catch up with Jeff Risdon, who is at the Shrine Bowl.
Jeff and Brandon talked about the Lions staffers he’s been able to spot around practice, including one Bob Quinn. Who was Detroit’s general manager watching? Can you interpret how the team’s free agency approach will shake out from the information? Should you?
Probably not, but you will learn something new. A ton of players from Michigan are making noise down in St. Petersburg, with some familiar names creating new reputations (We see you De’Veon Smith). Plus, Jeff gives you his favorite pick of the litter to end up in Honolulu blue.
Then the guys shift gears to talk about what players may be leaving the Lions. Nick and Brandon broke down which free agents could and/or should be staying, and who will be sent packing. Spoiler alert: This team has a few places it could improve. Regardless of recent production, Detroit has to put loyalty aside.
Lastly, the guys also dug into the latest couching rumors. While Quinn has already declared that Jim Caldwell will be in charge in 2017, the head coach will receive no guarantees past next season. And there’s a certain New England Patriots assistant who has been linked to the Lions for 2018.
As always, we appreciate you folks listening. We’ll keep bringing a show every week through the offseason so long as you keep tuning in!
