PODcast: Thanksgiving-ganza Listcast, Vikings preview, bold predictions

We packed this one with stuffing and tons of content. Come in and listen to the staff talk Lions football.

It’s always a fun time leading up to Thanksgiving: with travel and football and all the rest. There’s food all over the place and there is absolutely nothing that happened this year that will turn your extended family utterly dysfunctional around a dead bird.

With all that in mind, we busted out the Listcast for this one, an homage to the fine days of our early PODcast roots. The question of side dishes is very crucial to understanding Thanksgiving, much like how the PODcast is crucial to understanding Lions football.

We also talk about the Jaguars game and whether or not you can count that as a “bad” win for various notions of sloppy play, and we examine the Jaguars game that just unfolded before your eyes on Sunday.

Also, with Jeremy Reisman traveling, we pulled out the big guns: it’s the long-anticipated return of Kyle Yost, the bearer of good takes (except for one). You don’t want to miss it.

  • Rage Corner comes back to talk about placards and why you shouldn’t be holding these stupid things up.
