VIDEO: Watch T.J. Lang’s hilarious talk show with Anthony Zettel

The Lions have a couple players with great personalities.

You may have heard me mention it before, but “Talkin’ with T.J.” is the best new web-series you probably aren’t watching. The premise of the show is T.J. Lang, the Detroit Lions’ offensive guard, interviews a fellow teammate while sitting on a random object—because Matthew Stafford is too cheap to buy him chairs.

Lang is a perfect fit as host of this show, because of his dry wit, his unapologetic candor and his excellent comedic timing.

In this week’s episode, perhaps the best of the series thus far, he interviews defensive end Anthony Zettel. The two talk about Zettel’s famous antics off the field, why he chose the number 69 and, as always, Lang throws some trivia questions his way at the end. Check out a clip below:

One the greatest running jokes in this series is Lang’s off-screen feud with veteran Haloti Ngata. This week’s episode has a great payoff relating to that storyline.
