- However, it wasn’t all positives coming from “Radio Row” at the Super Bowl. Terry Bradshaw said some very critical things of Lions tight end Eric Ebron:

- Lions media also got a chance to catch up with former head official Mike Pereira to ask him about the ongoing conspiracy theory surrounding the Lions:
Mike Pereira to fans - Lions fans - who think officials are out to get him: "Get in line"— Dave Birkett (@davebirkett) January 31, 2017
To be fair, Pereira was a bit sympathetic to the plight of the Lions fan:
