NFL: Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Training camp was yesterday, so Jeremy had to bail to man the website and we were left to try to not step on the toes of any breaking news. Of course, nothing really happened so it’s not like that was an issue anyway.

But we took advantage of the situation to bring in another guest to keep talking about those Detroit Lions. This time it’s Brett Whitefield, analyst and writer from Pro Football Focus, to discuss the team and its prospects for the 2017 NFL season. We also got to touch on PFF itself, which has become a wild evolving entity.
