NFL: Seattle Seahawks at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

That was a fun week, wasn’t it?

The Detroit Lions picked up a huge win on the road against the Miami Dolphins. They racked up the most rushing yards they’ve had in 20 years. And a couple days later, they traded for exactly the kind of player they needed for just a fifth-round pick. The optimism cup overfloweth and dreams of division crowns and playoff wins danced in our heads.

Then the entire franchise was able to flush those dreams in a matter of three hours in front of their loyal, overexcited fans. It was a wild few days of partying, but the hangover always hits the hardest after the best nights.

Of course, this is all a little melodramatic for a simple 14-point loss to a team that is probably a little better than most were giving them credit for, but there are certainly reasons to come down from last week’s artificial expectations, and that’s what we’ll be talking about on this week’s PODcast.

But we want your voices to be heard, too. In the comment section below, or using the hashtag #AskPOD on Twitter, send us your questions about this Lions team, or anything else on your mind. Halloween questions? Let’s get it. Black Friday preview? Sure, why not? We’ve got a whole bunch of answers waiting for your tender ear.
