NFL: Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

The PODcast crew is back from their mini Thanksgiving hiatus. The gang spent the holidays stuffing their face with Thanksgiving pizza and homemade pie, waiting waaaay too long in Black Friday lines, and testing the limits of their old bodies in a game of two-hand touch.

But the holiday is behind us and now it’s time to face the cold reality. The Detroit Lions got swept by the Chicago Bears, and suddenly Lions fans are trying to serve Matthew Stafford’s head on platter.

The Lions put up a good fight on Thanksgiving, but a couple of big errors from their quarterback—and tight end—sunk the team to a point they likely won’t recover from this season.

So where to we go from here? That’s what the crew discusses on this week’s episodes:

This week on the PODcast:

  • Was this the Lions’ best game since the road game against the Miami Dolphins?
  • LeGarrette Blount certainly shut us the hell up. But is he capable of another performance like that or was that one last flash in the pan?
  • Was Jim Bob Cooter’s offensive game plan too conservative, or was that the reason the Lions had a legitimate chance to win the game?
  • Will this defense be able to stop a single quarterback this year?
  • Alright, let’s just talk about it. Matthew Stafford cost Detroit this game. What does this mean for his future with the Lions. Are people seriously thinking about trading him?
  • The gang talks about the final five games of the season. Should Kerryon Johnson come back? When are we going to see more Tracy Walker?
  • Mailbag talks about dream broadcasting crews, how close the Lions’ roster is to having its foundation, and bad sports talk radio.
