NFL: Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

It’s the last PODcast of 2018, and we finally have a Victory Monday celebration to be had. Despite dropping three spots in the draft order, we’re in a pretty good mood after the Detroit Lions put a 31-0 hurting on the Green Bay Packers.

So this week’s PODcast is a bit of a celebration. A celebration because #WeOwnThePackers. A celebration of a throwback Matthew Stafford performance, and the team’s first shutout in two decades.

We’ll talk about the drawbacks, and what, if anything, Sunday’s game means for the future, but we also make sure to take in a moment to breathe in some fresh air for once. Also, TIME FOR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION!

This week on the PODcast:

  • Moderator Levi Blue joins the cast and helps explain why Sunday’s win over the Packers was worth dropping three spots in the NFL Draft.
  • Where was this offense all season?!?
  • Breaking down good performances from Zach Zenner (RB2?) and Brandon Powell, and what it means for their future.
  • RESOLUTION TIME! Jeremy thinks Matt Patricia needs to focus on his social life in 2019, while Ryan and Chris vow to be more positive in the new year.
  • GOODBYE, GLOVER QUIN? The PODcast crew takes a moment to appreciate everything Quin did for the Lions over the years, and ponders a future without him.
  • Mailbag talks favorite playoff teams, T.J. Lang returning(?), and Pat McAfee’s broadcasting debut.
