NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Detroit Lions Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

The full PODcast crew is back and ready to take on a week that actually had some news for the Detroit Lions. Jim Brandstatter is out as the Lions radio color commentator. Lomas Brown is in. Ezekiel Ansah did not reach a long-term agreement with the Lions, and it didn’t appear the two sides were ever even close.

Jeremy, Chris and Ryan take on those stories this week, and continue the LISTCAST and Way Back Machine series. This week, the gang counts down their top 10 tight ends and revisits the ugly Lions-Browns games from last year.
