Ask POD: We have Detroit Lions football to talk about!

Breaking down the Lions’ preseason opener with a little help from our friends.

After another long offseason, we finally got a look at the 2018 Detroit Lions under new head coach Matt Patricia in Oakland. We stayed up way past our bedtime, just to see the Lions... well, let’s be honest, underwhelm.

There were some very encouraging moments, and there were some familiar mistakes. Some players that stuck out as potential key contributors this season, and some guys who clearly need to shake off some rust if they’re going to be ready for the regular season debut.

And after 24 hours to digest it all, the PODcast crew is ready to break down everything we saw Friday night/Saturday morning. Standouts, disappointments, things we learned—all of it. We’re so desperate to talk about anything resembling football that we’re going to pick the meat off of every inch of this bone, even if it’s mostly a “meaningless” game.

But even we have our limits, and we’re going to need your help to round out this PODcast. In the comment section below, send us your questions about anything you’d like us to talk about. Or if you’d like, you can send your queries via the Twitterverse using the hashtag #AskPOD.
