NFL: Detroit Lions-Training Camp Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

There is Detroit Lions football this week, and the PODcast can’t wait for Friday. So to help feed our addiction, we spent all of Monday night talking about everything leading up to the Lions’ preseason opener. Training camp, depth chart, Ezekiel Ansah’s return, and joint practices. It’s all there for you to consume while we wait for the main meal coming on Friday night.

But we couldn’t do it alone. One of our new Pride of Detroit family members, Hamza Baccouche, joined the crew to introduce himself to the crowd and offer his insight to the Lions and their 2018 season!
