NFL: Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Tuesday was an eventful day for the Detroit Lions and their fans, and not exactly in the good way. Things kicked off around 4 p.m. ET when head coach Matt Patricia announced that running back Kerryon Johnson had a procedure Tuesday morning and was being placed on injured reserve—effectively ending his season, even though there’s a chance he still plays in a game or two to end the season.

A mere 30 minutes later, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero broke shocking news that Quandre Diggs, the emotional heart of Detroit’s secondary, had been shipped to Seattle for a 2020 lottery ticket.

The reactions were mixed. As in, people couldn’t decide whether to be depressed, angry, melancholy or just numb. It wasn’t a great day for Lions fans, but in times of need the PODcast is here to lend a shoulder for you to lean and even shed a tear upon.

An emergency session was called on Tuesday night to make sense of everything, let off some serious steam and try to explain where the Lions go from here.
