Minnesota went exactly as expected at this point. The record breaks and skips and we’re still doing the same thing.

Three more weeks, and the Detroit Lions keep climbing up the 2020 NFL Draft order. That’s the first interesting part. There’s plenty more on the latest Pride of Detroit PODcast, where we examine a great deal of juicy topics that have emerged in the aftermath of the Vikings loss.

We also get to dive into the most memorable games of the 2010s for the NFL. That’s something we are required to do, almost by law, as the decade comes to a close. You’ll also get to hear me and Jeremy discuss quarterback paranoia, mozzarella sticks and one of the more frustrating topics that we try to argue over.

This week on PODcast:

  • Recapping the Vikings game as the Lions get swept for the season.
  • Darius Slay plays in his 100th game for the Lions.
  • David Blough comes back down to earth after a hot Thanksgiving game.
  • Updating the Lions draft position. They now sit at fifth, and we discuss the scenarios that could take place in the final three weeks that could see them move up even higher.
  • If the Lions keep trending up in the draft, do you trade down... or, perhaps, even trade up to make sure the team can snag Chase Young?
  • Glover Quin brings up the dreaded “culture” topic for the Lions, reigniting an old debate between Jeremy and myself about what it all means for the locker room. How checked in are the Lions players right now?
  • Mailbag questions examine Matthew Stafford on the sideline, and what kind of ego is necessary to be a starting quarterback in the NFL for a long period...and why a guy like Stafford just can’t be comfortable holding a clipboard even when hurt.
  • Jeremy and I rank some of the best games of the NFL from the 2010s, games that you’ll probably see late into the future on NFL Network talked about again and again. Depressingly enough, more than a few of them happen to be about the Patriots or bad rulebook problems.
