But what if I told you that there’s a better alternative to watching the Lions on Sunday that allows you to still root for them without the emotional attachment?
Introducing our weekly Madden Sims! Every week, I fire up Madden 21 on the old PC and watch the virtual Detroit Lions take on their weekly opponent in a full simulation. I don’t call plays, I don’t take on the identity of any players. I simply line up the two teams against each other, adjust the lineups according to the latest injury reports, and see who comes out on top.
It’s also a fun opportunity to do a live chat with you all. If you join our live stream at 10:30 a.m. ET, you can comment, ask questions about the Lions, and interact with other Lions fans in the live chat. We also like to run polls, and ask questions to the viewers to keep things fun and light. All the while, I’m providing live commentary for the Madden simulation
So come watch, have a little low-stakes fun, and spend some time with further disgruntled Lions fans.
Here are the details.
