Hope or doom: which one awaits the Lions after Patricia?

How bad is the damage done?

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Detroit Tigers Raj Mehta-USA TODAY Sports

You are at a crossroad. The timelines splay out in front of you. All roads are obscured. As you take that first step, you could step towards doom or righteousness. You cannot stand still. You could swallow your fears, but what is your mind like as you take the first step, knowing it could annihilate you?

We are surrounded by crushing optimism. Everywhere you look, you are told to hustle hard, work hard, be bright, smile. Smarm rules the roost. Don’t you dare show your doubts. You know the sort.

For the Detroit Lions, you could look up, see the world after the Boston Boys, and think it’s all right and rain-free. Or perhaps you see the dread: that the coming rebuild could make 2008 come right back around.

This instant reaction podcast we recorded is a heat check. Right in the moment, where myself, Jeremy Reisman, Ryan Mathews and Mike Payton feel in the first moments of the future-time. Where do the Lions go from here? A grasp at answers that have no shadows.
