Podcast: Reacting to the Stafford injury, general manager news, Packers loss

The Lions are going without a search firm in the GM hunt, but is that a good thing or a bad thing?

The adrenaline high of firing Patricia was bound to end, and so it did when the defense fell apart against the Green Bay Packers. But hey, these things happen even in the best of times for the Lions, and so it’s the rote usual even when it’s not.

On this podcast, Jeremy and I break down the failings (again) of the defense as it struggles to keep pace with Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense; but the big story came late in the game against Green Bay as Matthew Stafford left the game hurt.

With all the turnover and changes that could be coming for the Lions, a major Stafford injury at this point is a massive concern, especially for his stock in any remaining future in Detroit, not even mentioning if we’ll see any more of Stafford for the rest of the year.

But that’s not all. We’re also breaking down the news that the Lions are interviewing general manager candidates internally, not using a search firm and including long time NFL front office veteran Mike Disner in their talent search. What does that all mean? We break it down to layman’s terms and all the implications here on PODcast.
