Not a week after the Lions dismissed their special teams coordinator for going rogue on a fake punt, most of the coaching staff finds itself sidelined due to COVID-19 protocols. This leaves Robert Prince, the wide receivers coach, to lead the team on Saturday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Bucs are on the verge of the playoffs for the first time in 13 years, and quarterback Tom Brady is set to play in his 300th regular season game. Tampa is rolling, and with all the deck stacked it looks to be pretty grim for Detroit.
There’s probably a lot to be made about how Tom Brady is here playing a career milestone, a Michigan Man and all things of that nature, but your humble author of this blog has never been one of either big school in the state of Michigan, and must, like a Futurama Neutral, state that he has no strong opinion on this matter.
The post-Christmas game is upon us.
