Let’s be honest with ourselves. The reality Detroit Lions have not been a ton of fun to watch. There are exciting moments here and there, but this is a city that is exhausted with all of the bad football they’ve been exposed to, and it looks like we’re probably in for another three months of that.
The virtual reality Detroit Lions, on the other hand, okay... they’re bad, too. But at least a comedy of errors in Madden 22 doesn’t hit you emotionally like, for example, a 66-yard game-losing field goal. We can sit and laugh when virtual Jared Goff stands in the pocket for eight motionless seconds before getting strip-sacked by Danielle Hunter. If that happens in real life... well, the frustration grows for the future of this team at quarterback.
What I’m saying is that you should join our live Madden sim this week. It’s a way to hang out with fellow Lions fans, interact with me personally, ask me any questions you may have, and enjoy a football game that has absolutely no stakes attached.
The fun kicks off at 10:30 a.m. ET and you can watch, chat or just lurk on our Twitch channel. You can also just watch the game in the embedded video at the bottom of the article.
See you there!
