Refs cast no shadow on the playoff Detroit Lions

The league got embarrassed, but the Detroit Lions remain steady for the goal for the postseason.

Syndication: Detroit Free Press Junfu Han / USA TODAY NETWORK

This is your first Lions PODcast of 2024, and the last one of 2023. In Japan, there’s the concept of a shrine visit near midnight so you can tick off the box for both years. That’s what we’re doing here.

And what a show, what a game, and what a debacle. NFL officiating showed its whole arse in a mess of a mess, the Detroit Lions have paid the price for it again and the punishment won’t really do much to help Detroit. You know, the usual lot.

On this episode of the Pride of Detroit PODcast, we’re taking a look back to Dallas. A well fought game against a Dallas Cowboys squad that usually likes the home cooking, a defense coming on at the right moment, questions to the offensive playcalling and how much that might vex this team in January and the standouts and dud performances. But really, we’re talking a lot about a bull-pucky official doing bull-pucky things and a lesson in what “eligible receiver” means. If I can figure that out and you can’t, you’re in trouble.

The playoff picture looms large, and we digest it all as well.

Thank you for all your support to the PODcast in 2023, and we hope to continue to entertain and inform you entering into the new year.
