Long time Detroit podcasters and bloggers Greg Eno and Al Beaton
are The Knee Jerks!
Eno and Big Al return after a holiday hiatus and realize everything
in Detroit pro sports, to put it bluntly, sucks.
Along with playing the Birthday Game and naming our the Jerk of the
Week, this week's topics include:
It's been over than a 1000 days since a Detroit team won playoff
game. When was the last tine the local pro sports scene was THIS
bad? Back when Greg and Al were living in the teenage wasteland
known as the 1970's with the Dead Wings, the Lions were always
mediocre, the Tigers were in full rebuild mode and the
Pistons were completely irrelevant.
The Detroit Lions fire one scapegoat in offensive coordinator Jim
Bob Cooter and replace him with former Seattle Seahawks scapegoat
and OC Darrell Bevell.
Detroit Tigers' GM Al Avila admits the franchise will not be
spending money on free agents for at least another 2-3 seasons. You
would not want to be working in Tigers ticket sales when your own
team is waving the while flag in January.
Avila also claims there's no takers for all bat, no glove RF
Nicholas Castellanos. Reportedly Castellanos' agent has requested
the team trade him before the start of spring training. Good luck
The Detroit Pistons' roster has evolved into an All-NBA level Blake
Griffin surrounded by a bunch of nincompoops with toxic
The NBA trade deadline is in 2 weeks, the Pistons have to decide if
they should buy, sell or hold. The best solution may be to not do a
thing and wait for the bad contracts of Reggie Jackson (who has
become the face of all that is wrong with the team) and friends to
come off the books, which will take 2 years.
Though they own one of the worst records in the NHL, at
least the Detroit Red Wings have a plan, are sticking to it and
have begun to develop a core of young players...in spite of the
actions of head coach Jeff Blashill.
