Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! We're suffering from Lions ennui, but power thru regardless! Along with the Birthday Game and the Jerk of the Week, topics for this show include:
The Lions manhandled the Jaguars, as D'andre Swift had a breakout game and the defense was shockingly effective. One caveat - the Jags are an awful team in contention for the 1st overall pick.
Was the Jags game a must-win for Matt Patricia? According to CBS's Jason La Conforna's Lions sources, a loss would have been the final mail in Patrica's coffin. Interestingly, GM Bob Quinn wasn't mentioned as being in jeopardy.
Kenny Golladay posts cryptic social media messages about getting paid as contract negotiations with the Lions are seemingly at a standstill.
Of the Lions' next 6 games, 4 opponents have just 1 win each. Are we really talking about PLAYOFFS? No, but some will.
As NHL free agency starts, Steve Yzerman is the anti-Ken Holland by inking solid role players to reasonable, short-term deals. Stevie Y has a PLAN.
While the Tigers are busy interviewing younger, analytically inclined managerial candidates, the leader for the White Sox's opening is...74-year-old Tony LaRussa?
Announcement: We are shifting our recording day from Sunday to Tuesday. Shows will be available by midnight on Wednesday morning. Thanks for listening!
