Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! The Detroit Lions are rocked by COVID-19 and controversy, and we're here for all of it!
Along with the Birthday Game and the Jerk of the Week, this week's topics include:
Interim head coach Darrell Bevell controversially fired special teams coordinator Brayden Coombs for insubordination.
Tom Brady's arm, Matthew Stafford's ankle and COVID-19 protocols combined to destroy a crippled Lions team in a nationally televised debacle of a loss to the Buccaneers.
Tigers confirm they will continue to uncreatively tread water in 2021 by signing thoroughly mediocre RHP Jose Urena to a one-year, $3.25 million deal.
RHP Alex Faedo, the Tigers #1 pick in 2017, will undergo Tommy John surgery. The Tigers forgot there’s a term for leaning on young pitching during a rebuild - “There Is No Such Thing As A Pitching Prospect."
As expected, the rebuilding Detroit Pistons began their compressed 72 game season 0-3. At least their sketchy, Gordon Gekko-esqe owner Tom Gores has finally bought into a rebuild.
Greg is baffled by the futility of the Giants, Cowboys, and Football Team, let alone the fact the NFC East could have a 6-10 division winner. Meanwhile Al understands Lions fans fear of moving on from Matthew Stafford after seeing the disaster in Washington which was the short-lived Dwayne Haskins era.
