Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! This week we welcome back the head football coach for Eastern Michigan University, Chris Creighton. In a wide ranging discussion, Coach gives us his thoughts on the Eagles' season to this point, the performance of new QB Ben Bryant, working with the transfer portal, and new head basketball coach Stan Heath.
In the second half of the show topics include:
Tigers' season post mortem
Singing the praises of AJ Hinch
Tearing down the roster was easy. GM Al Avila's next job, getting the right pieces to get his rebuilt roster over the hump is much, much harder
The Red Wings lose Jakub Vrana to injury
Turns out Tyler Bertuzzi is an anti-vax idiot. We would have no problem with the Wings sitting Bertuzzi until he was vaccinated
The losses to the Ravens and Bears were 60 years of the Same Old Lions in a 2 week nutshell
The Lions are victimized by missed calls because they are always in a position where a missed call results in the worst case scenario
Greg goes off on the bonkers situation Urban Meyer has placed the Jaguars, noting it wasn't hard to see coming.
Al can't believe all the pearl clutching over Lions fans venting 60 years of frustration with the Ford family by their relentless booing of owner Shelia Ford Hamp while honoring Calvin Johnson. Owners get booed and the Ford family deserves it more than most.
