Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! Along with the Birthday Game and the Jerk of the Week, this week's topics include:
The Detroit Lions will not franchise tag WR Kenny Golladay or DE Romeo Okwara, masking both unrestricted free agents
The Lions' salary cap and future timeline just didn't match up with Golladay. As for Okwara, was his 10 sack season an outlier or is this what you can expect in years to come? Someone will bet it's the former, but it won't be the Lions
The Lions' front office have made moves which arguably make sense both financially and in roster building, which is mind-blowing to long suffering fans
To no one's surprise, the Detroit Pistons confirmed Blake Griffin was untradeable by negotiating a massive contract buyout
Chasing a ring, Griffin signed with the Brooklyn Nets. Can Griffin extend his career as bench role player?
During a post All-Star game presser, Pistons' GM Troy Weaver
explained why he uses the term "restore" rather than rebuild,
showing he gets the franchise's history
Greg can't fathom how powerful, middle aged (and older) men have no idea how to treat women, the latest example being the disgraced Les Miles. Al calls out the NBA's money grab of holding an All-Star Game during pandemic, and their BS claim it was only held to benefit HBCUs.
