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:
After intervening everyone but Eno, the Detroit Lions hired Brad Holmes, Rams director of college scouting, as GM, and Saints assistant HC/TE coach Dan Campbell as head coach.
Knee cap biting Campbell is no Matt Patricia...which is for the better
We're no longer as worried the Lions have an inexperienced coach and GM combo thanks to some very experienced staff hires with extensive NFL backgrounds.
The Lions were the wrong team to call out in regard to NFL minority hiring practices. Yes, the league needs far more diversity at the highest levels, but the Lions have a much better recent track record with minorities than numerous other NFL franchises
Matthew Stafford asks for a trade, Lions deal him to the LA Rams for a king's ransom...and Jared Goff
Once you take off the blue colored glasses, just what is Matthew Stafford's Detroit legacy?
Despite a short career and the stigma of being a Lion, Calvin Johnson is elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on the first ballot
Does Shelia Ford Hamp actually "get it?"
Troy Weaver continues reshaping the Detroit Pistons roster, ships Derrick Rose to the Knicks
The Pistons may not be a good team, but they are a young, fun team. Something they haven't been for over a decade
Greg is disappointed in Anthony Mantha, Al is already exhausted by sportsbook app advertising
