The Knee Jerks Podcast - Eno, Nick and Big Al

Nov 18, 2020

Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! We were forced to miss a show due to injury, but Greg's off the IR and we're back to talk Detroit sports! Along with the Birthday Game and the Jerk of the Week, this week's topics include:

The Detroit Tigers don't overthink it, hire the consensus best manager on the market in AJ Hinch. Cue the moral pearl clutching from a small but vocal part of the fan base over his role in the Houston Astros' sign stealing scandal

Hinch builds a staff, looks outside the old boys network for his pitching coach

Chicago White Sox double down on stupid, ignore the availability of Hinch and hire a problematic 76 year old Tony LaRussa who was just busted for a DUI
New Detroit Pistons GM Troy Weaver makes the first significant move of his tenure by trading fan favorite SG Bruce Brown to the Nets. The Pistons fan base reacted as if Chauncy Billups had been dealt, instead of a replacement level guard

The NBA is in a mad rush to start the 2020-21 season in order to earn that sweet, sweet TV money. Meaning the LA Lakers and Miami Heat will have a mere 71 day off season

Detroit Lions blow another huge lead, needing a miracle comeback to beat the Washing Football Team. The victory likely saved the jobs of Matt Patricia and Bob least temporarily

Will another bad loss finally force the hand of Lions owner Shelia Ford Hamp? Try to think like a Ford....we dare you

Isn’t this exactly how we saw the Lions' season playing out? The Lions were in a prime position to clean house and reset the entire franchise going into 2020. They owned the 3rd overall pick, and  a pair of franchise QBs in Tua Tagovailoa and Justin Herbert available. But the Fords kept the current regime with a win now edict. don't draft a QB, make short-term based decisions and are now mired in the no-man's land of missing the playoffs and a draft pick in the mid-teens

Greg calls out Patrica for his word salad filled post game pressers and Al rants at the NCAA for pissing into the COVID-19 wind, then wondering why they're wet
