This week Ron Mott returns to the show to discuss his latest Sportsopoly column - Lovable losers: Lions on-brand more than ever

Ron gives us his thoughts on the Lions' exciting, yet one again losing, season. We also cover who's good, who's bad and who's disappointing after four weeks of NFL play.

In the second half of the show, topics include:

Since we last spoke the Lions have gone 0-2 with plenty of controversy, second guessing, and no defense

Dan Campbell had 3 options to pick from at the end of the Vikings game. He went with the absolute worse one, ultimately costing the Lions a win

The Lions did the unimaginable in their 48-45 loss to the Seahawks - their defense never got a stop, and Seattle never punted

DC Aaron Glenn, touted as a rising star before the season, is now under fire as the Lions defense has been historically inept

On the flip, the Lions' offense leads the league in scoring. In fact, the Lions are the 30th team in the Super Bowl era to score 140 or more points in their first four games…but the only one to have a losing record

Is Jared Goff a franchise QB? Since the last 4 games of the 2021 season, Goff has sure as Hell played like one

The Tigers announce Miguel Cabrera will return in 2023 for what will be his final season. We all know there will be no Pujols-like resurgence and Cabrera's career is going to end badly. But the only person to blame for the current situation is 6 feet under.

We also play The Birthday Game and name our respective Jerk of the Week!
