PODcast breaks down Lions’ loss to 49ers

examines what’s wrong with Matthew Stafford The PODcast wanted to waste no time
in getting this week’s show out. With the Detroit Lions’ disappointing loss to
the  http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com/nevin-lawson-jersey-authentic San Francisco 49ers still fresh in our mind, the PODcast crew went to the
recording booth (just our respective houses) Sunday night to spill our thoughts
into your earholes.The game was a little more palatable, but the end result was
the same. Do we feel better about this team right now? Should we feel better
about this team right now?And what the heck is up with Matthew Stafford? This is
a guy who was so damn close to winning over the entire city of Detroit—a near
impossible task for a Lions quarterback—and he’s looked so much worse than
expected. Sunday was better, but should we be worried about his long-term
prospects? We talk about all of this and much, much more on this week’s episode
of the PODcast:This week on the PODcast:Another controversial ending! Did the
refs get the penalty on Quandre Diggs right? THE LIONS ALMOST ESTABLISHED THE
RUN GAMELeGarrette Blount: Way to stick up for your quarterback or stupid play
that very well could’ve hurt this team’s chance at a comeback?Matthew Stafford
was better but still worse than is expected out of him. Are we worried yet?Good
cop, bad cop. Jeremy tries to go a whole segment focusing on the positive, but
Chris plays bad cop and points to impending doom on the schedule. Wally’s World
returns to examine hot takes about Matt Patricia’s weight, while Jeremy enters
the rage corner to complain about clock management... again. Mailbag doesn’t
like horror movies, talks about the future of Golden Tate Youth
Kerryon Johnson Jersey
, Ezekiel Ansah and Glover Quin, and the
increased role of Kerryon Johnson. Last week, we noted that Kerryon Johnson
finished third in Rookie of the Year among our FanPulse voters across the SB
Nation platforms. But it’s not just fans that are noticing the year the Detroit
Lions running back is having. ESPN handed out midseason NFL awards this week,
and while Johnson didn’t finish first in Offensive Rookie of the Year voting, he
was among the finalists—finishing fourth overall. He only received two votes
from the eight-analyst panel at ESPN, but one of those writers, Football
Outsiders’ Aaron Schatz, gave him a first-place vote. It would make sense for
Schatz to back Kerryon, because his statistics support that choice. Football
Outsiders’ DVOA metric ranks Johnson as the third most valuable running back in
the NFL—behind just Phillip Lindsay and Todd Gurley. Johnson current ranks third
in rushing yards (503) among rookies but first in yards per carry (5.7). Wide
receiver Andy Jones didn’t spend all that long off the team. After getting
waived from the Lions following their game against the Vikings (in which he
played two offensive snaps) http://www.thelionsfootballauthentic.com/matt-prater-jersey-authentic ,
Jone is back on the team’s practice squad. He replaces tight end Hakeem Valles,
who was waived by the team Wednesday for the second time this year.For whatever
reason, opposing teams aren’t blitzing the Lions very often this season: Matt
Patricia was mentioned on CBS Sports’ Hot Seat Power Rankings this week because
of what was a pretty awful week from Monday to Sunday. However, they conclude
that “this doesn’t feel like a one-and-done type of situation.” Here are your
game sound and radio calls from the Lions-Vikings game: After firing special
teams coordinator Joe Marciano, Matt Patricia said that assistant special teams
coach Devin Fitzsimmons would be taking many of the duties, but it would be a
team effort to fully replace him. Your daily Bruce Irvin update: The former
Raiders edge rusher signed with the Falcons on Wednesday. The biggest surprise:
