Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! We start a new year with one of the oldest friends of the show - Former Detroit Pistons player and coach Ray Scott. The Coach reminisces about his 12 year NBA/ABA career and gives his opinions on dire straits the Pistons now find themselves. When Coach says its time to change things up, it truly is time to blow up the roster. Along with the Birthday Game and Jerk of the Week, topics for the second half of the show include: Steve Yzerman makes the rounds to discuss the current state of the franchise. Really? A GM SPEAKS DURING THE SEASON? What a concept! Stevie Y want to be aggressive in obtaining more draft capital, but admits his current trade pieces aren't playing well.
Lions' GM Bob Quinn made one of his very rare media appearances, and nothing surprising was revealed. Though Quinn did make some disingenuous comments about blaming injuries for a 3 win season and claiming he had to rebuild a 9 win, borderline playoff, team.
There were scapegoats aplenty, including the resignation of DC Paul Pasqualoni, and numerous assistant coaches and the entire strength and conditioning staff getting the ziggy. Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa declared for the draft, giving the Lions several options for either trading down, taking the best available player or your QB for the future. Upcoming guests: Red Wings broadcaster Ken Kal on 01/29/20.
