Detroit sports podcasters Greg Eno, Big Al Beaton and Nick Milanovich are The Knee Jerks!

This week we cover the gamut in Detroit sports, discussing the Detroit Lions' Chicken Little fanbase, ask if the Detroit Pistons will ever win again, ponder where Patrick Kane fits in the Detroit Red Wings' Yzerplan, praise the Detroit Tigers for locking down AJ Hinch and determine if thinking both Florida State got screwed and Alabama deserved to be be in the college football playoff can be true at the same time. 

Our topics include:

The Lions keep winning, even as the games get uglier and uglier. 

Is the sky falling? Some in Detroit's fanbase believe so...despite the Lions owning the 3rd overall seed in the NFC at 9-3 overall, and are 8-2 in their last 10, 4-1 in their last 5. 

So the sky is not falling! But there are reasons to be concerned, specifically in regard to the Lions' porous pass defense. 

As for the playoffs? They are still a lock.

The Lions have a very young core, and have a front office having shown they can consistently nail the draft. Honestly, they aren't yet ready to win a Super Bowl. But next year...

In midst of a franchise record 17 game losing streak, the Pistons are reportedly "reluctant to hit the panic button."  What, exactly, would that be?  Frankly, firing GM Troy Weaver wouldn't be a panic move, it would just be deserved.

Does Steve Yzerman think he has finally built a playoff roster? He hasn't outright said so, but he all but confirmed it by signing Patrick Kane.

Dylan Larkin has stepped up his game and is playing like a top line center. 

Jim Leyland was deservedly voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. And his 8 seasons managing the Tigers is what put him over the top.

The Tigers locked down manager AJ Hinch, inking him to a long-term contact extension. Works for us!

College football has devolved into utter chaos. 

Will Jim Harbaugh be on the Michigan Wolverines sideline next September, or will he be four hours west with the Chicago Bears in Soldier Field?

FSU got screwed. Sideways. 

We also play Greg's Birthday Game and name our respective Jerk of the Week!
