The Knee Jerks - Eno and Big Al - Everywhere but Detroit

Long time Detroit podcasters and bloggers Greg Eno and Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks!

Along with playing the Birthday Game and naming our the Jerk of the Week, this week's topics include:

Losses to the Bears and  Rams have the Detroit Lions at 4-98. The season is essentially over, so the fan and media blame game has begun. But who is to blame? Bob Quinn? Matt Patricia? Matthew Safford? Jim Bob Cooter? Every-damn-one of them?
Considering the staggering amount of dead salary cap money trading or cutting Stafford would cause, is it even feasible the Lions would move on from their veteran QB? The sunk cost fallacy is in play. 
All signs point to Cooter being the next sacrificial lamb.
The loss to the Rams means it's been 25 years since the Lions' last won a division title.  Over the decades, every other NFL franchise has figured it out and had some sort of sustained success...but not the Lions. 
Looking at the team's needs for next season, it appears more like a rebuild instead of a "culture change".
The Detroit Tigers sign washed up journeyman free agent lefty Matt Moore to a one-year deal, signaling there will be no accelerating the rebuild. 
Tanking will continue in earnest, with no signs as to when it will end. 
The Tigers also non-tendered a pair of veterans. Moving on from James McCann was expected, but releasing Alex Wilson definitely was not.
