Long-time Detroit sports bloggers and podcasters Greg Eno and Big Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks!
It's the end of the year and decade, but not the end of The Knee Jerks! This special end of the year show features a favorite returning guest - EMU Eagles head football coach Chris Creighton, Coach talks about the disappointing ending of the Quick Lane Bowl and the controversy surrounding QB Mike Glass III's late game actions. Coach also talks about how he preps for games, his upcoming recruiting class, and his future at the university.
In the second half of the podcast, the Jerks talk Lions futility and the Tigers, shockingly, make a couple of solid moves in free agency. Along with playing the birthday game and naming Jerks of the Week, topics include: The Lions will retain the services of Matt Patricia and Bob Quinn, despite their train wreck 3-12-1 season. This will not end well.
Does an admittedly soft "win or else" ultimatum from the Fords lead to questionable short-term decision making by the Lions' front office?
Shelia Ford Hamp is being groomed to take over the reigns of the franchise. But her "We're doing what's right for the organization" statement sounds suspiciously like "Mom is going to be 95 soon and we don't want to start over again."
The Fords confirm they will not be selling the team anytime soon, so can we put the "Sell the team!" trope to bed? It's not happening....at least not in our lifetimes.
Will Patricia's meat puppet/defensive coordinator Paul Pasqualoni become a sacrificial lamb?
The Tigers shore up the right side of their infield by signing CJ Cron and Johnathan Schoop, a pair of big league ballplayers with legit 20-30 home run power, About God damn time.
Upcoming guests: Former Pistons player and head coach Ray Scott on 01/12/20, and Red Wings broadcaster Ken Kal on 01/29/20.
