The Knee Jerks - Eno and Big Al -Tigers post mortem, Lions at the quater pole

Long time Detroit podcasters and bloggers Greg Eno and Al Beaton are The Knee Jerks! This week it's all Jerks all the time, with hot takes on the Detroit Tigers, Detroit Lions, Detroit Red Wings and the state of sports journalism.

Along with playing the birthday game and naming Jerks of the Week, other topics include:

For the second time in 16 years, the Tigers are not just bad, but HISTORICALLY BAD. Rebuilding doesn't necessarily mean being embarrassingly bad.

The 2019 Tigers may have lost five fewer games, but you can argue they were worse than the 119 loss 2003 team.

In a lively ball league where four teams topped the previous home run record, the Tigers' offense hit as if it were still the dead ball era.

Building around pitching is a risky proposition. As for position prospects? What position prospects?!

The Lions are 2-1-1. Buying in or not, remember Bill Parcells once said, "You are what the record says you are". The record says they are a playoff contender.

Is too much being made over, what was in the end, still a loss? Fans are more excited over losing to the Chiefs than they were after the Lions beat the Chargers and Eagles.

The Darrell Bevell effect. Welcome back Gunslinging Matthew Stafford!

Like the Tigers, the Red Wings are rebuilding. Unlike the Tigers, the Wings are developing a young, exciting core.

Fox Sports Detroit is driving us bonkers with their silly games.

The disemboweling of Sports Illustrated is another sign of the decline of good sports writing.
