There are only FOUR teams in the NFL that have never been to a Superbowl, and the Lions are among them.  Why can’t Detroit get into the game? Can the Lions recover from the Matt Millen era? Come draft season when they use their 10th round pick will they finally get a real playmaker? TC and Jeff make predictions about who will be drafted, and ask what was Millen thinking?!

Will the Detroit Lions Ever Win the Superbowl?:

  • How come the Lions can’t win?
  • What was the biggest positive draft of the Matt Millen era?
  • Herman Moore vs Calvin Johnson
  • Listen in to find out more

Tc and Jeff get down to business and about the long and short of it, touching on the Matt Millen era recovery. With strong teams like the Packers, the Bears and occasionally the Vikings can the Lions ever expect to make it to the Superbowl?  Even The Bears have been to a bowl game in the last 10 years. TC and Jeff also get nostalgic about one of TC’s passions other than sports, music and by music we mean METAL! These guys share a passion for bands like Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Def Leppard and Van Halen!

This 6’5″ die-hard Lion’s fan grew up in Cleveland likes his music loud (and Metal), his coffee black, and his sunglasses on.  When he isn’t spending time with his wife and son in their West Michigan home they can be found playing competitive Volleyball.  Jeff and his wife have won 11 co-ed tournaments! Jeff is the lead NFL AND Draft writer at and has been the featured columnist over at one of our favorite sites the Bleacher Report! Give him a follow over on twitter, but be warned on Saturdays during CFB season you may want to mute his tweets!

You know me as TC from the Daily Dementia - the greatest podcast before prodcasts were podcasts - back in the late 90's. Now I'm making it sexy on Sportsnaut and pulling the strings ala Bela Lugosi in Plan 9 from Outer Space.
