Chicago Cubs 2019 Season Recap

Tom Greene | November 14th, 2019

In the middle of July, things seemed great on the North Side. The Cubs were leading the division by multiple games and it seemed as if the Cubs were going to cruise to a division title… until the bottom fell out and the Cardinals ended up division champs. Joe Maddon jumped ship and the North Side is now asking the question, “How do we get back to 2016?”

With the help of our @theriot326, Cub Fan and DFS Man, Let’s dive deeper into our 2016 question by looking back at what went right and wrong. Continue reading

Detroit Lions Week 10 Recap- Lions Find Chicago Overbearing

Tom Greene | November 11th, 2019

The Lions came into this game thinking that a Chicago offense lead by Mitchell Trubisky would at least put a band-aid on the problems that were on the defensive side. It turned out not to be true. While Trubisky only threw for 145 yards, the Lions secondary allowed him to throw for three touchdowns, and that’s all the Bears needed in a 20-13 victory over Detroit.

Lions-Bears Preview with Anthony Pasquale and Joe Ricotta

We rant. We talk Lions, Bears, and Cubs. Animal activists may want to avoid this podcast. But, for the rest of you, it’s a great one! Check it out! (Warning- multiple curse words used. We’re not happy.) Continue reading

Detroit Lions Week 9 Recap- Gruden, Carr Raid Lions

Tom Greene | November 4th, 2019

The Lions traveled to Oakland in their last season at the Colosseum. The plan was to use an Air-Raid offense (like Arizona’s) to sink the Raiders’ ship in the Black Hole for one last time. Instead, Jon Gruden utilized Derek Carr to do exactly what Matthew Stafford was supposed to do- raid the secondary and win the game. Continue reading

Detroit Lions Week 8 Recap: Giant Victory Keeps Lions on the Prowl

Tom Greene | October 28th, 2019 

At 2-3-1, division and/or playoff hopes seem far-fetched. Not many teams, if any, come back from 2-5 (or 2-4-1) to play meaningful football in January. But, .500 teams after week eight still have a chance, and the Lions had a chance to get back into the race with that record.
