The Lion and The Cub Podcast

By The Lion and The Cub

The Lion and The Cub Podcast is a cheeky father-son Detroit Lions preview, reaction, and opinion podcast.

It is from the perspective of The Lion, the grizzled old man that has been a Detroit Lions fan since 1988 and The Cub, a young and still believing, Detroit Lions fan since 1992, or his entire life.

The Lion and The Cub understand that they don’t know the intricacies of The NFL and The Lions in particular. But, like all Lions fans everywhere, that does not stop them from having an opinion.

S1.E10 OH NO!! It's Déjà vu all over again! But, The Cub is back.

Hammer, Baker Mayfield, Dr. Phill, O.J. Simpson, Joe Theisman, Lawrence Taylor, Lions lose on ANOTHER heartbreaker! But Dan Campbell has large balls! Jared Goff has trouble throwing the ball, but can you blame him? Vikings gift the Lions a late fumble and they take the lead and still lose. Yahoo Sports does not give The Lions much of a chance of winning even with the lead and 37 seconds to go. The Lion covers the drives and only mispronounces a few players names. His name is JARED and fumbles too much! The Lions have a GREAT punter, YAY! The Cub brings up the lowest-scoring Superbowl in history. The Lion still hates Matt Millen @DarylJohnston knows more about officiating than @DeanBlandino The Lions are going to win, nothing to worry about, that is until they don’t. At least it didn’t hurt as much as the last time this happened. Dan Campbell cares and reminds The Lion of Chris Spielman. Quintez Cephus is out for the year. He broke his leg in college. John Legend is sexy! The fellas go over nap %, fascinating stuff. Sewell is having trouble pass blocking, no shit! How about a history of the Detroit Lions Left Tackles. Baker Mayfield can’t outrun the cops The Cub is tired and ready to end the Podcast. He then proceeds to get cranky and then to talk for another 30 minutes. The Cub gives betting tips. Bet on good teams. Urban Meyer still has a job. John Gruden has a job, but wait, he is now gone! The Browns lose again. Whoops. The Cub’s Dr. calls! No big deal! Andy Dalton plays like Andy Dalton. No kidding! O.J. like the Buffalo Bills This show is over. BUT WAIT THERE MORE! The Cub talks about opening a window on a plane! Everything in L.A. is awesome!

S1. E6 Autopsy of The Lions 19-17 BRUTAL Loss To The Ravens of Baltimore
S1. E6 Autopsy of The Lions 19-17 BRUTAL Loss To The Ravens of Baltimore
Here is our TreeLink: https://linktr.ee/TheLionandTheCubPodcast We have another STAR-STUDDED show. Dan Miller, Detroit Lions Talk With MicroMike, CBS Clueless Announcers, Coach Campbell, The Detroit Lions Marching Band, Homer Simpson, The Cub, The Lion, Brent Musburger, Joe Namath, Suzy Kolber, and Former Beatle Great RINGO STARR, also joins us. The Cub doesn't have s&^t to say and proceeds to talk for 40 minutes.  Then he calls out the Kansas City Chiefs! BOOM HOT TAKE! Then he uses Detroit Lion's circular reasoning to give us a victory in the Superbowl.  Punts galore in the first half. The Lion wants to save this game forever. Justin "Mother" Tucker, what can we say, LOTS. The Cub believes in curses and The Lion thinks Henry Ford made a deal with the devil and we are all suffering for it. The Lion takes a trip down Heartbreak Lane! The Cub drops an MFer The guys go over the game again. Just so they can suffer again. Jack Fox is the man until he isn't. Darla makes a quiet little visit. Welcome, Darla! The Lion doesn't understand nicknames. The Lion mentions his bad experience with Twitter. The Lion uses a nickname for the Lions, 1 minute after knocking nicknames.  Toledo Saint John Titans get a mention! The Cub struggles with Lions player's names. The Lion tells Lions fans to not blame the officials New term, doink of the century (TM). Suddenly it becomes a Kansas City Chiefs post-game show. The Cub mentions his lack of betting skills. Waa Waa The show is wrapped up...... but wait! The Cub doesn't like Da Bears. Around the league: The wrapup of Sunday's games. What is win probability? Who figures that out.  Kenny Golladay gets mad, again. Ben Roethlisberger is old. 3-0 is a good start for the season. 0-3 is bad. Picking the Lions to make the playoffs was NOT a good bet. More former Lions greats play today. The Cub has a senior moment and can't remember the name of the Eagles quarterback 20 years ago. The Lion mentions Twitter again and Ringo comes to the rescue.

S1.E5 We are up to number 5 and it is a preview of this weeks game vs. the Baltimore Ravens!
We have a star-studded show for you this week. Literally a cast of thousands!  Al Gore, The Detroit Lions Marching Band, The Cub, The Lion, Jim Varney, Barak Obama, Chris Berman, Tom Jackson and Dan Campbell. Controversy about Dan Cambell's eyes! Was he making fun of Asian people! NOPE! We remember the ONLY Lions victory against the Ravens it happened back in 2006. Throwing Joey and DANCING LIONS! 21 penalties and the Lions didn't do it! Neon Dion Sanders! Bye, Bye Collins. At some point....... The Lion can't remember the Lion kickers. The Lion can't pronounce another Lions player's name and another and another. Then he goes back to the old days, YAWN! The Black Eyed Peas pop up as well as the Fugees. Again, The Lion can't remember who is who. The Cub gives us some old job stories regarding MISS Lauren Hill and Chance The Rapper. The injury practice report doesn't look bad.  The men agree that Cris Collinsworth is a dufus. They also agree that Lamar Jackson is a good quarterback. As was Michale Vick. These two are brilliant.  They then give you guaranteed bets to keep the casinos in business. The we want points fun bet of the week is a sure loser. Sorry. The Lion talks Tickets, Tickets, Tickets Thoughts and prayers and nobody is dead. However, we remember Charles Rodgers. The Lion doesn't know if Titus Young is dead or alive. He is alive and out of prison! The Cub gives you a list of former Lion greats! The show format changes on the fly. Now it is a Thursday night recap! Sam Darnold is 3-0! The Lion DIDN'T see the game due to his beauty sleep. The Cub rags on Adam Gase. Even if he was a former Lion assistant. The Lion talks former Detroit Drive great, Art Schlichter. Arena Bowl IV in 1990.  The Cub is getting foggy memories, oh boy. See you after the game on Monday!

S1.E2 - Game #1 Detroit Lions 33 - San Francisco 49ers, 41. The Lion and The Cub do an autopsy of the game. Come join us, will you?
Well, The Detroit Lions fell to the long-time rival San Francisco 49ers 41 to 33. There was plenty to like and plenty to be worried about. Listen for an autopsy of the game. Just a couple of old Lions fans telling you what they think. It is fascinating listening for a Monday evening.

S1.E1. Let's get you ready for some Detroit Lions Football
S1.E1. Let's get you ready for some Detroit Lions Football
OK, here we go. Internet, please be kind as we know you are. Where are we at? Two huge media centers of Hamtramck and Lambertville, Mi. The magic of Discord brings us together for your ears to enjoy. Let's talk some pregame no-go at Eastern Market and no-go Taylor Decker. He gave somebody the finger and now he needs surgery....maybe. Nich Bosa could kill our Quarterback Matthew Stafford, whoops, sorry, Jared Goff. Speaking of killing, ALLEGEDLY D’Andre Swift is, isn't, no comment is ALLEGEDLY involved in an investigation into a murder in Philly on July 4th.   We HAVE a kicker! He HAS made 1 kick from more than 50 yards in his career. So, there is that going for him. Don Muhlbach's unemployment ran out this week like the rest of us, so he retired from football and took a job in The Lions front office. Then they can fire him on his 41st. birthday next year all over again. Also, if the new long snapper sucks, Donnie can do two jobs and double-dip on the paycheck. The 49ers are picked to kick the Lions' ass by 7.5-8.5 points. Heavy betting on San Francisco. Oh boy. Plenty of tickets available for the game. Take it from The Lion a 30-year ticket broker. WAIT AND PRICES WILL DROP! The old man hates predictions and mock drafts. SO he bitches about it for the Millenials and then proceeds to predict the Lions will not cover. Look for his 2022 mock draft next week. Enjoy the show, everyone! Gooooooooooooooooo Lions
