Conversation with Detroit Free-Press Beat Writer Dave Birkett [AUDIO]

| October 14th, 2015

Dave Birkett sounds the way the man covering the Detroit Lions should: dour. During the conversation he discusses:

  • Defensive lack of identity in the post-Suh era.
  • How age is starting to catch up with the Lions roster at various positions, including wide receiver and linebacker.
  • Why Matthew Stafford is losing confidence of Lions fans and quite possibly ownership.
  • Calvin Johnson no longer being Calvin Johnson.
  • A possible bright side for the remainder of the 2015 season. (Hint: it starts with Lions winning Sunday.)
