Detroit Lions ‘Hard Knocks’ episode 3 recap, review

Who needs this new “Game of Thrones” show when you have “hard knocks”? It’s so sad that we are past the midpoint of the Detroit Lions‘ run in this program. There are only two episodes left. However, the third episode was another hit that I will definitely watch again.

As always, I have thoughts about this week’s episode. These are those thoughts:

Get the dirt off your jeans

The Lions need to get the shit out of their pants. What an interesting way to get a point across. Campbell took off a pair of pants and it was covered in dirt. He said the Lions are almost there and they’re going to go far, but they need to get their pants dirty. It’s the last thing they need to clean. I loved this moment.

Alex Anzalone Depends

Speaking of shit and pants. Apparently, Alex Anzalone is coming out of diarrhea, and Campbell wanted to make sure he had the Dependency on him. Maybe that’s why Anzalone didn’t play against the Falcons?

King Obinna

This was a really cool moment on the show. Eze talked about coming from a basketball background and coming from Nigeria. We also met Eze’s passionate wife, Yasmeen. She’s great. It’s crazy that Eze has only played football for seven years, and she’s at this point. There are definitely still some growing pains and we saw that for sure. Here’s hoping Eze makes the team. He definitely looked good down the stretch of the Lions’ game against the Colts.

play it

Kalil Pimpleton just juggled on premium television. Who would have ever thought such a thing would happen? The team began booing him until they were completely captivated by his every move. I know my wife and I were on the edge of our seats at home watching him do his tricks. By the way, that guy is super fast.

Aaron Glenn and Hutch

What a moment between Aidan Hutchinson and Aaron Glenn. You can tell the Lions really love Hutchinson and are glad they took him.

joint practice

This is what everyone wanted to see. The Lions and Foals practice in the field of dreams. We start with Jamaal Williams almost hitting a little boy with a soccer ball and Antwaan Randle-El and Duce Staley talking about how Williams would have to give up his paycheck.

We then got to see Williams and Zaire Franklin get nervous. I loved the passion between the two. Franklin was definitely holding up. Campbell even had to calm him down a bit. You have to love the passion that Williams has.

Where is Duce’s voice?

Is there anything funnier than watching Duce Staley chase down his team without a voice? It was funny to see him gasp through it.

joseph adams

Josh Adams has just become a star. Does this count as his HBO special? Can we call Alex Anzalone Thor now? Dan Campbell’s roast was worth every penny the Lions paid Adams to come to Indianapolis. Hutchinson really does look like a member of a boy band from around 1998.

a much better day

The Lions had a bad day against the Colts on Day 1 of joint practices. That’s not what happened on Day 2 at all. The offense was fanned out and that was fine, but it was the defense that was the star of Day 2. They punished the Colts’ offense and didn’t allow them to do anything on the field. Red zone. That’s the kind of thing that really gives you hope. The Lions are capable of improving after bad days.

Craig and his brother

This story took a turn I didn’t expect. He did not know this story. Reynolds and his brother had a video call from the prison where his brother is. Unfortunately, Reynolds’ brother has never seen Craig play football in person. The good thing is that there is still a great love relationship there and Reynolds still looks up to his brother. Even if it’s not the same way he used to do it. A really beautiful segment.

He said “Gee!”

If you remember our “Hard Knocks” Drinking Game, that means you need to take a photo. She was very happy to see David Blough’s redemption. Blough needed this moment in the game after the fumble against the Falcons and he got it.

fly the plane

It’s a shame no one got a punch-out. It would have been nice to see if Chase Lucas could actually fly that Delta plane home. This is what I love about Dan Campbell. Just these funny little things that he says to himself without realizing that other people can hear him.

there is nothing like winning

Inject Dan Campbell post-win speeches into my veins. I’ve never heard of half of the games he was talking about, but it was amazing to hear him say all of that. The Lions are coming up and good things are happening. You can feel it with this team. When you hear Campbell talk to the players about him after a win, you can see why the team feels that way too.
