Is Lomas truly a Lions legend?

Somebody with the Lions or WJR must think he is. Or he works cheap

Brandstatter is fine as a color guy.  He is atrocious as a PBP guy for Michigan.

This is a Lions move and Cumulus/WJR is taking the bullet.      

I don't like Lomas Brown.  I used to until he admitted intentionally not blocking for Scott Mitchell.   He should have never ever admitted that.  A Hall Of Famer doesn't do it, much less admit it.

I loved Brandstatter in his early days doing MI games. But either my ear has changed a lot (certainly probably) or Brandstatter has but he drives me crazy today. IDK about Lomas either though...

Thinking on it more, Lomas will be worse in the short run at a minimum.  He isn't polished and what little I have heard from him on the radio, well, he wouldn't be considered if he weren't Lomas.  I don't recall him impressing me with his breakdown of the game.

Hopefully I am wrong.

This is odd. Also, they fired the wrong announcer.

I agree with this

Yep. Brandstatter lost the wrong job.

I wonder what the radio audience is for NFL games.  I can't imagine it's all that high.

Its really stupid that it's 2018 and we have to listen to games on AM.  Valente sucks.

I think it's stupid that we still have "generic" announcers for TV games.  I really wish we could have a home town TV crew instead of having to listen to the national guys.

Yeah, it's gotta be mostly people in cars or at work, which on Sunday afternoons and Monday nights can't be that many.

Nobody is happier about that than 97.1 The Ticket.  The Lions weren't worth the non-stop bitching whenever anyone said anything bad about them.   Even when they were 0-16.   It was relentless and I applaud Valenti for not caving in like others did.     

It does suck that they are on AM only, but that's on Cumulus and I am very surprised they haven't put them on 93.1 FM.

Lomas has been terrible the few times I've seen him on TV, like in pre-season. If they wanted a former Lion they should have hired Spielman.

He isn't taking the job. He has a better one on TV. Lomas is a big downgrade. I don't get the appeal of having a former player who has been out of the NFL for so long, none of his information is even relevant at this point. I enjoyed Brandstatter.

I only listen when I am in the car.  It's not like baseball where I suspect more people listen on the radio.  There is only one game a week and most fans set that time aside to watch every week.
