Stateside Podcast: Stafford, and Harbaugh, and Brady, Oh My!

The Detroit Lions
The Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions have never played in any of the 55 previous Super Bowls. But this year, Lions fans are — in a way — the closest they’ve ever been. That’s because former Lions quarterback, Matthew Stafford, is Super Bowl bound with the Rams. The Lions traded Stafford after 12 years and zero playoff wins. Some Michiganders have mixed feelings watching Stafford find so much success in another city.

But this isn't the only development in Michigan football news. University of Michigan coach, Jim Harbaugh, is reportedly interviewing for the Minnesota Vikings job and beloved Michigan Man, Tom Brady, announced today that he’s retiring. On today's Stateside podcast episode, what's new in Michigan football.

In a previous version we erroneously stated that the Detroit Lions have not played in the previous 52 Super Bowls, instead of 55.
