Also they brought up how good Matthew Stafford and Matt Prater are. John says his biggest concern is the run defense right now.
Pistons were next on the rundown and their big win Sunday against the Timberwolves. Pat talked about how big Avery Bradley has been as a calming voice and Andre Drummond's improvement.
The panel then moved on to the Red Wings and their bad loss to the Avalanche on Sunday. John pointed out how that looked a lot like last years Red Wings. Pat went after Jeff Blashill and their struggles at the end of games and in overtime.
Michigan State football was next up and their win over Maryland Saturday. John talked how they have completely flipped the script from what they did a season ago. Pat says they are in better shape than Michigan is going forward.
