Tonight's show: Adam Biggers, some classic Eno rants!

Join "The Knee Jerks" tonight and get ready to listen to some rants!

First, the "fourth Jerk," Bleacher Report's Adam Biggers, joins the Jerks for another edition of "Adam Rants." Tonight's topic: MSU's Derrick Nix's "bulletin board material" and whether we should care if college kids engage in a little trash talk. Adam also has some harsh words for those who take to Twitter and Facebook to belittle high school kids for not choosing the "right" school on National Signing Day.

Eno goes off on a couple rants, most notably one on Lions kicker Jason Hanson, who hasn't decided whether to return for a 22nd season. Eno kind of wishes Hanson would no longer be the Lions kicker (tune in to find out why).

Eno sorta wishes Jason Hanson (above) would go away

Through it all, Big Al does his usual fine job of steering the ship, which includes his riff on the NBA's All-Star Weekend; discussion about Justin Verlander's pending free agency; and Big Al even suggests the Tigers should consider bringing closer Jose Valverde back if the price is right.

The guys also talk about Reggie Bush-to-the-Lions, Matthew Stafford's contract and much more.

There's also "Whose Birthday Is It?" (a Lions Snuggie is at stake) and "Jerk of the Week."

It all starts at 7pm ET HERE.

Tonight: Just Eno and Big Al, riffing!

After taking a week off to watch the Super Bowl, The Knee Jerks are back, recording last night for tonight's download!

No guest tonight so Eno and Big Al could get caught up with the following: Super Bowl XLVII (as Eno wonders if Jim Harbaugh is TOO intense); the Lions release of Titus Young (no surprise), Kyle vanden Bosch (also no surprise) and Stephen Peterman (mild surprise); the rebuilding challenge in front of GM Martin Mayhew, and how far the team is from serious contention. Then it's the Tigers---specifically Jhonny Peralta being linked (possibly) to PED use, the effect of Felix Hernandez's huge contract on pitchers like Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, and the future of the team in general with so many (potentially) big contracts to dole out in the near future.

The show wraps up with discussion of the Tayshaun Prince/Austin Daye for Jose Calderon trade, Prince's legacy as a Piston, and the injury to big man Dre Drummond. The boys also talk some Big Ten hoops!

As usual, there is "Whose Birthday Is It?" (a box set of the TV series "Mannix" is at stake) and "Jerk of the Week." It all starts at 7pm ET HERE.
