Tonight: Did the Pistons pick the right coach? And how about that Tigers bullpen!

After a week off due to Big Al's computer blowing up, The Jerks are back to chat your ears off about Detroit sports!

It's also a "rant night," i.e. the third Monday of the month, so that means Bleacher Report's Adam Biggers stops by to go off on the Michigan quarterback situation.

Lots to talk about, as usual, and the first topic Eno and Big Al tackle is the Pistons and their new coach, Maurice Cheeks. Big Al wonders if the choice was a "safe" one by GM Joe Dumars, i.e. a "save my ass" choice. Eno says that the Pistons' current situation---nowhere near contender status---meant that the hopes that a serious big name coach coming to Detroit were mere folly.

Next, it's the Tigers and their leaky bullpen. The Jerks point out that the troubles don't stop with Jose Valverde; there are others in the pen who are not exactly free of guilt. The Jerks also touch on the inconsistent offense, the concerns over Anibal Sanchez, and the disaster that is Alex Avila.

Of course, there's also "Whose Birthday Is It?" (at stake: a $25 gift certificate to the House of Watchbands), "Jerks of the Week," and more!

It all starts at 7pm ET HERE!
