Tonight: Adam Rants, and the Lions are OLD!! Plus, how about those Tigers?

Adam Biggers is, depending on where he falls on the depth chart on any given week, our Fourth or Fifth Jerk. Regardless, he is with us tonight for a college football-drenched edition of "Adam Rants"!

Adam, from Bleacher Report, will talk at length about U-M and MSU's opening week wins. Adam is satisfied with Michigan's performance, but not so much with the Spartans'.

Adam also touches on "Johnny Football," aka Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M, and why Adam thinks that the kid is getting some bad advice, or isn't following the good advice that he is getting.

After Adam, the Jerks talk pro football, and how the Lions are now, officially, the oldest team in the NFL in terms of average player age. Eno says that is a bi-product of poor drafting and having to sign veteran free agents late in training camp.

The Jerks also discuss the recent settlement by the NFL of a class action lawsuit regarding how the league handled concussions back in the day with former players. It was a $765 million payout, but the league's annual revenue is $9 billion, so did the NFL get off cheap? The guys think so.

Finally, it's Tigers talk, as the Jerks handicap the AL Central race, discuss September call-ups and wonder why Andy Dirks has become the fans' new whipping boy. The boys also touch on the firing of Toledo Mud Hens manager Phil Nevin.

All that and more, including "Jerk of the Week" and "Whose Birthday Is It?" (at stake: a year's supply of Boboli pizza dough!). It all starts at 7:00pm ET HERE.
