The latest episode is available for download! Adam Biggers, the Lions' new coach and more!

In case you missed it, the latest episode of "The Knee Jerks" is available for download!

Adam Biggers of Bleacher Report returns, as promised, for a second consecutive week of ranting. In Adam's crosshairs this week are Michigan and Michigan State basketball---and the state's crazy drivers he's seen on the road this winter.

The Jerks discuss the Lions' new head coach, Jim Caldwell and the machinations that went on prior to his hiring. Also talked about is what Big Al refers to as the "Tony Dungy Mafia," and what impact it had on the hire.

Will Caldwell be the man to turn the franchise around? Listen to hear what Eno and Big Al think!

After football, the talk switches to MLB's expanded use of replay starting in 2014. Big Al likes it; Eno is not so sure.

All that, plus the Max Scherzer contract situation (especially in light of Clayton Kershaw's new deal), "Whose Birthday Is It?" (at stake: Florsheim shoes), "Jerk of the Week" and more!

It can all be downloaded HERE.

Tonight! "Adam Rants," the Lions' coaching search, A-Roid, the Pistons and more!

It's been awhile since we brought you Bleacher Report's Adam Biggers and one of his rants, so to make it up, we're giving you Adam in back-to-back weeks, starting tonight!

"Adam Rants" will feature Adam going off on Michigan State basketball and the situation at Michigan with its new OC, Doug Nussmeier. It's must-hear stuff!

After Adam's segment, Eno and Big Al take on the tale of Justin Verlander and his "core muscle" surgery. Will it have an adverse effect? Is this a sign of an almost-31-year-old pitcher's body starting to break down? Eno talks Big Al off the ledge on this one.

Lots more on the docket: baseball Hall of Fame voting; the Lions' coaching search; A-Roid; and the maddening Pistons.

All this and more, plus "Whose Birthday is It?" (at stake: a Longines Symphony watch) and "Jerks of the Week."

It all can be found here!

Welcome to 2014 and another episode of The Knee Jerks!

Happy New Year!

The Knee Jerks are back after taking two weeks off to celebrate the holidays.

No guest tonight, as Eno and Big Al have more than enough to talk about, all by themselves.

First it's the Lions, and the spiral that led to their coaching search.

Will Jim Schwartz, who's rumored to be the new DC of the Cleveland Browns, get another HC job in the NFL? What went wrong? Why wasn't he the right guy to take the Lions to the next level? Who will be the Lions' new HC? Why is Matthew Stafford being involved in the interview process?

After the Lions talk, the guys talk Winter Classic, MSU and U-M football, and more.

Don't forget "Whose Birthday Is It?" (at stake: a lifetime ticket to the Bob-Lo boat) and "Jerk of the Week"!

It all starts at 7:00pm ET HERE.
