Detroit Lions to form Gridiron Voltron!

It’s my birthday week and I figured why not have some fun with the latest installment of my blog cast. The Detroit Lions play at Cleveland Browns on my birthday, Sunday, November 21st.

Yes, that means it’s time fo the Detroit Lions to collaborate with the Voltron Lions to form Gridiron Voltron! When the Detroit Lions unleash their “Voltron Force” rushing attack offense complimented by their defense and special teams, they’ll capture their “WIN,” one game at time, in all three phases of the game, this NFL season! Go Lions! Let’s ROAR OUT with the “WIN” in week 11! Let’s do this!


I know that Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams, who watches “anime” all day, knows what the Voltron Lions and Voltron Force are all about. Detroit Lions, let’s show the world what our Lions are all about in week 11. Let’s do this, one game at a time. Let’s improve our record! Was electrifying to watch our Detroit “Voltron Force” Lions rushing attack offense in week 10 at Pittsburg Steelers led by Detroit Lions’ D’Andre Swift, Jermar Jefferson, and Godwin Igwebuike. I will be praying for our injured running backs Jermar Jefferson and Jamaal Williams and our other injured players for their healing and recovery. Will Lions head coach Dan Campbell and coaching staff sooner than later activate running back Craig Reynolds from the practice squad to the active roster to help us capture “wins” this season? Let’s do it!

As a child of the 80s, I grew up watching the Detroit Lions and Voltron when running back Barry Sanders was on fire and Eddie Murphy as “Axel Foley” donned the iconic NFL Detroit Lions “Beverly Hills Edition” Varsity Jacket.

I recently placed my order of the Detroit Lions Homage x Starter Gridiron Jacket that features the retro Lions logo on the front left chest and throwback “LIONS” wordmark on the back so that I can support and root for the Detroit Lions when they form Gridiron Voltron. I received a text that it has been shipped. I hope it arrives in time for the week 11 Detroit Lions game at Cleveland Browns.

    I remember Barry Sanders. He was smooth. Very smooth. He looked like he was in-flight whenever he had the football. You're about as nuts with your Detroit Lions as I use to be with the Oakland Raiders back when Al Davis was still sane.

    Jason, you can defeat anything that comes against you and succeed at anything the Lord calls you to do! I have seen you overcome so much opposition to become the man you are today! Happy birthday, man!!!! You encourage and bless so many people, and you do it all for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank you for reminding me that we still belong to a loving, perfect Father, even when I was at one of my lowest points in life. I pray the Lord makes this the happiest, healthiest, most prosperous year you’ve had yet! In the name of our glorious Jesus, amen🙏🏼🌻🕊
