Detroit Lions Cut Matt Millen

President Matt Millen was “released” by the Lions on Wednesday.  Shocking!!! And it only took 7 years for Lions’ management to figure out that he sucks at his job.  No offense to Mr. Millen, I’m sure he’s a great guy, but a football brain he’s not.  I hate to play Monday Morning Quarterback but this guy should’ve never been hired.  A former linebacker, Millen is a huge reason why this franchise has been suffering for so many years. For starters, they wasted numerous #1 draft picks (4 of last 6 years) on wide reciever after wide reciever, Mike Williams, Carlos Rogers, Calvin Johnson, Roy Williams. Their offense is run by an over-the-hill, glorified backup quarterback in John Kitna.  The running game has been in shambles since Barry Sanders retired. I won’t even get started on the defense.  How many years can you go without making it to the postseason? A 31-84 record during Millen’s tenure is simply unacceptable.  I hate to see anyone lose their job, but this might be best thing that happens to the Lions. Don’t get me wrong, the Lions are far from being contenders.  But baby steps, baby steps…
