    ALLEN PARK, Mich. - Detroit Lions president Matt Millen has agreed to a five-year contract extension, owner William Clay Ford Sr. announced Wednesday.

    Millen, who is in the fifth and final season of his original contract, said that he agreed to the deal last month, but the announcement was delayed to avoid taking the focus off the team. The extension will run through the 2010 season.

In the past, I would have said that this was horrible. But it appears that Millen has the Lions heading in the right direction.

And anyways, what do contracts REALLY mean these days?

Lions are going to finish above .500 this year. Mike Williams = R.O.Y. Mark my words. 2 years from now they will win this division.

As a Detroiter and Lions fan, getting optimistic about anything is rather impossible. About the only praise we're allowed to say for the team is "At least we're not Cleveland."

That said, Millen's done a great job. His drafts have been excellent, and all seem to point towards making the team something. The reasons for the package not coming together yet are not his, but lie with certain players/coaches.
