People are literally high-fiving each other in my office right now. Bring on the new generation of sucktitude for the Lions! Promote this thread!

Kudos to the Lions for doing their bit to redress the balance.

I'm shocked! See what happens when you miss rehearsal?

Now they can go back to their glory days of Fontes and Sanders when they would get into the playoffs at 9-7, only to get crushed by the Packers.

He's actually thought this way for a few years now and even told his father in private (Lions reporters have intimated this on the radio) that Millen should have been fired. My guess is he probably didn't want to publicly embarrass his father by saying it to the media, but I guess even Jr. had his breaking point. (edited by Reverend J Shaft on 24.9.08 1249)

I'm shocked! Millen's out, and that's great. He was an inept chimp as a general manager. But Ford Senior is still around, alive, and kicking. Don't think that removing a mole is going to cure the Lions' cancer. Michigan against the SEC: 20-5-1 (7-3 in bowl games)

AIM: # 13 Posted on 24.9.08 1343.19 | Instant Rating: 3.79 The Lions still have Jon Kitna. There's zero point in having all those high end recievers and a schlub at QB. And you'd think that Millen of all people would've known the importance of a strong offensive line. "Laugh and the world laughs with you. Frown and the world laughs at you." -Me.

Many times it's better for ownership to have a consistent fall guy. Makes it easier for ineptness to roll downhill FLEA Demonstrations are a drag. Besides, we're much too high

Anything is possible. Life is good. Change can happen. The Lions will still suck, but there is a small, tiny, little sliver of hope. Maybe now the Lions can draft someone, not a receiver, who will still be with the team 3 years later. I'm happy.

Matt Millen: Head Coach of the Oakland Raiders? Wait, you wouldn't put that past Al? Congratulations to the Lions fans for being rid of the imbecile who drove the franchise into the ground for a little under a decade. Unfortunately, the people who gave the imbecile to you plus 4 decades of futility prior to that are still in charge.

Vick isn't the answer, but neither is drafting Clausen or Bradford. I don't think either will be great pros, but we'll see. McCoy I think has a better shot at long term success, but he can likely be had much lower in the draft anyway.
