Ok, seriously, there has to be some kind of blackmail involved here, right? Millen's record since taking over the team is 24-72! And there isn't even the silver lining of a 1st overall pick, since the Lions went and beat the Cowboys last Sunday.
I thought the kicker would have been Joey Harrington coming back to Detroit and burning the Lions on their home field on Thanksgiving Day. But I guess even that isn't enough reason to turf Millen.
The first recipient of the Heisman (rhymes with Theismann) Trophy passed away at the age of 88. He also the first players drafted by the NFL, although he never played (due to the miserly nature of George Halas). FYI:
