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.
I'm sorry this is nothing like those other cases in my view. If I'm him I don't want to waste my time with a team that is clearly not going to be competitive before they fire me anyway. In the NFL you get two maybe three years.
