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.
ges, the year you are thinking of is the year that they had Gary Crowton as Offensive Coordinator, and he loved to open things up and just go insane offensively. IIRC that was the year that Jim Miller had a 423 yd passing game against the Vikings.
