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 don't have a problem with it either way. Plenty of soon to be pro athletes get new cars with defered payment arrangements. And if he did decide to accept a loan from an agent (the most likely scenario for how he'd have money already)
