    It appeared to me that Joe Buck's daughters hate him, it would suck to be Joe Buck.
    I bet Joe's daughters have the poster of Moss mooning the cheesedicks haning in their bedrooms, just to piss him off.

    I've never been a Joey Harrington fan, not even during his college days.
    It was fun to see him pull off a W in Kittytown though.

    Lions | Team continues to struggle under Millen's control
    Thu, 23 Nov 2006 21:57:35 -0800

    The Associated Press reports the Detroit Lions are an NFL-worst 23-68 since team president Matt Millen took control of the team in 2001. The Lions lost 27-10 to the Miami Dolphins Thursday, Nov. 23, prompting many fans to voice their frustration with Millen in the form of "Fire Millen!" chants. LB Boss Bailey said, "Matt's not down here playing football, we are. If they want to chant 'Fire Millen,' they should be chanting to fire the whole damn team. All Matt does is bring in players, and every year we talk about how much talent we have. So it should be on us. This isn't about Matt."

    Yesterday was the first full game I've seen Romo play in.
    Fun to watch, no doubt.
    Tough times for Chuckie though.

    LIONS ENCOURAGE BOOING OF JOEY

    There's an old saying in Tennessee, I know it's in Texas, probably in Tennessee:
    He who laughs last . . . is the last one to be laughing.


    Anyway, former Lions quarterback Joey Harrington is the last one to laughing now, after a return to Ford Field resulted in a victory by his new team, the Dolphins, over the franchise that made him the No. 3 overall pick in the 2002 draft.

    But based on reports in the Miami Herald and at Mlive.com, it appears that the Lions went out of their way to promote booing of Harrington on Thursday.

    For example, the Dolphins asked for their defense to be introduced, but the public address announcer called out Harrington's name prior to the game, prompting a loud chorus of boos.
    And the video operator at Ford Field repeatedly displayed images of Harrington, which would provoke more boos for a crowd that otherwise was silent in yet another miserable performance by the home team, which saw a 10-0 lead melt into a 27-10 loss.

    'I don't have a lot of respect for what they did,' Dolphins coach Nick Saban said regarding the crowd's treatment of Harrington. "He's been respectful to them, and he did a good job today.

    "I don't really see where there's a place for that in sports.
    Nothing has to be that personal.'

    In our view, it's yet another reason for the Ford family to sever ties with Millen.
    He's not the General Manager of the team; he's the President and CEO.
    So the buck stops on his TV tray whenever anyone in the organization does something stupid, classless, or uncalled for.

    A year ago, security at Ford Field relentlessly chased and ultimately jacked up a guy who dared to display a grocery bag with the words "Fire Millen" scrawled on it.
    Now, the same staff at the same stadium goes out of its way to encourage harassment of a guy who finally played a good game in the venue -- possibly because he was playing against the team for which he used to play.

    And don't be surprised if there's renewed talk about change in the wake of Thursday's loss.
    Regardless of the booing brouhaha, the Lions were embarrassed again on Thanksgiving Day -- and this time it came at the hands of one of their biggest draft-day failures.

    Remember this.
    It was a poor performance on Thanksgiving in 2005 that resulted in coach Steve Mariucci getting fired; in our view, this year's version of the now-annual Detroit Lions Turkey Day turkey sh-t performance should be the last act of a dreadful five-year reign.
