    Well, at least our owner isn't saying that.

    I hope they keep Millen around for the next 3 decades.

    What is he going to do when the fans quit coming to the games?
    That would leave him no choice.

    I know Matt's philosophy and as the year went on, I got to know Rod much better and I could see where they'd mesh and you don't want to break up a combination like that.
    LOL.
    Yeah, you wouldn't want to break them up and risk not doing as well as last year...

    [size=13pt]They won't. Lions fans are dedicated and that's what the Fords and Millen take advantage of, unfortunately. Even before the Millen days, the Fords didn't seem too interested in their franchise. My family back home (in Detroit) are still STH-ers, keeping hope alive that their team will get it together. I(being a Bears fan) hope they don't, hahahahahaaaa!!![/size]

    Welcome to PP.O UrlsGrrl54.
    You know what they say, the enemy of my enemy is my friend.

    We can both be happy that Millen is still in Detroit.
    I significantly increases the chances for both of our teams to beat the Lions.

    We'll see more of you on 10.14 and 12.17.
    And of course the playoff game that you will have to come to Minnesota for.
