    Firing a GM will not immediately restore the Lions to respectability in the NFC North.
    They still have no QB, questionable RBs and a pourous run defense.
    And, based upon the hiring of Millen and his retention through the lack of success over the past 9 years (or whatever), it's not a given that Ford Sr. will hire somebody good to take Millen's place.

    I was hoping they would give him anothe 8-10 years to turn it around.

    Oh well, it was good while it lasted.

    Dude - you're clearly not paying attention.

    Kitna is hurt.
    The Lions starting QB is Dan Orlovsky.
    Ewwwww.

    The RBs are shite.
    Hence the reason they brought in Shaun Freaking Alexander last week for a tryout.

    It's also hard to overcome a culture of loserdom.
    Just ask the LA Clippers.

    Any team dumb enough to pick up Foley will pick up Millen!
    LOL
    weren't we the ones dumb enough to pick up foley?
    Why must you defend everything this FO does....to the point of making your self look like a yes man.

    Man, this is/was overdue.

    They suck now, have sucked for a million years, and will suck for the foreseeable future.

    Re: Millen out as Lions GM

    So I've heard that Millen was decent as Lions GM. What do you guys think about going out and getting him? He added some pretty good players over the years. I say sign him up!




















    To avoid any confusion, yes, I'm being facetious.
