Millen is the worst ya. I would like to throw C. Peterson (KC) out there. People have been calling for his head the last 3 years up here.

Mike Brown is too much of an ego to hire a GM, but he has to be the worst freakin Owner/GM around.

Cheap and unambitious

Kudos to the uberdesigner 'soty' for the sig!

I actually think Al "Crypt Keeper" Davis is worse than Millen.

Dude drafter a kicker . . . . A KICKER in the 1st round. Paid Javon Walker $55 million to suck. He hires terrible coaches, and when he gets a decent one, burns him out. People are talking about Kiffen about to get fired. That would be sayonara to the 4th coach in 6 years. He frequently makes terrible draft picks, . . . and he can't be fired. Lions fans have hope at least that Millen can lose his job. Al Davis has to die for Raider fans to see the sun again.

Worst yet, he looks just like the scary preacher dude from Poltergeist 2.

Yes.

He is all about the money, we were win less in the 90's but he was making a profit.

Millen - He has drafted 3 NFL quality players since 2003: Roy Williams, Calvin Johnson, and Ernie Sims - possibly Kevin Smith too. Thats it. This past draft he took Cherelius with the first rd pick - and out of the 8 or so offensive linemen drafted in the 1st rd this yr, guess which one wasnt a starter for their team to start the season. Cherelius coldnt even beat out George Frickin Foster at RT. Thats simply embarrassing.

The lack of talent on the Lions roster is depressing. It has actually gotten worse since Marinell took over.

no - you heard that wrong - this is the Lions breakUP year - as in trade away anything of value outside of CJ and start over. Seriously though - the lack of talent on the Lions is staggering - how could it have gotten this bad? Its not like a high draft pick and a couple good FA acquisitions are going to matter all that much next yr either. Were talking many years away before they can think about the playoffs.

start drafting offensive and defensive lineman and work your way out...

I though PHI might be interested in Roy Williams after this year, but I think that is becoming less of a possibility. Maybe for a 2nd rounder, but not a 1st.
thx
