It's Hard to Imagine Why

News Item: Detroit Lions fire Matt Millen

Gee, seven years, a 31-84 record, one playoff game, and constant demands from fans for his ouster? Why in the world would they fire him? Yes, in his tenure as GM, Millen got more contract extensions than playoff appearances. I remember Michael Wilbon going on PTI and saying something along the lines of "I like Matt Millen, but this isn't working out." That was in 2003, I believe. Now that his career as a shitty executive is over, Millen can go back to being a shitty broadcaster.
