Default Matt Millen Fired

If the reports are correct, this happened about five or six years too late.

he should have been fired 3-4 years ago. he Might be a good front office guy but his evaluation of talent is awful.

I just don't understand why this move wasn't made after last season. Really what kind of change can be made 3 weeks into the season? The draft is done and there are no free agents to sign. It's the same thing firing a coach now. Bring in a guy 3 weeks into the season and install a new system. Basically they are waiving the white flag less than a quarter of the way into the season.

not really like firing a coach. make the front office change now, to start to set up your next draft. your scouts are looking at players now, they have to make recommendations to whoever to take the team in the next direction.

That would be even better, that he wasn't fired based on the performance of the Lions!

I always thought he was pretty good on the radio broadcasts of MNF with Marv Albert.

i don't understand how he lasted as long as he did. the lions tho were hapless before millen, and probably will still be now that he's gone.
maybe they should fire the owner.
one playoff win in 44 years. that's pathetic.

I would say that would make him bad at the business side.

I was really looking forward to see which wide reciever he would take in the first round this year.
