Motor City Kitties

A few weeks ago, the Detroit Lions were 6-2 and talking about playoffs. Before the traditional Thanksgiving Day game, the buzz was that if the Lions beat the Packers, that they would have a chance at winning the division. Well, in the six weeks since the Lions were 6-2, they have folded worse than any French army in recent memory. The buzz of "Restore the Roar" has been replaced with "What a pleasant purr." At least the Red Wings and Pistons are winning and the Tigers have made some major moves for next season.

The hapless Lions need to fire Millen, now. Since he became the General Manager of the Lions, they team has had the worst winning percentage in the NFL. Additionally, Millen has been the brains behind some of the worst first round draft picks ever made. Just where do Joey Harrington, Charles Rogers and Mike Williams play now? If Millen was the GM for any other NFL team, he would have been fired long ago. Until he is gone, the Lions will languish as a less than mediocre team.
