Several media outlets are reporting that Matt Millen is leaving his post as the Detroit Lions’ president and general manager.
All I can say is… it’s about time. Under Millen’s watch, which extends back to 2001, the Lions have an NFL-worst record of 31-84. What’s worse is that, while showing flickering promise at times, the Lions have not shown any discernible improvement this decade.
Lions fans have worn paper bags over their heads and have actually organized protests outside the stadium as well as a “walk-out” in which a large group of fans have gotten out of their seats and left the stadium.
As Bears fans, this is not good news to hear because Millen’s removal as president and GM is the first of many steps that leads to the Lions becoming a better football team, however distant into the future that may be.
