Not so good news... :wink:
I liked Millen, at least as the Lions GM. ::razz:

Fans seem not to be that sure about the Lions next future, but are happy about the move.

Have a nice day,

The Matt Millen era is over in Detroit.

The embattled Lions team president and chief executive officer is leaving the position, his wife told ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

FOXSports.com first reported Wednesday that Millen had been removed from his position. It was unclear whether he had been fired or had resigned, according to the report.

The move comes two days after Bill Ford Jr., the son of team owner William Clay Ford, publicly said he would have fired Millen if he had the authority to do so.

The Lions are 31-84 under Millen. But until this point, the Lions have resisted widespread demands from fans seeking Millen's ouster.

According to the report, Millen had informed a number of employees about the change on Wednesday morning and had large packing boxes in his office.


I think we all agree that this was long over due.

I was hoping they would keep him for another 20 years or so. That would guarentee us some free wins!

Combined the threads and renamed it so that we don't have an new thread added.

Maybe the Vikes will hire Millen to join their triangle of authority.. or whatever the heck they coined it. :lol:

Well considering he should have been canned years ago.. does it really matter? :lol:

As long as he keeps his twinkle toes out of Green Bay.. and the Lions don't decide to hire a competent GM.. it is just semantics isn't it.

What do you mean, Alan? He is/was a man of great football-knowledge and he always was able to communicate that knowledge. ::razz:

uffda udfa (32m) : This is the 6th straight game we've faced someone for the 2nd time. We learn.
uffda udfa (33m) : Aaron: I like our role. I like our chances. (said he relishes being an underdog)
uffda udfa (39m) : Aaron alludes to fake crowd noise at Georgia Dome for Sunday.
uffda udfa (1h) : So, to recap. Losing streak "just the way it is", winning streak "astronomical feat". #Balanced
uffda udfa (1h) : Ironically, he called the turn around "astronomical" not just the way it is in the NFL. #Don'tMissTheIrony
uffda udfa (1h) : Ted tells Demovsky the Packers weren't underachieving when 4-6. Just the way it is in the NFL????
Zero2Cool (5h) : Only time I recall getting annoyed is when they beat a single topic over and over and over.
Pack93z (5h) : Most yes... Heller seems to get it more so... diversity in his coverage... but seemingly can highlight the pressing issues properly.
Zero2Cool (5h) : I'm kind of in the boat that they all are babblying boonies.
Pack93z (5h) : God bless it... Bill Michaels can be a stubborn SOB at times... love his Packers coverage, still think he is a buffoon at times.
Zero2Cool (6h) : Jordy Nelson Named PFWA Comeback Player of the Year
Zero2Cool (7h) : Carter is predicitng the end is in ATL for Packers.
Porforis (7h) : Or I could just completely miss the part where that was Cris Carter.
Porforis (7h) : Careful there. Don't you want to predict a Packers loss just in case?
Zero2Cool (8h) : @criscarter80 :Every fairy tale comes to an end, and this is where the magic carpet ride stops in the ATL.
Zero2Cool (8h) : McCarthy: "JC Tretter actually had surgery Tuesday. He won't be available this week"
Zero2Cool (9h) : Crosby is fine now. Full Participant in practice Thursday
Porforis (10h) : What I'm more worried about at this point is WR injuries and Crosby being sick. Who'd be the backup if Crosby can't go?
Zero2Cool (10h) : We do have hope. Our secondary has improved. Also, he had to throw 80% to get 1 point up. That won't happen again.
Zero2Cool (10h) : I like to tease sometimes.
uffda udfa (10h) : Only 80%? :). We lost by one given that stat? Wish we had hope of tightening up.
uffda udfa (10h) : Z, u should tell everyone who Quintorris is. Quintorris Lopez Jones, better known as Julio.
Zero2Cool (10h) : Matt Ryan completed 80% of his passes against Packers in October.
uffda udfa (10h) : McGinn goes full on attack mode dismissing the notion of "Packers people". Harsh.
uffda udfa (10h) : McGinn says John Dorsey likely to be next Packers GM.
Zero2Cool (13h) : Boom! Davante Adams says last year's ankle injury "more difficult to deal with'
uffda udfa (16h) : Packers brass potentially leaving? Not worthy of discussing. Pressure Cooker? Never enough talk about them.
Zero2Cool (21h) : Put Quintorris in a pressure cooker.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Back to football: Julio says he's going to play Sunday. Did NOT say he wouldn't be limited in the game.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Anyone ever used their dishwasher to make their Thanksgiving turkey?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite Ronnie Milsap song? Smokey Mountain Rain or Any Day Now?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Favorite GM candidate... Wolf or Gutekunst?
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : I'd rather sit them than play them too compromised.
uffda udfa (19-Jan) : Yeah, Z. More pressure cooker talk and smoked turkeys.
Zero2Cool (19-Jan) : If this were a regular-season game, Nelson, Adams and Allison probably would not play, MM says.
