After years of complaining, head scratching and some of the worst draft picks seen in NFL history. The Detroit Lions may finally be free. Matt Millen has reportedly been removed from his position with the Lions organization. This report is coming from Jay Glazer of FoxSports.
It is unsure if Millen was fired or if he removed himself from his position, but there is no denying that the seat he normally occupies has gotten even hotter in recent days after Bill Ford Jr. stepped forward and said he would have fired Millen.
The Lions have won only one playoff game and are an NFL-worst 31-84 since Millen took over in 2001. They have also been a model of futility on the road and Millen has gone through three head coaches, none of whom have been able to turn the Lions into a winner.
Most people will remember Millen for taking wide outs in three consecutive years when he had top five draft picks. Out of all of those wide outs taken none have really developed into a top level player and none have made the the Pro-Bowl. There is no doubt that Matt Millen is the Isiah Thomas of the NFL.
