You're killing me Ken, but it's so true. I'm mad at michigan sports in general! I was at UofM during the Bo days, was at the parade when the TIgers won the World Series and then there's the Lions. Now U of M stinks worse than memory serves.All the pieces are in place for the Lions to make history.
The ironic thing is that Matt Millen will not be around to enjoy it. Much of the credit for this achievement lies at his feet. These are his players and his coaches.
I hope that Detroit will not forget him amid all of the 'ticker tape' in honor of their record breaking season.
In my mind, this will establish the Lions as the worst team in American professional sports history, just nudging out the 2003 Tigers.
Way to go Detroit!
Urban legend. Sanders retired in 1999; the tragedy of the Millen hiring happened in 2001.Recently I heard that, behind the scenes, it was Millen who drove Sanders to an early retirement. Is this just an urban legend?
Yeah. They are saying Detroit is the first team to start 0-15. I thought the Saints did that in 1980 (the year of the Aints with the bags over the head, etc.) but apparently it was only 0-14.And I thought the old New Orleans Aints were bad.
I did always think Kramer was underrated. Maybe they should bring back Wayne Fontes too! See here for the story I was referring to.
[FONT=Arial, Helvetica]It got so ugly fans mockingly chanted "Jo-ey! Jo-ey!" in the half-empty stadium in reference to New Orleans' third-string quarterback Joey Harrington, who was the first of many first-round busts Detroit drafted during an eight-season stretch (31-95) that is the NFL's worst since 1950.

It was gratuitous. It was no-class...LOL Rob Parker was hilarious. That last question was horrible!
I hope not.Of course, MSU will probably now break with tradition and upset my Dawgs tomorrow in the Capital One Bowl.
