Lions Can Trace Futility to NFL Drafts

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

The Detroit Lions have lost 75 percent of their games since Matt Millen began running the franchise, in large part because nearly half of his first-round picks have been busts.

I find it ironic that a South florida paper has the nerve to be critical of a team on the way up when their own hometown team is the joke of the league. Say what you will about matt millen but he did not trade #2 picks for AJ Feeley and a crippled Dante Culpepper. He also did not trade two #1 picks for Rickey the Bong Williams. As a Lions fan I know my team is in capable hands unlike your beloved Dolphins. Oh by the way we have your # 5 for Joey I'm not on the team anymore Harrington. HA HA HA Chumpeys!!!

We're still searching for why? It starts with Lions' inability to recognize talent. Charles Rogers, Joey Harrington, Jeff Backus, Kalimba Edwards and the list goes on. What speaks the loudest is when we sign Backus and Edwards to long term deals. If Millen is ultimately responsible for talent, then he needs to take the fall for it.

“Huh?”
