Matt Millen has three Super Bowl rings from his 12-year career as a linebacker in the NFL, but he will never be remembered for that. What he will be remembered for is the 31-97 record that the Detroit Lions posted in the 8 years that he was president of the franchise. Millen was eventually fired (or resigned if you believe the PR spin) in 2008, when the team finished an astounding 0-16, after which he returned to the broadcast booth much to the nation’s joy.
Now that John Elway is following in Millen’s player-to-personnel footsteps as the new executive vice president of the Denver Broncos, the man who oversaw the Lions’ Decade of Destruction is finally willing to admit that he sucked.
Boo this man, Detroit Free Press… BOO HIM!
“I hope John does better than I did, because I stunk at it,” Millen told the paper.
