Somebody has surely thought of this already, but here’s a good rule of thumb: whatever former Detroit Lions GM Matt Millen says, the opposite is true. If Millen says it’ll be a sunny day, grab your umbrella. And so I was almost grateful in a way when Millen weighed in on this Dez Bryant business, because now that he’s taken one side, I’m quite comfortable taking the other.
Millen, now an ESPN analyst, said such questions are not abnormal during interviews with rookie prospects. “We’re making a big deal out of something that’s probably not that big a deal,” he said.
The former Lions president also acknowledged that he may have asked similar questions when he was interviewing draft prospects. –USA Today, via MJD.
Millen may have asked similar questions? I guess it really isn’t that big a deal to him. That said, you can’t get in front of a tape recorder and say, “Yeah, we really had to know if his mom was a whore.” I guess Jeff Ireland was hard up for a little stinky on his hangdown. I’m sure Millen can relate. That mustache is like birth control for his face.
