Media ‘Quotes’ on Fired Exec Matt Millen

Clark Judge, CBSsports.com:”Matt Millen tried to make the Lions better, the best he knew how. But that was the problem. He didn’t know how.”

Foxsports.com: “The Edsel. The Pinto. The Millen. After almost eight seasons, Detroit has finally recalled this lemon.”

Bill Ford Jr; Lions Front Office: “The fans deserve better.”

Judy Battista, N.Y. Times: “Matt Millen, who presided over some of the most unsuccessful seasons and misguided drafts in Lions history … had enjoyed seemingly inexplicable job security since joining the team in 2001.”

Tom Curran, NBCsports.com: “The City of Detroit is in need of a new piñata this morning.”

Mitch Albom, Detroit Free Press: “By football standards, Millen should have been fired after  his second coaching hire flop”

Tom Ferda, Sports Climax: “The end of the most incompetent run of a GM in professional sports has just come to a merciful end.”

Kevin Seifert, ESPN.com “I don’t want to spoil your celebration, Lions fans, but in reality the job is only 50% completed. The next step is much less clear. … The issue is now whether the Lions can replace him with someone … more capable of rebuilding a franchise.”

Pete Prisco, CBSsports.com: “What the heck took so long?”
