Millen Totally Disconnected From Lions Fans
It's one thing to go 31-83 over such an extended period of time. It's another to act as if you don't understand why fans are upset about it.
That's what I took out of Millen's odd comments to Lions beat writers Thursday. The primary tendency of people around here is to be fair. That's one thing. It's another to be playing them for fools.
Whatever the Lions are doing in practice isn't working. They have lost nine of their last 10 games. They have gotten smoked in their first two games this season.
To act as if that is irrelevent is ridiculous.
Millen has not only lost at an incredible clip, he has never understood this town. There is a total disconnect between him and the fans. It's cost the Lions mightily lately at the box office. Their reputation is the worst it has ever been.
And yet, somehow, Millen took it too a new low Thursday.
- I do think Michigan State will beat Notre Dame Saturday. Notre Dame's offense had just 260 yards total offense against Michigan and couldn't stop the Wolverines' running attack. I don't see the Spartans turning the ball over at home. Nor do I see the Fighting Irish stopping Javon Ringer.
- With no obvious choice for the American League MVP, does Miguel Cabrera deserve consideration given his statistics? No, because those numbers are mostly empty. Where was he when the pennant race was on?
- I was surprised how well Freddy Garcia pitched Wednesday. I think the Tigers could benefit by signing him for next season. Just wonder how much interest he will draw from other clubs.
