A good football weekend!

My new team, the Buffalo Bills, pulled one out with a field goal at the end of the game. 3-0 on the season.

The Spartans did a pretty effective number on Notre Dame yesterday.

It's all good!

Just tuned into the Lions and they are down 21-3 in the first half. You know, I could make a pretty good comparison between the effectiveness of Matt Millen and some editors I know, but I won't.

Marinelli has to be asking him the question another Detroit Lions coach asked about a dozen years ago: "What does a guy have to do to get fired around here."

(Update Monday morning: In the Millen era the Lions are now 8-50 in road games. It would take more than five years of 8-0 road victories to erase that deficit. Come on Mr. Ford, time for Millen to go!)

What does it take to get fired around here? Why work for Al Davis of course.

Dear Brother:

We'd take Al Davis in a heart beat. Yesterday, the son of our owner, William Clay Ford Jr., said if he was in charge, instead of his father, Matt Millen would be gone.
Unfortunately, William Clay Ford Sr. will likely give Matt Millen a contract extension just to stick a thumb in the eye of his son and all his loyal fans.
It's truly maddening.
