NBC is the worst network in history to air NFL games.

-Matt Millen the new analyst? WTF! WTF! Triple WTF?

I give Millen props for acting like a man, he didn't deflect any blame in his interview about the Lions. He admitted he didn't really know what he was doing and took all the blame. That may seem obvious but all the same it takes a man to do that in front of a national audience.

Yea Millin did pretty good. But wasn't he a journalist before he got the lions job.

I thought that Millen interview was BRUTAL. I would have hated to try and answer those questions about myself. I thought he handled it great.

HE CREATED THE ONLY TEAM TO EVER GO 0-16!

What did you expect, "So Matt, what are your vacation plans this summer?"?

Of course it has to be a hard interview.

Maybe so, but he didn't have to do it, and he could have deflected the blame. It's a damned shame people with real power can't take responsibility like that. I had lost respect for Millen over the years, but he won it back and then some by standing up like that.

No one will really think poo about us unless we win the Super Bowl.

Even though we play at home, I really believe we have to battle the refs too because we may not be a favorable ratings draw from a networks perspective.

Then again I may be too paranoid about that, it just seems when we play teams like the Cowboys and favored by the media teams we get screwed a lot.

I prefer to hate CBS.

NBC, since they end up covering both conferences, do a crappy-to-pisspoor job of analysis vs the NFC- or AFC-specific games... about as well as FOX or CBS do the intra-league games themselves.

I really do believe refs are often affected by Vegas. There really should be a system to financially repremand refs for blatantly incorrect calls
