Matt Millen has four Super Bowl rings from a 12-year playing career that included stops in Oakland San Francisco and Washington. But no one remembers that because of what he perpetrated against the Lionsfor eight years as the team's president. He was known for many things during his tenure in Detroit and none of them good. Some lowlights: - From 2001-2003 the Lions were 0-24 on the road. - The 2008 team went 0-16 (Millen was fired in Sept. 2008 but this was the roster he assembled) - Millen was ultimately responsible for using first-round picks on Joey Harrington (2002) Charles Rogers (2003) and Mike Williams (2005) all considered busts. And taking Williams it turns out was the final straw for Millen's son Matthew who punched his old man afterwards. Not so much because it was the third straight wide receiver Millen had drafted in the first round (the team selected Roy Williams in '04) but because of who the Lions passed up to get Williams. "DeMarcus Ware -- it ...

Don’t Blame Tony Romo

I don’t know how you can watch yesterday’s game and blame Tony Romo for that loss. It’s easy to get caught up in the narrative that Romo isn’t clutch, but to blame is for that loss is idiotic and lazy.  Yet to nobody’s surprise the Romo bashers were out in full force. See here and here. It’s stupid and moronic, yet it continues. There are plenty of fanbases (Houston...

Decoding Callahan: Spreading Them Out And Picking Them Apart

At the risk of burning you out on statistics from Sunday afternoon that should blow your mind, allow me this one more. The Cowboys accomplished something offensively on Sunday that is normally reserved for high school and college offenses, but almost never done in the NFL. In fact, in the last 1,000 NFL games played, I only found it one other time (going back to 2010). It is the...

Jerry Jones “So Proud Of Romo” After Tough Loss To Broncos

Jerry Jones knows what he has at quarterback. Tony Romo may not be Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, or Drew Brees, but not many are either.  What he is without a doubt is a top-notch quarterback who played the game of his life on Sunday before throwing another late game interception. Romo is who he is, and I think Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is ok with that. Jones, who may...

Seriously Romo?

What is it with quarterbacks in Texas? Last week Matt Schaub threw a game tying interception against Houston and subsequently crapped the bed in San Francisco on Sunday night. This week it was the NFL’s favourite whipping boy Tony Romo who, despite a career day, managed to revert to form and throw an interception that cost his team a game. A storyline that is all too familiar for...
