Bad, bad Karma for Sunday

Ford Field is not the place to be on Sunday. Keep the children and the families away. Its going to be a war zone. Our fans are in an absolute snit, and they will be undertaking every measure of protest that they can....

For example.


  • Contraband Fire Millen signs/Civil Disobedience
  • Making noise when WE have the ball on 3rd down
  • Rooting for the Red Wings
  • Booing loudly
  • Heavy drinking
  • Fights.
Its going to be ugly and negative and bad.

If you get a chance, listen to Dick Jauron's presser from yesterday. Beyond the annoying habit of talking like he is talking to an audience of people for whom English is not their first language, it was very amusing. On the Ticket they said that he is trying to make sure he isn't the coach next year, and my comment is he might be going overboard a little. I think he's gotten the job done. He says he has no idea how to fix the problems, he's going to talk to the NFL about the safety call (actually, he's going to have someone do it), and lauds the play of our kicker and punter.

So we got that going for us.

Finally, here's some notes on Killer's radio show yesterday. All of its a good read, but I am calling out the last two snippets...

Killer believes Millen will hire someone closer to his football philosophy, and who will hire coaches Millen thinks will be good. Mariucci had assistants who don't belong in the league. Andy Sugarman was just not a TE coach. It was a good old boy network. It goes with Pat Morris. His system works with some people, but not with these guys. Millen is going to put guys through the ringer, and trust assistants' decisions.

Killer says Mariucci will do broadcasting with ESPN. Mariucci was cheered at the MSU game. He's going to do TV, count his money, and relax for a while.

Millen taking a stronger hand in things....that will make the Lions Nation sleep well tonight.
