Now that the smoke has cleared and many Lions fans are just getting over their hangover from a night of celebrating the firing of Matt Millen, it’s time to face reality. The Lions still are a bad football team and they won’t be getting better anytime soon. The firing was a great decision and it had to be done, but I’m afraid too much damage has been done. There’s just no way you overcome 84 losses in Millen’s 115-game tenure overnight. To make matter’s worse, there are only a handful of players on the current roster that are of any value, so Millen left the cupboard pretty bare.
So what will it take to turn this around? PATIENCE…….and a lot of it. Lions fans must realize that yes, the man that got you in this situation is gone, but turning it around will take time. But look on the bright side, it can’t get much worse.
