Fifteen minutes to delight in Detroit, despair in D.C.

The Lions lead the Redskins, 13-7, through three quarters.

If the home team can hold on for 15 more minutes, the Lions will have their first win since December 23, 2007, when they defeated the Chiefs at Ford Field, 25-20.

And it will be only the second win since November 4, 2007, when the Lions somehow blasted the Broncos, 44-7, to push their record to 6-2.

So after starting the 2007 season at 6-2, the Lions have gone 1-25.


And, amazingly, the man who made the mess has two different jobs — with ESPN and NFLN — covering both college football and pro football.

Though Matt Millen is good on television, I simply can’t listen to anything he has to say without wondering whether the guy knows anything at all, or whether he’s simply good at sounding like he does.

    Way to get a head start on deflecting your Redskins SuperBowl pick.

    Thanks for jinxing us, Florio.
    As a long time Lions fan, I can feel the collapse coming. This is Detroit we’re talking about, all we do is invent good music, bad cars, and new ways to lose.

    Florio’s cousin Josh, a Redskins fan, is a chumpzilla.

    That was bought, If I was a Lions fan I would be mad, sort of. At least it was a wan?

    We can’t even win at having a losing streak. We were 7 games away from being the most putrid team of all time!
    Just kidding, sort of. Go Lions!

    Surely Florio’s Redskins Super Bowl pick proves, once and for all, that the guy is a fraud.

    How soon will Zorn clean out his office ?

    Couldn’t have happened to a better team!

    If you can’t listen to Matt Millen for what he has done, then you can’t listen to Trent Dilfer or Tony Dungy or any number of idiots on BSPN.
    I clearly recall Millen’s days as a great linebacker with many rings, both pro and college.
