Every time a certain familiar face showed up on camera Sunday during NBC's Super Bowl pregame show, Channel 4 ran a scroll at the bottom of the screen:

"Matt Millen was president of the Lions for the worst eight-year run in the history of the NFL. Knowing his history with the team, is there a credibility issue as he now serves as an analyst for NBC Sports? ..."

I really think the guy should have taken a year or 2 off. It was too close to his futility to be covering the SB this year. NBC screwed the pooch in my book even if Pat Danlick took a couple of "hard hitting" questions to him.

I had to chuckle when they listed his credentials as a participant in 4 SBs, and not as former anything.

But you know what - shame on the Lions org for employing that clown for 8 f-in years. He could only have preceeded over the worst 8 years in NFL history if the Detroit ownership didnt realize he wasnt up to the task after year 4.

Actually, there are worse analyists.

But few. Very few.

Don't know any worse GMs, though.....
