Joe Theismann Calls Out Matt Millen For Some Reason

Monday, January 14, 2008


Okay, Joe Theismann is really starting to annoy me now. Not like when he was on Monday Night Football annoying, but annoying me for randomly talking trash about someone else at least once a month for the past six months or so. It was Tony Kornheiser multiple times for the first few months and Jaworski most recently, but now he's randomly targeting bad GMs. He's now calling out Detroit GM Matt Millen for some reason.

From the Detroit Free Press.....

Does Joe Theismann want Matt Millen's job?

Theismann said on Chicago radio station WSCR that Detroit Lions president Matt Millen "hasn't helped former players get into management because he's done a lousy job."

Theismann, who was recently axed by ESPN from "Monday Night Football" and replaced by Ron Jaworski, also said: "Could I or anybody do a better job (with the Lions)? I don't know. But it would be a wonderful challenge."
That's about the most random thing I've ever heard. I'm pretty sure you don't want Joe Theeeeeesman in charge of anything, but I could be wrong. And while he's wrong for bringing this up out of the blue he's right about one thing....anybody could do a better job than Millen.

Taking over for Matt Millen would be a 'wonderful challenge' (Detroit Free Press)

I wish that Joe Theisman would have started a trend where former Notre Damers could no longer get a job in television. It could have started with Lou Holtz.

Beating up Millen never gets old.

He is atrocious. I think the Lions will be even worse next year.

I'm wondering why you never used the "Millen staring deeply in to Champagne Joey's eyes" pic for caption of the day???

I think Joe Hteisman needs to shut up and istead of trahing Matt Millen's job he needs to focous more on why no network out there is intersted in hireing him.

"That's about the most random thing I've ever heard."

Not as random as Millen some years ago going on that same Chicago radio station to call out an "unnamed player" for not having any testicles.

You meant a lot of things, like putting the bottle down before you type.

As a Lions fan I think ripping on Matt Millen should be a mandatory part of every pregame, halftime, and postgame show. A former tennis player could do a better job than that bag of shit. Maybe if the Lions were made fun of more often Ford would wake from his coma and do something about the problem.

When it comes to ripping people after he got fired, Baby Boomer Esiason makes Theismann look like a piker. Nothing could ever top Baby Boomer's snit fits.
