3. The Lions Hire Matt Millen

Date: 1/8/2001
Dumbass Move By: William Clay Ford Sr. and the Detroit Lions
You were wondering where all the Lions moves were, huh? We had to go back to the source on this one. How do fix up an ailing franchise? According to the Detroit Lions, you go out and hire a guy with no prior front office experience. In 2001 the team's front office decided to go with former linebacker turned commentator Matt Millen in an attempt to right Detroit's sinking ship. To no one's surprise, the Lions continued on a decline and the Millen experiment ended after SEVEN YEARS! Because it only took seven consecutive years of losing and a record of 31–81 and .277 winning percentage (worst in the league son!) to figure out dude needed the boot.
