This is off of profootballtalk.com. I went and looked this up elsewhere because while I love profootballtalk.com it is heavy on rumor. This sounds legit. I don't get it.


Story below ...


A league source tells us that Lions offensive coordinator Mike Martz is actively looking for similar work with other NFL teams.


This strongly suggests that Martz knows that he'll soon be relieved of his duties in Detroit.


Martz, the former head coach of the Rams, rose to prominence as the offensive coordinator under Dick Vermeil, when the Rams came out of nowhere to win Super Bowl XXXIV.  Martz became the head coach of the Rams when Vermeil retired after the Super Bowl win. 


His final season in St. Louis was marred by a bacterial heart infection and in-fighting with the front office.  He has extensive experience at the college level, and he has also worked for the Redskins.

It's not like Matt Millen isn't the dumbest bastard running an NFL team ever.

That's it.

This is bullshit when the Lions were 6-1 (or what ever their record was) Millen was taking all the credit.  The guys he drafted were winning.  He brought in the coaches.  He brought in the free agents.  He made the trades.  They were winning because of him.

I'm not embellishing.  He wanted all of the credit for the turn around.  When the team went into the tank... Blame Martz!!!

This is no surprise.  It's what Millen does.  He's plays the "I take full responsibility.  It's his fault." card every year.

Look at his track record.

Shitty team year after year.

Fired Moeller.  Fired Marty I'm not even trying to spell his last name a week after giving him a contract extension.  That's right.  He signed him to a contract extension then fired him a week later.  Fired Mooch.  Fired Jauron.  Now Martz?

His draft choices:

Joey Harrington... Peyton Manning couldn't save that team.  A young QB was the right decision at the time.  Joey got a raw deal and got run out of town by Millen.

Charles Rogers... the guys out of the fucking league.  People were more willing to give  Laurence Phillips chances than Rogers.

Roy Williams has become a good player, but still drops the easy ball.  He can't beat out Shaun McDonald as the go to guy.

Mike Williams another WR bust.

Ernie Simms is a good LB with a history of injuries.  The organization keeps telling us he's going to be a pro-bowler, but he's gotta show me more before I start drinking the kool-aid.

Calvin Johnson was a bust this year, but he was injured.  I'm willing to give him a couple  more seasons.  He was Detroit's #4 WR this season.

The guy makes poor personel decisions then fires the coach.  That's his game.

He fucking sucks donkey cock.

Send Calvin Johnson to the Giants.  I'd take him in a second.

Martz play calling is questionable.  He loves the pass so much he often forgets to run.  They had a game where they ran twice.  Once in the first half and once in the second.  The team went from complete dogshit last year to just really bad.  Millen is the one who needs to go.  Marenelli needs to insist Marts run more often.  Keven Jones is a very good runner when he gets his carries.

They are both retards and it's tough to determine who sucks more.  I am going to start a worst owner thread based on this.
