Why Was Matt Millen on my TV During the Draft? (Update: And Making Polack Jokes?)


UPDATE: Matt Millen can’t even do THIS job right.  In this same segment (pictured above) he made some general joke about Polacks and Ron Jaworski.  Later in the broadcast when ESPN came back from commercial, Matt Millen was sitting in the same room, all by himself, and stumbled through an apology.  The apology was probably the worst apology in the history of apologies because Millen justified his comment as opposed to just taking responsibility for being an idiot.  So, in two minutes on my TV, Millen spit bullshit draft analysis, made an insensitive joke, and then screwed up the apology.  Sounds like a typical day of work for Matt Millen.

UPDATE 2: Hilarious video of the apology amongst some other stuff at Tirico Suave.

Matt Millen should not be giving his analysis on potential NFL Draftees.  You’d think ESPN would check his resume on things of this nature before letting his mouth diarrhea all over the place.  I feel bad for Herbstreit here.

The Lions record with Millen as GM (31-81) was ALMOST worse than his draft record of 11-61.  And that’s just the number of players still with the team – that doesn’t mean they’re any good (ahem Bullocks, Ramirez, Cohen, etc.). If ESPN wants to waste their money letting Millen announce football games then whatever, I guess.  But do NOT insult me by putting him on as an analyst for the NFL Draft.  Blasphemous.
