NO! Can't change the name... lest we forget. The name shall remain as a lesson to us all, that no matter how bad this team gets it was always worse.

Thats what happens when you forget your password and the email is a work email account that you have moved and changed jobs.

The original MNYM will always live in all our hearts. I think I had like 20 posts under that name.

I should change my name. Suggest some names.

How about 'Maybe next year Mr. Ford40'. The 40 is for the # of years we have approximately been waiting for a championship under his ownership. Lest we forget, we stunk before Millen arrived, he only made it look worse.
I really think you have to put Ford in there somewhere to remind us of the hurrdle any GM or HC must overcome to bring a winner to Detroit.
I did like 'IamAmerican' though, it has a nice ring to it.

Ehhh I'm young so don't care about anything before the 90s really. Although in the past 40 years, we've had 16 .500 and above seasons and 23 losing seasons(1strike). So it was somewhat respectatble and then Millen got here and we had 8 losing seasons in a row. There were more .500 and above seasons 16 to 15 before Millen. And of course we made the playoffs 6 times out of 10 years in the 90s. Consistent playoffs is what garners a ton of respect too given how hard it is to win a championship. We had that in the 90s.

Ford is loyal and liked Millen which obviously sucked. That loyalty will be great though if Mayhew is a good GM(which so far so good) and Schwartz is a good coach. And as for the scouts, I just don't see Ford being friends with the scouts.

Millen will be doing the NFL Network broadcasts color commentary lol.

Every Thursday we get to see the a-hole. I think I'd rather have Hellen Keller announce the games than Millen.
