I like 2001. 3 contributors to our current team. Shaun Rogers is one of the best in the league, and Raiola turned it on last year. Backus is servicable. 2004 is a close second though.

So far in 6 years, Millen has produced 2 real stars for this football team, Roy Williams and Shauh Rogers, so using the term 'best draft' in connection with Millen is rather silly. Somebody has to start for Detroit but that doesn't make them good draft pickes. In total, Millen has clearly shown, he hasn't a clue about judging peoples character in choosing HC's or players. He is completely useless in the interview process as he cannot tell anything about a player's committment to excellence and is way too impressed by their college stats. The solid organizations have GM's and HC's who can really discern in the interview process a player's desire to be great. Millen is just completely lost in this process.

Not everyone can and should be a "star" on a winning team. You need your stars and you need your solid players. I think Backus, Raiola, Redding, Sims, Bullocks, Wilson and KJones can be looked at as solid players... and are solid picks.

You shouldn't judge a draft by how many superstars the draft yields... but how the draft benefits the team and improves the positions on that team.

I think the main reason they've had so many busts (draft + free agency) has to be the environment. Their players just don't develop. I don't think it's possible for somebody to be that bad of an evaluator and miss with the frequency he has.

As far as personnel, I think what's killed the Lions more than anything has been the o-line. The two tackles Millen inherited, Gibson and McDougle, are total busts. I believe Gibson is out of the league and McDougle is on his heels. Millen hasn't done much better. He let Hartings and Compton walk and I believe both have Super bowl rings as starters. His attempts at plugging the left guard spot have been terrible.

The Detroit mindset is a BIG reason as to why many have failed. The OLine problems haven't helped... at all... which is probably the second reason as to why the team has performed this poorly.

If you think about the picks Millen has made... the team SHOULD be successful right now. The Lions SHOULD have a great OLine, a great QB, the top WRs, a talented RB and a solid defense. Most of those picks have failed (due to the mindset and OLine struggles) which is why Detroit is where it is right now.

i say 2004 with roy KJ and lehman (hopefully he comes back to his old form) but 2001 was a good year with three starters all on the Oline. 2006 is too early to judge but could nd up being a good draft.

Lehman experienced that injury, Butler was cut last year and i'm not sure how much Smith has played.

I cannot agree with you here. Harrington got a real shot in Miami and they dumped him and nobody is rushing in to pick up the pieces. C. Rogers cannot even get a serious bite at an NFL job. Mike Williams practically never got off the bench. These guys are riddled with character problems and Millen just didn't have the ability to judge them in the interview process. Blaming the atmosphere in Detroit is just sweeping the problem under the rug. Cincy has a terrible decade of flops before they brought in Lewis and drafted Carson Palmer. The Detroit scouting department is a joke and Millen at a draft table is even worse.
Indy was a last place team when they drafted Payton, New Orleans was a terrible place to play until they signed Brees and brought in Bush. Arizona was another ugly franchise until they drafted Leinart. Franchises and atmospheres can change overnight if the owner is capable, hires a solid GM who in turn hires a solid HC and assistants. We know Ford hasn't a clue, he hired Millen who is just as inept and the jury is still out on Marinelli who was very lucky to win 3 games in his rookie year.
Football players who have real inner strength to become very solid players leave the miserable team that drafted them and go on to have sometimes great careers. Football players who have no inner strength just disappear without so much as a whimper. That's not atmosphere, that's drafting incompetent players.

If Lehman and Jones ever get healthy than 2004 wil be his best draft by a wide margin.

It has GOT to be a mixture of both... it just has to.

Harrington could succeed with an incredible OLine... CRog was said to be the "next great thing" and a "sure pick" in the draft... and MWilliams was said to be a great player (although he was still an unnnecessary pick). Any of those players could've succeeded in the right situation... but it just so happens that Detroit had absolutely NO OLine, CRog got hurt, and laziness/Martz kept MWilliams on the bench.

My point: it's more than just the players. Detroit was (and, some say is) a horrible team and a brutal environment for those players to play in. It was a losing atmosphere, and that's hard for any player.

Marinelli is turning that around, which is why I feel he's a great coach for us. He's bringing in hard-working, high motor/character players to turn this team around... which is exactly what we need.

Do all of you guys want millen fired, or do you think he could turn it around?

Personally, i like 01 draft. Raoila, Backus, Rogers, three good trench players.

I think he can turn it around. I loved last years draft except the Calhoun pick.

I don't really want him fired... but I could care less at this point. He's given us Marinelli, who I think is outstanding, and Marinelli proved last year that he has SOME say in the draft process.

As long as they have a solid draft, Millen can stay (IMO). If the team is making improvements, they'll win more games... it isnt ALL his fault.

Im really rooting for you guys. The losing this franchise has gone through this decade has been ridicolous. I hope the lions can turn it around, along with other losing franchises (raiders, browns, etc)
