Matt Millen Forgets To Do His Homework...Again

Pro Football Talk is reporting that Matt Millen didn’t know linebacker Jordon Dizon was arrested for drunk-driving six days before the draft.

The Detroit Lions have acknowledged that when they drafted linebacker Jordon Dizon in April, they did not know that he had been arrested six days earlier for suspicion of drunk driving, driving the wrong way down a one-way street, and failure to provide proof of insurance.

“We do all the background checks right up to the draft and none of that came through,” team President Matt Millen told Tom Kowalski of

Millen said his own reaction to players who get into off-field trouble is, “Where is your freaking mind?” A few Lions fans have wanted to ask Millen that in the last seven years.

    sad to think that, last year, the Lions got no points in ProFootballTalks “Turd Watch” competition.  This year, they’re one of the leaders.  Guess that “football character” trumps real character, eh?  Especially when the GM and coach are getting closer and closer to the line of fire.

    On a more personal note, YEEHAA!   Big Al is back on the Lions beat.
