If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing repeatedly and expecting different results then the Lions took a step away from insanity exactly two years ago today. On September 24, 2008 the Detroit Lions recognized the failure of the Millen-era and fired Matt Millen as president and CEO. There is no better way to celebrate the occasion than with some pictures.

The Atlanta Falcon's coaching staff had reason to joke around before their game with the Lions; a game against the Millen-assembled Lions was nearly a guaranteed win. The other possibility to explain the laughter is that William Clay Ford just passed gas. (Photo: YardBarker.com)
Zac Snyder got hooked on the Lions after his dad took him to a Monday Night Football game against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1990. The show put on by Barry Sanders and Bo Jackson that night was only surpassed by what Zac could do with Barry in a game of Tecmo Super Bowl.
