NBC Loses Its Mind


Imagine you’re one of the thousands of Detroit auto workers out of a job, or living in fear hour to hour that the axe is about to fall. Having no real pro football team of your own, you attempt to find a few hours of soothing escape watching other teams in the playoffs. You got your popcorn, you got your chips, you got your pizza, you got your Miller’s. You switch on the NBC pregame show on Saturday and your jaw drops to the floor in disbelief. Could that really be Matt Millen sitting next to Costas, offering up pearls of wisdom about the upcoming contests? Matt Millen, arguably the worst GM in the history of the NFL? Matt Millen, whose football expertise directly contributed to the Lions’ historic 0-16 season? Matt Millen, first class loser and utter incompetent, has the balls to be taking money as an NBC analyst? Competent workers in Detroit are being laid off by the thousands, and the city’s pro football team is in ruins, but NBC hands a contract to this incompetent hack who destroyed a franchise? What the hell were they thinking? Who the hell cares what Millen has to say about anything? The guy should have been tarred, feathered, and run out of town on a rail – but here he is with pancake makeup, lucrative contract in his back pocket, sharing his deep NFL insights with little Bobby Costas! For any true NFL fan from any city (other than Dallas where no true fans exist), this has to be sickening, but for the poor SOB’s in Detroit, this has to be downright nauseating! NBC has clearly lost its freakin’ mind!

matt millen was always a good analyst on TV. It is the ford family's fault for hiring him and leaving him in power so long. the same ford family that messed up the american car industry.

I blame NBC here. Regardless of how good Millen may or may not be as an analyst, NBC has to recognize the message they're sending to the audience by getting this guy on there. They really couldn't find anyone competent among the eleventy other talking heads they employ?

Gee, Eleanor, maybe your boy Millen can buy you some more kibbles with his fraudulent NBC money. I suppose that come Jan 20 you'll be petitioning NBC to sign Georgie W as a political analyst to offer his brilliant insights on managing the economy, the environment, and international affairs...

Matt Millen is a chump - there's my insight.
