    Matt Millen, Joey Harrington, Charles Rodgers and Mike Williams will serve as pallbearers.

    50 years and one playoff win to speak of? That takes effort.

    To properly honor his owner, Matthew Stafford is going to donate $1,000 for each interception he throws this season to a charity in Ford's name.

    Maybe Ford thought death was the only way he could stop having to sign checks to failed coaches and GMs.

    Awesome, put the charities in position of hoping Stafford screws up, and Stafford in the position, if he plays well, of screwing the charities out of money.

    Here's a better idea: Either donate the money or don't.

    I should have added a smiley face, because that was a joke... :D

    Don't laugh -- people do sometimes set up those kinds of ass-backwards donation deals where fans of the teams have to root against cancer research, etc etc.

    So funny when starman gets worked up about something. He can't see the forest from the trees.

    So do the Lions have a Smart(er) Son lined up, like Rocky Wirtz or Jim Irsay?

    Clay Ford Jr. has been in the wings for many years.

    It's a good franchise that has made horrific GM and coaching hires for the last 20 years.

    The Lions biggest fuckup was when they hired Mooch and then wouldn't let him get choose his own QB. They forced Harrington on him and Mooch hated Harrington. He thought he was soft and uncoachable.

    You hire a QB guru and pay him what, at the time was huge money and then don't let him choose his QB is just one of the dumbest things ever.
