Friday Notes: Matt Millen-Free for a Year Already

  • According to Tom Kowalski, 10,000 tickets were available yesterday at the 1 p.m. blackout deadline.  That's how many tickets were available on Wednesday, so it appears the threat of a blackout didn't cause hardly anyone to go buy tickets to the game.
  • If you are going to the game on Sunday, plan on showing up a little earlier than usual due to expected delays related to security.  All over the country there is heightened security at sporting events, including the University of Michigan, which actually banned all bags from the Big House.
  • It's already been a year since Matt Millen was fired.  It seems like he's been gone for much longer than that, though the stink of his presence is still on this franchise.
  • Describing his fumble against the Vikings, Kevin Smith said it best: "You never like to drop the money on the way to the bank."
  • Gunther Cunningham thinks highly of Redskins tight end Chris Cooley.
  • Turk McBride is quickly adjusting to playing in a 4-3 with the Lions.
  • Add Mike O'Hara to the list of people placing the blame of the Jared Allen sack on Jerome Felton.
  • Larry Foote is concerned with some of the problems the Detroit PSL has been having.
  • 40 former Lions players will be at Sunday's game as part of alumni day festivities.  The list of players includes Lomas Brown, Luther Elliss, Eddie Murray, and Charlie Sanders, among others.
  • The Detroit News obtained the police report from when Charles Rogers was arrested earlier this month.
  • As always, check out SB Nation's fantasy football page for continuous updates all weekend on who to start and who to sit.
