Most people who lose their jobs in Detroit would be happy to find a single new one, but Matt Millen, late of the Lions, now has two jobs.
The NFL Network has named him as analyst for its eight-game Thursday Night Football schedule (which includes games on a Friday and Saturday), replacing Cris Collinsworth, who has stepped into John Madden’s place on Sunday nights.
Millen’s Thursday gig is in addition to having joined ESPN as a college and pro football analyst. All this after having overseen the failure of the Lions as the club’s president for eight seasons.
The thing is, he’s pretty good behind a microphone. Much better than he was behind a desk.
