his name was Matt Millen.
His name was Bobby Layne and he cursed the Lions.
In 1958, after leading the Lions to 3 NFL Championships and providing Detroit nearly decade of Hall of Fame play, the Lions traded Bobby Layne. Bobby was injured during the last championship season and the Lions thought he was through and wanted to get what they could for him. As he was leaving for Pittsburgh Bobby said that Detroit "would not win for 50 years".
In 2009 the Lions drafted as we all know Matthew Stafford who ironically graduated from the same Highland Park High School in Dallas as Layne did.
Now that Millen's gone, they can begin to pick up the pieces.
