Here's an endless loop of Matt Millen apologizing for his stint as Lions GM


On Sunday, the "Fire Millen" crowd got a rare treat when Matt Millen publicly apologized for his stint as Detroit Lions general manager from 2001-2008.

While working as an analyst for Fox during the Buccaneers-Colts game on Sunday, Millen playfully addressed his disastrous tenure, which cumulated in the team's winless season in 2008. "It was a little bit of a tactical error on my part. I had this fleeting dream that I thought maybe I could run a team," he said. "Sorry Detroit, it didn't quite work out."

The moment was captured for eternity on this Vine video, which can play on an endless loop. The question for Lions fans is this — how many times do you need to watch it on repeat in order to finally forgive him? (Via CBS Sports.)
