Matt Millen’s son wanted DeMarcus Ware in 2005

Former Detroit Lions CEO Matt Millen has about as many critics as Calvin Johnson has receiving yards. And rightly so. Millen did, after all, lead Detroit to the worst eight-year record in the history of the modern NFL during his tenure in the Lions front office. But the latest criticism of the man who won four Super Bowl rings as a player looks like it's going to hit pretty close to home.

Millen's son Matthew was interviewed and pulled no punches on the latest installment of the NFL Network's 'A Football Life' which documents his father's career in the NFL. You might not recall Millen's dreadful consecutive first-round picks of Charles Rogers in 2003, Roy Williams in 2004 and Mike Williams 2005. But his son sure does. And like the rest of the Motor City he's not letting him live it down.

Moving to the American League Division Series, the Boston Red Sox eliminated the Tampa Bay Rays from the MLB postseason. The Sox advanced to the ALCS for the first time since 2008 thanks to a 3-1 victory over the Rays. Meanwhile, the Detroit Tigers stayed alive against the Oakland A's. Detroit benefited from a controversial Victor Martinez home run en route to an 8-6 win that forced a Game 5 for all the marbles.
