I'm not sure what Jim Thomas means when he writes that Mike Martz has accepted an offer to become the Lions' offensive coordinator, only to add, "But it's not quite a done deal. As of mid-day Wednesday, contract terms had yet to be worked out." I don't think you've accepted an offer if you haven't agreed to a contract. But it sounds like this deal is going to get done, and if you're a Lions fan you have to be thrilled. Matt Millen deserves to be lambasted for all the idiotic decisions he's made, but if the staff he's putting together is any indication, Rod Marinelli was the right choice as head coach. The big question now is whether Martz wants to keep Joey Harrington around.
