Matt Millen tells his player to "Get some balls"

From Detroit's team page on ESPN.com:

There was a strange radio conversation between Mike Ditka and president Matt Millen on Oct. 17, ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reported. During an interview, Millen and Ditka were discussing players who simply didn't play up to potential and wimped out on contact. Millen suggested the current Lions defense has an unnamed player he referred to as a "devout coward," a guy who made plays in practice but never in a game. The Lions downplayed the remarks, the Detroit Free Press reported. "I addressed it with the football players, with the team," coach Marty Mornhinweg told the newspaper. "And I 100 percent disagree with those comments."
==================================

On Sportscenter, they played an audio clip of Matt Millen from the radio show when he said that the player "had to get some balls".

Drama in Detroit.

I wonder who he's talking about?

I was listening to that (it was during Ditka's show on THursday on WSCR in Chicago) but didn't hear that part...I did hear him say that Terrell Owens is a moron and that "we" are the ones creating the issue though and that by even talking about it on the radio makes the next guy "step it up a notch"...I Like the guy...he says what he thinks and that is cool.

Okay, I just heard it again and Millen said, "Where are your testicles?"

He also said that he wanted to choke him.
