    Anyone who thinks this team will be bettered by having Joey Harrington on this team needs to put the drugs down and enter rehab on the double.

    Joey gets smacked around by the fans like salami on meat day, and though some of the things said about him aren't justified, the fact remains. The dude just isn't good.

    I had high hopes that my boy Jeff would tear things up in Detroit and that would be the last of the Joey Harrington chronicles, but alas, not quite. However, I'll give Joey the benefit of the doubt. Maybe it was the environment, right? When nobody has faith on you, there's not a lot to thrive on. I'll give him one season (playing backup) anywhere else (Minnesota :ha: ) and if he sucks there, then he sucks. Simple.

    ...And uhh, no. I don't think the Titans should take him. That would make our free agency reign look kind of dinky.

    Harrington for a 7th?

    If that is true the browns should consider him. Any team that can afford him. Of course he is worth a chance for a 7th rd pick.

    Dave wannstedt traded a first rd pick for rick mirer. :ha:

    Some recent titans picks in the 7th.

    Mike green
    Jared clauss
    todd williams
    Darrell hill
    reynaldo

    Reese has done a great job with them just getting guys who were able to make the team and contribute. Remember the nfl draft used to be 12 rds and then 10 rds not that long ago. 7th rd was a mid rd pick back.

    Lions: Harrington 'not with us'
    By TOM KRISHER
    ASSOCIATED PRESS

    March 20, 2006

    The Detroit Lions are parting ways with Joey Harrington after four turbulent seasons in which the former third overall draft pick went from franchise savior to fans’ scourge.

    Although he declined to say whether Harrington had been released, coach Rod Marinelli told reporters Monday: “We’ve made a decision to move on.”

    “At this moment, he’s not with us,” Marinelli said. “That’s been my decision.”

    A message seeking comment was left Monday with David Dunn, Harrington’s agent.

    Taking Harrington’s spot under center most likely will be Jon Kitna or Josh McCown. The two former NFL starters are expected to battle for the top quarterbacking job in Detroit.

    The Lions announced McCown’s signing over the weekend and were expected to announce Kitna’s this week.

    The Lions already have under contract former Tampa Bay and Arizona starter Shaun King and second-year man Dan Orlovsky.

    it makes me laugh that three mediocre guys were brought in to fight for his spot.

    i'd take him for a seventh any day if they lowered his worked on his salary some. a new start somewhere would do him good.
