Detroit doesn't need the Tears of McCown.

I'm sure Detroit's heartbroken about that.

It seems like only 4 years ago, the BB was rife with discussion regarding the possibility to trade up to get Joey. We got Sims instead...*sigh*

Yeah, that was a tough one. If I have to say something, Sims outproduced Harrington, but very very very slim margin IMHO.

I think he would be great in our system behind a solid O line

I'd definitely give him a shot if he was affordable. I might not expect that much from him, but it would help get over the huge loss of Todd Collins

McCown is a Lion

<A name=297518>Lions | McCown signed to two-year contract
Thu, 16 Mar 2006 09:37:51 -0800Len Pasquarelli (http://www.kffl.com/link/17), of ESPN.com (http://www.kffl.com/link/9), reports the Detroit Lions (http://www.kffl.com/team/16/nfl) have signed free agent QB Josh McCown (http://www.kffl.com/player/45/nfl) (Cardinals) to a two-year contract worth $6 million. The deal will pay him $4 million in 2006 between his signing bonus and base salary.

McCown and Kitna, and no arrangements to deal Harrington? Millen is at his brilliant best this offseason.

Collins knew the system......we will never know if he can execute it.
Loss of Collins....hardly a loss

They need extra QBs to throw to all those WRs they've drafted in recent years.

I have a pal who's a Detroit fan so I've watched quite a few games the past couple of years and Harrington got little time to throw, and eventually became shell-shocked. Personally I'd love to see Harrington as back-up in K.C. Maybe a couple of years behind Trent and he'll step up. Remember the good old days when a team would draft a QB and give him a couple of seasons playing back up to get up to speed? I think Harrington needed that and very few QB's have come out and been good right away. I know he's had four years, but that's four years behind a crappy O-line. I'm not really a fan of his, and I've enjoyed baggin' on him to piss my buddy off, but I do think he could still turn it around.

Harrington likely to be released, per (source deleted to avoid bitching)

<Mar. 16> The acquisitions of Josh McCown and Jon Kitna likely represent the end of Harrington's days in Detroit, ESPN.com's Len Pasquarelli reports.

After four disapppointing seasons, Harrington, who was the third overall player selected in the 2002 draft, is expected to be released. The 26-year-old started in 55 of 58 appearances and completed 986 of 1,802 passes for 10,242 yards, with 60 touchdown passes, 62 interception and a 68.1 passer rating.

Harrington is owed a $4 million roster bonus June 15, and his base salary for 2006 is $4.45 million. Releasing Harrington, who has compiled an 18-37 record as a starter, will save the Lions about $5.4 million in 2006 cap space.

Tedford curse strikes again.

Harrington is worth taking a flyer on, IMO. He's better than either of our backups. Casey "The One" Printers is a complete unknown quantity. Huard flat out sucks. I'd rather have Ramsey for a 5th or 6th, but Harrington for no compesation is decent.

Get 'em Carl!! Decent potential backup, draft Croyle, dump Huard.

Ralphy Boy

Carl was very high on Joey heading into the draft. I'm all for signing him if he becomes a FA, but wouldn't trade for him. Same goes for Ramsey. Both are guys who simply weren't ready to start in the NFL coming out of college and in particular; start behind horrible lines in organizations with great instability among the coaches. No different than Trent Green, he simply wasn't ready to start when he came out of college, but he wasn't overhyped either. Both Ramsey & Harrington can be good NFL starting QB's and are salvageable.

Chris Meck

I think Harrington's had a raw deal. I agree, bring him in, let him learn the system from Trent for a year or two, and then I think he'd be fine.

We just signed Huard to a 770k contract. I doubt we'll be dumping him.

I really don't expect Croyle to be available where the Chiefs would be willing to take him, but it would be nice if he was.

Was there a signing bonus in that contract? If not, vets under league minimum contracts get cut all the time.
