I agree with you on that!

This is how Harrington rolls. He'll look good at times but turn around and throw 4 picks the next game.

Good point.
Maybe he can string together some good games though...he obviously has the potential.

Did Lemar Marshall get in the game at all?

Why is he allowed to play now at all?

By the way, nice play just now by former Skin Nic Clemons
he sure beefed up.

If he hasn't gotten good by now, it's not going to happen for him. He's too inaccurate and he makes bad decisions.

100% disagree. Sometimes a change of atmosphere and coaches helps a lot! Look at Steve Young, he was downright awful for 4 straight years (85-88) where he had right around 53% completion and only 24 tds, coupled with 24ints. He wasn't given the full riens til 91 or 92. (7-8 years later)
This will be Harrington's 6th year. Also, for the first time in his career, he hasn't needed to be "THE MAN", he actually has a running game in Atlanta to fall back on if need be.
Just in case you missed it, Harrington has gotten better with comp % which is usually an indictation of a QB getting better:
02- 50.1%
03- 55.8%
04- 56.0%
05- 57.0%
06- 57.5%
Now, I'm not saying that he's going to be Steve Young (IMO the best QB ever) what I am saying is there has been people that have done it, it's not too late.
Also, it basically took Rich Gannon 10 years before he was good...everyone passed on him too...oh yeah, like the Skins!

Rich Gannon got good way to late in his career to really make a big splash, with the exception of his Super Bowl year. Didn't he break his neck or something?

I don't recall him breaking his neck.

Just wait until GTripp gets a hold of this thread. If you thought he was a Brady Quinn fan just wait until he gets started on Gannon!

Yes, but not a serious enough injury to paralyze him, just enough to keep him out of football in danger it could get worsen. Has nothing to do with his early career, just why he retired.

About the got good late in his career thing...that's the point. Harrington still could have something left to show us.

Re: Harrington is looking great in Cincy game...

I definately think that guys can revive their careers with a change of scenery and experience. I just don't see Harrington as one of those guys. I've followed him long enough (I live in NFC North country) to say with a high degree of certainty that the guy is unlikely to be a success story in the NFL.
