i think credit to his poor play can be put on both sides, he was in a terrible system in Detriot and you always have yourself to blame.

It was Detroit's fault for the most part. He isn't a stud, but he might have been if the Lions didn't make him suck like this. He is a good back up though.

How about some logic behind how the Lions make a player suck?

They ruined his confidence. They put him in an offense that didn't fit him and gave him nothing to work with. They scarred his confidence and ruined everything about him mechanically. He sure didn't have that "look a way" throw at Oregon.

You're right....The Lions made Charles Rogers break his collar bone in back to back years...Mike Williams is in his second year!!!!!!

He's a grown man i don't think his confidence can be ruined as easily as you say. There is a big diffence from college to the pros, a lot of players look good in college and then don't pan out in the pros.

Answer me this...Did the Browns ruin Tim Couch? How about the Bengals runing Akili Smith? What about the Chargers ruining Ryan Leaf? Some players just aren't cut out for the NFL.

Charles Rogers was a bust from the get go, broken collerbone or not, he still sucked. There was no way Harrington could be a solid qb in that offense, with the talent they had, or lack thereof.

Ask Mooch. He completely obliterated Harrington's confidence and never had any faith in him, which was a huge mistake.

Cleo Lemon is a monster.

Or the Colts defense sucks. And had zero tape on Lemon.

Actually yes, the Browns did ruin Tim Couch. There's no question of that in my mind.

Harrington never had an offensive line in Detroit.

He never had decent coaching because mooch never liked him.

He only ever had Williams and Pollard.

He's never had a running game.

The year he did have a running game he still didn't have an offensive line or any targets.

He goes to Miami, the receivers are pathetic, he's in a new offense, the protection still sucks, his running game, is solid, but not what it could or should be. He's thrown in as the starter with no chemistry due to the fact that culpepper was sarting and took all the reps with the first team.

Harrington has got a lot of potential he just needs to go to the right place imo.

Our OL is actually pretty good at pass blocking, Joey was sacked like 15 times in 11 games.
