This is what the AJC had to say:

Joey Harrington failed to make an impact with his first two NFL teams, the Lions and Dolphins.

    The pressure shows on QB Joey Harrington’s face, minutes after learning that Michael Vick plans to bring his winning attitude from dog training into his new role as QB coach for the Falcons.

  2. mondaymorningqb says:

    Starting quarterback Joey Harrington will be on a very short leash as he takes the reins of the Falcons this year.

  3. Romegaguy says:

    Given a choice between using Vick’s mouthguard or going without, Harrington makes the wise choice.

    Caption suggestion: “Christ, I hope Daunte Culpepper is within Arthur Blank’s budget for this season!”

  5. Rick Day says:

    Before the end of the ’07-’08 Falcon’s Super Bowl season, Harrington, (above) was cut. All Pro DJ Shockley wished him well in his new position with the Raiders/

    I’m not a Falcons’ fan nor a Harrington fan, but did the Lions and Dolphins make Harrington look like an awful QB, or did Harrington make those teams look worse than they were? I would suspect that it’s a little of both, but it’s an interesting question. Considering that he played in the same division as NE and NYJ, he had a decent, not great, season last year. I’m curious to see what happens. Just like I’m curious to see how Schaub pans out in Houston. With their pathetic O-line, I hope he likes being laid out on Reliant Stadium’s turf several times a game.

    And for those of you calling for Shockley, you must be desperate…That guy’s as dumb as a stump..see Vick, Michael: If the first read is covered, dump it off to the TE or RB.

    As for Schaub, one good game in 2005 against a banged-up NE secondary does not make a great QB. Geez, the Pats were giving up over 300 yards a game to the likes of Gus Ferrotte that season…yikes!

    Schaub was a great QB on a bunch of terrible UVA teams in college. Put in the right offense and he would have shined. We got rid of the wrong QB.

  8. Paidtoomuch??? says:

    During Harrington’s six years as a pro, he has thrown more touchdowns than interceptions in a season twice. This has always been the fault of everyone else associated with his teams.

  9. LoyaltyIsMyHonor says:

    Paidtoomuch, I’m not definding the guy at all. But the TD/Int ratio doesn’t explain everything. Why did he throw so many INTs? Were his teams always playing from behind? Were his receivers accurate route runners? Non-existant running game? Poor pass blocking? Poor play calling? Just throwing those out there. Anyone remember Rob Johnson? He was run out of the NFL because he constantly broke the cardinal rule for the passing game: He would take the sack over an incomplete so not to hurt his passing #s.

    I know I wouldn’t want Harrington as my starter, but Vick, while a great athlete, was an awful QB.
