Monday Morning QB.

Well, I had an off week last week, just didn't feel in the blogger spirit very much! Hopefully things will be better off this week, but who knows? All I know is it is another Monday following another Lions loss and another dismal performance by one Joey Harrington. All things considered, let us begin!

Well, is there anyone out there now that thinks Joey should stay? ANYONE? Let us see, he was something like 5 for 22 for a collective 47 yards, if I am not mistaken. That is horrible, with or without the weather! Can you even use the weather as a factor? Kevin Jones looks like a keeper, looks like the Lions running back of the future, now we just need to find the QB to hand it to him. The Packers essentially stacked the line in the second half, tempting Joey to beat them, but he failed miserably. The dude is about as accurate as a blind man, no disrespect meant for those that are blind - I am sure they probably throw a better ball than Joey anyway! It is time to move on people, and hopefully the Lions will. Their biggest pursuit of anyone in the off season should be a veteran QB, that is all! Nothing more, nothing less - just a QB that can show Joey how a QB is suppose to play. Maybe with someone pushing Joey, and Mike McMahon is not exactly someone that I would be afraid of as a back up taking my job, he will start to perform. But the bottom line is that I don't think anything will make Joey a good quarterback, his opportunities have come and he has shown nothing when they are given to him. It is a shame, but it is what it is.

Well, not too much else to say about that game. The season is over now, time to start thinking of the draft and next season. I am tired of people blaming Mooch, he was conservative in San Francisco, but he had weapons there and it was a pretty successful team. Here he has no choice but to be conservative - he has a QB he can not trust and whom he knows couldn't throw an accurate pass if his life depended on it! I would be somewhat conservative too, if I had no choice! And going away from the run in the second half, what choice did he have? Mike Sherman of the Packers stacked the line to stop the run, knowing full well that Joey couldn't do shit even if the receivers were open! Bye-bye Joey, see you later!

Well, there are a lot of things to talk about this week, and we will get to all of them in time. Rose Bowl preview, post Heisman talk, the Pistons troubles, etc. But until then, we will just have to part ways for the time being. Stay strong, dream of the draft and a new Lions QB for Christmas, and take care - the sports dude!
