Draft

I didn't say that but Heath Miller is far and away the best TE in the draft and he is a junior. 6-5 255 unanimous All-American He can bring a load........

Hahaha if anyone just saw Mel Kiper's top 10 draft pick analysis on Sportscenter, well he also believes the Lions will go for Heath Miller at 10.

I like the Lions taking Heath Miller at #10. First off, I think they'll pick up another QB who's better than Harrington and can actually run their offense, so they could hold off on drafting another franchise guy for now. Roy Williams and Kevin Jones give them 2 great weapons, but no one knows if Charles Rogers will ever play even half a season of football, ever. Miller gives them another young receiving option, and makes there offense overwhelming if Rogers plays to potential.

Also, they've got a solid young defense. Rogers, Lehman, Bailey, Cash, they've got a good base, but they need something else to get things working. I believe a change at QB and a good TE prospect could allow them to compete for the division with a few minor tweaks to that defense.

Why are people so quick to pull a QB and suggest teams should start over with another one?. There is a big learning curve for new quarterbacks in most systems. Harrington had his best year as a pro in '04. He thre for 3,047 yards and 19 touchdowns while only throwing 12 interceptions all improvements over '03. As a matter of fact his passing yards and touchdowns have improved every year since coming into the league. Part of the reason for the vast improvement in'04 has to be the addition of a running game with Kevin Jones now in the lineup. In past seasons who has lined up behind Harrington? James Stewart, Lamont Warren, Shanw Bryson, Artose Pinner; not exactly studs at their position. I think as long as he is improving he would remain my quarterback if I was the coach!

This is a good point, but in this case it may be the numbers look better than the actual product. Overall Harrington is thought of as a disappointment. The games I saw him play he did not seem to have the maturity you'd expect as this stage. As a comparison, I thought Rex Grossman showed more maturity and promise than Harrington did despite Grossman's numbers being much inferior, and I'm not a big Grossman fan by any stretch. Harrington's ability to miss or overthrow receivers is legendary even given that he is still a young QB.
