The truth about Joey, by Marty Mornhenweg

Tough position to look back on considering that Jammer hasn't been that great either. At least with Joey there's still some hope there that Mooch anc Co. can get him turned around especially if Rogers comes back and stays healthy and Jones performs as he did the end of last year.

At least Quentin Jammer's somewhat servicable.

Joey's had plenty of time to prove himself. He's done nothing but make bad decisions. I really don't know how many more chances Detroit is willing to give him. As a Bengal fan, I thank y'all for taking him. We apparently had him in our sights. We "reached" for Levi Jones, but he's looking like a franchise tackle now. :-D

I really don't know if coming out and saying this about your quarterback is really smart. It kind of hurts his confidence, which really can't be too high right now in the first place. It's not exactly that detrimental, but there aren't many positive. It's kind of like he wants to put himself in the good light of the fans.

And upon further review, just as sappy, too."

To me he has been horrible and should have been canned when Marty was. But because we hired Mooch for some reason its almost a free pass at an extra year or two for Matt. I would have loved to have traded down and taken Jammer instead of Joey. I would also have like the Lions to have taken Andre Johnson over Collarbone Rogers. As a Lions fan i wish that Ford would just sell the team already, until then the Leos will go nowhere.


But, who would buy them? I know exactly where you're coming from man, I don't disagree, but it's sad to say they're all the Lions got.

I dont think the Lions would be too hard too sell. Im sure they would be a few people that would love to buy the Lions. They technically are a NFL franchise. ;-)

I'll give you 84 cents and a Slayer cassette tape for em.Seriously,I think Harrington can prove himself to be a capable but not outstanding starter sometime in the future,just not with the Lions.They have to squeeze a couple more losing seasons out of the guy first.Believe me,they are almost as bad as the Bears when it comes to holding on to crap so you don't "lose" money.But that OT game was a classic.I almost fell off my chair when they gave the ball back to the Bears,with a solid kicker used to kicking in windy conditions....just too funny for words.
