Harrington looked nice. Let's see if he can keep it up when it really counts for something. At least it looks like the Lions will have to give him some more credit since he looked great and Garcia looked like crap. It's just one week of preseason, but it's a start.

I don't like the sound of the Lions Oline not looking good, especially since I'm a KJ believer. I saw Joey go 9 for 9 and he looked pretty good. I also saw Garcia's first series, yeesh has he lost a ton of zip on the ball. The guy is all guts, always has been, but his skills certainly have erroded in a hurry.

I missed all the games yesterday but was surprised to see Joey went 9/9. Doesn't sound like the Lions looked as good as the stats indicate though.

What bothers me most about the O-line is that the problems they had yesterday were the same weaknesses they had last season. Weak C play leads to gaurds having to help, which leaves tackles out on an island. And Backus is way too easily beaten by outside speed rushes. And he was beaten by some pretty average looking rushes. This line needs to come together in a hurry if the Lions are to do anything this season. And the loss of FB Schlesinger for the first 4 games is not going to help.
Garcia did look like what he now is, a decent back up QB.
The D was pathetic. Is it too soon to call for Jauron's head?

PAleeeeease, Harrington is going to revert back to his happy feet and lose the starting job by week three. The guy has massive weapons and the heart of a field mouse! He looked fair at best, the awesome receivers around him make him look better than he really is. Let's hope he doesn't string out his receiving core and end up getting them all injured. Is it me or does this guy remind me way to much of Trent Dilfer?????? Thank God for Kevin Jones.

The weak receivers that are no longer in the league that Joey had the past few years didn't make him worse than he is?????

I hope so, he won a Super Bowl.
