Yeah really MCG...being a die-hard Florida fan it's nice to see all those Gators in Chicago...hopefully they, especially Rex, pan out.

The one thing that drafting Roy Williams does do is give Harrington a WR who can get off the line of scrimmage and go deep. In college Joey was known more for his down field passing and has not had the time or the recievers to utilize the part of his game. He no longer has any excuses, the O-line is better, Rogers (if he is healthy) should get open easier with all of the attention focused on Williams. Streets is another big WR who doesn't mind playing physical ball. Az Hakim is the forgotten man here. He had a pretty bad hip injury and was just starting to show signs of regaining his speed at the end of last year. Add an improved running game and Joey has all the ducks in order.
I have said in the past that I don't like Harrington, I think he is mentally weak, but if he is to be a good pro this is the season for him to put up numbers. I think he'll be a solid #2 and could surprise.

Is the O-line better? I haven't really followed the Lions too much...did injuries hurt the line last year, or did they pick up some people to improve it this year?

I've seen a couple of Lions games and Harrington hasn't shown me anything, I haven't been impressed with him at all. If he can't succeed with this supporting cast, he's a piece of garbage.

I was hoping Mooch would give McMahon a chance last year...I remember he expressed that he liked Mike.

wow. First of all, its real tough to guage how good a QB is in his 2nd yr when he literally had the worst running game AND the worst wide recievers in the entire NFL. Give the kid a break.

The Lions have signed a solid C in Damien Woody and a G in David Laverne since March to bolster what was already a very good O-line - DET led the league in fewest sacks allowed last yr. 8 fewer than the next best! They also drafted a project named Kelly Butler in the 7th rd this yr, who is a darkhorse, but may be a steal in a couple yrs time.

They then went out and got secondary help by bringing in Brock Marion and Fernando Bryant. Those 2 combined with a healthy Chris Cash and a suprisingly solid Dre Bly, the secondary wont be the whipping boy it was last yr - much improved on paper at least.

Our LBs are young, fast as any, but extremely green. Give them 2-3 yrs to develop, and maybe Lehman can get off his blocks and read the game better by then. Boss Bailey turned out to be a great pick for the Lions last yr.

Basically the Lions addressed their D problems pretty well this yr, and wont be the laughing stock they were last yr. Please dont look at their first 2 draft picks this yr and conclude they havent upgraded their D because that simply isnt the case.

My thinking is if Roy Williams and Charles Rogers are bound for succeed, translating Joey Harrington will have a great year.

Joey Harrington is a solid #2 QB and a good shot at being # 1 if the young guns are as promising as they look.
