Warner to Motown?

Rams quarterback Kurt Warner's best opportunity at immediate playing time might be the New York Giants, but what about the Detroit Lions? Warner, whose deliveries might be better suited to a dome environment, might have an opportunity in Detroit, where some of the Lions have doubts about Joey Harrington.


Joey Harrington has fallen out of favor with some Lions.
The Lions have been talking about dealing backup quarterback Mike McMahon. The division-rival Bears have been the latest team to show some interest in McMahon, and if he is traded the Lions would have room for Warner. It rarely makes sense for a team to have two young quarterbacks, especially when the backup has less experience than the starter.

The dilemma facing Warner is that he is no longer in the driver's seat. Why would any team want to drop big money on him when some Rams insiders believe his right thumb will never be totally right? In fact, Warner's thumb is probably worse off than Brett Favre's, and the Packers' quarterback is stuck with a crooked one.

Warner makes sense with the Giants, a team destined to play Eli Manning some time this season. But why rush Manning into what could be a negative experience? Warner is a two-time MVP, deserving of a second chance at starting. With Marc Bulger signed to a long-term contract in St. Louis, it makes sense that the Rams will simply release Warner in June. In the last 18 months, Warner has collected over $12.5 million from the Rams for basically one start in 2003.



Warner gets the starting job in detroit...throwing bombs down the field to rogers and williams...and the ground game with jones...WOW

Lucky Bastard!

I have heard no talk of Mrs Warner's hubby coming to Detroit. They are willing to go with Joey and don't really want to challenge(threaten) Joey, as evidence by the signing of McMahon to back him up.

As a fan - I dont want to see Warner or his wife anywhere near Ford Field.

And what grumblings from the Lions about Joey? Who's grumbling? An example would be nice rather than making an unsubstantiated blanket statement like John Czarnecki (who???) has done. I love the Joey picture in the article with the caption: Joey Harrington has fallen out of favor with some Lions.

This is the same guy who wrote 2 weeks ago that he thought Kerry Collins should go to the Lions. Anyone but Joey, huh Czar?

Once again - how do you expect a 2nd yr QB with the worst running game and WRs in the NFL to do? Why dont we give him some weapons before deciding the gladiator cant fight - just an idea.

Honestly - this sort of muckraking reporting drivell really steams my clams. And hes the one who supplies the info for Fox news, huh? Now I know why I turn to JB, Terry, Howie, and Jimmy for a laugh and the other shows for the analysis.

Joey Harrington hasn't really shown me anything to prove that he wasn't a Tim Couch-like pick.
