Please lets make realistic assesments of talent- you cannot simply go off of statistics to help prove your point- especially with the qb position.....if that was the case then Peyton Manning two years ago-when he had over 25 ints- should have been on the "hot seat".
Ironic thing is, most of the Quincy fans will be up in arms about going with just Stats. But will easily point at stats when its other teams QBs.
First of all if anyone has seen Lions last year, ought to know, their WRs were worst in the league. RBs also were even worse than Hambone seems like. All together, Lions led the league in dropped passes last year. How the heck is Harrington going to succeed with that?
Now Harrington, barring injuries, will have excellent Offensive weapons. Its not just me, but even Troy said when he did one of their games, that Harrington will be a star if he has enough weapons.
Carr, I am not too sure. I dont think Carr will be more than above Average QB. He had weapons last year, more than Harrington had anyway, but still wasn't that great. Although, you can't compare Houston texans team with Cowboys in terms of talent yet.
Anyway, I expect Harrington to have breakout year, as long as the team is fairly injury free. Lions are the worst team in terms of injury last 4 or 5 years, so I have doubts if that will change this year. Its as bad as Cowboys were in terms of injuries during 2000-2002 seasons.
