    I believe Carr and Harrington will show that they have reached the other end of the tunnel this season. They have all the pieces around them in their respective offenses(especially Harrington).

    They will have very good seasons, I never doubted that either guy would fail. I'm expecting good things out of them, just like Brees did last season.

    Considering Carr has spent most of his career on his back he's played pretty well.

    I'm still not sold on Harrington. Carr has shown me mental and physical toughness. Harrington hasn't.

    Carr doesn't need to prove anything. Harrington, on the other hand, has everything to prove.

    Harrington has too many weapons this year. Roy Williams, Mike Williams, Kevin JOhnson, Tai Streets, Charles Rogers, and Marcus Pollard. That is some depth. Kevin Jones should take some heat off of Harrington at times. If he flops again, I think he is gone.

    And no I don't want to see a thread about Harrington to Dallas when that happens.

    I'll take Harrington here in Dallas.

    Harrington wasn't THAT bad last year, he had respectable stats, even though at times the offense struggled with him at the helm, another year with Kevin Jones running the football, and Roy Williams with more experience, plus hopefully a healthy Rogers, and Mike Williams providing the redzone impact like most think he will, I think he should do well, he's not going to be a world-beater by any means IMO, just solid, maybe more than that...

    Carr has it going on though, a great, young WR in Andre Johnson and Dominick Davis, is well, Dominick Davis, ALTHOUGH, that line doesn't look to be much improved, so I don't know, I don't think this is either of their years...

    If Harrington does as good this year as I figured he'd be by this time in his career, then I'd take him in Dallas too. But if he does that good the Lions won't let him go. lol

    Carr's done the best he can with the OLine put in front of him.

    This is Harringtons make it or break it year, much like Bree's last year. I think there's a very good chance Garcia (haha) will be starting for the Lions before the years over. Harrington hasn't shown me a thing.

    It really amazes me that Texas has been so slow to build the O line- and how much abuse they have THUS allowed Carr to take. It has got to have an effect on his career- certainly will shorten it. Look at what happened to AIkman getting pounded all of his first year and a lot of his second. Then his last 2 years.

    If Detroit had a "real' QB, on that team, they offensively, would be scary .

    God forbid we have him in Dallas! If he can't throw a 3-5 yard pass in the West Coast offense, he doesn't deserve to be in the NFL. Unfortunately for Joey, the Detroit fans are against him now. Any bad move he does will be booed.

    The Lions had an open practice and all 26,000 fans were booing Joey after throwing a bunch of incompletions. His confidence is shot, so we will see.

    i'm not sure how their teams will do, but i already respect Carr moreso than Harrington. Carr will eventually get some more pieces around him and succeed, but Harrington with a lot of the pieces in place still lacks the confidence he needs. Detroit at this point needs a veteran, and don't be surprised if they start winning games if Harrington gets the bench... oh that we had Detroit's WR corps... *sigh*

    Carr is very good and I think he and the Texans make the playoffs this year. Harrington isn't going to make it IMO. You'll see Garcia in there for Detroit by mid season if he struggles.

    Maybe Garcia has one more solid year left in him...

    Harrington has looked very good in Pre-season. He looks more confident, he's putting the ball were it will either by caught or incomplete. I believe his first game he was 9-9 for 100 yards.

    I am high on Harrington having a much better year this year.

    Yeah, he looked about perfect v a soft zone, Lawless, Abeless Jets D, in a game where rookie dbs were the prime evaluation.

    In a 'real' game scenario...it remains to be seen.

    Not going to argue about the quality of opposition. It still doesn't change my opinion that he looks much more confident and is throwing the ball well.

    I have not seen Harrington play all that much but he has not impressed me when I have seen him. One thing that bothers me about him was his performance in the QB challenge. I know that it is not a very realistic evaluation of a QB but Joey totally embarrassed himself; his arm was weak, his throws were inaccurate, he let himself get rattled...it was pathetic. No, I think I'd rather give Henson and Romo another year...I don't think they would be worse.

    I've read Garcia has had an extremely awful TC. No way he replaces Harrington. According to some of the articles, he basically gift-wrapped the QB position to Harrington, as he provided no real comp.

    Like others have mentioned, with Carr, it's the o-line. They've got the pieces to do some serious damage on O, if he can stay up. On the flipside, I question their D. They got rid of three starters on D and replaced them w/faster and younger guys, but the question is whether they're really better.
