I wonder if he'll send Carmella to kick somebody's ass.

http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/8195095

I'm sure he'll be picked up by someone, but I've never been impressed by the guy. Sure he had a few good seasons in SF, but I've just never bought into him. He's in his mid 30's, he's a smaller guy & he's not that great of a runner. So what team takes a chance on him?

John Clayton just said on ESPN Radio he's probably bound for Detroit and a reunion with Mariucci. I'm sure Joey Harrington will be thrilled.

Well, here in Detroit, that's been the consensus from the radio talk show people. But, they're also saying that Kurt Warner is interested, because he knows that he could have a good chance to complete with Joey Happyface for the starting job. Kitna's another name being floated around. But, Garcia is a good bet because of the ties with Mooch and his glove-like fit with the West Coast offense.

Right now, though, anything that might either light a fire under Harrington, or put a *bench* under Harrington would make the average Detroit fan ecstatic.

Well, as a Detroit fan not living there, this talk kind of scares me. Harrington may not be totally living up to his potential, but I would rather have a decent young QB whose better days are ahead of him over a semi-average QB whose best days are behind him.

You can't build a team on a QB who is on the way out. I am about as nervous about this as I was the talk about Rice going to Detroit when he left Oakland. Yeah - I would love to see the Lions in contention, but I would rather them grow a young team that will eventually have some staying power than to get someone like Garcia who won't be around for too much longer anyway...

Harrington is no Manning or Brady, but he can do the job. And if they build up the rest of the team around him to compensate, I think the results will be better.

I thought they were letting Mike McMahon go and keeping Harrington.

Seriously, I can't help but think that this is a good thing for the Lions provided they can get Garcia on the cheap. Look at it this way, maybe Harrington will respond to the threat of losing his job the same way that Drew Brees responded to the threat of losing his job. While I don't think that Harrington is that good, he's got enough talent around him to make the Lions a threat in that sad sack division. If Harrington doesn't respond well, then they've got an experienced QB who can hold down the fort while they look for someone new. Either way, I think they will be better off than they are right now.

It'd be irresponsible for Detroit to go into the season with Harrington as the only quarterback who could conceivably win them a game this year after his performance last year had some calling for him to be benched. I think Harrington will be OK when the whole offense is healthy, but if they can get an alternative on the cheap it couldn't hurt to do so.

If Harrington plays well, great, they had a low cost insurance policy and your QB question has been answered for the following year. If he sucks, Lions fans will be glad they've got someone else around, be it Garcia, Warner, Kitna, or whoever. The Lions do have some good young players and the potential to be a playoff team, but there's no sense in keeping only Harrington just because you want to be young. The guy's age doesn't help if he stinks it up on the field.

I'd be fine with getting someone like Garcia or Warner as a back-up - but not if they are going to bring him in to be the new starter. If Harrington got benched in favor of someone like that, I would hope that they would begin looking in earnest for a replacement starter shortly thereafter. I just think that Harrington hasn't been so bad that it is time yet to start screaming for a replacement. I am advocating for more patience, is all...

But in all fairness, this has to be Joey Harrington's year. I feel he's going to have to put on a Drew Brees show in order to remain the starter in Detroit.

According to Pasquarelli, you should see several QB's get released soon. A few names mentioned are Drew Bledsoe, Rich Gannon, and Jay Fiedler.

Thanks for a great season, Pick of the Week fans...see you next year at Planet Magic in Denmark, WI!

I think Fox Sports Net (or FSN to you cool kids) floated Garcia as a possible replacement in Titletown, should Favre hang 'em up and put this whole state on suicide watch.

In the wake of his fellow ex-Brown Tim Couch, this strikes me a lot like the Bart Starr-Forrest Gregg coaching eras. "Well, one of Lombardi's guys didn't work out...let's try another!"

Personally, behind that solid Packer line (which could get worse w/ the expected loss of either Marco Rivera or Mike Wahle), I think Drew Bledsoe would do OK. But I'll stick with the redneck from The Kill, MS, for now. :-)

Rather than bring in some guy towards the latter end of his career, Green Bay should just bite the bullet and get a young player to helm the offense. I mean, no one is going to be the next Brett Favre, but Jeff Garcia in Green Bay?

Well, it looks like its now official about Bledsoe (sports.espn.go.com).

If everything is perfect around Bledsoe at this point in his career, he might get the Pack an 8-8 or maybe even a 9-7 record. The last time Bledsoe led a team to double digit wins was the '97 season, or the last time the Pack was in the Super Bowl. The Bills got hot last season when Bledsoe didn't have to throw the ball, and when the ball had to go in his hands to make the playoffs, he did his customary pick-6 pass attack. If he follows Favre and gets off to a bad start, Packer fans might be trying to join Patriot fans in recognizing Mo Lewis Day as an official holiday. Also, it is almost a given he ends up reuniting with Parcells anyway.
As for Warner in Detroit, I can't see him in a West Coast offense.
