    Are you sure his curse doesn't run until 2010?
    But then one curse could cancel the other.

    Joey Harrington was cut by the Falcons as they get down to their 53 man roster. Left on the team were starter Matt Ryan, second stringer Chris Redmond, and D. J. Shockley as the team's #3 quarterback.

    I personally didn't know what to think of this draft choice when the Lions made it. He seemed to be able to bring his team back in the 4th quarter in college, but he was a system QB who just didn't seem to be "tough". It's obvious now that Joey simply didn't have what it takes to make it in the NFL. He reminds me of Drew Henson, in the fact that I thought he had much more NFL potential than we've seen.

    I hope the NFL enacts a rule limiting rookie salaries cause teams are getting burned by these QBs out of college who turn out to be duds.

    Let's not start over about Joel again. We coddled him from the moment he got here. Then when it can time for him to win the Super Bowl, all he could do is coddle himself.
    In 6 years I don't ever think he was injured. Some one will pick him up. New England, Indy.

    I disagree with that statement, but as you said, let's not start on Joel again...

    Harrington couldn't make it in the CFL. It's a different game. Guys like Flutie and Garcia were MVPs in that league. You have to have a strong arm, good legs and a lot of toughness because you will get beat up.
