    JammerTime!

    Just returned home from being treated with a sore back. When I heard the news of Joey being traded this morning I tried doing a backflip and lets just say " I ain't as young as I use to be" God Bless Miami. Lets all send Nick Saben a fruit basket!

    Don't get me wrong, I'm glad Joey's gone, I just wish we had more to show for our #3 overall pick than a conditional 6th rounder and 4 losing seasons.

    I still think Joey could have been a serviceable QB for the Lions under Martz, but once he decided he wanted out, I wanted him to be gone as soon as possible to avoid being even more of a distraction and so that we could hopefully get an additional mid round pick for him in this year's draft. Well so much for that. But atleast its over.... until we play Miami next year.

    Yep, that sums up my thoughts as well... he could be a solid QB with a decent O-line and surrounding talent.... Joey got Scott Mitchellitis with the flood in his backfield... and tough fans... same thing happened to Batch...
    At some point you have to look beyond the QB.... he was a hellofa good college gunner... there are others responsible besides just Joey.

    Good riddance.

    I think he will stink with Miami. I don't see what will get him to stop focusing on one receiver and giving away the play. I also don't see why his teammates will suddenly respect him.

    We'll see. Either way, it was time to move on.:nod:

    Appropriate too. Church is on Sundays. :)

    This city (yes, Windsor is a suburb of Detroit ;) ) will embrace a winner. They are dying for a winner.

    Was it all Joey? No way. Did he make me feel like he would ever be better than average? No way. The best athletes are obvious superior talents (Barry Sanders, Tim Duncan), or they have a strong will combined with a charisma and/or extreme attitude (Artest, Sheed, Favre, Elway).

    Despite being the nicest guy in the history of the NFL, Joey had neither set of attributes.

    Glad to see Millen taking a page out of Joe Dumars' book of success: Trade a player that doesn't want to be here. Maybe Harrington and Darko can hang out in South Beach together.

    ringtone: "Hello moto" (bad digital dance beat ensues)

    Darko, flips open his cell, "hi?"
    Joey, "Hey Darko, it's me, Joey Harrington!"
    Darko, "hi"
    Joey, "Hello!"
    Darko, "hi"
    Joey, "I just wanted to tell you I have been traded to the Miami Dolphins!"
    Darko, "thats good man, you just vant to play"
    Joey, "Exactly Darko. I got so tired of being the escape goat in Detroit. Did you know they chanted 'Joey Sucks' when I played?"
    Darko, "Joey sucks..."
    Joey, "Yeah, they would do it really loud. I even caught my offensive linemen bobbing their heads to the chant!"
    Darko, "Pistons made Darko bobblehead"
    Joey, "That's neat man. So, since we are both from Detroit and I thought maybe we could hang out."
    Darko, "Sure...."
    Joey, "Maybe we can catch a concerto or take in a meal at a fine dining establishment."
    Darko (excited), "Maybe we ride in the fire truck!"
    Joey, "Absolutely D, we gotta stick together down here. By the way, do you play any instruments? I'm pretty good on the piano. Maybe we could start a band!"
    Darko, "Do you know Ace of Base?"
    Joey, "Nope, but if it is anything like Billy Joel or Barry Manilow, I could probably download the sheet music online!"
    Darko, "Internet is bad. Detroit fans make websites to hate Darko. Bad places like www.humanvictorycigar.com "
    Joey, "Don't worry Darko, those Detroit fans can't attack us now"
    Darko, "Ok Joey"
    Joey, "So I'll give you a call next week, or if you want, give me a call. Here is my number. 555-1212"
    Darko, "Ok, I will put it in my cell. Hold on." (presses hang up, then enters # in block list)

    Joey, "Gee, thats great. I'm all setup now. Me and Darko. We're gunna show the world!"

    Darko, "In Detroit, I am good but no playing. Joey playing really bad. No firetruck ride for you Joey!"

    When asked why Joey didn't want to go to Cleveland a possibly be the starter, Joey said "They shoot the piano player up there".

    I think as long as he has more than one reciever that can catch the ball and run his routes, that shouldn't be a problem.
