Too bad, so sad

I know it was a crappy game, but do you suppose there's any way Joey Harrington gave himself a chance with the Lions next year after that game-winning drive on Saturday? I realize it wouldn't have happened without Roy Williams. But I couldn't help but feel a gurgle of excitement. (Or was that too much rum in the egg nog?) Could there be more Harrington-to-Williams highlights in the Lions' future? Oh, what could have been...

By the way, how badly are the Lions going to get stomped by the Steelers this Sunday? The Steelers need a win to ensure a playoff spot, while the Lions just want this slog to be mercifully over. If you're still playing fantasy football, put your Steelers in the lineup.

    The more I think about it, the more it seems unlikely to me they're going to cut Harrington. Aside from that INT he threw in the first quarter, he looked really sharp. Again. There are too few guys out there with good arms and plenty of brains to give up on ANYONE who has those attributes.

    When you consider that when they ditch Garcia, they're left with Harrington and Orlovsky, it seems unlikely that they'd waste their cap room and either sign *two* new free agent QBs or sign one and draft one.

    If Williams can get some focus and not drop those easy 30-50 yard bombs every so often (I think he's had 3-5 of those this year), there's no reason Harrington-Williams can't be a particularly good combo next year...especially if the Lions spend their first round draft pick wisely on a stud lineman.

    I don't know if I'd say he couldn't have done it without Roy, but maybe in spite of Roy. He dropped 4-5 passes in the first half. He deserves credit for the 3 big ones he made in the second half, but Joey gets a lot of credit for getting them to overcome those drops (and the others, of course RW isn't the only one to blame).
