"Harrington, the former starting Detroit Lions quarterback, will be released or traded largely because of his inability to be a valued leader and because of his failure to adapt to a cohesive team-wide chemistry."
Inability to be a valued leader? Failure to adapt to a cohesive chemistry? What chemistry? What cohesiveness? Who offered to "value" him?
Do people in Detroit live there only because they've convinced themselves that it isn't a cesspool?

When Joey was drafted by Detroit, we all knew it was about the worst place a promising rookie could land. We hoped it would work out, but that deck is so stacked for failure. I hope it did not ruin the guy, but my guess is he will emerge stronger. Give him a little backup time with a seasoned veteran QB and he will blossom. Just my opinion.
I agree that Joey did not get the chance to really take advantage of his talent in Detroit, but at the same time, I saw a lot of things that he could've done better. His passing was sometimes eratic, and he didn't take charge like he should have. I didn't see him being vocal all of the time. That being said, he has a lot of potential that could still be tapped.
