Harrington is the man, like it or not

Like it or not Falcons' fans, Joey Harrington is now your quarterback. The Falcons were in trouble this year even with Michael Vick under center, and now things look even worse.

Harrington, the third overall pick in 2002, is a very inconsistent passer. When he is on and in rhythm he can be a successful, but when he is cold he is a nightmare. The biggest problem with Harrington is that he does not see things develop or read the field well enough, which leads to poor decisions and turnovers. Time after time he displays mental breakdowns and erratic passing. Harrington doesn't throw a catchable ball and makes his target work too hard on what should be easy completions, and he doesn't feel pass rushers around him and takes a lot of sacks he should avoid.
