DETROIT (AP) -- The stadium and the quarterback were different. The result was the same.
Anytime you throw a rookie in (as the Lions did with QB Joey Harrington) and he performs well (as he did today) it gives the fans hope for the future. The first thing a young player needs to do is get the respect of his team, and Harrington did that today. They lost the game and it will be a tough road, but it was one small step closer to where the Lions need to be.
