Harrington has been a whipping boy and failure in both Detroit and Atlanta, the two biggest FAILs in professional football (or at least "arguably"). Now he joins the corps of crummy QBs that the Baltimore Ravens host.
Due to the current uncertainty with their quarterbacks, the Ravens brought in Harrington, Chris Simms (released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and Todd Bouman (released by the Jaguars) for workouts Monday and decided to sign Harrington because he has the most recent playing experience.Seriously? Harrington outperformed anyone?
UPDATE: Florio is saying that this report is false. I sincerely hope so. Because, well ... SCOOOOOOP.
Fortunately the Ravens aren't totally hosed, as they're still going to be start Joe Flacco during the opener.
"It wouldn't be realistic to have one of those two guys as a starter, for sure. If they can back up, I think that would be an upset," coach John Harbaugh said Monday.And enter Joey. Still. Ravens fans ... you are one Joe Flacco pulled hammy or tweaked thumb away from seeing Joesph J. Harrington for the next few weeks. Because, regardless of how tough Flacco is, Baltimore isn't going to risk crushing his development or their future to force him in a game.
[...]"We need a backup quarterback for the game," Harbaugh said.
