    Laugh all you want. Vick is an awful QB, although he has led the league in "Excuses made to explain his poor performance" for the last five years or so.

    Harrington, like Schaub before him, would give the Falcons a better chance to actually compete.

    I agree Vick is the bottom of the league for starting QB's, but I'd have to see Harrington play a full season successfuly before I'd start him over Vick, If I were a Falcons fan. I do think Harrington is a decent pickup for the Falcons and I hope Harrington gets a chance to play.

    Carr and Harrington could be back ups now but starters in the future

    probably Carr faster then Harrington

    Vick has never made an excuse. fans have

    Vick is a playmaking QB and he wins . why does he need to be like Peyton to be good? all that matters is winning games

    Isn't he like 38-28-1?

    With two playoff appearances (2-2) in a conference that's been pretty lousy since he came into the league?

    I stand corrected. He's an awesome QB and leader of men.

    Honestly, I'd start Mike Vick over Harrington in a heartbeat. But then again, I really don't care what the Falcons do.

    Vick's rushing ability alone makes him more dangerous then Harrington. As bad as vick can be, Joey is worse. Start Harrington over vick, lol:rolleyes:

    Joey Harrington is horrible.

    Vick is wildly overrated but there is no way Harrington should start over him. Schaub quite possibly should have but Joey Harringotn? He is a borderline starter at best in the Arena League, nevermind the NFL.

    Vick is the most overrated QB in football. That being said, unless he self-implodes he's still going to remain the starter in Atlanta.

    I hope you don't mean number one overall pick because Harrington was the third pick.

    Hey, I didn't say Harrington was any good. But Vick is that bad.

    Ditto. At least Vick can make plays/scramble. Harrington sucks all around.

    No I did not mean that and I don't think the writer did either.
