    They already have a good TE in Marcus Pollard; they need an upgrade in their secondary the most, and Michael Huff is their guy.

    Your right about doing something about there quarterbacks. I wouldn't mind seeing them draft Jacobs out of Bowling Green. I have no idea if they have been looking at him or not. I am still upset about them releasing Quincy Carter.

    But he's going to want waaaay more money than any backup is entitled to. Harrington to the Jets, perhaps? They'll overpay. Or how about Dallas? Henson hasn't proved squat, and Bledsoe's getting rickety.

    G'bye, Harrington.

    Do you think he and his agent got the hint?

    I think that getting Kitna as a back-up to Harrington shows that the front office is actually looking to work on Harrington. Here's a guy who is talented, but it also an excellent back-up. He doesn't have the head-swell that Garcia had going on, and I don't think he'll undermine the team.

    Garcia was Mariucci's golden boy, and this was not helpful to a young QB who had to deal with a dodgey O-line as well.

    If Detroit is serious about any of their QB's they need to work the O-line. The good thing about Martz is that this is the sort of thing he will insist on, and Matt Millen should have less say in the coaching!
    Problem: Harrington wants out of Detroit, and McCown is getting a look from the Lions.
    As I pointed out earlier, there's no way Kitna would have taken this job if he didn't believe that he had a legitimate shot at being the starter. Kitna would have stayed in Cincinnati if they had told him he would be a backup.

    Kind of adds a new wrinkle to the story, doesn't it?

    I personally think that Harrington would be a lot better if they fixed that line.

    The big complaint that I have with Kitna is that he isn't very fast in making his checkdowns. He can be indecisive, and he can be forced to make bad throws. He's got good pocket presence, but throwing the ball on the run is a weakness. The Lions will need to give him an extra half second to get the ball into play. The other thing is that the Lions receivers are better with vertical routes, and that's not going to jive well with Kitna. The Lions would be well served to invest in a good TE in the upper rounds of the draft.
    Good for Kitna, the guy is a class act.

    Ive been watching Kitna since his days in Seattle, and for the most part I do agree with you. His in game reads are a little slow, and he just isent as physically gifted as you would like (compared to Carson Palmer anyway).

    I think a coach like Martz can hide his weaknesses though.

    The management still cannot grasp the concept that interior linemen dictate the game.
    doesn't help 'em that damien woody has underperformed-- they paid him a fat chunk to solidify the interior of that line, and a fat chunk is exactly what he's been for them. . .

    i would agree that if anyone can get production out of that personnel, it's mike martz. . . i also think that kitna has more poise and leadership ability than harrington. cross detroit off of the list of teams who could take cutler. . . they could possibly take vernon davis and grab an OL in the 2nd, but i think they might want to go defense in the 1st now. . . michael huff could be a real possibility if he's still on the board. . .
