Joey "Bleeping" Harrington

Before the NFL season began I was having an argument with a friend about overrated quarterbacks, and I chose Byron Leftwich as my guy. Lo and behold, Leftwich was released by the Jacksonville Jaguars about a week later. Down the road in Atlanta the Falcons were having their own issues at QB. Enter Joey Harrington. Harrington took over for Michael Vick after Vick thought it would be cool to hang dogs, but I digress. Harrington, I thought, would rally this Falcons team and lead them to an improbable playoff run. I thought, but then again I’m a fool. The Falcons are 0-2, and Harrington is his old self…horible. So now the Falcons are contemplating signing the unemployed Byron Leftwich. The way they look at it, even a lawn chair could do better than Joey. And another thing, do grown men really want someone named Joey to lead them? How about Joe or Joseph? Joey is that annoying kid next door with the hot sister you always wanted to date. Joey is the hot chick that you wanted to date. Joey isn’t a grown man throwing touchdown passes in the NFL. That job is reserved for a Joe, i.e. Joe Namath, Joe Montana or Joe Theismann. Joey is a Buttafuoco. So let’s see if Leftwich can right this ship. I never thought I would be saying those words, but desperate times, well you know.

Vick Apologizes, "I WILL REDEEM MYSELF!"

Michael Vick apologizes Monday morning after pleading guilty in federal court. Mr. I’m sorry, a.k.a. I will redeem myself after lying to my boss, the commissioner, my teammates, the fans and those poor dogs he strangled, electrocuted and hung. Talk about an insincere apology. At least Kobe cried.

Does this look like someone who is sorry for what he did or sorry for being caught? Only a face a mother could love or man’s best friend. Well at least a mother. How sad that someone with that much money and talent (did someone say overrated) pissed it all away. He should be banned from the league for life! Enjoy the penn, say hi to the fellas.
