    Its funny how Joey's performance will probably be lambasted on the forums and in the media, but guys who play below his level (Mike Vick anyone?) will continue to start and go unscathed from criticism.

    How many sacks and fumbles did Joey suffer, compared to Culpepper? How bad is the Dolphin's o-line now that someone else is behind center? And their running game?

    Sometimes it isn't all the quarterbacks fault... and sometimes it is.

    That was a pretty good performance today by Joey. It was gratifying because of the disparaging and snide remarks directed toward him the last couple of weeks by the talking heads, some ex jocks included. I for one, don't understand all the negativity aimed at the man.

    One interception falls into the unearned category -- in and out of the hands of the receiver. That was a hec of a fourth quarter he had -- firing the ball the way he did. Speaking of fourth quarters, Drew Brees was something like 11 for 12 in crunch time.

    Harrington was released by the Dolphins. Looks like the job belongs to Culpepper. -good luck Miami!

    Harrington is now definitely relegated to the Tim Couch position in the Caste System; officially labeled a "bust," with no chance of being named the starter anywhere in the league. He will be lucky to be a backup somewhere. I say that with no disrespect intended towards him; he produced inconsistently under adverse circumstances, but the reality is that as a white, highly drafted QB, he had to produce right away to avoid that "bust" label that the jock-sniffing media loves.

    I think this is going to pave the way for Miami to draft Brady Quinn. Culpepper blows, and I think the new coach knows that. lets just hope he finds a way to land him in the draft

    You have to love Brady Quinn, he's white and proud of it. From his behaviour, to his clothing, to his manners and way of speaking, even to his love of surfing. This kid is not influenced by blacks at all and he regects behaving like them as some whites do.

    I heard Miami might be looking at Trent Green.

    Brady is my favorite athlete in this year's draft. Would love to see him end up with the Cleveland Browns, since I live about 45 minutes from the stadium.He just had a workout in front of Romeo Crennell and he said he was impressed with Brady and that he could make "all the throws" that a NFL qb needs to make. Romeo has a close relationship with Charlie Weiss and that may influence his draft day decision. Brady grew up in nearby Mentor, Ohio and wants to play for the Browns.
