    Sunday NFL countdown reported that although Culpepper might be out all year Joey Harrington shouldn't feel comfortable especially if he keeps throwing int's...apparently the dolphins are anxious to get a look at the promising 3rd year qb cleo lemon

    Wow, didn't see that coming. That's VERY interesting. I wonder how Cleo would do.

    Boy it would be funny to see the reactions of the Harrington fan posters that migrated to the board when Joey got traded here if that happened. Mass exodus.

    Personally i want to see Lemon in there, we are not going to win out the rest of the season as some dream. I think and have always thought that there is something about this kid and i want to find out for sure. He is a mobile QB and that would make our offense that more versatile, put him in we got nothin to lose IMO.

    Lets see what Lemon has!!!!!!!!

    This season is for crap. Keeping Joey in will increase what we have to give detroit due to playing time.

    It is time to see what we have in Cleo. I had a dream the other night and it went like the movie Any Given Sunday. Cleo was the mobile Willie Beamon, and we actually made something of the season.

    We have nothing to lose. Lets get him some playing time and see what we have!

    Except that Saban will lose a lot of his players if he throws in the towel now.

    Despite the record there are still plenty of players on this team that want to win, especially if they haven't been mathematically eliminated yet.

    They've seen enough of Lemon to have a good idea of what he can bring to the table. If they want to start him a game or two at the end of the year, that should be enough. They don't need to spend half a season to see an audition.

    Replacing the receiving corps would make more sense. Do you think that Cleo would hit those guys in other spots of their hands that don't result in int's? :rolleyes2

    Hey heres a thought lets NOT juggle QB'S and have QB in there more then a few weeks. I SWEAR if Flemon comes in it would have to be the worst coaching move in the world. Why put Joey in to learn players tendencies and behaviours if your just gonna put flemon lemon in. Sounds pretty stupid.

    MOst of the int's weren't his fault at all,atleast 3 of them went off one of the Dolphins recievers and into the defenses hands.....it's not Harringtons fault that the recievers can't hold onto the ball.

    I just saw this posted on Rotowire also.

    http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playernews.aspx?sport=NFL

    I say we give him a shot too, if Harrington struggles. Shoot, I say we give our second and third stringers a little more playing time. It will help us out for next year, for our Super Bowl run.

    LOL, I don't believe this for a second...it would be interesting to see Cleo get a shot but I don't think we see Lemon unless Harrington get's hurt.

    I seriously doubt Saban will end pulling Harrington, that is unless he somehow gets too banged up to continue starting. That's always a possibility with this OL....

    PHINZ RULE!!!!

    Cleo, the Dolphins version of Tom Brady. :eek: Yeah I wish.

    You don't throw the Lemon to the dogs like that. Maybe if Joey is struggling, thats bout it.

    Hey after seeing what Tony Romo did for the Cowboys, I think any coach would be intrigued in seeing what they have in an untested player. There's absolutely no negative to do so. This team is pure garbage this year, so why not see if there is in fact a diamond in the rough. Guys like Jake Delhomme and Kurt Warner needed to be given a chance too. If Lemon fails, so what? That's what is expected of an undrafted player.

    Throwing Lemon out there is NOT the equivalent of throwing in the towel. They traded 6th round picks for both Harrington and Lemon. Harrington they gave a higher salary because he's tested and they know more of what they have in him...but the investment is still the same.

    They're high on Lemon, always have been, as have been the Chargers coaches, and if we continue struggling with Harrington yes...we toss Lemon out there to see if he is BETTER.

    Throwing in the towel would be throwing in a guy who you KNOW will not play better but who you just want to get experience so that maybe in the future he plays better.

    That wouldn't be the case here. Lemon would be out there because they think he can play better right now, not a year from now.

    Well, if we're 1-10 or 2-9.....what difference does it make at that point. If it comes to those records, I would rather see Cleo just to see if he has anything. Probably not, but you never know.

    That's if they continue to struggle with Harrington. In that scenario then the players wouldn't certainly mind the change either.

    But I don't think you make the change until this team is mathematically eliminated (which, granted, isn't too far off) or they know Joey isn't going to improve enough to make any difference.

    I guess I saw a different preseason than everybody else. What did Lemon do, and who did he do it against? Third stringers? QB is the least of our worries right now. Like lemon is going to come in and make our secondary improve, or our line will start opening holes for our RBs, and our receivers will be able to catch all of a sudden. Joe's doing fine with what he has. Yeah, he needs to improve his play. But there are more important areas that need tending to right now. Lemon is more mobile. Great, now we can have our QB running around in the backfield before he throws a ball for our receivers to tip up for an interception. Man, the media is having a fun time with some of you guys.

    Do you know something we don't? How can you use a general statement and throw Cleo under the bus without seeing what he can do. Your statement makes it sound like you are Nick Saban.:shakeno:

    :lol:

    After Cleo gets in and flails the usual crew on here will be hollering for Vick.

    After Vick flails everyone on here would be hollering to bring back Brock Berlin.

    I could go on.....

    IMO, Lemon is a clear long term project.
    This guy has shown nothing hinting he's ready to lead a team in regular season play.

    There's 2 QB's were looking at here, Culpepper and Harrington. Casserly on NFL today reported talking the the Phins which told them they have no plans to put Culpepper in IR and that they really want to get him back in the mix this year.

    Smart plan and hopefully that is what will happen.

    Wouldn't it be great if Cleo came out there and lit it up? Imagine the caps space it would free up! :lol:

    Well as soon as Saban brought Joey in, you ColdPooper fan posters started getting paranoid and you guys tried to promote a Cleo rumor. Remember?

    Now it's funny to see your continued boo-hoo reaction as Joey Harrington has taken the starting job... Go ahead eat another mouthful of CROW :sidelol:
