Update: Joey Harrington’s value in fantasy leagues deemed “still crappy”

Following the continued disastrous news out of Atlanta, back-up QB and now presumed Falcons starter Joey Harrington has surprisingly stood still among the fantasy ranks as millions of rabid adult males begin preparing their draft day moves 44 days before the season begins.

"I still think this is the year that everyone is better than Joey Harrington," said Eric Karabell, ESPN’s suave fantasy geek.  "Just look at the stats.  Year in and year out it’s been proven that pretty much anyone is better than Joey Harrington."

While not exactly getting ringing endorsements from the so-called experts, Harrington is a quarterback who endured Matt Millen’s breath for four years in Detroit while wearing a helmet mostly backwards and facing the turf.  It should come as no surprise to anyone he continues to remain positive.

"I grew my hair out man.  If that doesn’t speak to growth as a quarterback, I don’t know what does," he explained while slowly chewing his gum.  "This is the year of Jack, jesus, I mean Joey Harrington."

Falcons attendance is expected to drop 322% this season.

    I heard Joey Harrington’s old Times Square Heisman Trophy billboard now hangs in his bedroom above his Detroit Lions helmet bed.

    Forget the Madden curse, we’ve got a full-fledged Harrington curse. First his career in Detroit, then Culpepper, now Vick. Stand in front of Joey Harrington with potential and it’s demolished with 4 weeks.
