Now THAT is intriguing. He'll command too much salary, and look for too long of a deal, but Harrison (even with diminishing skills), Holmes and Ward would be a formidable WR tandem.

Having someone get SHOT with you gun doesn't help you value to a team either.

I don't want this guy as our #3, he gets hurt too much.

He'll play in Philly, maybe Philly will get Harrison and Houshamama in the same off season and actually give their QB some weapons to throw to.

Did Archie Manning sign off on that move?

Maybe the "heater" he keeps bringing to practice is making other nervous?

Seriously, I think Harrison was a great player, but I would be leary of signing him. He might not have much left in the tank. I think if the Colts thought he could play up to his former level they would have kept him somehow.

Harrison at 80% as a #3 is > Nate Washington (at 100%) or Sweed (at 150%)

His best football is definitely behind him but Marvin Harrison is still a good player, as long as he stays healthy. I think he'd be a good fit for any team looking for that veteran experience.

Sounds as though your mind might be made up about Sweed? I was wondering if maybe the dropped balls has something to do with the wrist injury he suffered in college? Since this past season was his first, maybe it wasn't as healed as it should be. I really don't have a firm stance on him one way or the other. I am more concerned about his attitude than his skill. I hope he brings a good work ethic with him into the 2009 season. He sure has great players around him to help mold and mentor him. Anxious to see how he performs in 2009.

Sweed was innocent until proven guilty. By all accounts, he's a good kid, a hard worker, but his head just doesn't seem in the game to me, and it's not just the dropped passes, it's the dumb penalties. I wonder how many wrong routes he ran this year as well? What we've seen is probably only the tip of the iceberg.

Hope I'm wrong, but I'm just being pragmatic...

That is the impression I always got about Plaxico as well. He always came across to me as being "spacey" in the game...as though he was distracted and not concentrating/focusing.

Found this and I agree with what the poster is saying(it is from Oct)

http://nfl.fanhouse.com/2008/10/21/i...n-limas-sweed/


But it's time to take a deep breath and give the second-round pick a break. The reality is that rookie wide recievers are generally awful, and it often takes three seasons before an NFL receiver truly gets it. Sweed clearly hasn't gotten it yet, as he dropped too many passes during the preseason and has shown signs that the game right now is too fast for him. But eventually Sweed will catch up to the speed of the game, and when he does the drops will likely go away as well. If you don't believe me, check out this chart. It's a listing of the rookie receiving totals for 11 of the NFL's current top 20 receivers ranked by receiving yardage. As of right now, Sweed has already outperformed Devery Henderson and has Santana Moss and Vincent Jackson's rookie production in his sights.


Player Rec Yards
Roddy White 29 446
Santana Moss 2 40
Bernard Berrian 15 225
Steve Smith 10 154
Reggie Wayne 27 345
Vincent Jackson 3 59
Muhsin Muhammad 25 407
Devery Henderson 0 0
Brandon Marshall 20 309
T.J. Houshmandzadeh 21 228
Derrick Mason 14 186
