The "piano man," Joey Harrington, has landed a new gig in the birthplace of jazz. He'll be playing third fiddle behind Saints starting quarterback Drew Brees and backup Mark Brunell.

Now 2/3 of the Saints QB's have carved our defense up. I will never forget that game Brunell had against us and Harrington beat our butts last year.

Didn't Brunell break the consecutive completion record against us?

Yes he did and he was tied by the almighty David Carr in the same season or the season after IIRC.

Pretty much. I don't remember too much about that game but I think the majority of his passes were screens.

Hmmm, I looked up the record for most consecutive passes completed and it has:

Most Consecutive Passes Completed
24 Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia vs. N.Y. Giants (10), Nov. 28, 2004; vs. Green Bay (14), Dec. 5, 2004
22 Joe Montana, San Francisco vs. Cleveland (5), Nov. 29, 1987; vs. Green Bay (17), Dec. 6, 1987
Mark Brunell, Washington vs. Houston, Sept. 24, 2006
David Carr, Houston vs. Buffalo, Nov. 19, 2006
21 Rich Gannon, Oakland vs. Denver, Nov. 11, 2002

Oh, I get it now, McNabb and Montana completed their passes over a couple of games. N/M

Obviously he's third on the depth chart and he's infinitely more capable a backup than Tyler freaking Palko, so I don't mind the signing.

The only thing that worries me is Harrington's innate ability to become the starting quarterback wherever he goes. It's like he throws some sort of injury voodoo on the incumbent QB and takes over by default. Hopefully the voodoo already in place in N.O. will override or cancel this out. :voodoo:
