Monday Morning QB
A couple of mentions in Peter King
's MMQB column:
THE AWARDS SECTION
Offensive Player of the Week
Detroit QB Joey Harrington. OK, if he's going to be lambasted for his incompetence over the past four seasons, let's give him one moment in the sun, shall we? (Even though that moment was in a dome.) Playing in front of the hostile home folks, Harrington went 21-of-31 for 231 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Detroit's 29-21 win over the Cardinals. Granted, it's Arizona, but here's my view: If Nomar Garciaparra was in a two-year slump, went down to Iowa to find his swing and hit three jacks in one game against the Nashville Sounds, it's still a good game.
STAT OF THE WEEK II
The Arizona Cardinals got their first rushing touchdown of the season on Sunday. In Week 10. Third quarter: J.J. Arrington burrowed in from a yard. Imagine getting your first rushing touchdown as a team on Nov. 13.
Nothing like getting some attention from the national press, huh?
Everybody knows that... the Bird is the Word!
