Petrino: Harrington Is Still The Team’s Starting Quarterback

Joey Harrington (13) passes as he is pressured by Tennessee Titans defensive end Travis LaBoy

Falcons head coach Bobby Petrino says his starting quarterback will continue to be Joey Harrington heading into a Monday night matchup with the New York Giants.  The quarterback controversy stemming from a decision to bench Harrington for third string fill-in Byron Leftwich, plus critical remarks about the team from tight end and team captain Alge Crumpler, are being addressed, says Petrino.  Petrino says the team should stay with Harrington, who understands the team’s offense and how to execute it.  So far this season, Harrington has completed 105-of-156 passes for a 1,070 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions.
