I agree for the most part with Migya - Harrington is not (and has not been) the kind of impact player we need on this team. I remember #32 writing a post in the offseason about how Al was way overrated and just cares about scoring and no other aspects of his game. I always thought that to be the case, and never wanted him either. Then people said he would thrive under this system, but he's proven to be the same one-dimensinal player he always has been. He's sloppy when handling the ball, and turn it over way too much when he backs guys down. He makes some nifty passes, but is inconsistent and ends up throwing a lot away, too.
With Jasikevicious showing he's pretty bad, Al being same old Al (tough still better than Dun and Murph), Jax being cancelled out by JRich and our plethora of wings, it doesn't seem like we've really improved as a team with this trade. I'm not saying it was a bad trade (twas a good one actually, if for no other reason than a little cap relief) but we essentially traded unwanted players for unwanted players (minus Ike and Powell- who I think could be pretty good), and haven't really gotten better.
