Daunte Culpepper will be the third quarterback. Cleo Lemon will be the backup.
This is what I'm being told about how the Dolphins will handle this budding quarterback controversy.
1. If Harrington stinks today, there's no controversy.
2. If Harrington plays out of his mind against the Patriots, coach Nick Saban will say that is the reason the team got him, but that the job still belongs to Culpepper when he's healthy.
3. The club will admit it might have made a mistake in not going to Harrington earlier. Remember that Culpepper got hurt (brusied shoulder) against Buffalo Sept. 17 and still played the last two weeks.
That is the game plan, but remember that Miami hasn't been so great executing game plans this year.
My question to you: Do the Dolphins have a quarterback controversy on their hands if Harrington plays well?
And would you give the job back to Culpepper when he's healthy?
