Graham Harrell seemed like a nice enough guy. He wasn’t overbearing, didn’t come off in the press as verbose, seemed like the kind of guy from next door.
He just wasn’t good enough to stick with the Green Bay Packers and back up one of the best, if not THE best quarterback in all the land. That’s why the Packers announced yesterday that they were going to cut him, essentially leaving the door open for Vince Young to be the Packers backup quarterback.
But what about Harrell? The nice guy’s name was all over Twitter yesterday; some nice comments, some realistically brutal.
What did you and other write about him?
Well today we’ve put together some of the tweets left about the former Packer. Check them out below, say goodbye to him and welcome Vince Young:
Dear Rex Ryan: Graham Harrell is available. Don’t laugh. He’s still better than what you’ve got.

Pretty impressive that once-downtrodden Vince Young has won Packers’ backup QB job http://t.co/yHa1TGMGQ4

Packers cutting Graham Harrell… Business is business, but can’t help but to feel sorry for the guy. Good luck to him.

I don’t say this often… But I honestly feel bad for Graham Harrell. He’s a good guy and I liked to root for him. Just didn’t have it.

Has the “Vikings will be signing Graham Harrell” joke already been made? Cuz I’m making it now.

I’m quite glad that this Graham Harrell thing is over. He looked AWFUL last night and has basically looked that way in games that mattered.

Graham Harrell played his way out the door at Green Bay. Vince Young is almost surely a lock at the backup for Aaron Rodgers. B.J. Coleman?

Hoping for the best for Graham Harrell and all his future endeavors. Took a lot of criticism in his time here.

Thank god Graham Harrell was released. Having him as the number 2 QB was scary as all hell.
