    This thread is pointless as Byron is not a FA, please lock.

        I think he would be a better upgrade than Derek Anderson and Charlie Frye.

          I'm seriously begining to question if some of you Browns fans even watch the Browns.

          Ok, you're going to replace a Quarterback who only managed to survive by running for his life on every play because the offensive line is terrible and you have no credible threat at runningback with a guy that is arguably the most immobile in the entire league? I mean seriously? Did you think about that for a second or did you just notice that Leftwich has a higher rating on Madden than Charlie and think "well there's an upgrade". I would say it makes no sense, but it actually makes less than no sense. Your idea makes negative sense, which isn't even possible. Congrats.


          Nobody cares about your stupid fantasy team.

              I think Derek Anderson can be the future there. He played well when he took over for Frye and was even said to be the next Tom Brady.<- (some stupid ESPN guy said that.) What they need is a franchise RB. feel bad for the jags. They were on th rise last year and now are slowly declining.

                Leave it to Bearsfan to act like the angry dad scolding his dumb child.

                But seriously, BF51 is right. You need oline in the worst way. Add dline to that too.

                People always forget that battles are won and lost in the trenches. The Browns have a great LB core, underrated secondary, great skill position players, but continually go 5-11 every year. Why? Because they have a doodoo oline and dline. Thats why.

                  hmmm

                  I'm a Raider fan and I want no part of Leftwich.

                  Garcia to the Texans? He's mobile which would help, but I highly doubt he wants to spend his last couple years as a professional football player running for his life.

                    Anderson did to well against the cheifs and against a few other teams to. He's a backup he's not going to be anything specila he'll win a couple games here and loose a couple there.

                    Like Madden Player was saying they need a franchise back and Ruben Droughns isn't cutting the mustard.

                      I don't think any Browns fans are saying to acquire Leftwich instead of improving the offensive line - they would like to do both. Assuming that they improve the O-line through the draft and/or free agency, do you really think Leftwich would not be an improvement at QB?

                        the jags have absolutly no reason to get rid of him. Garrard is not a better QB

                          Im personally not a big fan of Leftwich. He's immobile, he takes too long to make his decision, and he winds up too much. Defenses react to his wind up, thats why he's always getting those receivers hit. He also doesn't put any touch on the ball.

                          He's like Bledsoe. I don't think it can work.

                            If you're going to put money into improving the line, then give Charlie a shot to play behind it. He hasn't been given a fair chance at all considering that most games he's gotten absolutely creamed. I live in Northern Ohio, I watch the Browns every week, most of these questions are not hard to answer.

                            If they have a chance to draft Brady Quinn, fine, I understand that. He's an elite Quarterback and hopefully the Browns are tired of picking in the top 5 and aren't sure a chance like that will come again. That being said, Byron Leftwich is not an elite Quarterback, he's not even a very good Quarterback. Neither is Troy Smith. Neither is anyone else they are going to bring in outside of Quinn or Russell. Outside of those two, improve your game in the trenches, find a runningback that has talent (I like Droughns but come on, he's not a franchise back) and go with the two guys you have. Continuing the circle of Quarterbacks in Cleveland is NOT the answer.

                              I actually disagree. His immobility isn't an issue any more than it is the other immobile quarterbacks of the league. The difference is that Jacksonville's offensive line has been horribly inconsistent until this year, where they flourished under the tutelage of Mike Tice and Andy Heck. They turned into an elite unit.

                              As far as the windup is concerned...I don't see a problem with it, really. He's had a long windup all his life. He's played in the league for awhile now. He knows how to work around it. The receivers aren't hit because of the windup. They're getting hit because they're all big, possession receivers who can't gain seperation.

                              One thing thats really overlooked about Byron is his ability to see the field. He doesn't make a lot of "WTF?" decisions, and is able to see more than just his first option.

                                You know better than I do. Why isn't he panning out then? I don't get it. I understand the WRs drop balls and all, but even then, he's not scoring enough. I just assume that the windup is allowing DBs to break on the ball quicker and react to throws quicker.

                                And while he has immobility, what I noticed is a lack of pocket presence. Yes, alot of qbs have immobility, but thats overrated. Its your ability to step up and around in the pocket to create time thats important and I don't really see Leftwich do it.

                                Im just making assumptions based on what Ive seen. You have more knowledge on this matter than I do, so I'll take your word for it. But I just can't figure out why its not working if theres nothing wrong with Leftwich.
