Anybody think it's strange that Byron Leftwich hasn't been picked up by anybody?
I'm pretty sure it was concluded across various boards that ManningEnvy is the Internet virus/worm bot creation of a disgruntled college aged nerd to infest the jock presence online with mind numbing logic and ****-erotic tendencies towards Peyton Manning.
Perhaps we should submit it to Symantec for investigation.
Whether this guy is a troll or not, he is right this time. I don't understand what Leftwich has done to make anyone believe he is anything but a bust in Jacksonville?
This isn't a 5th round pick we're talking about, he's a top 7 pick in the draft. And he's currently unemployed. Think about that, he can't find employment in a league desperate for quarterbacks.
And i understand the arguments to support him, he needs an oline bc he's not mobile and winds up, and is injury prone, but thats part of his package and you can't discount that when evaluating him.
We heard ppl say the same thing about Drew Bledsoe. The league has no vacancies for statues in the pocket, period. Leftwich was a statue.
And im not buying the oline argument. He had a good one in Jacksonville, like Bledsoe he just made it look worse than it really was. Same goes for any qb who holds teh ball too long. Any qb in the league would be great if they had all day to throw, so whats the point in that argument? Im not buying it.
He was immobile, injury prone, extremely slow release, could not put any touch on his balls (same velocity for every throw), and just didn't get the job done. He had a defense and a run game, 2 things that are a quarterback's best friend, and still didn't produce.
Was he absolutely terrible? No, he was ok, not the worst in the world, but not what a top 7 pick should be. At the end of the day, you expect a lot more than what he brought. So yes, he is a bust. I don't see how he wasn't. The man is unemployed as we speak. Thats all you need to know.
Anyway, it still surprises me. Unless he wants way too much money, isn't he worth having as a #3 QB?
he probably wants to be a starter somewhere, and no team is willing to grant him that privilege. he can maybe be a backup and try to win a starting job, but he probably doesn't want to do that and is letting his ego get in his way.
weird how teams like Minny and Chicago wouldn't even think about touching him. theres probably some red flags behind the scenes that us fans just don't know about.
very true, when i refer to Bledsoe, im referring to the washed up one that played in Dallas and Buffalo.
Hey, Bledsoe made a Pro Bowl in Buffalo! He had one great year (2002), which was his first in Buffalo. After that, a terrible offensive line spelled the end of his career. Is there a worse combination than an awful pass-blocking O-line and Drew Bledsoe in the pocket? I can't think of one.
I'm not surprised, I've hated on the man since he came in the league, he sucks.
how can you hate him? Never been in trouble with the law, he doesnt have an attitude, has good character, and has faught through injuries his entire football career... Being a potential bust isnt entirely his fault.
