Who signs Byron Leftwich?
 
I think there wont be a huge demand for a starting QB in FA this season. Who ultimately gets Byron? And how much is it gonna cost?

Heres hopeing he signs with the browns......

Other teams needing a starting QB (not necessarily him)
Raiders (looking at Russell?)
Lions (might not get one this year)
Texans (will stick with Carr 1 more yr?)

Finsfan79 01-24-2007 08:13 PM

is he a FA? Miami might look at him.

GiantRutgersFan 01-24-2007 08:13 PM

I dont think Leftwich in Cleveland would be good at all.

You guys need a franchise QB. you are very much rebuilding and you cant do that around a mediocre QB like Leftwich. I like the guy and think that he didnt really get a fair shot but no, I dont think its a good idea at all. You should just draft Brady Quinn imo.


I think a team like the Ravens, Cheifs or Bears would be a good fit for him. a stopgap for a few seasons while they still have a chance to make a run.

Doesn't he have 1 more year left on his contract?

He isn't a FA and I just can't see Jacksonville getting rid of him with only Garrard and Gray left on the roster.

Im pretty sure I read that they are going to let Gerrard and gray battle it out?

No, you've just heard rumors. Leftwich is in the last year of his contract. Scott thinks Leftwich is gone, I and other Jaguars fans think he will stay.

No matter what I think, don't count on having Leftwich available. It would involve a trade of some sort, anyways.

Gray????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!??????????????

They are going to cast off Byron Leftwich for Quinn Gray??

Bearsfan123 01-24-2007 09:22 PM

Whats going on with David Carr and Houston? anything? because on Cold Pizza they said Garcia might go to Houston and fight for the starting job. (I doubt it but if theres a chance hes available...)

eazyb81 01-24-2007 09:33 PM

First off, I don't view Leftwich as a "mediocre" QB - more so a guy that is in a bad situation and hasn't reached his prime.

Although I don't know how likely it is, I really like the idea of Leftwich going to Cleveland. He would have two potentially elite downfield threats in Braylon and KW2, and possibly an elite RB in AD. I like his chances of success in that situation, especially if they can improve the line.

SeanTaylorRIP 01-24-2007 10:04 PM

I know none of them wanna hear it cause they love Boller but why not the Ravens.

TheChampIsHere 01-24-2007 10:40 PM

im defnitely hopin the Raiders pull a deal for him

JagHombre22 01-24-2007 10:43 PM

get byron into a healthy situation and you've found your man...this was evident two seasons ago when he broke his ankle against arizona...he was 15 td's and 5 int's...on pace for 23 td's and 9 int's...I can only imagine what he could do when healthy and he's got all the tools around him now and will soon have probably a high priced WR via FA or through the draft...he's in the last year of his rookie contract and if he totally sucks then they'll let him walk but if he lights it up like he was doing back in 2005 then they'll resign him...he's not a bad qb just a qb with bad luck...had the Jaguars had him instead of David "Jerrard", they would've been in the playoffs...no doubt....

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.

bearsfan_51 01-24-2007 11:29 PM

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.

portermvp84 01-24-2007 11:31 PM

They should give Kerry Collins a shot lol.

01-25-2007 10:36 AM

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.

Komp 01-25-2007 10:42 AM

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.

portermvp84 01-25-2007 10:44 AM

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?
