Just heard a report that David Garrard will be the starting QB for Jacksonville and Byron Leftwich will be released or traded.

Who thinks Leftwich would be an upgrade to our QB personnell?

He's a running QB and wouldn't fit in to our plays.....that being said we do need someone to run if our O line doesn't improve

How much better would he be than Huard or Croyle? Is it me or does he have a problem with overthowing the deep ball? I personally think he was overrated coming out of college. What is it with these Marshall QBs?

Leftwich is the one who is available...not Garrard. Leftwich is anything but a running QB. He's a stiff. He has a cannon of an arm, but his throwing mechanics and accuracy are atrocious. He'll make a decent back up somewhere, but he's got to have time in the pocket to have success. The only place I can think of where he'd be an upgrade is either Minnesota or Cleveland.

He would be a reliable backup...we may need a few QB's with this O line

Leftwich was actually released yesterday...so whoever wants him doesn't have to give up a draft pick or anything...however, I have to think he's going to go somewhere with a good O-line, because no one else would be able to give him a chance...

Ideally, Leftwich would want to go somewhere with a good offensive line. However, teams that have strong pass-protection probably have guys that they like. If you have a good set of pass-protectors, your quarterbacks tend to have more success.

Either way, I think that the Chiefs are definitely interested in some quarterback who has been cut. No NFL team carries just two quarterbacks into a season. Not that I'm aware of.

Well for one example Cincinnati could be interested...they just dumped their backup, and traded for Ryan Fitzpatrick. They have a 5th round rookie as #3. Odds are they could move the 5th round rookie down to the practice squad, bring in Leftwich and at least have a little experience behind Palmer.

True. That's a great example. We'll have to wait and see what happens.
