Re: Jags done with Leftwich

I guess I am the only one (other than jacksonville) that sees Leftwich for what he is...CRAP!
The man has never threw for over 3000 yards, nor over 15 tds. He was too highly touted out of Marshall and some people here compared him to Marino. I, of course, laughed at that, and I was right. Leftwich was overrated then, and he is likely still a little overrated. He is USELESS people! I'd rather have Palmer than Leftwich, it would not be wise to bring in this guy.

No, no, no you're not alone. Leftwich would be an okay backup but those that don't want him here because he may be a threat to Campbell? Please. If he wasn't a threat to Garard why would he be a threat to Campbell? But, I wouldn't rate him below Palmer. There were a couple of guys I went to grade school with that I wouldn't rate below Palmer at this early stage. This is the perfect example of why we may get more for Brunell than people think. Other teams know he is old and less mobile, but they don't have the history with him that we do. No one is going to boo him in their stadium. Likewise Leftwich has a better reputation with us than he does in Florida. I suspect it wouldn't take too long for that to change, though. I vote no on Leftwich.

Re: Jags done with Leftwich

Wow, that's a shocker, espeically at this late stage. I don't think Garrard is any good but what do I know? He reminds me of Seneca Wallace of the Seachickens.

Re: Jags done with Leftwich

Leftwich isn't bad at all. I prefer my quarterbacks to be able to play a 16 game season - which Leftwich has never done, but to each his own.

We should get something straight though. No one is going to trade for Leftwich. He carries a $5.1 million base salary, and has practically no options for starting this year. Even if you have the cap space, Leftwich won't want to sign long-term (for fear he's being undervalued) and has no reason to sign a one year deal for lesser monies out of the goodness of his heart. If he's cut - which will definitely happen before opening day rosters are set (lest he be guaranteed his full salary as termination pay under the CBA) - then there are a number of teams where he'd have a better chance at playing than here. Minnesota's been mentioned, but how about Atlanta? Is Seattle a good fit? I know Byron went to high school in the district, but I don't think that's enough impetus (look it up) to be a guaranteed third stringer.

Re: Jags done with Leftwich

Leftwich is nothing but a mediocre starting QB in this league. He'll never be more than that. At this stage in his career, he is what he is. There's no upside to having him on the Redskins - we want Campbell to develop into a franchise QB and we don't want a guy like Leftwich steaming because he's backing up a young guy.

Let's all put on our thinking caps here, people. Just because a guy becomes available doesn't mean the Washington Redskins need to acquire him.

WELL SAID! This fantasy football complex must stop in D.C. we need to deal Brunnell for highest value pick and move on...not Leftwich. JC is our guy long term.

Re: Jags done with Leftwich

I think Leftwich will make a good backup for somebody, but I'm not sure it's in our best interests to have him here in D.C.

Re: Jags done with Leftwich

IMO Leftwich has always been overrated. The only thing that's good about him is he is big and stands tall in the pocket. He is not as mobile as people people think he is and he has just never really been able to get the job done. And why would we trade ARE for Reggie Williams? Whoever said that really must have little knowledge of Reggie Williams.

I agree he's always been overrated.

Garrard simply outplayed him over the past few years and the Jags seem to respond to his leadership more than Leftwich.

I don't know about this move. Garrard had his chance last year and he didn't play all that well. I know he has had a great pre season but to just get rid of Leftwich is kind of crazy. IMO he still has value.
