Byron Leftwich Benched
 
ESPN reports that Byron has been benched for Josh Johnson against the Redskins.

Oh how they mighty have fallen.

There was a reason he was available when Batch went down with a busted collarbone in preseason last year....

Thing is, that although Lefty hasn't played up to the potential he showed as backup for us last year, the bucs 3 game skid isn't all his fault. When the defense doesn't tackle and Lefty is getting hit from every direction, the offense is bound to sputter.

Byron is being the scapegoat for a crappy team. After this year he will back where he belongs.

Yeah but he just didn't lose his starting job, he's THIRD on the depth chart now.

Nope, he's just not starting QB material. He proved that in Jacksonville. Excellent backup, though. Jake Plummer would still be drawing a paycheck from the NFL if he would've swallowed his pride long enough to realize he was the same way.
