Default Re: Byron Leftwich will start

ESPN proposes Haley find an old Arians game plan for Sunday night

Leftwich isn't a good fit for Haley's offense

If you know anything about Todd Haley's offense after eight games, it's a system that relies on short and quick passes. If you know anything about Leftwich after watching him throw a couple of passes, it's the fact that he doesn't get rid of the ball quickly.

In fact, Leftwich might have the slowest release in NFL history...

Leftwich's strong arm and desire to throw deep is better suited for the Steelers' old offense under Bruce Arians...

The Steelers are going with Leftwich and saying they are confident that the offense won't have to change with a change at quarterback. But, if the Steelers want to maintain success on offense, they're going to have to adapt to Leftwich's strengths.
