Leftwich, even with a broken leg, can sling the ball.

People talk about Ben holding on to the ball too long. OMG, Byron holds the ball longer than Ben just during his delivery. What is it with this major league pitcher full windup stuff? SLOW ....

The Ravens aren't going to give him time to establish a rhythm, unfortunately. With our shaky pass blocking, an immobile QB with a painfully slow release could be a recipe for disaster. If Haley has any tricks for adjusting for personnel, now is the time to pull them out.

Count me among those who feel Charlie Batch is by far the better choice. Tomlin's attitude towards Batch is a mystery to me; the man has proven himself many times over.

that's like 10 years ago when he was a young buck. highly doubt he can do that now (although i won't doubt his grit, took some balls to stay on the field after that)

Leftwich is only two years older than Ben.

we would have had to use a 3rd round draft choice on Cousins to get him, that's not "really late".

...Just sayin!

And who did the Steelers draft in the 3rd round?Spence doesn't seem to be doing much so Cousins wouldn't have been a waste.
