Default Steelers looking at Leftwich

Quote:
Byron Leftwich, a former starter for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Atlanta Falcons, is scheduled to arrive in Pittsburgh for a workout today and possibly sign with the Steelers. Atlanta released Leftwich, 28, in February.

Batch should be back in six weeks and Dixon, though he will take a while to learn the system and transition, played well imo. Personally I am not overly concerned.

Falcons kept Joey Harrington and let Leftwich go - hope Charlie is a fast healer

I hope we don't sign Leftwich. Horrible choice!

They'll shop no doubt.

Not smart. The doctors said 4-6 weeks meaning he misses the preseason and maybe 1-2 regular season games. Besides, Leftwich is a downgrade to Batch. He is on the level of ex Steeler QBs like Malone, Stewart, Maddox. How about not getting anyone since there is no good QBs left. I am sure Jacksonville misses him

Chris Simms? Tampa will probably cut him right at the end of training camp.

I don't think Leftwich has the skills any more, but I've always admired the guy's heart and competitive spirit.

Ken Anderson has worked with Leftwich at the Jags. Sounds like he will get first workout as a result of the past association

Ben stepped up his rookie year and we know what happened with that. Batch will be back,and as a starter for our team is unmatched.What is he 3-0 or 4-0 as a starter?Dixon is here for a reason,if he needs to get plunged into a game headfirst,then so be it.Leftwich is not an answer for us,i'm sorry.Get ready Dixon!!!!!!!!!!!!thats all i can say.
