Everybody in TB was terrible!
BL was fine is Pittsburgh the season before.
So I would not write him off based on his
play in TB last season.

Who wouldn't look bad in Tampa Bay last year? Besides not having a particuarly talented team that was one of the worst coaching staffs ever assembled.

What would be wrong with bringing back Leftwich and have he and Dixon compete for the back-up job? Better man through OTA's and training camp gets the job.

True but TB doesn't have 2 SB MVP 1,000 WR's, a star in the making #3 WR, A stud at TE and a 1000 yd RB.

I would love to have Lefty back, as stated previously Lefty was bad on a bad Tampa team and he was good on a good Steeler team. Bring him back for experience and competition for Dixon.

That's like saying that Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn only looked bad in Cleveland because they were on a terrible team.

Just like Fansince said, there was a reason why Lefty was available when the Steelers signed him. His career QB rating of 79.6 should tell you something. I'd take him as 3rd string, nothing more.

Leftwich was really valuable two years ago and I was happy with how he performed in the backup role, but he's two years older now. I don't think he can stick around too much longer. I'd like to see him come in and compete with Dixon. Veteran leadership is underrated, especially with a young kid like Dixon on the roster competing for the backup job. Letwich is a good character guy and has a ton of experience. It can only benefit us to bring him back.

The point here is HE IS NOT A STARTER but can do a good job off the bench. Isay give him a shot.

C'mon A guy with 1 career start gives us our best chance over a Vet like Leftwitch...No way...
