    Default How good is Lefty?

    I was just wondering where Lefty would be if not with the Steelers. I'm not sure which team would take him(N.E. , Philly) but I think he would be in demand as a #2QB. As far as being made of glass he took a really good hit against KC and didn't break.I'm hoping to see him pass for 150 to 200 yds,just enough to keep the defense honest.This is a huge game for both teams and it should be like a playoff game .

    All we need tomorrow nite is a 1 TD by either the special teams or a pick 6 and 3 FG's and we are set. Our D I think can do the job. 16-7 or 16-10 I have faith and I'm starting the steelers D in my FF league! Go steelers! Its almost Dec and in Bens' famous words, "Its december football and if you don't know what that means find someone who does and ride with them"!!

    I just don't think the ravens D is that good. I think that we'll pound them with the run and we'll do quite well in this game if we can keep long drives going..against them.

    If it was Broken Leftwrist for a whole season, my trepidation levels would be sky high, but this is only a temporary thing, so I have fewer reservations.

    Lefty's not terrible, IMHO. A bit slower than Ben in every category, but that's why he's a backup and not a first choice starter.

    Leftwich is certainly good enough to get the win tonight, it basically comes down to the gameplan and the receivers catching the ball.

    I was surprised to hear he was a first round draft pick. I think with the right amount of practice with the first team Lefty could be a good QB. Never as good as Ben, never someone you want to place all your eggs in one basket. He will never make your team the reason why it's better or the x-factor guy. Won't gets you the tough wins nor could you bank on him to put the load on his shoulders to get you through the playoffs. With all the negative I said about him I still think he is decent or average.
    Look who is winning the Super Bowls. It's the Bens, Bradys, Breeze, Mannings , Arron Rodgers. There's a reason why you need a great QB these days to go all the way.
    I hope for the best with Lefty but, I'm not putting my faith in him that we will do as good with him as we would with Ben.
    Frankly, I just don't see this season being our season to do well.
    With Bens injury, Harrison being a non-factor and pretty much Woodley a non-factor along with no pass rush, no Troy, a secondary that can't get the int's...............It wouldn't bother me if we didn't win another game and get a better draft pick. I'm not wanting to lose but, I'll find the silver lining with a higher draft pick.

    I take back the litte bit of positive stuff I said about Lefty.......he's a china doll and as I said in the pst, Batch should be the number two guy. Long story short, they need to add youth to this position and not Dennis ( he will never improve ) Dixon.

    You echo my sentiments. Errr, maybe I echo yours. At any rate, I agree.

    Maybe the title of this thread should be changed to.


    How Brittle is Lefty ?

    How Bad is Lefty ?

    How Typical of Lefty.

    Seriously, the way Leftwich was in pain it agonized me to watch him. Why did the coaching staff allow him to continue ? The one pass at the end of the game was made to order for Lefty and yet, he skipped the throw down the field. That was all due to him being injured.
    Just heard on the radio Leftwich is probably out for next weeks game.

    Reading that shoulder and rib injuries are going to keep him out 2-3 weeks---

    Smart DB's are always going to have a field day with his elongated throwing motion. I can't explain why certain players are injury prone but he can barely get through a half without getting injured. They are going to have to bite the bullet and try to draft another guy I think. I'm getting a little tired of these washed up used to be starters.

    It wasn't the game that he got hurt in. It was the strain to his shoulder from holding the clipboard that did him in.
