    The more I've thought about it the last few days, the better I feel about Leftwich. He's obviously not Ben, but with Haley as the coordinator, and the O line playing well for the most part, he should be ok. With some practice reps, and hopefully not the horrible weather like last week, I believe Byron can get the job done. Solid run game and short passes will be key.

    Real Deal Steel, making ridiculous statements is one thing... But trying to back up those ridiculous statements with complete ignorance ("There was a reason a couple of years ago that Batch was chosen over Lefty.") is just making you sound foolish big guy.

    Lefty will be fine, I think he may surprise us. The O-line has played a lot better this year, and with them I rest my hopes.

    I agree Lefty will be fine. I think Haley is the key here as well, as some have already stated. The game plan will change to suit Lefty I think, Haley is no dummy. He knows BL's feet are sun dial worthy. Expect a big emphasis on the run game and ole reliable Heath Miller. You guys make it sound like Brian St Pierre is starting. Lets have some faith and kick the raven's ***.

    Do we trust Leftwich?

    I agree. Plus it was nasty weather. I love football weather - especially snow and don't usually mind rain. It was cold and wind was blowing the rain in your face though and very unpleasant. In front of the country on Monday night - I give him tremendous credit for his performance.

Lefty wasn't good enough two years ago to be the backup starter in case of emergency.

    And you are completely sounding the retreat bugle again after being called out on a total lack of knowledge. You first stated that Lefty was the "worse (sic) backup in the league" but now have him merely in the same category as those on the list provided by tburg68. Comparing Lefty negatively to Kellen Clemons and the other dregs on that list is a joke.

    Please tell us what backup QBs in this league you would rather have starting for us in the playoffs come January if Ben could not go for some reason.

    I'm not even saying I'm in love with Leftwich, but clearly there are teams in a worse predicament. Batch isn't better than Leftwich. Wasn't Real Deal the one saying that Dwyer is better because the team is going to keep him and let Mendy go? The team has chosen Leftwich over Batch, doesn't that make him better??

    I think Byron is gonna surprise people and have a good game. Lots of passes in the flat to Rashard, plus a couple strikes downfield.

    Well, you got your answer in last nite's game against the Ravens huh?? Lefty is horrible. And I told you he was BEFORE the game took place. He is not better then Batch. He's a statue and it takes too long for Lefty to get the ball out of his hands. Batch is clearly better.
