Leftwich is 0-6 in his last six games as a starter, his last victory coming on Oct. 8, 2006. Hopefully Haley will have him ready and play to his strengths... That long wind up throwing motion of his has always concerned me... It's not ideal for getting rid of the ball quickly in a short passing game. The Rats D will be looking to get to him very quickly. Our OL really needs to step up BIG TIME and give him some time. This will be one of the keys to this game. Lefty can still wing the ball if he has the time. I hope he has some great practices this week and shakes off any rust! The Rats will probably load up the box and see if Byron can beat them. If the Steelers can get the run game going again and the D shows up, I like our chances. God I despise that smug *ss Harbaugh! Hopefully we can knock the smug off his face!

So does anyone think Lefty makes it out of this game healthy?

This is probably explained elsewhere, but what is wrong with Batch? I want him to start.

not to hijack - but I still fly professionally.

to this day, whether it's in the simulator or an actual malfunction I stay pretty consistent.

'I have the aircraft'
'set safe altitude in the altitude select'
'stand by the checklist'
'AND GET ME REX KRAMER!'

any pilot who goes 'huh?' is usually taken off my line.........

If you can't quote 'airplane' you're not part of my world.

I wouldn't let the stat that he's 0-6 in his last 6 starts worry me too much. He went 0-3 for a horrible 3-13 Tampa team in 2009. He went 0-2 for an awful 4-12 Falcons team in 2007. And he lost his last start for a .500 Jaguars team in 2006. Before those last 6 losses, he was 24-19 in his previous starts in Jacksonville. So he can't win with horrible talent around him. No surprise. But the talent on this team more resembles the talent from the 2004 & 2005 Jimmy Smith/Fred Taylor Jags (and he was 16-9 as a starter during those 2 seasons with 30 TD's and 15 INT's. All he has to do for us is manage the game and distribute the ball...don't try to be a hero.

Are you saying he has only been with us since '10?
He feels like he's been here the better part of a decade!

I was under the weather a few weeks back and just rewatched Airplane and Forrest Gump. I thought Airplane was one of the funniest movies ever when I was a kid.

I can barely remember him playing in Jax or leaving for a few years. I feel like he's been here Ben's whole career.

Time for the TEAM to rally around Leftwich.

With how long it takes Lefty to wind up I see a lot of deep balls to Wallace. If we hit one or two of those we win. If we don't we go down in flames. Lefty isn't the type who can lead us on 12 play drives like Ben can.

You nailed it! Couldn't agree more! It's time the whole team steps up and clicks in all phases. If they do the Rats are beatable. I'm a little concerned about the long vertical plays that Flacco is capable of. Can't allow any cheap big plays... make them earn every inch!
