Detroit is fine (in comparison to Leftwich) with Kitna. Possible places could be:

Miami, Trent Green is older than Favre, yet nobody been sniffing his jock the last three years to see if the milk has gone bad.

Atlanta, I don't need to elaborate there.

Kansas City, Huard is old and a career back-up, Croyle is inexperienced and I don't think has enough talent

Funny smile.gif.

If Atlanta passes on leftwich, might as well flush their season down the tube. I read where there was expected to be a bidding war for Holcomb, but he seemed to come to us pretty easily.

Well, I don't think he is definately no super bowl savior, but I'd like chicago's chances better with him than grossman.

He's got to be better than Harrington.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons worked out former Jacksonville starter Byron Leftwich on Tuesday, the former first-round draft pick's agent confirmed.

Tom Condon said he planned to meet with Falcons general manager Rich McKay later Tuesday. It was not known if a deal could be reached as early as Tuesday.

The Falcons are looking for immediate help at quarterback. Joey Harrington, who took over as the starter when Michael Vick was suspended by the NFL, has lost his first two starts with Atlanta and the offense is averaging only 10 points.

Vick was suspended indefinitely last month following his guilty plea on a dogfighting charge. He is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 10.

Leftwich was cut by Jacksonville in a surprise preseason move as the Jaguars chose David Garrard as their starter. Ankle and knee problems have prevented Leftwich, 27, from completing a full season. He missed 15 games the past two years.

Atlanta just signed him up. 2 year, 7 million dollar deal. Seems like a lot of money but his career stats aren't too terrible. He's been a hurt a lot, that's for sure, but I guess we'll see if he can turns things around in ATL. That's a franchise that needs to rally around something.

Atlanta may turn into a respectable team after all. Thier Defense isn't that bad at all. The kept the Vikes out of the red zone week 1 (yeah, not to tough) and held Jacksonville to 13 points in week 2. Since they upgraded the QB from complete DONKEY to slightly above mediocre they may win some games.

Atlanta may win some games, but Leftwhich is useless in terms of fantasy football in Atlanta.. I wouldnt start him unless i was in very deep leagues.

I wonder if Jake Plummer would take a few Million to try and save the Vikings season?

I was hearing on KFAN last night, that even if he wanted to come here, he was property of Tampa as far as football goes. A trade would need to be worked out unless they would cut him.

      I am planning on kayaking and fishing the Cannon River this season--between Cannon Falls and Hwy 61. I just want to know if the current is generally swift or lazy, i.e., can I paddle BACK to my entrance spot or do you  need to drift downstream and do the two vehicle thing. I understand it may depend on how low or high the river is at any given time, but in general, when things are 'normal', can you paddle back with little difficulty?

      I'll keep it short and simple. The causes of boom and bust on Mille Lacs.    1. Improperly managed slot limits. Too many large fish are allowed in the lake.  2. Netting during spawn. Poor spawning success.    The recent years of high catch rates rates indicate a good 2013 year class but most importantly it is a red flashing light for anyone paying attention. High catch rates are a result of good population AND low or decreasing forage. I put AND in caps because fish won't bite like they have  when they're not hungry.    Cut down that year class class before it's too late. I give it 2 more summers before another crash is inevitable.    Round and round we go, where it stops, nobody knows.

      After using most of the brands you've mentioned, I absolutely love Lunkerhunt frogs...real lifelike, and don't seem to fill up with water as much as the others. They also hold up really well--caught some pike and bowfin without them getting destroyed. I have been using the "Croaker" color exclusively, but definitely picking up some other patterns. They also make a popper frog which is great if you want to make a little more noise.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.
