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 change mine every year. Probably could get by longer then that, but I like to do it every year.

      Joe The DNR guy has a point.  There is a distinction between taxing the general population, and charging a fee (call it a tax if you want to) that only hits the folks that use the service.       So trout stamp money is used to provide trout fishing opportunities.   The trout stamp or fishing license isn't a tax since you choose to pay it in order to engage in the activity that the money provides.       They have a certain amount of money to spend to provide or enhance trout fishing opportunities.   Planting lake trout in a lake that already gets stream trout might not be a good use of that money.

      How often do you change out braided lines on your ice reels? Finally changed my out, not sure how long it has been on the reel or if needed to change it.
