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.

      Spent a couple hours on Elysian this afternoon.  Drove around some shallow areas on the south east end of the lake with the trolling motor and only saw carp. Water is still unusually clear for this lake, at any time of the year, and 79 degrees near shore. May be a great opportunity for a bow fisherman, even in the daylight. Tried soaking minnows in a hole on the north end with no luck.

      My choice would be Namakan, but honestly that’s mostly based on emotion. It’s where my dad and I fished the most while up there. I also think it’s prettier than Kab.  I’ve never been on Sand Point or Crane. Just my two cents. I’ll be up there one week from today. Staying on the Ash River if anyone would care to enjoy a cold one first round is on my buddy. 😁

      Hit the water at 5 and back to shore at 7. 21 smallies smacked the stick bait.   Biggest went 18.  Had one that did a great jump and landed in the yak by my foot. LOL

      The Great Lakes Compact Council and the Great Lakes Regional Body are seeking public feedback on draft updates to the procedures for reviewing requests to divert water from the Great Lakes Basin. The compact is federal law that governs the use of water in the Great Lakes watershed. The compact council and regional body are accepting comments through June 21, at 4:30 p.m.  Under the compact, diversions of water out of the Great Lakes-St. Lawrence River Basin are generally prohibited. However, the compact identifies limited circumstances under which diversion may be allowed. In some instances, before a diversion proposal can be approved, it must undergo review by the regional body and may require approval by the compact council. The draft updates are strictly procedural and would not modify the compact’s basic terms. The compact council is composed of the governors of the eight states that border the Great Lakes. The regional body includes the eight governors on the council plus the premiers of Ontario and Quebec. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is Gov. Mark Dayton’s delegate to both groups and provides data and water management expertise to assist implementing the compact. The effort to refine the procedures under the compact follows the states’ and provinces’ first experience reviewing a diversion request under the agreement. Reflecting on that experience and feedback from stakeholder groups, the states and provinces concluded that some aspects of the procedures should be clarified or refined. Following discussions with key stakeholders and tribal interests, the states and provinces developed the draft updates that were released for public review May 22. The updates include these changes: Expands opportunities for the public to participate at hearings and public meetings. Acknowledges the special status of First Nations and federally recognized Tribes through separate meetings with them and granting standing to contest compact council decisions. Identifies circumstances under which an additional public comment period would be offered between issuance of the regional body’s declaration of finding and the compact council’s final decision. Essentially, if the compact council views the regional body’s modifications to the applicant’s diversion proposal as substantial, the council would take public comment prior to making its final decision. The existing public comment opportunity prior to the regional body’s deliberations would remain. After considering public input received by June 21, the regional body will revise the draft procedural updates this summer. The compact council will then consider the updates and decide whether some or all of them should be adopted through rulemaking. The draft updates are available at www.glslcompactcouncil.org/PUT-DraftUpdates.aspx. This website includes instructions for sharing feedback. The public input process includes an in-person opportunity to share feedback in Duluth on June 21 at Fitger’s Inn at 10:30 a.m. Documents are also available on the regional body website. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
