    Leftwich is sure to get some looks by other teams:

    Chicago, Detroit, Minnesota, maaaaaybe Baltimore (time to stop the Boller experiment ... if I were a Ravens fan, I'd rather have Leftwich).

    If they were questioning Leftwich's durability, how is Garrard, who has Crohn's Disease and must monitor it carefully, going to hold up?

    Boller? I thought Steve McNair took most of the snaps last season. And Detroit is happy with Kitna, from what I've heard.

    Boller? I think you missed the 2006 season ;)

    Atlanta?

    They definitely need a good quarterback with Michael Vick about ready to become someone's bitch.

    Tampa Bay?

    They only have seven or eight mediocre quarterbacks.

    I know Boller is the backup, folks. I'm talking about Baltimore's No. 2 QB. Steve McNair will start and will go until his body breaks down to a point of no return. And everyone knows, McNair included, that he's not a long-term solution.

    Kansas City would make a lot of sense, too, but would Herm actually want a QB that can make deep throws and open up the offense? Personnel-wise, the move would be good. In terms of Herm, highly doubtful.

    I wanted to say Tampa, but Chucky loves Garcia ... at least that's what he's selling.

    But when your backups are Dan Orlovsky and JT O'Sullivan (yea yea I know he was NFL Europa Offensive MVP last year) AND an offensive line that is as porous as swiss cheese, you better always have an eye on someone as a replacement.

    David Garrard? Seriously? Quarterbacking a possible playoff team?

    Wow. Guess that's one fewer AFC team to have to worry about.

    I'm not defending the choice - upthread, I said about as much - but given a potential 1-2 rushing punch (if Fred Taylor stays healthy) and a defense that, when it feels like it, is among the best and might be the most physical unit in the league, I think Jax can be a playoff contender. No, the Jags won't beat Indy or New England, but still a lot of good parts in Jacksonville that can overcome this personnel gaffe.

    Garrard can be a good caretaker - Jax's receivers still aren't exactly setting the world afire. But if Jax's offense won't be nearly as potent with Garrard as it could have been with Leftwich.

    Within moments of the news of Leftwich's imminent availability, one of the sports talkers around here was on the phone to their Lions "insider," and asked if the team might have any interest.

    The response was virtually blurted out. "NO!! No no no no no no no no no no no!! Their QB situation is set. They wouldn't bring in somebody like that at the last minute, to unnecessarily confuse the situation."

    Well hell no, of course not, not with Jon "Unitas" Kitna, the legendary fiery leader, with all his "intangibles," at the controls, why would you do a silly thing like that??
