Leftwich Laughs Off Overthrows

August 30th, 2009

leftwichA sense of humor is a good thing.

Joe laughs all the time, in between crying inside about the Bucs quarterback situation.

Quarterbacks, especially, have to be able to laugh off a tough game and remain confident. They’ve got to stay focused yet loose, and shrug bad things off quickly.

Byron Leftwich seems to be that kind of guy. After being named the opening day starter, Leftwich had an exclusive video interview with Buccaneers.com. Lefty jokingly said his miscues on Thursday are nothing to worry about.

“I’m seeing the field great. And I’m getting the ball to the right guy, even when I overthrow him.”

    I see where Jessica Simpson has put a curse on Tony Romo, who unchivalrously dumped her on her birthday. Here’s my idea, Joe. Put a bug in the Glazer Family’s ear to invite Jesse to sit in the owner’s box when we play Dallas. It couldn’t hurt. See if you can make it happen, Joe.

    I’d put her in the Captain Fear costume, and the first time the Cowboys get in the red zone, take off the Head of the costume so Romo can see who’s inside 🙂

    I wish I could laugh off his inaccurate throws but I doubt it. It should be painful to watch but maybe the football gods will shine on the Leftwich. They will of course need to give him they’re undivided attention.

    I like Mike’s idea, the look on Romo’s face would be priceless! Better yet, put her up on the Pirate Ship–as a member of the crew, I’ll personally vouch for her safety!!
