“Languishing” Leftwich Could Return To Steelers

March 12th, 2010

Where have you read this before?

With horny Ben Roethlisberger seemingly on the verge of copulating himself out of the NFL, the salacious Super Bowl-winning Steelers quarterback, alleged to be involved in a(nother) sordid sexual scandal that could land him behind bars, forcing him to meld into an alternative lifestyle to feed his hungers, the Steelers may be in a quick need of a new quarterback.

Bucs backup quarterback Bryon Leftwich may be the answer, so writes Mike Florio, the creator, curator and overall guru of ProFootballTalk.com, typing a column for SportingNews.com.

Two years ago, Leftwich, then a backup for Big Ben, came off the bench to win a game at Washington as the Steelers marched to Tampa to win their sixth Super Bowl.

Florio believes the Steelers might need Leftwich again, if in fact Roethlisberger is unavailable due to his (alleged) felonious fornicating ways.

When Batch broke a collarbone during the 2008 preseason, Leftwich quickly was added to the team. He was solid in limited duty throughout the season, winning a Super Bowl ring and making himself attractive to the Buccaneers as a free agent.

Currently languishing on the Tampa depth chart, Leftwich likely could be had for a late-round pick. It might be wise for the Steelers to try to get the deal done now, before the Bucs acquire even more leverage via Big Ben doing a perp walk.

The way Bucs general manager Mark Dominik conned the Bears out of a second round pick for a guy who couldn’t start on the NFL’s worst defense, Joe can only dream what they might pry away from Pittsburgh in a time of need.

  2. Mike J Says:

    Perhaps this notion explains why the FO seemingly did a 180 re releasing Leftwich a week or two ago.

    Limas Sweed or Lima Beans, doesn’t matter, get rid of the man, just do it.

    Horrific player.

  6. AllMaddenMonkey Says:

    Do any teams want to pick him up now with the contract we signed him to? I sure hope so!

  7. Eric Says:

    I don’t suppose we could throw in the blocking icon and the King of Turds….

    Malloy appreciates Joes ability to cut right through all
    the unnecessary pretense and spin and tell us the ugly truth…

    Joe aims to please. 🙂

    Trade him straight up for Limas Sweed!!

  11. RustyRhino Says:

    Trade him or just cut him …. Mr Leadwich can i help you pack your bags???

  12. FuNkYxMuNkeY Says:

    Joe…do you think Pittsburg would trade for him straight up?? That would be sweet. Not saying Sweed is our answer, just an improvement and gets us one step closer to cutting Clayton!!

  13. FuNkYxMuNkeY Says:

    And why is there an ad for “Train Like Drew” on this website…I thought you were a Tampa fan JOE!!!! haha

  14. CharlieB Says:

    Though I know you’re kidding, some people won’t know. Google Ads places those advertisements. Joe has no control over them.

  15. Radio Mushmouth Says:

    I think we should give the steelers our 7th round pick just to take him off our hands…

    Joe wrote” Joe aims to please.”

    Mr. Lucky wonders if that same thing is what got Big Ben in trouble?

    If the Bucs can unload Leftwich and get anything for him, what are they waiting for? I am sure there must be a good player on their roster that may be unhappy or want a change of scenery. Well we can all hope!!!!!
