Door Still Open To Trade Leftwich To Steelers

April 18th, 2010

Since horny sleazebag/alleged serial molester Ben Roethlisberger first got popped for being way too handsy with women, including walking around with his member hanging out, Joe has hoped/prayed the Steelers may want Bucs backup quarterback Byron Leftwich for wide receiver Limas Sweed.

Remember that Leftwich two years ago came off the Steelers’ bench and led the soon-to-be Super Bowl champions to a win over the Redskins at FedEx Field in Washington. It was a critical victory with while Roethlisberger was injured.

In light of his recent women problems, including borderline entrapment in bathrooms, horny molester Roethlisberger’s future is, at best, uncertain. Joe had hoped the Bucs would be able to land fleet-footed Sweed since he is in Steelers coach Mike Tomlin’s doghouse, and the Bucs’ wide receiver corps is seemingly worse than Georgia Tech’s.

When the Bucs decided to pass on sending a measly fifth round pick to Pittsburgh for stud wide receiver Santonio Holmes, Joe figured the Bucs weren’t going to even attempt to upgrade the wide receiver position outside of the draft.

Vacation Man, of, believes the Bucs may still be able to swing a Leftwich-to-Pittsburgh deal.

Any more word about a possible trading of Leftwich to the Steelers?

Vacation Man
Haven’t heard anything lately, but I think you could see something right before, during or right after the draft.

Please, please, please let it be Sweed. Holmes would have been a much better deal but Sweed is better than nothing.

    So Joe are you saying Leftwich is nothing?

  2. CharlieB Says:

    Doesn’t Sweed have a reputation for dropping passes? Why do we need four receivers (Clayton, Bradley, Brown, Sweed) with a reputation for not being able to hold onto the ball?

    I would trade Left-Twitch for a Six-pack of cheap beer or a 5-7th round pick. Hell, I would give the Steelers a six-pack to haul that garbage out of here.

    I really liked Sweed coming out of college and lamented that we didn’t take him in the 2nd round.

    This might explain why I’m not an NFL scout…

    He does but unlike any of the current Bucs receivers, Sweed is lightning fast and can stretch the field. Even if he doesn’t have the best of hands, defenses will have to play him honest, which would help keep traffic away from Stroughter.

    That’s how miserable the Bucs receiving corps is. A guy like Sweed would be an upgrade.

  6. Eric Says:

    At this point Betty White would be an upgrade.

    They wont trade us Sweed for Leftwich …Sweed has been a disappointment but he still has upside , and they may need him now that Santonio is gone.

    If they did trade for him , all we’d see in return is a 6th rounder in next years draft.

    Dream on Joe.

    This would be a first.. Historically, the Bucs usually cut a player and get nothing in return.

    I wonder if we sweetened the pot and offered Leftwich & Clayton for sweed they’d be dumb enough to trade? I’d think Sweed was great just because he got rid of Sluggo & clayhands!
