Apparently, Leftwich is due to be traded or cut as Garrard is the starter. First of all, this is a surprise as I was expecting Leftwich to have a bounce back year. Second, I immediately thought that he would be the perfect stopgap starter for the Browns. If he's due to be released, could we trade Anderson or Frye for Leftwich straight up and get a much more proven starter for the next year or two? Or, better yet, wait til he's released, trade Anderson and/or Frye for draft picks and sign him to a cheap prove it one year deal.
It's worth mentioning though that this is exactly the sort of thing that Phil Savage NEVER does because he puts so much stock in his own ability to scout talent. But my opinion is that with a proven starting quarterback, our team becomes a playoff contender.
