    Well I'm sure if any of you have visited the Jags board lately you would notice that they have been at each other's throats, because of Byron's poor play this preseason. I found this funny parody of "candle in the wind" a fan wrote about Byron, here it is:

    Contract In The Wind
    By Sir James Bond

    Goodbye Lord Byron
    Though I never booed you at all
    You had the grace of a porcupine
    With a windup like a clock
    They ridiculed your footwork
    And they questioned what went through your brain?
    They set you under center
    And they made you change your game

    And it seems to me you lived your life
    Like a contract in the wind
    Never knowing who to throw to
    When the blitz set in
    And I would have liked to have known you
    But I was just a kid
    Your contract ran out long before
    Your legend never did

    The local press was tough
    Said you were hurt more than you ever played
    Jacksonville craved a Superbowl
    And blame was the prize that you gained
    Even when you tried
    Oh the press still hounded you
    All the papers had to say
    Was that Garrard should start instead of you

    Goodbye Lord Byron
    From the young fan in the 22nd row
    Who sees you as something more than forgettable
    We could have had Terrell Suggs or Troy Polamalu


    :)

    Leftwich starts his wind up on 2nd down and gets his throw out by 3rd down...other than that, he doesn't tip off too many passes.

    Yeah, its like a flashback to 2005 or 2006 over there, except minus the whole Garrard thing. I think Leftwich's time is running short in Jacksonville, but hey Jag fan atleast be thankful your FO didn't drop a hefty 3 year extension in the lap of Leftwich during the offseason. :bat:
