    Let's see if Peek, Babin, Greenwood, TJ, etc... can challenge those expectations.

    I can't wait to find out...but things look pretty darn good from here.
    I have been following all the reports since mini-camp and our passing game is going to be 100x better than last season, thank god! :whew

    Is one of the expections for Leftwich to get back to the size of a QB?

    Hey don't go ragging on a QB because he's big. What about Culpepper he's 260, or how about Mcnabb who's 240, heck Carr weighs only 25 pounds less. Lay off the big guy.

    Id say its pretty easy to complete 27 of 32 passes with no defensive pressure.

    Your right it's those slow guys like Drew "afterburner" Bledsoe we should be ragging on or maybe the colour blind ones like Vinny "I thought he was on my team" Testaverde. Leave Lord Byron alone he's not that big and I'll beat he'll beat those Cowgirl QB's in the 40 going backwards.

    Right and you should be able to run your offense exclusively from the shotgun formation too.

    It's interesting how they model their offense around the weaknesses of their QB and we model ours of the weaknesses of our O-line.

    It's true, QB's are going up in size. I remember a couple of years ago reading that Culpepper is actually bigger than every single lineman who played on the Miami Dolphins perfect season team back in the 70's.

    The only reason Byron gets the flak for it is those chubby cheeks of his. Out of all those guys who you quoted Byron is the only one who "looks" fat. It's a combination of pads, chubby cheeks, and overall body type that draws the attention.

    Not necessarily fair I admit but, well there it is.

    And that is exactly why our OC was fired...I feel confident Carl Smith will show the rest of the league how Musgrave should have done his job. :excited:

    Im so glad that Leftwich posed for this picture. Every time someone brings up the old "Hes only 260 lbs.. alot of QBs way just as much or close"..

    The difference is.. Leftwich is sporting a spare tire and some tig o bitties.

    I mentioned McNabb, Carr, and Culpepper being big guys too and you replied saying "Your right it's those slow guys like.."
    I never mentioned Bledsoe at all.

    Expactations for Leftwich?

    I expect him to laying on his fat arse looking up at Babin , Peek and every other teams pass rushers all year long. Oh well at least he has ample padding.
