    Ravens To Pursue Leftwich?



    This apparently was mentioned on a pregame show according to a friend of mine. (Maybe someone can elablorate which show or if they heard the same). Apparently, it was mentioned to look for the Ravens to trade for Leftwich in the offseason to QB behind McNair.

    Taking for granted that this is a possibility, would you make this trade?

    I would for these reasons:

    1. Boller's future is not here. There is just no way Boller could ever start for the Ravens in the future. Boller future is as someone else's starter.

    2. Leftwich needs that same change of scenery.

    3. Leftwich could learn much playing behind McNair. Look at how Harrington took a backup job and is now starting. I think Leftwich would learn much playng behind McNair and being groomed to start for us.

    Thoughts? (Had more reasons, but the misses is calling me).
    It's a new season! It's a new day!

    Good god no. We would pay way too high a price for a QB who honestly hasn't shown to be all that good. Let's keep Boller

    lol... He's got a QB rating at or under 70. Is that the big hope with Leftwich?

    No thanks. I'd rather draft another QB or look in free agency somewhere.

    Leftwich is a statue, and he can't stay healthy. Pass.

    No way.

    I say draft Troy Smith out of OSU.

    I agree on Smith. I think he is the PERFECT candidate to sit behind McNair and learn.

    On NFL Network, during the draft segment last Saturday, they talked about Troy Smith as a potential 3rd rounder. I am not well versed on college ball, but based on that info, wouldn't taking Troy Smith with the 1st pick be a stretch?

    As for Leftwich, I am still waiting to talk to my friend to hear what was specifically said. I do agree that a young drafted QB would be a better option to groom behind McNair, but you guys would not at least be curious?

    Who said take him #1? I'd definitely spend a 2 or 3 on Smith.

    We need CB first round, or OT bar none.

    He is going to win the heisman, I bet his draft stock rises to a mid 1st rounder ala Jason Cambell.

    but he is better then jason cambell

    Leftwich = Water Buffalo II....We have no more leaps of faith left. I am comfortable w/ Boller as #2

    I'd be surprised if Troy Smith makes it past pick 15. Put 3 inches on him and he is the de facto #1.

    As far as Leftwich, I wouldn't be upset if we picked him up as a FA (right player right price), but it would probably be better if we got someone closer to McNair's skillset.
