I came away from seeing Byron Leftwich for the first time in practice Monday morning impressed.
He's got a canon for an arm, far more so than Charlie Batch.
Now, I'm starting to think that maybe, just maybe, Batch's spot here isn't so firm.
Batch was having surgery Monday and it wouldn't surprise me if the team eventually releases him. Leftwich looks like a better player.
He threw a perfect strike to rookie Limas Sweed in the front corner of the end zone on his first play in red zone practice Monday morning. Sweed dropped the ball.
He just missed Dallas Baker on his next attempt on a short slant, but followed that up by threading the ball to tight end Jonathan Dekker at the goal line. It was a pass Batch couldn't make.
I like Charlie. He's a great guy.
But he doesn't have this kind of arm strength - not any more, not ever.
