Byron Leftwich should be the starter
I think Coach Morris made the right call in making Leftwich the starting quarterback on opening day. Leftwich has the experience and arm strength you need. His decision making was much better than Luke McCown's. Watching the game on thursday, Leftwich was willing to stay in the pocket and make the throw. McCown was ready to scramble at a moment's notice.
I also think we should not trade McCown, Leftwich has never made it through a 16 game schedule. And I don't believe the 21 year old rookie Josh Freeman should even step onto the field this year.
Leftwich has made less than 50% of his passes this pre-season. That should improve with injured starters Antonio Bryant and Michael Clayton back in the starting lineup. Also Leftwich has a career 58.6 completion percentage.
Leftwich is a better fit in the Bucs run first, play action offensive philosophy. The Bucs aren't going to be throwing the ball 40 plus times a game this season. The Bucs are going to be grind it out, time of possesion kind of offense. You will see some big plays from Leftwich this season, with the addition of tight end Kellen Winslow and wideouts Bryant and Clayton, There will be many.
