What's with all this confidence in McCown? Has he really shown anything at all at this point? Bringing in a guy like Leftwich, who is out there looking for a chance to start, doesn't really seem like a strong endorsement for McCown.
One of the radio guys here put the talk about McCown best. He said anyone who says he will be great doesn't know, and anyone who says he will suck, doesn't know. The fact is he has played in a few games, but what he has played as a Buc he looked solid. He has the athletic ability to move around and make plays, he has a great arm, and seems to read defenses. It does not suprise me whatsoever that they brought Leftwich in. They said at the start of the offseason they wanted 4 QBs going into training camp. They also need a proven back up. I think Griese will be gone, McCown will start, Leftwich is back up, and Josh Johnson is the future and thrid Qb.
