"I remember when I was the franchise quarterback," said Leftwich, a former Jacksonville first-round draft pick. "This ain't my first rodeo. It's good to be part of a team like this, a team that can win the big one. When you're on this team, you know you've got a chance to win every week."
"I'm a veteran, man," Leftwich said Wednesday. "I know how to get through a season. As a quarterback, it's hard to get through 16 straight. I know what to do. I know how to prepare myself."
