There’s been plenty of talk about who is going to be under center for the Bucs in 2009, and if your thinking it’s going to be rookie Josh Freeman, your likely going to end up wrong. PewterReport.com is stating that it’s looking more and more like the QB battle will come down to Luke McCown and Byron Leftwich.

Here’s what they had to say about it:

Buccaneers offensive coordinator Jeff Jagodzinski said the team’s quarterback competition is primarily between QBs Luke McCown and Byron Leftwich. “Their (Leftwich and McCown) recall is really good. [Quarterbacks coach Greg Olson] is doing a fantastic job with both those quarterbacks and I expect a great competition. That is good. Having good competition brings out the best. They are both making plays out here and they both running the offense efficiently. I’m real pleased about that,” Jagodzinski said.
