    JAGUARS NOTEBOOK: Leftwich gets lecture from mom

    By BART HUBBUCH, The Times-Union

    One day after being caught twice on national TV making obscene gestures, Byron Leftwich got the phone call he dreaded Monday morning.

    No, not from the NFL. The caller on the other line was even more intimidating: his mother, Brenda.

    "I was on the phone with her for an hour trying to explain it," Leftwich said, shaking his head. "I just told her I messed up. I apologize to everybody that saw it. It felt like it was the right thing to do at the time."

    Leftwich was caught making the gestures at Indianapolis defensive line coach John Teerlinck during the third quarter of a 10-3 loss at the RCA Dome.

    An NFL spokesman said Monday night that the league was aware of the incident and that Leftwich could be fined, but the league does not announce fines until Wednesday or Thursday.

    Leftwich repeated his stance Sunday that he was provoked into making the gestures by an offensive comment from Teerlinck, who had rushed onto the field as Leftwich was arguing a call with the officials near the Colts‚ sideline.

    The actions were uncharacteristic of the mild-mannered Leftwich, who said Teerlinck's comment was so upsetting that he hopes the Indianapolis assistant also is fined if the league hands out penalties.

    Leftwich also said he hopes any fine from the league is donated to Hurricane Katrina relief.

    "I hate that I did it, because I got caught on TV," Leftwich said. "But in the heat of battle, sometimes you do things. Maybe a little child saw that, and that's the only bad part for me. But you're just not thinking about things like that in the heat of the battle."

    That's funny! It's not as bad as hearing it on the air, which they have let slip before.

    Another great sig by PPE!
