Quarterback Situation
With Brooks currently unhappy with his contractual situation and the potential of holding out , it would be great to see Jake get some first string preseason start time . I know Brooks has appeared to be rusty at times so far but if the worse case scenario did happen , it would be nice to know the back up would not be totally out of sync .

Do the Saints keep J.T. O ' Sullivan or Jeff Lewis as 3rd string ???

Or do the Saints cut their loses at this point and go for a cut down player ??? Any good looking prospects ??

Quarterback Situation
As far as 3rd string goes I say cut both of those guys. I\'d rather bring in some promising no-name or bring in an old-timer who may not ever have to play anyway (Billy Joe anyone?) At least we know a veteran could keep the offense going. O\'Sullivan is way too raw and Jeff Lewis has always been horrible. He has no pocket presence whatsoever. Here are his career stats:

Played in 12 games, started in none of them
28/54 for 210 yards (51.9%)
TD: 0 INT: 2
QB Rating: 46.1

Quarterback Situation
Denver seems to have a couple extra Qb\'s , someone wil have to be cut .

The question in my mind is would it be better to trade now , or scout the waiver wire and take a chance after the final cut down . Because the 2 # 3\'s we currently have are not getting it done in my mind either .

Quarterback Situation
I say we wait on the waiver wire. I\'ll go out on a limb here and say that some team will cut someone that is better than either one of our 3rd stringers ;-)

There\'s no danger in waiting. The 3rd stringer will have plenty of time to learn the offense before a situation would come up where he would have to play.

I guess not everyone could be as lucky as Tampa Bay. Must be nice to have 3 QBs and know that any one of them can run your offense effectively.

Quarterback Situation
What I hate about the waiver wire is that another team can get them before the Saints do . Giving a sixth or seventh could prove well worth it . Never know where a free agent will choose to go .

Jeff Lewis is gone! What a shame. Let\'s see who is available in the next 2 weeks. Maybe Billy Kilmer will come back.

Quarterback Situation
When a vet is as bad as a rookie , no brainer there .

Billy Kilmer , cool . why not Rypien is going for some kind of age record .

Still say they need to comb the wire for a 3rd qb and corner depth .
