First of all, Frerotte at one point was the starter and a good one for the Redskins(until he realized that he did not know how to celebrate after a touchdown...lol) Had his little journeyman episode and now he wins 6 in a row here in Miami. First year at 9-7? Thats not bad. I watched some of the Dolphin games and the guy looked poised. Not too clumsy...made many smart throws. I'm not saying he is the be all end all answer for the Saints but....the guy can handle things pretty well. I agree with the Scaub deal but I guess we can't get him. As far as Volek...I never saw him but his numbers look real good according to yasson's post. Carreer backups are not always a bad thing....look at Chris Chandler before he came to Atlanta....we all know where he to those filthy chickens.

I could be wrong, but I've just never had a good feeling about Frerotte. I think he's a guy who can win a few games when the situation is right, but not necessarily carry the team. But, he might be a good one year fill in with a rookie behind him.

You are wrong...DEAD WRONG!!!!!!!!!!! LOL...just kidding. Seriously though, I dunno yasoon....my gut instincts tell me that we can survive with a decent FA pickup as long as we beef up our defense. I believe it all starts with defense. Hell look at the bears....zero offense and yet they make the playoffs. We have a lot of offense pieces in place. A decent and smart arm...maybe a lineman and/or a reciever and we are set. BEEF UP THE D!!!!

Schaub, GIVE UP THE # 2 he is starter and trade down in the draft asap
Garrard - hmm he did well but......... way to many ????????
Frerotte, Kitna, Volek - Draft a QB in the next 2 years. We will have a pick in the top 5 with them at the helm

Interesting gambles. Just past the 3 year learning curve for QB's.
Harrington - never had a good line or running game. So the jury is out on him still
Pennington - always was open to the blind side and has burried that shoulder so many times. but has showed flashes

Collins - I hate to say this but he does know Payton,s sytsem. Yet he does know the N.O. nightlife too

If I had to list them in order I'd take Harrington, Schaub,or Volek. I think Harrington has gotten a bad rap. He played for Detroit for gods sake. But seriously I think he has what it takes if given a ticket out of Detroit. He has the arm strength and the vision. It seems like his recievers are always dropping catchable balls. Hold on this all sounds familiar.

Schaub should be the starter in Atlanta. Nuff said. but unlikly to be moving.


Volek - maybe out of Tenn. But I think that will depend on who is taken at the number one. Volek deserves a chance to start some where.

Frerotte did not have a bad year and he played well enough to maintain the starters role.

I think Gerrard is alot like what we currently have with less fumbles and a little less accurate.

Beyond that I don't think there is anyone else worth bringing in for the money. Pennington has seen his one good year, and he will not see another. He could barley throw before the first sergery and could not make the throws after.

Hey BJSim...thanks for the link. I did not realize the amount of good names that are becoming FA's. By looking at this list I have come to the realization that we must let Brooks go. You can argue all day about why but the truth is there is a multitude of good free agents out there and the 6 million he is gonna cost us just became a lot more valuable than I had originally thought. I actually wrote a list of names from each team's FA list and a few of these pickups would have a great impact on our team on both sides of the ball. You guys should look at the link he posted and see for yourself.

BINGO!!

What's the question?

Quick quiz: Who is the last Top-3 QB pick to lead their team to a winning record as a starter in their rookie season?

Big Ben was a #11 pick. Look elsewhere.

I'm tellin you guys....we need a decent FA QB. I would rather trade down.,....load up on draft picks loaded with speed and pick up some FA's. We will be better off that way than coughing up millions to a QB we are not even sure will do well.
