McCown signs with Lions....This gives me an idea.

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; The only thing they'd be showing is that they won't be drafting a QB......There are a few other positions left in the high part of the round that would keep the other teams guessing....

.....AND it can be a great bargaining tool for us to use that pick to trade down if necessary to teams that are looking to move up for a QB....Who would make the sweeter deal? That works to our advantage.

brees has sold me, i believe he will start the first game. still the injury demands an IF. i think a veteran along the lines of frerotte or banks would be a wise addition. everyone knows they are there for insurance only. even if we did select leinart i think it would be the right move. i think brees contract was structured in such a way to still facilitate the selection of leinart if desired. still, you wouldn't want to throw him to the lions (or whoever it will be) in game one of the season. the design would be to be under brees' tutelage/mentoring. if brees doesn't live up to expectations, you have the annointed replacement ready to roll in a year or two. much like it was in SD in fact. if brees didn't get that injury SD would have been peddling rivers now. all that to say i don't think any veteran acquisition shows any hand. 3 qbs would be fine. again like SD in 2004- brees, rivers, and flutie. i ain't for picking now either.

as far as harrington, i think he will wanna go where there is some opportunity to compete for a starting job no matter what his pay is. and he is still young enough that someone will give him a shot- like the raiders or vikings.

bouman? i dunno how this guy stuck around so long. he must hold that clipboard fantasically. he'll be 34 this year. he threw more passes in those last 3 games than he did in his previous 8 years in the league! the minimum nfl salary is what $477k. let's say it averaged 250k for the 8 years before that. he got more, but if it was just that, then bouman has earned 2.5+ million for throwing 230 passes. over 1K per pass. ROFLMAO! this is killing me as i think of it. he has gotten be thinking it was nice while it lasted. i hope he invested well.

Kelley, did you read the article I posted earlier today about Brees' recovery. He sounds like the hard-working tough-minded QB that we've been missing for so long.

..before you crucify Boumann, remember that he hardly threw a pass in practice with anyone other than the scout team for 3 years until he got thrown into the debacle that were the 2005 Saints.

not crucifixtion but maybe a light flogging. he is what he is, a professional clipboard and kick holder. i'm just laughing that to earn maybe $3 million in the last 9 years for just being a practice guy never having to take real game hits ain't too bad, maybe better than kicking. the point of keeping a veteran backup for several years is that he will be game ready when and if the opportunity arises. sure the team was dreadful but he contributed his fair share to the disaster when he the team was given to him. plus, he has looked awful even in his preseason appearances. no good riddance to him like Smiley, more of a chuckle remembering him as another of Haslett's wrong turns.
