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

In a move that likely augurs the imminent departure of starting quarterback Joey Harrington after four disappointing seasons, ESPN.com has learned that the Detroit Lions on Thursday signed unrestricted free agent Josh McCown, who had played his entire career with the Arizona Cardinals.

You've all heard the blackandgold.net cliche' "if we can get him for cheap", but you're about to hear it again. I wouldn't mind seeing the Saints go after Harrington, but ONLY if he's cut and he would take a significant salary cut from what he was making with the Lions. If the Saints do not draft a QB in the draft, and Brees is definitely going to be our franchise QB, then Harrington would be a nice addition. He's got starting NFL experience and Peyton may be able to get his head straight after that horrific start to his career in Detroit. Comments? Opinions? ******* or Gripes? What do y'all think?

People shouldn't be afraid of their government. Governments should be afraid of their people.

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

Signing Harrington would signify to the entire league we're NOT drafting Leinart & the pick is open. It may or may not be helpful. Personally I think the team will keep Bouman & chalk up his play to the misserable season the team already was having.

Gag, Bouman sucks! The Saints would have a better chance with my left N*t as the backup QB. CUT HIM SOON! Harrington would be a good addition, though it definitaly says we won't draft a qb, unless payton and company aren't going to give AMAC a chance.

Great point BJSim. That would show everybody in the league our hand.

However....

Bouman is asbolutely awful. He just hands down should not be a quarterback in the NFL. He's never done anything, at least not with this team that makes me think he should be making millions of dollars.

Duece, I agree with everyone else's assessment of Bouman, but there will be QB's available in the second round of FA after the draft. Hold on to Bouman until atleast then.

Sim, I completely agree with you there. I say we stay pat on the backup QB situation for now. Hold our hand close to our chest because there are way too many backup quality QBs available for hte entire offseason. Guys like Collins, maybe Ramsey, and others.

Deuce, and possibly even Harrington. I don't think he'll get snapped up. Think of all the QBs on the open market right now:

Collins, Brooks, Feurotte, Ramsey, Harrington, Greise, Fiedler, Wright, Banks, Blake, Detmer...

The list JUST keeps getting longer. There is NO NEED to rush into signing a backup QB or cutting Bouman.

That's true about the available QB situation, but I would have cut Bouman the second after I cut Brooks...

D_it, but then you show your hand, that we're going to be looking for a new #2 QB. You don't cut your #2 guy until you've gotten a new #2. Or hell, after the first round of roster cuts in August if you've got the cap room to hold him.
