I like the pick up. AMac is still a bit out, but Bouman was absolutely horrible. I was a big believer that he would be a good switch for us. Man was I wrong on that.

I think a veteran backup like Martin is a perfect fit. Low cost, can walk right in and start if oyu need him. Holds a clipboard in style too. He may not have been my first choice but was on the list. I can't see it being much "competition" with Blowman. LOL

I don't think a player like this has any effect whatsoever if you did or did not want to draft Leinart or the likes. SD had that set up- a ProBowl QB, Rivers on the bench for development, and Flutie if you needed someone to lead you for a while in a pinch.

Don't disagree Martin is an upgrade over BOW_WOW_MAN (if it looks like a dog, acts like a dog, it must be a DOG) but conventional wisdom would have been to cut BOW_WOW_MAN NOW, and sign Martin after the draft. It would have sent a subtle but strong message to the Jets, Raiders, and Titans that their hope for one of the three QB's could be in jeopardy. Then let the trade offers roll in.

When will the FO get it, i.e. conventional wisdom?

What's so nice about Martin?? He's old and has never done anything very impressive. So he brought his team back against the god awful saints last year.

He's an experianced verteran who comes from Mike Martz offense, so he brings some offensive knowledge to the saints. I think its a very good pickup for us.

Exactly. We all know he is not going to be our savior but he has shown that he can perform when necessary.
