Mcown or Ramsey?

McCown, Ramsey work out for Saints

Associated Press

METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints have held workouts for veteran quarterbacks Josh McCown and Patrick Ramsey.

Team spokesman Greg Bensel says the pair visited Saints headquarters Thursday.

The Saints are looking for potential backups to Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees. Mark Brunell, who'll turn 40 in September, backed up Brees the past two seasons, but is a free agent.

Ramsey and McCown both began their NFL careers in 2002.

Ramsey is a Ruston, La., native who played for Tulane. He started 11 games for the Redskins in 2003, but has played in only four games since 2006 in stints with Denver, Tennessee and Detroit.

McCown started 13 games for Arizona in 2004. He spent the past two seasons as a backup in Carolina.

I live in the same town Ramsey played his high school football and it still amazes me to this day that he was a first round draft pick.

D_it_up would you say he's a bust or just a back-up. He played for Tulane.

McCown has more recent experience. But what the heck. Sign Ramsey. I'm not excited about either really.

Is this McCown that played for the Tampa Bay Bucs. If so we know he has won a few games.

Well, he's definitely a bust from the position he was drafted from, being a first-rounder and all. He has proven that he is no more than a back-up in this league. I'm with exile on this one. Not excited about either one, but even as much as I like to support local players whenever they go pro, I would want McCown over Ramsey. But I would even rather have the other McCown (Luke) than I would Josh.

Different McCown. That was Luke. Luke went to college at Louisiana Tech, also in the city I live in. As I stated in my previous post, I would even prefer him over Josh or Patrick.
