Opening Statement
I think one (of) the things that was exciting for us today at practice was Curtis Johnson brought his staff over from Tulane and its really the first time Ive had the chance to visit with Curtis since he took the job. It was great seeing him and fun to hear some of his critiques of the practice. The legendary executive of the Dallas Cowboys, Gil Brandt was here looking at practice so I received some feedback from him. Were going to receive some good input from some knowledgeable people about critiquing our practices here. It was kind of exciting.

Elbert Mack was someone the team visited with early on in the offseason. What do you like about him after having him at practice for a day?
He passed the eyeball test out here. Were going to go look at film at 12:50 and get a further evaluation. I think Ill be to talk a little bit better maybe after two or three practices on him. (He has) good movement skills and a pretty good feel for the system.

How is Ben Grubbs working out?
(He is a) very, very smart, very detailed player. I think that he is probably a little better communicator on the line of scrimmage than Carl Nicks. I think that he is going to be a positive influence on Jermon Bushrod. He knows the game and has real good balance. Hes strong at the point. So far so good. He hasnt missed a workout in the offseason conditioning program. Hes close to home. I think that it has been positive for him and us.

Does it add energy for you and the players with the fans cheering?
I stand on the other side so I really dont hear it that much. Im kind of focused on practice but I think our fans enjoy it and thats what is important to us.

Is Luke McCown still going to be in the running for possibly receiving a contract with the team even following a re-signing of Drew Brees?
Were going to take a look and evaluate this now. He beat us at Tampa Bay. Hes has a little bit of mileage in this system because he was under (Jon) Gruden at Tampa Bay, so he kind of knows the same things that Sean (Payton) wants. Hes athletic. He has a good, live arm. He did a good job today getting guys in and out of the huddle, getting guys lined up so he is under the evaluation process right now.

What about the opportunity for Chase Daniel?
You guys have all been here for a bunch of practices. Ive seen a lot of you guys out here for six years. You could probably evaluate the practice. The ball is not on the ground. The quarterback under exchange has been phenomenal. Hes operating within the system and parameters. I think his ball location is getting better and better every practice. He opened up our team period today with a 40-yard strike. I think that Chase is progressing and making the most out of this opportunity.

Man, I really think that signing Grubbs was the key to keeping this offense clicking. We should be pretty much the same on offense. It's been pretty much mixed reviews about Daniels. I wonder if McCown has anything to offer?

Chase Daniel opened O vs D with a 40 yard strike!

Yeah he's a backup at the minute and has got ways to go, but once drew has hung the cleats up, chase could be a good player for us
