Joe Vitt won't reveal Saints' QBs

METAIRIE, LA. -- New Orleans Saints interim coach Joe Vitt won't reveal the quarterback rotation against the Arizona Cardinals for the Hall of Fame game on Sunday in Canton, Ohio, saying only that it will be similar to other preseason openers.
Look for Drew Brees to play a series or two, followed by Chase Daniel, Luke McCown and Sean Canfield.

Daniel, in his fourth year with the Saints, says he sees no competition from McCown, a nine-year veteran who signed with New Orleans in June and started the 2011 regular-season opener for Jacksonville.
Daniel, the Saints' No. 1 quarterback in all offseason workouts while Brees remained unsigned, insists he is trying to win the starting job.
"What competition?" Daniel said when asked about McCown after Friday's practice. "I am trying to take Drew Brees' spot. I don't see a competition with any other quarterback but Drew on the roster right now."
Daniel's boldness is more a state of mind than a statement of fact. Brees, the reigning AP NFL Offensive Player of the Year and new owner of the richest contract in league history, is untouchable.
Daniel, entering his fourth year with the Saints, has thrown eight passes. He ran the first team the entire offseason, though, while Brees was negotiating his contract.
"I thought it was good for him to be in a position where he is the guy, he is running with the ones and having to exert himself and be the leader," Brees said. "I tell him that if you are not thinking about taking my job then you are thinking the wrong thing."
Vitt confirmed starting cornerbacks Jabari Greer (sports hernia) and Patrick Robinson (shoulder) will miss Sunday's game along with rookie wide receiver Nick Toon (foot).
The Cardinals held their final practice of the week Friday, a two-hour session in the morning, before heading home to pack for the trip to Canton.
Coach Ken Whisenhunt said Ryan Williams will not play against the Saints as the team takes a cautious approach to the young running back's return from a torn patella tendon and subsequent surgery that sidelined him all of last season.
Safety Adrian Wilson has a sore calf and might sit out the Hall of Fame game, too.
The Cardinals won't be back in Flagstaff for 10 days. After the game Sunday, they will travel to Kansas City and will practice there with the Chiefs leading up to Thursday's preseason game between the two teams.

I think we travel straight to New England and practice with them before we play them. I wonder why they didn't mention that?
