Re: Backup QB

Not saying that Chase is starting QB material but he has been playing behind the second string offensive line. I believe he'll be much better when he gets more time. It's been pointed out already that he goes through his progressions slower than Brees. Maybe that extra second the first string line could give him could make all the difference.

He looked pretty good Sunday night. We could do a lot worse.
Halo and papz like this.

Canfield is really a complete joke, and I have no idea why McClown is on the team.

As much as it pains me to say this, they should employ Jake Delhomme or Jeff Garcia as the backup QB. Seriously, could save a season if Brees pops an arm or something.
I used to think the same thing but Chase is more than a capable QB. He looked good once he settled down and he had a second and third teem line in front of him which may be our shallowest position on the team.

Re: Backup QB

Well I've heard it before... A back up QB is like a spare tire. You don't want it around until its needed. IMO... if something did happen to Drew I'd still be happy with Chase.
I don't want to go crazy and spend all kinds of money towards a guy who we may never see except for pre season and routes

Re: Backup QB

It's time to start looking for a back up QB. I wonder if Payton is researching QB's with his free time?

hahaha.... you're right Burning. I think Dilfer should just be very quiet, and hope nobody notices him. Or get every morning going "thankyou thankyou thankyou thankyou...."

Wonder what the Billy Joe's are doing these days? Is George Blanda still alive?

Re: Backup QB

chase is the man. he,s consistent. he always seems to drive our team down to the red zone year after year and throw a darn pick. then he with hands on helmet runs straight for drew on the sidelines lookin for answers, then drew pulls off favorite w.c.fields line, bug off boy u bother me, then drew pops another seed, bbq flavored. yep 4 yrs going. lol

Re: Backup QB

As a general rule, I think it's better for a team to invest in a solid offensive line than in a great backup QB.

Daniel has been solid this offseason. Maybe tucks and runs too much, but I believe that would change behind the starting offensive line. He does what it takes to move the chains, love that about him. I also don't blame the pick against the Pata against him for a second. I think he could win us a few games if it came down to it.
