Backup QB
 
Saints are really screwed if Brees has to go out for anytime. I am convinced that the Saints do not have a capable backup QB on their roster at this time. If something were to happen to Brees, it is pretty much an automatic 3-13 season. Chase Daniel has been a tease, and has not shown any semblance of an NFL QB. 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.

That might very well happen if the need arises. However for the time being its easier and better to keep developing young guys and try to make them good enough. That might get you a nice pick in a trade down the line.

I thought about that during the HOF game & did my best to temper my judgement with the fact it was the first preseason game, but what has Daniels done in the past to ease a fan's concern?

It is what is and backups are what they are, backups. Daniels looks serviceable to me as a backup, which means he comes in for a few plays to manage a game if Drew dings his hand on someone's helmet or something, but not necessarily as a long-term replacement.

I agree with Crusader, develop the young guys and somewhere along the line, you end up with a trade ... but from what I saw, McCown is going to need a-hell-of-a-lot of 'developing', :).

I like Daniel. He's a fighter. He has skills. But, the one guy I would get if he was available would be Colt McCoy.

I think its a no brainer if Bree's goes down so does our season.

Lets face it Chase is service at best. He's just a body to hold down the position until we get Bree's back on the field. We could do worse at the back up QB position like say Canfield. lol.

Canfield is complete garbage... Chase can atleast move the ball down the field, he just has to watch those red-zone ints

Speaking of Dilfer, that dude should be on a soap opera. He gets so freaking emotional during those Elite 11 camps. And to think, he actually won a super bowl. Maybe the QB isn't always the most important player... when your defense sets an NFL record for fewest points allowed, anyway :p
