Actually, I'd like Fitzpatrick, who I think would be really good with our offense, or David Carr. People think I'm crazy when I say Carr, but he has been a solid backup for the Giants.

Look at the time Chase Daniel was here. He never started a game. He attempted only 9 passes over 3 years.

Brees is sneaky and small and nimble, but deceptively tough and knows his limits. Kind of like John Stockton. Pretty unlikely to get hurt and will definitely play through any minor injuries.

When a backup QB comes into a game unexpectedly without a full week of practice reps, we will be very conservative with him and call plenty of running plays, because coming out with all guns blazing with a rusty QB and wideouts on different timing is suicide.

This strategy is where Tebow comes in - he leads, he's tough, can run and fall forward when being tackled. With the ultra-conservative game plan, Tebow would be very effective. And with the game on the line, he has a knack for getting it done in an ugly way when the chips are down.

This is why I think it would be nice to have Tebow, instead of a guy who everyone thinks is a mini-Drew and is supposed to save our bacon by throwing the ball all over the field. That's a pipe dream. This team is built around Drew and if anything happens to him we morph into a conservative power running team to try to hold down the fort until Drew gets back.

I like the idea of Cassel.

Why not Ryan Leaf ? When he's on work release.
