Tebow holds a mean clipboard too.

Rex just was a jerk and never let Tebow hold it.

Tebow didn't like holding clipboards with crayon writing on it....
It's that type of organization.

If not Daniel, who's been here 3 years and knows the system, does it really matter who the backup is? And has Daniel left already?

That is probably true.

Who will back up Drew NOW?

Who have we got on radar to replace Chase? How much do we spend?

Call Vince Young. He wants back into the NFL. Why not as a back-up. I know he's a head case but Payton can handle him.

Re: Backup quarterback ... hear me out

I don't know who, but my gut tells me that this time around Payton is going to go the Mark Brunell route, and get somebody old, off the couch.... somebody experienced who can hold field goals for veteran minimum, one year deal, and who has a good "baseball cap" style, of making suggestions, seeing things -- not just holding that clipboard, but also talking the QB talk to Drew.

I don't feel like they are going to groom another big elaborate youth project just YET, because they coached up Chase for 4 years and then didn't really get anything in return for him, in the end. Also I forget who it was, but back in 2006 Payton had somebody kinda old back there behind Brees. I think this time Payton goes back to that model, of an old experienced guy back there, who has too rickety knees as a starting QB but can hold field goals in his sleep and isn't bothered by pressure.

Idea: maybe this means they will now reconsider Garrett Hartley, since Chase held for Hartley in high school, and those two were kinda like a pair that went together. Seriously, that was part of their thing. Both came to the Saints around the same time and they were originally team mates in high school. This could mean something.
