Backup quarterback ... hear me out
The more I think about it, with the departure of Chase Daniel, we obviously need a backup quarterback. But we are in that awkward phase where Brees will be playing for a while yet and so the Saints don't need to reach for a QB of the future yet.

So maybe we need a stopgap of sorts. It could be too long to groom someone because Brees is not that old and keeps himself in great shape.

We need a guy who can do a good job holding kicks and is willing to contribute in smaller ways and is not pining for the starting job. Someone who understands that he probably won't see any action unless a real injury to Brees occurs.

We need a guy of high character who is dedicated to his profession and to winning, regardless of his role. Someone who, like Brees, keeps himself in amazing shape because he will do whatever it takes to win. Someone whose grit and passion will mesh with Drew's.

We need a guy who has some playing experience and can handle pressure situations. Someone who won't be overwhelmed if he has to come into a game in crunch time if Brees gets roughed up and needs to sit out a series.

We need a guy who isn't old and slow. Someone who is mobile and can in practice help our defense prepare for the speedy Cam Newton and RG3 types.

We need a guy who doesn't cause drama on Twitter and keeps stuff in the locker room. He won't date Kim Kardashian or other divas from the wrong side of the street.

We need a guy who can be embraced by the community and someone who loves the people. Someone who is philanthropic and sees the bigger picture.

We need a guy who was done wrong by his previous team, a team that had very little class. Someone with a chip on his shoulder that won't raise a stink about it. Someone who the fans love but no other team seems to want. He won't get paid a lot but will still keep his mouth shut.

We need someone with class and honor who won't get in trouble in Big Easy. We need a face that everyone knows and will have a smile and a handshake and sign autographs for the kids for as long as they need him to.

We need ...

I thought for sure you were heading JaMarcus' way for a moment there.

Backup Qb should be Sean Canfield since he's been around and knows the system

Re: Backup quarterback ... hear me out
Either Matt Ryan or Tony Romo would be great backup QB's for Drew.
But both those guys are still delusional about their careers, so wait another year or 2 and either of them will be available!
