If you look at the whole time that he's been here, more often than not the Sean Payton model is to have a semi-washed up, old journeyman veteran guy for a backup QB. The guy with the rickety knees and the old-school looking chin strap. THAT'S a Payton backup QB.

Chase was really the exception to the rule, and he may have had more to do with being the holder for Hartley, since they had a history together. I like this move. All I care about is the guy having nerves of steel when it's time to hold a FG with the playoffs or Super Bowl on the line, and this guy has seen the playoffs before, he's held field goals in the playoffs, he's not going to be freaked out by the pressure of holding the kick in a hostile stadium, indoors, outdoors, in a snowstorm, downpour, etc. etc. And he can speak "QB speak" to Brees about what is happening on the field, while wearing the baseball cap. That's all we really need.

I think Morstead might be the holder now that Daniel is gone, since he did it for Kasay when him and Hartley were sharing kicking duties in the preseason.

I don't know if he will make it past camp.

I like that we have the Falcon's play book though. Probably keep him around while we pick his brain, lol.

Or he gets to know the Saints' - truncated version at least - playbook, gets released before the season starts and is picked up by the Failclowns in a desperate attempt to copy the Saints' offense - just like last year.

It doesn't matter who our backup is frankly. If they see the field we are either dead in the water or laying a beat down.

Not quite sure what you thought is but Rogers sat for 3 years coming out of Cali. He sat behind Farve. Maybe you forgot.....

He didn't sit to learn, Favre kept not-retiring. He was likely ready in year 2.
