Will Luke McCown be on trading block?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; McCown preseason success is due in great part to our WRs and Sean Payton's tutelage.... Not because he is having a break out season now. Griffin is going to the PS, and McCown will be the BU this season....

100% agree. McCown has looked decent due to everything around him. He's not a bad player at all, he's just not an NFL starter. Having said that there are franchises who stink the place out who would probably be keen to start him!

As regards Pryor and EJ Manuel, would I start McCown above them? It's not always as clear cut as yes and no. There are so many situationals in play. Can Mcown lead either of those franchises to significantly better records than with what they have? I doubt it. Is it worth chucking these guys in and building, whilst, rather negatively, defending a decent draft position next year? Yes. So whilst I agree that McCown would likely get the nod over both of those it's not always that easy.

Drafting in 2014/2015 for an heir apparent to Brees is not going to happen. In my opinion. I think Griffin is well and truly being placed in that position at the moment. He has looked very tidy in pre-season and can learn over a good few years. Defence is well and truly still our concern and will be into 2014 and possibly 2015 (although this is when we may need to start looking at all sorts of other offensive issues as well). We shall see though. I could be well and truly wrong and we go and draft Jonny Manziel! (Not happening but funny to throw it in)

Re: Will Luke McCown be on trading block?

I dont know who makes these rules. McCown cant start? I dont believe it.

Anything can happen. The Texans took Matt Schaub, who was Vicks backup
& paid him a billion dollars.

I would never say "cant," because this is America, and you can get a job
just by walking off the elevator on the wrong floor.

Luke McCown has looked decent due to everything around him. I still remember him beating us when he was with Tampa.

I would start McCown over Sanchez any and every day of the week.

Any GM starting McCown over either of them is stupid. McCown has been in the league for YEARS. His ceiling is serviceable back up. If we're going off preseason performances like it seems we are since everybody is praising McCown, then Manuel has looked just as good if not better. And so has Pryor. They're doing it with much less, and Pryor is doing it behind a dreadful o line. McCown is the one that has people believing the hype machine.

I don't see the Saints putting McCown on the trade block but if we do waive Griffin, I think someone scoops him up. I usually don't care to keep a 3rd quarterback on the 53, but I'd hate to lose him somewhere else.

Re: Will Luke McCown be on trading block?

I know roster spots are like gold dust and for a very good reason but we cannot afford to waive Griffin. I think he has looked really good and has 'protege' written all over him.

Question about waiving him in the next round of cuts then. Assuming the next official cut block is to get down to your 53, then if someone claims him off of waivers do they HAVE to put him in their 53, assuming they claim him after the cut deadline? Does that make sense?
