Will Luke McCown be on trading block?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Never heard anything about it, but you would think since he has shown up to be pretty good in the preseason, teams in desperate need for a QB (Oakland or Buffalo) would be looking around at some teams backups. thoughts?...

Luke has had a great preseason yes.... But, I don't think his strong showing here is gonna merit anybody giving him serious consideration.

Interesting. My only thing is if we had to actually start him he might just win a bunch of games, he looked that good. Never had that feeling with Chase, he always had a couple of serious weak spots in pre-season either an ill advised pick or just lapse in judgement.

I'd have to say no, even if we were desperate. Gotta have a decent QB otherwise the season is completely lost.

The teams in need of a QB aren't going to win with Luke or whomever they play.

System QB...he looks good in this one. Give him OAK's line and it would be pretty sad. Have to keep him since those teams you mentioned would take him away from us just as insurance for EJ, Tuel, Pryor, Flynn, etc. I do feel for OAK and BUF, though...it makes for miserable seasons of tons and tons of TUMS when the QB situation is shaky. Been there a few times in the 3 decades of my Saints addiction.

EJ Manuel and Terrell Pryor are going to be good. They won't be the reason their teams suck. Luke McCown is a back up. He can't start anywhere in the NFL. Not even Jacksonville.

Don't get caught up in the hype machine. Any intelligent GM is picking McCown over Manuel and Pryor right now.

McCown may not be a starter anywhere in the NFL but he an ideal backup and could win games with this team.

IMO Griffin is the heir to Brees and having McCown around puts him in a situation where he can learn from two very professional quarterbacks.

I like Ryan Griffin a lot, I even have his signature on my Splash card, but we are almost definitely going to draft a QB in 2014 or 2015 as the heir apparent to Brees.
