Saints have to keep all three QBs

Luke plays as good to me as some low end nfl starters an Griffin is close also.Ok so no 4th te or 6th wr.Point is Saints lucky to have two good backups an with Drew at age 35 odds are he could miss a few games the next two to three years.Much more easy to find good Wr an Te off wavier wire as compared to how hard it is to find good qbs.Also Kilgore looks ok as good as canfield ever looked to me. I would be ok to see Saints put kilgore on an off practice squad.The big fact is Drew is 35 not 30 or 25 an i think the Saints could win with Luke or Griffin.:

IMO, the only way the Saints keep 2 back-up QBs is if there is a concern over Brees' oblique injury not fully healed.

Re: Saints have to keep all three QBs

I'm feeling Griffin right now. Especially after that bomb to Morgan.

We've kept 3 before, seems smart to me. Both guys looked good tonite and together they make an insurance package the gecko would be jealous of.

I think Griffin has a slight edge on Luke only cus he has a ton of upside and he is cheaper. Also he has looked a little better overall.

Re: Saints have to keep all three QBs

The young Griff is impressive and McCown has done nothing to hurt himself. It will be interesting to see what happens down the line.

Re: Saints have to keep all three QBs

I think we have to keep them both, especially with Brees still injured right now. That's a nagging injury that could crop up again sometime during the season.

Re: Saints have to keep all three QBs

The edge to me goes to Griffin.... And you have a lot of talent to consider so this will be a year where every spot counts. Because teams were clamoring over Griffin last season he was added to the active roster. This season he is showing promise. McCown will still be available if there is and injury.

Re: Saints have to keep all three QBs

as always, injuries at other spots will dictatet if we can carry three. If Grubbs, Evans, Bailey, C.Rob, Lorig and Brees are all healthy, then we can.

After last night, both Griffin & McCown deserve jobs. Pretty obvious with our 2-1 passing game plan that we wanted an extended look

Re: Saints have to keep all three QBs

With the versatility the guys on defense have, it should increase our chances to keep both.
