Re: What would you take for Griffin?

Everyone here says he would go for a fourth or fifth yet he is good enough to take over and fill Drews shoes as the future franchise Qb.

He's a good backup that can get it done enough to win maybe a few games when your starting Qb is out for a short period of time.
I don't see him being the future.

Griffin had the misfortune of playing the 2nd half and without the starters, and they were all bad. I would not trade Griffin and I wouldn't think they would want McCowan. Griffin has a cannon and it showed last night.

Re: What would you take for Griffin?

Problem is by the time Drew retires Griffin will be in his 30's. I also don't think he is as good as everyone here thinks. Remember Chase was suppose to be our future.

It seems every young QB who becomes a Saint will be Drew successor. The Saints next great QB will NOT be an UDFA.

I bet the Bucs will trade them Glennon. First thing that came to my mind. Keep Griffin and put Kilgore on the PS. Just let McNown go and let the Rams pick him up.

Re: What would you take for Griffin?

Quite the conundrum isn't it?

Neither is the future, due to timing; and, neither is the present. Until, one of them becomes the present through happenstance like what happened to the Rams.

It is such a delicate balancing act that I would let the Rams worry about their problems and stand pat on QBs.

It is one thing to say a BU QB looks good in preseason, its a different animal to wake up minus a starting QB and say that guy is the everything as of now.

If indeed Griffin is what Payton sees as a Drew Brees type replacement then that isn't to be taken lightly and you don't just deal that sort of talent away. When you look at our receivers and what they can do, a cannon is what we would need to be able to maximize their speed and value.

I am still standing pat though. Not every opportunity should be exploited, some of them may come to bite you in the arse.
