Ryan Griffin - I was wrong (?)
 
Didn't get to watch last night but from what I've read so far Griffin looked pretty bad. I'm eating shoe leather today after calling Griff a better QB than McCown...

What did you all think? Is he in danger of being cut??

He's a work in progress.

Unfortunately, no one films out well playing with the look squad.

The writing was on the wall for a lot of the players last night. No one looked like it was worth taking a chance getting hurt, so you got what you got.

Last preseason game is useless. We should just euthanize the preseason into 2 games, with a bunch of scrimmages on the side.

I posted this in another thread. I was there and when the game got boring, I started watching the line and ignoring Griffin and the ball...I started keying in on this backup tackle dude #60 that no one's heard of, Thomas Welch. He stunk it up terribly, most of the second quarter and pretty much the whole second half. A lot of the third downs and missed plays (bad throws from Griffin etc) were when Griff had a dude in his face because this Welch guy had been either thrown to the ground, or he was spinning around in open space looking for someone to block while the defender had just run right past him. I don't think Griffin looked good last night, but there were other forces at work, everybody on the team was playing badly.

The bottom-of-the-barrel O-line is a huge dropoff from the 1's and 2's. I've seen John Curtis games that were more exciting to watch. The pee wee games they ran in each end zone at halftime were the highlight of the night, and I'm not kidding.

But it's Sean Payton we are talking about here, so my gut tells me that we keep 3 QBs and 2 kickers because you know how he likes his toys.

Griffin was fine with the #2's on offense. The third-team offensive line couldn't get it together. Welch and Weaver are some of the worst camp linemen I can recall in a preseason in a long, long time.

If he can't clearly beat out McNown, then he's simply overvalued by fans who root for the local/underdog/QB of the future. That being said, I would keep him over McNown and wouldn't even blink.

This, he looked good with the two's, but awful with the 3, 4 and 5's.
He did have some drops though.

We'll keep him, 1/2 the players on the field in the 2nd half won't be on the team next week.

I hope we keep him. He has played well enough throughout the pre-season to keep me intrigued about his potential.

Griffin is better than McCown. Griffin can be a franchise quarterback...

He is a developmental QB that is still developing. Hopefully with Drew and Payton tutoring him he will become everything we believe he can be. Mc Cown could be a viable option for a few games if need be.

The deep pass to meachem was an absolute beauty of a throw, couldn't have been more accurate

Struggled with 3rd team but I wouldn't blame that on him, he had guys in the backfield the entire second half
