Re: K Graham resigned, QB Ryan Released

By allowing all the other teams including the rams to fill out the qb position on each teams 53 roster an practice squad it lowers the odds some team claims griffin or offers him a practice squad spot.Still its a risk i would not have done.Also the IR can return from what i understand can only be used one time only each season.So if in the atlanta game say Drew hurt his knee bad an you know the rehab will take say 8 weeks then you sure would wish you had the option of IR can return.I think they will use itthe IR return an could be on the fullback they just wish to see how the injury list looks after two to four games.Question now is who gets cut on the practice squad to make a spot for Griffin,

Who's to say they even want Griffin on the practice squad? We are in win now mode with Drew's age and the backup QB needs the experience. By the time Drew retires, Griffin will be past his prime or close to it...

Why is everyone so caught up in who's the next franchise quarterback when it comes to making QB decisions? It doesn't matter if Griffin is our long term guy of the future or not. The whole point of having backup quarterbacks is to have someone in case your starter gets hurt. In my opinion, Griffin is a better QB than Mccown and therefore gives us the best chance to win should anything happen to Brees. It makes no sense to me how they could take Luke over Ryan.

How do we really know? How much have we seen Griffin against a "starting" defense?

He had one good preseason game against the #2s/3s/4s, at least McCown has seen action against real defenses in his career...

Maybe they just plan on using it next off-season.

Dammit Smashmouth, please rethink this!

Re: K Graham resigned, QB Ryan Released

Griffin has obviously become a fav of many on the board, but it's clear from this move that SP & Mickey are either willing to risk losing him, or know that it would be a longshot for another team to make a roster move just to sign a third-stringer.
If they thought Griffin was better than McCown or the clear replacement for Drew, then no way do they cut him. Fact is, they did.
They played this game last year and won (Rams), so there is a good chance RG has a verbal from Mickey, and that is locker isn't even cleaned out yet.

Re: K Graham resigned, QB Ryan Released

I am not buying into all the love for Griffin.

He doesn't have it nor is he the long term answer for us either. He is expendable. Fact is he didn't show enough that he can contribute to us winning games this season and I seriously doubt next season as well.

If you aren't going to be able to help us win then you are taking up a valuable roster spot.

Be gone with him.
