I don't remember Ben Watson being this much work...

I heard a Falcon stubbed his toe. Better reserve 20 or 30 pages for that.

He might actually have some decent trade value at a position we can afford to deal.

As Bobby Hebert said, he's no Drew Brees but from all the starting QB's he's seen in the NFL, McCown would be about middle of the pack as an NFL starter.

I don't think we have the supporting cast right now to seriously compete for postseason if Brees went down, so McCown doesn't really do us much good other than fill in for a few games if Drew needs to sit.

I think its worth a gamble to trade McCown to either add some help along the O-line or a mid-round pick in next year's draft.

I wonder if McCown for Leary straight up is workable?

As long as the Mickster understands, we don't have to give up draft picks!

If anything, I'd find a way to package Byrd with a contract redo to minimize our cap hit...

Then you can let Bell get on the field and justify taking him with two draft picks...

No way the Cowboys trading for him. Prescott has looked good in preseason and will get the time to see if he is the long term answer

I still cant believe the money they gave him. Watson showed that Brees can work with any above average TE. We paid a man that loves dropping the ball

Dak has looked good thus far however but the Cows have no backup and trust me, rookie QB's will eventually come down to earth once NFL coaches start game planning. Luke could do well with that stout line, a run game and a elite WR.
