Re: New Orleans Saints sign Griffin Neal as their fourth quarterback

Stats are insane- 30 passing TD's, 25 rushing
why we thought we needed to sign him now is the real mystery

Re: New Orleans Saints sign Griffin Neal as their fourth quarterback

Drafted a QB last year.

Signed a project QB this year.

May draft a QB this year as well.

It's clear Sean Payton wants to have options once Brees finally decides to hang up his cleats.

Re: New Orleans Saints sign Griffin Neal as their fourth quarterback

Seems like the Rams once signed an extra arm for training camp from the NFL Europe Amsterdam team...

Kid from Northern Iowa Univ, had tried out for Green Bay who already had Brett Favre and Ty Detmer, stocked grocery store shelves while playing some ball in the ArenaFootball League, found his way with the Lord, gets signed by the Rams, allocated to NFL-Europe...

His big break came as an unfortunate break, tear for starter Trent Green during training camp; and then suddenly Kurt Warner stepped up and seized the moment...

If the Saints' success under Coach Payton has taught us anything, it's not how you get here, but what you do with the opportunity...

Just ask Marques Colston (nearly Mr. Irrelevant), Pierre Thomas, Tim Lelito, Khiry Robinson...Anyways, you get the idea...

Agreed that he's probably just a warm body. But JP nailed it with the Kurt Warner example. If you dig deep enough and look under every rock you're eventually gonna find something special. Not saying this guy is it, but on the other hand..hell, why not?

This is quite an intriguing signing. But the article has an error. The Hildsheim Invaders didn't play in the GFL last year but in the GFL2 which is Germanys second division. The team won and moved up to GLF this year.

Yeah, knew something wasn't right...


Kidding aside, we're gonna have to get a Football Europe Group going so you can educate us on where the state of the game is there without the Goodell, League filter...

Gave him another 30 minute session right after Tulane's pro day, gave him a portion of the playbook to learn, and signed him to a three year deal after Friday's pro day and before the rookie minicamp...

He's gotta be more than just a camp arm...
