Back-Up QB

That\'s the same thing they said about Ken Dorsey CanLoomis

This is what Shaun King has proven to us throughout his years in the league --> :eck05:

With that said, I would love to bring a guy like Gus Frerotte in there. The guy should be starting period. I would love to have O\'Sullivan back here, we all know that! But the Saints always seems to manage to draft a solid qb in the later rounds of the draft so I wouldn\'t be too concerned. Bouman is serviceable for the time being.

Back-Up QB

Although he might be off the board before we are ready to invest a pick in a backup QB, I would love to see AD McPherson drafted. First, being the die hard Seminoles fan that I am, I would love to see him in Black and Gold. Also, he comes in the mold of Aaron Brooks except with even better athleticism and a stronger arm. Indeed, his past transgression provide a big question mark to him, but I think he would be a great backup and even the successor to Brooks should the Saints eventually want to go that route. But his name is flying up draft boards and I dont think investing a high pick in a backup QB should be a priority. Anyone have Jeff Blakes number? They could always get him to return.

mike mcmahon

YES>.I saw him in the indy game-they lost, but he showed great promise....He would really push and he would only cost a fifth...

I like King. I watched him a Tulane, and he was impressive. He\'s not a game-breaker by any means. But he is a guy, IMO, who with a supporting cast, can distribute the ball well, take what is given to him, and be successful in the NFL. I wouldn\'t mind seeing him as insurance. He\'s a better option right now then Bouman.

papz, you are kidding right?

Sorry shadow, but I did get a good laugh out of this. Couch had a rag arm in college and he has a rag arm in the NFL. I don\'t think I have ever seen him throw a deep ball. And he is not mobile. But if you mean as a back-up, as long as he is cheap. I think he has zero chance of getting the starting job.

McPherson is all the athlete AB is, and he seems to be smarter(which isn\'t saying much). Problem with AB is he is reluctant to scramble anymore. He had the most success in his first year when he was running all over the place. Now he wants to prove himself as a \"pocket passer\", which hasn\'t produced stellar results.

I think overall we should find someone with strong character. Someone who will not be discouraged by the transparent politics that is the QB situation in New Orleans. Tim Couch is definitely NOT that. That guy cried because the fans in Clevland booed him. What will he do if he comes here. The New Orleans fans have boos ready in their back pockets.

Back-Up QB

I like king myself. I don\'t think we need a back up QB at this point. Spending money on a Back up qb and taking a cap hit for cutting someone and still having to pay money out to them... Kingsbury is a sleeper in development. I see him edging Bouman out at number 2.
