Re: Cooper Rush QB

Keep what we have. Probably not much better out there right now than what we have.
Besides, if we lose Brees we're probably 7-9 again or worse.

True, we aren't going to find his replacement by poaching some backup from another team.

This is not for his replacement, but a better backup than what we already have. Should we not always be looking? We did try Nassib this preseason. How's he working out so far?

Re: Cooper Rush QB

Nassib was auditioning for the 3rd QB spot; no one you bring in is unsitting Chase for the #2...

He knows the system too well...

Re: Cooper Rush QB

I am sure when cuts begin we will kick a few tires... we always do that and see if any stick on the practice squad.
